Our customer just had something that is never fun...flooding. Failure of his sump pump allowed water to come in through the walls, ruining the recently furnished basement. Traditional sump pumps with only single or even double pumps have lots of issues when failure occurs. Ayers recommended our customer to the TripleSafe. The TripleSafe uses one energy efficient pump for most of the easy lifting, as well as a heavier duty pump to help out during heavy raining. Even in the event of a power outage, the third battery powered pump will allow for ease of mind as water is kept out of your home and your family stays safe! The TripleSafe is our most recommended sump pump system as it has kept homes dry and safe even in the worst conditions.

The homeowners in Goshen, IN had water coming into their basement where the wall and the floor meet. They did not have an existing sump pump so there was no way for the water to escape causing damage in their basement.
To combat this water our professional team installed the TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe is three sump pumps in one giving you triple protection. The first pump will remove water from your home efficiently and effectively. The second pump has a seperate discharge line and is more powerful. The second pump will be there for you on the rare ocassions that you need it. The third pump is equipped with batteries so it is there for you if the power goes out. The TripleSafe adjusts automatically so you do not have to worry about it.
Next, our team installed the WaterGuard long lasting interior perimeter drainage system. The system sits on the top of the footing in the basement in order to prevent clogging from mud or other debris. The system works by capturing floor and water seepage before it has a chance to damage the area. Once the water is trapped in the drain the WaterGuard system sends it directly to the sump pump. The sump pump then removes the water from the home keeping the basement nice and dry.
Lastly, our team installed the SaniDry XP dehumidifier. The SaniDry XP Basement Air System is a powerful and effective dehumidifier that's designed to perform in extremely damp environments, such as basements.

The water drains from the unit automatically so there's no need to empty it like a conventional dehumidifier.

TripleSafe is a safeguard feature that includes the use of three pumps to ensure this basement will stay dry, even in power outages and severe weather events. In the case of heavy water or primary pump failure, the second and more powerful pump will kick in, if there is a power outage the battery powered UltraSump will take over. We also installed our CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system. CleanSpace is thick plastic lining that completely seals off the crawl space from the elements it faces below. These homeowners are not to worry, no more water or cold air can enter their crawl space with this installment.

Stephen needed to redirect the water entering his basement so he called our team. We installed WaterGuard, a basement drainage system that unlike many other drains, is installed inside your basement in order to avoid it being clogged. This drainage system will catch any leakage from higher walls or floors before it reaches your basement floor. Other perks are that this system is almost invisible after it is set up and has a quicker and easier installation process than outdoor drains.
Kacey called our team because she had bowing walls that needed attention. So our team installed PowerBrace, a foundation repair system created to secure basement walls in place. Often outside pressures can cause your basement walls to crack or tilt, this foundation repair system counteracts these pressures by keeping your basement walls in place. Over time, the system can be tightened to not only secure the walls in place, but to also straighten them.
A customer was struggling with settlement issues in her home so she called our team. We installed CarbonArmor, a wall reinforcing system constructed to repair damaged and bowing foundation walls. Both of these problems are serious and will only get worse over time. Therefore CarbonArmor is used to fix your foundation walls by preventing inward movement and reducing the cracks in your walls. This system can easily be concealed for your basement to have a sleek, finished look.
Jeri's back half of his home was sinking and was afraid the floors would collapse if not supported. We used SmartJacks to stabilize the sagging floors and return them to the original level. SmartJacks are steel support posts that attach to the floors above with steel brackets and are cemented to the floor to provide a sturdy base. They can be adjusted at any point, if the home is in need of it, providing the home with a permanent solution to the sinking floors.
Sandi's New Paris home was built about 200 years ago and had pieces of the foundation falling out. Water would get into her basement, the walls were cracking, and it was crumbling from the outside. She called Ayers for an inspection and we determined that Shotcrete would be the perfect solution for her home.
Shotcrete is a sprayable concrete that comes through a high pressure hose. Our installation crew sprayed the outside foundation of Sandi's home to reinforce the walls and stop water from leaking in. Sandi is forever grateful that her home is now safe and secure for years to come.
Chuck needed a new egress window in his Elkhart, IN home. The wood had rotted and there was water coming into the basement. Chuck called Ayers for an inspection of the window. While our crew was there, they noticed two other areas of the basement where water had been coming in. On top of the new egress window, we would need to install WaterGuard and a TripleSafe sump pump.
Egress windows from Ayers are completely water resistant, and bring safety and beauty in one. Building codes require that basement living spaces must have a large enough window to safely evacuate in case of emergency. Our windows have built-in steps and durable covers that hold up to 500 pounds.
For extra protection, we installed WaterGuard and a TripleSafe sump pump. WaterGuard is a sub-floor waterproofing system that collects water that leaks through the walls and keeps dirt away from the foundation. It is installed along the perimeter of the basement and on top of the footing of the foundation. Concrete is poured on top and regular flooring can be placed on top. Finally, the TripleSafe sump pump system utilizes three pumps to remove excess water from the basement. The second and third pumps are in case of emergencies so the basement can remain dry, even when the power goes out.
Chuck was thrilled with the work and installation performed by the Ayers crew. He loved that they were thorough enough to check for other points of entry for water intrusion. Chuck can live comfortably knowing his egress window is more safe and secure, and water will never come into his basement again.
Jake's biggest area of concern about his home was his crawl space since there were places that were eroding. He knew he needed professional help so he called Ayers. We then sent out a crew to inspect the area and it was determined he would need SmartJacks and CleanSpace.
First with SmartJacks these are steel, supplemental support systems meant for crawl spaces. This system effectively supports sagging beams and floor joists. A steel tube is used for SmartJacks which is manufactured with a triple-layer, in-line galvanized coating. Then with CleanSpace installed, the thick and durable plastic liner will cover the crawl space floor and its vapor barrier quality will protect his crawl space against excess water or moisture development. Regular tarps you can buy from the store won't do the trick since they fail to prevent mold or bacteria growth and aren't waterproof. The main goal of CleanSpace is to separate the earth from the home and keep water vapor from seeping in.
Jake was relieved to get these serious issues resolved once and for all with our crawl space solutions!
