Wall Anchors Hold Back Trouble in Clare, MI

A bowing wall can threaten a home’s entire structural integrity. Common signs of a bowing wall are horizontal cracking (seen just below the window in the before picture), stair step cracks, and walls that lean towards the top. This Clare, MI home was bowing so far inward that all 3 of those symptoms could be seen. The severity of the foundation damage would require both an internal and external solution.

Our Geo-Lock wall anchors – the external solution – are seen in the after photo, ironically from the inside of the basement. The anchors work by pulling the collapsing wall outward and back toward its original straight position. In the after photo, you can see the Geo-Lock wall plates. These are connected by steel rods to earth anchors that were placed in stronger, unharmed soil. In total, it took 4 wall anchors to pull this basement’s walls out, but it’s a small price to pay when you consider that the Geo-Lock system will continue to improve the walls conditions for years to come.

Dirt crawl spaces are a pain to deal with. They let in outside elements such as water, cold air and bugs - all things no one wants in their home. The first step to eliminating these problems is fixing the water leakage by having a sump pump installed. The next step is isolating the house from the earth. This is where our CleanSpace system that is shown in the picture, works great. It encapulates the entire crawl space making sure no water, bugs, or unwanted cold/hot air can get in. The third step is to make sure all windows and vents are properly sealed off to the outside as well. Lastly, you want to condition or dehumidify the crawl space air. We have a great unit for this called the SaniDry Sedona, also pictured. It's efficient at stopping mold growth and getting rid of that musty smell.

Job Stories From Clare, MI
Clare, MI Basement Receives Waterproofing and Foundation Support Systems

Jason M. had water seeping into his basement and a bowed foundation wall that he was looking to get fixed.

We first installed the effective PowerBrace system to stabilize the failing wall and prevent it from bowing any further. The specialized steel beams were installed at the base of the failing wall and to the joists above the wall, which was then attached securely in place with steel brackets. Once we tightened the beams into place, the wall was immediately stabilized and would no longer be a cause for concern.

Next, we installed the WaterGuard perimeter drainage system to collect and discard intruding water. Specialized drainage pipes were installed underneath the flooring around the perimeter of the basement in order to collect water that was entering through the walls. Any collected water was then automatically directed to the sump pump to be pumped outside of the home.

The effective SuperSump sump pump system was installed next to ensure water from the WaterGuard system was properly discarded from the home. This sump pump included an effective Zoeller pump, a sturdy liner and an airtight lid that would certainly protect the home from unwanted water seepage.

The IceGuard system was installed on the home’s discharge line to give exiting water an easy route outside of the home, even if the pipes become frozen. This system prevents exiting water from re-entering the home and causing a flood. We also installed a LawnScape outlet on the end of the discharge line to carry exiting water far away from the home.

Stabilizing Failing Foundation Walls in Clare, MI

Shelly F. called because she had a basement wall that was cracked and bowing inward and there were also multiple cracks located on the other walls in the basement. She was looking for a solution to save her bowing wall and prevent the other walls from bowing in the future.

To prevent the bowing wall from continuing to shift inward, we installed the Geo-Lock wall anchor system. The soil outside of the failing wall was excavated in order to place a steel earth anchor into stable soil. The anchor was then attached the foundation wall with a steel wall anchor and secured into place with steel rods. Once the system was tightened into place, the wall was immediately stabilized and unable to shift any further. The system can also be tightened over time to potentially shift the wall back to its original position.

We also wanted to prevent the other cracked basement walls from bowing in the future, so we installed the PowerBrace system. These braces are installed at the base of the wall and to joists above the wall and then secured into place with steel brackets. After the system was tightened, the walls were stabilized and unable to move any further.

WaterGuard Saves a Sale in Clare, MI

Doug was in the process of selling his home and had come to an agreement with a potential buyer. The terms included Doug solving the waterproofing issue in his basement. With water puddling in several different spots, it seemed like a fair agreement. Luckily, the leaking water didn’t reach the basement's partially finished area. At Ayers, we understand how the delay of solving a housing issue can affect a sale. So when we’re called out to help prepare a house for the final sale, we focus on giving the house exactly what it needs to be reliable.

To correct the problems of this house, a simple perimeter drainage system would do the trick. The WaterGuard system sits in the floor and wall joint of basements and collects any water that runs down the walls. That water is directed to either a sump pump or another drain for discharge. Because the system is below ground, it doesn’t hurt the look of the basement. At the same time, below ground pipes can be harder to check for obstructions and clogging. It’s for this reason, that the crew also included 4 inspection ports where Doug or the prospective buyer can investigate the system and make sure that everything is functioning properly.

If you’re in a crunch to fix a waterproofing or foundation issue before a sale, give Ayers a call. Our system design specialist will work with you to make sure that your house gets what it needs to meet inspection codes, without pushing you to break the bank on a system that you won’t be able to enjoy.
