Larry called us with a crawl space in need of a makeover. With winter approaching, now is the time to secure your house against the elements, and that's what we did on his project.

After installing the Clean Space vapor barrier system to encapsulate the crawl space and protect it - and the house above it - from the ground's ambient moisture, we added SilverGlo insulating wall panels.

With these two changes, not only will the crawl space be protected from the ground below it, but the house will be protected, keeping floors warmer and energy bills lower.

Our customer called because his neighbor had had his crawl space encapsulated by us and he wanted "the same treatment." Upon exploring the crawl space, it was clear he needed it. After clearing out debris, we installed the CleanSpace vapor barrier system with drainage matting and SilverGlo insulation panels. We also installed a SaniDry dehumidifier to take care of ambient moisture, and CleanSpace vent covers to protect the crawl space from the elements.

The crawl space of this Charlevoix home had a funny smell-likely from mildew and mold as a result of moisture in the space. A remedy for both the smell and the moisture was the installation of CleanSpace, a durable crawl space liner to seal of the home from the earth. Made with an antimicrobial additive, this liner has multiple layers of plastic to make it durable and tear resistant, providing a barrier from moisture and mold. In order to eradicate the smell and mold even more, we sprayed an anti-microbial compound throughout the space to help reduce allergens. This crawl space is now a healthy, usable space.

Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Repair

Water or moisture in your basement or crawl space leads to mold and eventually to rot. Mold is dangerous to you and your family's health and rot is dangerous to the structural integrity of your home. Ayers Basement Systems protects your home from these dangers using a patented and proven waterproofing system. Our complete waterproofing systems comes with a transferable, lifetime, dry-basement warranty. 

Basement Waterproofing System in Charlevoix

We can fix:

  • Wet Basements
  • Damp or Moldy Crawl Spaces
  • Leaking Wall Cracks
  • High Humidity in the Space
  • Uncomfortable Temperatures

Wet Basement Waterproofing

We are members of Basement Systems, the international network of waterproofing contractors. As members of the network our specialists receive advanced training and certification as well as access to patented basement waterproofing products. We install an interior drainage system complete with sump pump and back up sump. The systems is hidden but keeps your basement permanently dry. The addition of a specially designed basement dehumidifier prevents mold growth in the space. 

Crawl Space Encapsulation

We protect your crawl space using a similar waterproofing system. The crawl space is encapsulated with insulated matting and a thick vinyl vapor barrier that runs along the floor and up against the crawl space walls. A crawl space sump pump and dehumidifier are added to complete the system. Water is kept out of the crawl space, mold and rot are prevented and the floors above the crawl space are kept comfortable. 


Foundation Repair & Concrete Leveling

Foundation problems are serious issues that need to be corrected by a skilled professional. Ayers Basement Systems is Charlevoix's skilled professional. We offer permanent foundation repair and restoration services. 

Foundation Pier System in Charlevoix

We can fix:

  • foundation wall cracks
  • Separating floors
  • Soil issues
  • bowing walls
  • Sunken concrete slabs

Professional Foundation Repair

If you have a sinking or settling foundation, we use foundation piers to drill down to load bearing soil. Depending on the exact issue you are facing, we may use helical piers, push piers, slab piers or helical deck piers. We can also correct bowing basement walls using wall supports, wall anchors or sprayed concrete. We can even fix sunken floors over your crawl space with crawl space jacks. Whatever foundation challenge you face, we have a solution. 

Updated Mudjacking Techniques

We use an updated mudjacking technique (aka slab jacking) to lift and level sunken concrete slabs. We drill small holes in the sunken slab and inject PolyLEVEL, a polyurethane foam beneath the slab. The foam expands to fill all the gaps beneath the slab and lifts it back to its original position. The foam is much lighter than the traditional mudslurry used in this process. This means less stress on the bearing soil. PolyLEVEL also cures in hours rather than the days mudslurry takes. We offer the best concrete leveling services for homeowners and businesses in Charlevoix.

Job Stories From Charlevoix, MI
TrenchDrain and WaterGuard Keep Water Out of Charlevoix, MI Basement

This Charlevoix, MI homeowner was interested in an effective French drainage system that would keep water out of her basement. 

The first step to eliminating water in this basement was to install a TrenchDrain, which is used to collect any water from outside that could leak into the home through an exterior door. A section of the flooring was removed to place the drain, which has large openings to make sure water easily enters, rather than flowing out onto the floor. 

WaterGuard was also installed, which is a perimeter drainage system that ensures any water that could enter the home through the walls or floors is collected and drained into the home’s sump pump. For this installation we removed a small portion of the flooring around the perimeter of the basement to place piping that water will filter into and then exit the home. Any water collected from the trench drain directly filters into the WaterGuard system to make sure the basement is completely protected.

Hi! I was hoping to get an estimate on a sump pump Installation for my crawl space.

We have a slab approximately 9 x 14' under our spa tub that has settled approximately 1.5-2" as it is poured on the edge of a terraced hill(pictures are available at your request). Need to have the slab raised to return it closer to level with only a slight drop for drainage so that the water in the spa is level. The empty spa is approximately 1600 lbs and can be slid partially off the slab to provide access to more of the slab for boring and lifting. Looking for an estimate to level this slab. Thanks

We bought an old farmhouse in December. We know the basement has some leaks but have some foundation and flooring support concerns as well. We just would like someone to come look at it and tell us what we need done so we can prioritize the work that needs to be done and take care of anything immediate.

Our finished walkout basement has a history of leakage along one wall. although built in 1993, the house does not not have a sump. approx 8 years ago, a local contractor had installed grace fire & ice membrane on the foundation and routed a new solid pipe foundation drain ( as the old drain line was perforated and filled with roots). during a 3 inch rainfall event last month, we had water intrusion and the basement wall has been damp since.....even with two dehumidifiers running.
