The SuperSump System is one of the most common installations by Ayers basement Systems. It is a top of the line product that receives invading water from a drainage system and pumps it a safe distance from the home. The SuperSump has an air tight lid that prevents water evaporation from the system which can distort air quality. It also has specially engineered holes drilled in the bucket so it can receive invading water seeping up from the ground as well as from the drainage system.

The before photo shows where the leaking water had damaged, discolored, and allowed mold growth on this crawl space’s walls. Making things even worse, the leaking water had also caused musty smells to the crawl space. In the after photo, you can see the solution we provided. CleanSpace is a plastic vapor barrier that was used to cover the dirt floor crawl space. Together with the SilverGlo Wall Insulation and Froth Pak foam that are covering the walls in the after photo, water will be kept out from this crawl space permanently.

Job Stories From Cedar Springs, MI
FlexiSpan Sealed Floor to Ceiling Crack on Cedar Springs, MI Wall

This homeowner had a floor to ceiling crack on their basement wall that was allowing water to easily enter the home. Our team of experts installed the FlexiSpan wall system to seal off the crack and prevent water from entering. We started the installation by excavating a small section of the flooring at the base of the crack in order to place a drainage grate to remove intruding water that is able to enter through the crack. Next, we used the FlexiSpan material to seal off the crack. This sealant is extremely flexible and is able to move with the shifting wall to keep the crack sealed and prevent it from expanding.

FlexiSpan Repairs Crack and Eliminates Water in Cedar Springs, MI Home

Megan K. contacted us because she wanted to fix the floor to ceiling crack in her basement wall that was allowing water to enter the home.

The FlexiSpan wall system was installed to seal the crack and address any intruding water. We first removed a section of the floor at the base of the crack to place a drainage grate. This grate was used to collect any intruding water that was able to enter through the FlexiSpan sealant and then ensured it was efficiently discarded from the area. Next, we sealed the wall crack with the FlexiSpan sealant that is able to shift with the moving wall, which ensured the crack was completely sealed and would not grow any further as the wall moved.

Bowed Cedar Springs, MI Wall Stabilized With Geo-Lock Wall Anchors

Kevin and Jane C. had a bowed block wall in their basement with horizontal cracks. The wall was bowed bad enough that one of the doors in the basement could not close.

To prevent the wall from bowing any further and potentially shift it back to its original position, we installed the Geo-Lock wall anchor system. Specialized earth anchors were embedded in stable soil outside of the home and attached to the failing foundation wall with steel wall anchors, which were secured to the wall with steel rods. We tightened the system into place and the wall was permanently held in place and stabilized. We also provided the homeowner with a tightening kit that can help pull the wall back to its original position over time.

Wall Anchors Stabilized Shifting Wall in Cedar Springs, MI

Philip M. called because he was concerned about a crack in his basement foundation wall. He believed the tree roots outside of his home were causing the cracks and although he made and installed his own version of wall anchors to stabilize the wall, the problem still persisted.

In order to stabilize the failing wall and prevent it from shifting even further in the future, we installed the Geo-Lock wall anchor system. The installation began with us excavating the soil outside of the wall to embed steel earth anchors into stable soil that would be able to support the weight of the wall. The earth anchor was then connected to the wall with a steel wall anchor and tightened into place with steel rods. Once the system was secured into place, the wall was immediately stabilized and would no longer shift or crack.

The homeowner also received a tightening kit that is used to tighten the anchors over time to potentially pull the wall back to its original position.

WaterGuard and BrightWall Installed in Cedar Springs, MI Basement

Charles M. had a crack in his basement foundation wall that originated at the sewer line and was leaking water into his home.

To resolve his issue, we first installed the WaterGuard perimeter drainage system. The WaterGuard pipes were placed at the base of each wall around the interior perimeter of the basement. Water coming in through the wall flows down into the system and is then directed to the sump pump to be discharged from the home. Excavation was needed for this installation because the piping was placed underneath the flooring, but not to worry, it was restored with concrete fill.

Next we installed BrightWall paneling on the basement walls. This paneling cleaned up the look of the basement and was made from a waterproof and vapor proof material that prevents moisture from entering the home through the walls. BrightWall also worked well with WaterGuard because it directed any water coming in through the wall down behind the paneling and into the drainage system.

FlexiSpan Wall System Installed in Cedar Springs, MI Home

Brian S. called because he was looking to finish his basement but a crack in the foundation wall was allowing water to enter, which created multiple puddles of standing water on the floor.

In order to address the crack in the wall and prevent water from flowing out onto the floor, we installed the FlexiSpan system. FlexiSpan is a sealant that prevents water from leaking into the home due to cracks in a foundation wall. The flexible material in the sealant helps it move with the wall to ensure it’s completely sealed off and will not re-crack if the wall continues to shift. A section of the flooring at the base of the wall was also removed in order to place a floor drain that collects any intruding water and discards it, rather than allowing it to leak out on the floor. The flooring was restored with concrete fill and the homeowner no longer had to deal with water issues.

Geo-Lock Wall Anchors Restore Bowed Basement Wall in Cedar Springs, MI

This home was showing sings of serious wall failure and the homeowner was looking for a permanent fix. The block wall had horizontal cracks and it was beginning to bow inward. The issue was severe enough that one of the doors in the basement was unable to close. 

In order to stabilize the wall and prevent it from shifting any further we installed the Geo-Lock Wall Anchor System. Our team first removed sections of soil out away from the home to place steel earth anchors into stable soil. The anchors were then attached to the bowing wall with wall anchors and fastened with galvanized steel rods. Next we tightened the system, which immediately held the wall in place and prevented it from shifting in the future. The homeowner was also given a tightening kit, which allows the wall to be tightened over time to hopefully shift it back to its original position. When the installation was finished, we restored the landscape outside of the house and the homeowner was then worry free.

Handling a Flooded Field in Cedar Springs

Larry first called us in 2013 because his outside sump pump wasn't working as well as it should and the basement was occasionally flooding. He decided against waterproofing at that time, instead doing some work on his own. 

But he called again last month with water coming in his basement still. He suspected that the culprit was standing water in the field outside of his home, and he needed a way to route any incoming water to his sump.

We installed WaterGuard inside of his basement to direct the water to the pump, and now that field is no match for his basement.

Pine Lake Ave in Cedar Springs
After removing some bushes in the front of my home, I noticed that one of the bushes had been holding moisture up against the wood. Part of the wood is damaged and peeling. Before I planted flowers there, I wanted to know if any repairs should be done as well as what I can do to prevent further damage.
