SmartJacks Rise to the Occasion in Lansing, MI
This customer gave us a call after noticing long cracks across the walls and ceiling in their sun room. The room was held up by wood pillars installed into the deck area outside. The weight of the room became too much for the pillars to hold and the room began to shift. This was evident to both the homeowner and our crew because of the uneven floor and cracked walls. It was a different problem, but not out of our wheelhouse.
Lifting failing foundations and floor joists is nothing new to us over at Ayers. In fact, it’s pretty common. To treat this problem and ensure that it won’t return, we use SmartJacks. The great benefit of using SmartJacks for this job, instead of the already in place wood pillars, is that they were designed for heavy duty use. The support system is mostly used to repair crawl spaces and raise the above floors back to their original position, so there was no doubt that the SmartJacks could handle the weight. The team used 6 steel SmartJacks and installed them deep into the soil with a concrete fill. This way the homeowner can rest assured that the support system won’t fail, even if the ground does. If you’re looking for an expert solution to your sagging floor and a team that will have fun while installing it, then give us a call and ask if the SmartJack support system could help you.
Basement Wall Leaks Fixed with WaterGuard and CleanSpace in Lansing, MI
The basement walls of this home in Lansing, MI had a few cracks in them. Not only were these cracks an eyesore, but they were also letting water in through them. To prevent this water from entering the basement and wreaking havoc, the homeowners decided to waterproof the space with WaterGuard and CleanSpace.
To collect water from the leaks in the walls, WaterGuard, a subfloor drainage system was installed. The specially designed piping is laid on top of the footing around the perimeter of the room. It collects the water and then reroutes it to a sump pump, which discharges the water away from the home. Since it doesn’t sit along the footing, it won’t get clogged with mud.
CleanSpace was the final touch in making over the cracked walls in the basement. Not only does it cover up unsightly cracks, but CleanSpace also provides a moisture barrier from the wall leaks allowing them to drain into the WaterGuard system. Additionally, CleanSpace is durable and is manufactured with an antimicrobial additive.
WaterGuard and CleanSpace work together to keep this basement dry and aesthetically pleasing!
WaterGuard Built Into Partial System In Lansing, MI
Sharon had a partial basement waterproofing system installed by another company several years ago. Now she was looking to have a system installed throughout so that the basement can stay completely dry. Our team installed a WaterGuard perimeter drainage system along the walls, tying into the existing system to create one continuous protective unit. WaterGuard is a french drain system that sits on the home's footing and gathers moisture along the base of the wall and directs it inconspicuously to the sump pump system.
