After noticing water puddles and signs of mold, this crawlspace could no longer be ignored. To prevent further mold growth, this homeowner opted to have the CleanSpace Vapor Barrier system installed. This will block any future moisture from entering the crawl space and stop the growth of mold.

The customer called us because after purchasing her house last fall, there was a little water in the crawl space. But after the recent deluge of summer rain, her crawl space had EIGHT INCHES of water in it. Any amount of water is inconvenient, but that much? What a nightmare!

To take care of the flooding, we installed a TripleSafe sump pump along with yards of crosstile to make sure all of the water diverted to the pump and drainage system. She's also ready for the winter with IceGuard and LawnScape outlets attached to the discharge line and vent covers on the crawl space vents.

The new sump pump and discharge will take care of any water in the crawl space, and to cover all the bases, we installed a SaniDry dehumidifier to eliminate the ambient moisture.

Job Stories From Dowagiac, MI
Cracked Bowing Walls in Dowagiac, MI

Patrick M. was beginning to see some wall failure happening in his basement. His basement walls are made of cement block and, as we all know,  they inevitably begin to crack. One wall was bowing at the center with some cracks that were both vertical and horizontal. Luckily, there was no water or moisture coming through the cracks in the wall. This was an enormous headache for Patrick and his family because they just recently moved in. Lucky for him, the Ayers team found him a resolution. We installed our CarbonArmor system. CarbonArmor is best used if they is little to no access to the outside of the home and if the walls are bowing only at the center. The straps reinforce the basement walls and resist any further bending.  CarbonArmor proves to be the best option because it is ten times stronger than concrete, has a low profile design allowing it to be installed in tight spaces, and even if your wall is bowing it still adheres tightly to the wall to reinforce it.

WaterGuard Protects Dowagiac, MI Home From Intruding Water

This Dowagiac, MI home had water entering along the northwest corner of the basement. The home had a sump pump, although water was unable to make its way to the system unless a significant accumulation occurred.

We installed the WaterGuard system to collect the intruding water and carry it to the sump pump to be discarded from the home. Specialized drainage pipes were installed underneath the flooring around the interior perimeter of the basement in order to collect the water, rather than allowing it to flow out onto the floor. The flooring was excavated in order to place the pipes, but we made sure to restore it with concrete fill- so its like we were never even there!

I have a modular home on a cement pad. I'm in the process of removing a tarp and insulation located on the underside of the house in order to assess the duct system and maybe upgrade AC. Looking for an estimate on a vapor seal for the crawl space? The cement sweets, plus holes needs to be plugs to keep rodents out. Thanks

I need a complete new foundation put in under my summer cottage. It would have to be dug out (all dirt now), house lifted and concrete block/concrete slab put in. Not sure if you do total foundation renovations. Thanks!
