This basement had a severe case of bowing walls, as you can probably tell by the separation of blocks in the before photo. This occurs because the pressure caused by expanding soil is too much for the foundation to handle, so instead of standing upright, the wall is being forced in and splitting at the middle. While we typically use one of two methods to solve bowing foundation problems, the condition of this basement called for both products: GeoLock Wall Anchors and the PowerBrace System. However, only one system, the PowerBrace beams, are seen in the after photo.

PowerBrace beams work by countering the pressure put on bowing walls. The bracket at the top of the beam was attached to the wooden floor joist above to shift the weight from foundation to beam. Not only does the beam take over supporting the foundation, the bracket can be tightened whenever the homeowner feels it necessary. Instead of being forced in, the wall will cease to move, and thanks to the tightening ability of PowerBrace, may even be forced back to its original position.

These homeowners had a poured concrete retaining wall along the side of a basement entrance. The wall had a large crack in it and was starting to lean. That was no problem for out foundation repair crews. We installed three GeoLock wall anchors along the wall to permanently support the structure. These wall anchors consist of large steel wall plates that connect to GeoLock earth anchors buried in the ground out away from the wall with the help of a long steel rod. This prevents further leaning and provides a unique opportunity to improve the condition of the wall over time as the system is tightened, mainly during dry periods. This retaining wall should continue to stand upright and reliable for many many years to come.

Job Stories From Coopersville, MI
Waterproofing 1970's Home in Coopersville, MI

Kevin has been having water problems for years. Recently he noticed cracks in his concrete basement walls. Water was coming through the cracks and causing mold to grow. Additionally, during heavy rains, water coming through the walls would start to form puddles. It was a nightmare for the family.

We addressed the cracks allowing water to come in through the wall. We used Flexispan to fill the cracks in the concrete. Flexispan is used to seal the cracks and has a built-in secondary repair strategy in case the first one fails. Over time, concrete walls will inevitably shift, Flexispan is made with a flexible material so no amount of wall movement will affect it. Your walls and floors will always stay dry with Flexispan.

 

Failing Coopersville, MI Foundation Saved With Wall Anchors and PowerBraces

Al B. contacted us because the south side of his home had failing foundation. There were many cracks on the basement walls, both inside and outside of the home.

We decided to install the Geo-Lock wall anchor system and the PowerBrace system to completely stabilize the failing walls before the issue began to worsen.

To install the wall anchors, we first needed to excavate outside of the home in order to place steel earth anchors into stable soil. Those anchors were then connected to the failing walls with a steel wall anchors. Once the system was secured into place with steel rods and tightened into place, the system anchored the wall in place and prevented it from shifting or cracking any further.

The PowerBrace system used specialized steel I-Beams that were installed at the base of the wall and to the joists above the wall with steel brackets. Once installed, the braces prevented any further movement. We also provided the homeowner with a kit that can be used to tighten the braces over time to pull the wall back to its proper position.

WaterGuard Eliminates Invading Water in Coopersville, MI Basement

Ted C. called because he noticed a puddle of water in his basement where the wall met the floor. He was looking for a waterproofing solution that would permanently deal with the problem and prevent standing water from accumulating on his floor.

To collect and drain water entering his basement we installed WaterGuard, which is a perimeter drainage system that guides intruding water directly to the sump pump, rather than flowing onto the floor. The flooring at the base of the walls was removed to place the WaterGuard pipes. These pipes were placed on top of the footing to prevent the system from clogging and just outside of the wall to ensure water coming into the home was able to filter into the system. Concrete fill replaced the excavated flooring so its like we were never even there!

Since the system was placed under the flooring, it was important to install an inspection port that gives us access if we need it.

Leaking Coopersville, MI Basement Fixed With WaterGuard and IceGuard

Ryan L. called because he had watering entering his basement. The basement was finished and he wanted to ensure the problem was properly fixed before more damage was done to the drywall and carpeting. 

To collect and discard water that was entering the basement through the walls, we installed the WaterGuard perimeter drainage system. To begin this installation, we removed sections of flooring closest to the walls in order to place custom pipes and the remaining area left around the pipes was filled with crushed stone. Next we poured cement over the trench to refurbish the floors, making sure to leave a section of it uncovered for water to drain into. 

 

This home needed an efficient escape route for the water to exit the home, so we installed an additional discharge line and the IceGuard system. The discharge line was cut to the proper length and was attached to the WaterGuard system to discard intruding water outside of the home. IceGuard was installed on the discharge line to combat frozen pipes that can prevent water from exiting. The system has specialized holes that guide water outside of the discharge lines even if the pipes are frozen, which prevents it from re-entering the home and causing a large leak or flood.

TripleSafe Puts an End to Basement Flooding in Coopersville, MI

This customer’s home sat very close to Grand River, and he often experienced water flooding his basement. He had a sump pump, but it didn’t work all of the time, and when he lost power, it was completely useless. Hoping to finish his basement, Jon needed a sump pump that he could rely on to keep his basement dry.

Luckily, Ayers has a sump pump system that efficiently removes water from the basement, in virtually all conditions. The TripleSafe system has 3 sumps in one liner: pump 1 that handles a majority of the pumping, pump 2 that sits higher in the liner and turns on if the first one fails or can’t keep up, and pump 3 which is batter operated and kicks in if the power goes out.

TripleSafe is specially designed by engineers to effectively and efficiently pump water out of your basement. It’s heavy duty, and it’s placed in the ground and covered with an airtight lid, so you don’t have to stare at a literal black hole in your basement.
