Our Waterproofing System

Whatever the reason for the water in your basement; whether it's leaking wall cracks, leaking basement windows, a high water table or even a burst pipe, we provide solutions that are guaranteed to keep your foundation dry. A drainage channel is installed along the perimeter of your basement floor. This hidden drainage channel collects water that's entered your basement and carries it to a high-efficiency sump pump that pumps the water out of your home and away from the foundation. We can also install a SaniDry dehumidifier to control the relative humidity and help prevent mold growth and wood rot.

Crawl Space Encapsulation & Waterproofing in East Lansing

Ayers Basement Systems will provide a permanent solution to rid your crawl space of water leaks, moisture, and mold. We offer a wide range of crawl space waterproofing and repair solutions for homes in East Lansing, including crawl space vapor barriers and encapsulation, drainage systems, sump pumps, dehumidifiers, and pier and beam supports. Our CleanSpace crawl space vapor barrier includes a 25-year warranty against rips and tears. With a CleanSpace encapsulated crawl space, you'll no longer have to worry about water, moisture, or mold and you'll gain safe storage space that will add value to your home!

Foundation Repair in East Lansing

While some foundation cracking and foundation settlement is normal, others require foundation repair. The best way to determine whether you need foundation repair is to have a trained, experienced professional evaluate your home.

We repair:

  • Foundation cracks
  • Bowing basement walls
  • Sunken basement floors
  • Settling foundations
  • Uneven concrete slabs

If you do need your foundation repaired, Ayers Basement Systems uses products designed and tested by structural engineers, including wall anchors, wall braces, foundation and slab piers, and pier and beam jacks. We also level sunken concrete slabs, lifting them back to their original position. We design custom foundation repair solutions specific to your home's needs.

If you need foundation repair for your home in East Lansing, give us a call to schedule a foundation inspection and free cost estimate.

Concrete Leveling in East Lansing

Sunken concrete slabs are typically repaired using mudjacking or slab jacking. Ayers Basement Systems uses a better alternative method called PolyLevel®. PolyLevel® involves drilling holes in the slab and injecting an expanding foam, which lifts the slab back to its original position. We use PolyLEVEL to fix sunken sidewalks, driveways, stairs, pool decks, patios and more. PolyLevel® offers several advantages over traditional mudjacking:

  • Small, penny-sized drill holes
  • Lightweight material - no additional stress on a weak soil base
  • Won't wash away
  • Ready for weight in just 15 minutes

If you need basement waterproofing, crawl space repair, foundation repair, or concrete leveling, contact the professionals at Ayers Basement Systems today to schedule your on-site evaluation and estimate in East Lansing or a surrounding area in Michigan.

CleanSpace Encapsulation and New Drainage System Save East Lansing Crawl Space

A low point where the sun porch met the foundation of this home was causing water to pool and leak into the crawl space. Leaks can cause problems ranging from mold to an unstable foundation, so it was important to reroute the water and waterproof the crawl space. 

40 feet of drain tile and a new chimney drain took care of the existing leak. Then we installed the CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system with drainage matting and SilverGlo insulation to keep the crawl space dry and even create some usable storage space.

East Lansing, MI Basement Becomes Usable Space

Our customer called with water in the basement that was wrecking the floors and the walls. They wanted to take care of the water problem, of course, but at the end of the day they also wanted the basement not to be an eyesore.

After installing WaterGuard, a new TripleSafe Sump Pump, WellDuct window well drainage, and LawnScape outlets with IceGuard, we went on to install our Basement to Beautiful panels, which provided a finished look without needing to complete a full basement remodel.

East Lansing Basement Saved by Super Sump Pump

Sometimes it's easy to think you've solved a problem. This customer called when he pulled back his finished basement's carpet to find mold, but originally canceled his appointment with us because he thought clogged gutters were the culprit behind the flooding. But a few weeks later, he had clean gutters and another round of flooding, so he called on us to get to the bottom of the problem.

We installed WaterGuard and a SuperSump, as well as a new LawnScape outlet with IceGuard, and don't anticipate any future problems, gutter or otherwise.
