The flagstone foundation on this home was crumbling, leaving the home above it on unsteady footing. The homeowner wanted to repair it for both their current safety and the possibility of selling the home in the future.

We installed 3ft and 7ft SmartJacks throughout the basement, strengthening the beams and stabilizing the home above.

A falling crawl space is never a good thing. That's why this Elk Rapids customer gave us a call. After a free and professional inspection, we determined that the use of our patented SmartJack crawl space stabilizer was necessary to support this crawl space. SmartJack provides supplemental support to crawl spaces and can also often lift failing floor joists or beams, taking them back to their original position. No need to worry about this crawl space any longer!

One of our customers needed help with making sure that their crawlspace was safe and up to code. We gave this customer our best. After we inspected the house we decided to install our super effective vapor barrier for crawl spaces called CleanSpace. CleanSpace is a 20 mil thick plastic liner that fits to the crawl space to completely seal the home from the earth. Polyester cord reinforcement allows for a lot of durability, to make it last longer than the home will. This liner also contains an antimicrobial additive to prevent mold. CleanSpace is the best at keeping any crawlspace safe and clean. This customer will never have to worry about a wet crawl space ever again.

Job Stories From Elk Rapids, MI
Settled Foundation in Elk Rapids, MI Stabilized With Helical Piers

Cathy F. contacted us because the sliding glass door in her home cracked due to foundation settlement. Some of the doors were also sticking, which is a common sign of foundation failure.

We installed helical piers to lift and stabilize the settled foundation. The soil outside of the home was excavated in order to attach the helical pier system to the base of the home. The system was secured into place with steel brackets and then the piers were drilled down into the ground until stable soil was reached. The piers anchored into the ground and the weight of the foundation was then transferred through the pier to completely stabilize the settled foundation.

Upgrading Windows in Elk Rapids, MI

Carol and Bill called us out to their home because they were having issues with their basement windows. They had moved into the home only a few months before and began to notice a pattern during summer thunderstorms. Moisture from rainfall would seep between cracks in the concrete wells and leak into the basement. In total, the couple wanted three new replacement windows and accompanying wells.

The team went to Elk Rapids and immediately got to work. Energy efficient egress windows and SunHouse wells were installed as replacements for the three rectangular windows. Our plastic window wells and covers are designed to keep moisture out. The plastic material won’t erode like the couple’s concrete egress, so cracks and seepage should stay a thing of the past. As an added bonus, the larger windows will allow more light to pass into the basement. So not only are the replacements more reliable, they also brighten up the room.

Congratulations to Bill and Carol on the new home! We hope that you’re back to enjoying it, instead of looking for improvements.

Redirecting Discharge Lines in Elk Rapids, MI

The call we received from Mike and Janet was definitely unique. They had already taken the necessary steps to waterproof their crawlspace but now they were facing a different kind of problem. After the crawl space began to flood, Mike discovered that the pump was draining directly into their sewer line.

The Ayers team knew the solution was to add in a new discharge line that would carry the water out of the home and to a LawnScape outlet. All LawnScape outlets are placed at a safe distance from the home, so the discharged water won’t back flow to the foundation. This Elk Rapids home had the perfect location for this. The discharge line was extended enough for the water to exit through an outlet and then flow into the lake at the edge of the yard. The team also installed an IceGuard to keep the home protected even if the line freezes over and the water doesn’t make it all the way to the lake.

Mike and Janet’s plumbing problem was solved after a one-day installation and now they are free to enjoy their beautiful lake home.
