Petoskey, MI Basement Kept Dry With WaterGuard

Petoskey, MI Basement Kept Dry With WaterGuard

Petoskey, MI Basement Kept Dry With WaterGuard Petoskey, MI Basement Kept Dry With WaterGuard

The owners of this home in Petoskey, MI were looking for a solution to keeping their basement dry and stopping wall leaks. So, we provided them with WaterGuard. This sub-floor drainage system is laid on top of the footing around the the perimeter of the room. A small space is left between the wall and the floor so that any wall leaks can drain directly into WaterGuard where the water is then rerouted to the sump to be discharged from the basement.

After realizing there was water in their crawl space, these Petoskey, MI residents contacted Ayers to put an end to the problem. Our solution? CleanSpace. This durable liner is fixed to the walls and covers the floor to provide a barrier to moisture. The water is able to flow beneath the liner across drainage matting where it makes its way to the SmartSump where the water is pumped out of the crawl space. CleanSpace makes the crawl space dry, usable and much brighter.

Having a dirt crawl space when plumbing leaks are possible in your home is a recipe for disaster— just ask these Levering, MI homeowners. When water leaks, it’s absorbed in the dirt floor, making the crawlspace a wet, humid place and a breeding ground for mold. However, investing in a CleanSpace crawlspace liner and a SmartDrain to identify future leaks can address the previous concern. As shown in the second photo, our team did exactly this. Installing this flexible, durable and antimicrobial liner in the crawl space and an airtight floor drain that alerts the owners when there’s a leak, helps prevent any permanent damage. Additionally, a SaniDry Cx Air System to keep humidity low and CleanSpace Drainage Matting that directs water to the drainage system also works to make this crawl space a dry victory.

Job Stories From Emmet County, MI
Complete Waterproofing in Petoskey, MI

Rebecca M. from Petoskey, MI has a basement that had french drain system that no longer works. Since the snow has started to melt, her basement began to fill with water. Her home was built in 1968, has poured wall, and has a sump pump. The basement is not finished and there was water coming in from the outside.

Our fix? The WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard is a customer and crew favorite, offering a great way to protect your home against water intrusion. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor but above the foundation footing, collecting water that enters in through the basement walls. That water is then redirected to the sump pump in the home and pumped outside. 

Complete Waterproofing in Petoskey, MI

Bill C. of Petoskey, MI had water in his crawl space. This can cause serious issues within the home such as sticking doors and windows and peeling paint. So, Bill gave us a call.

After a complete inspection, we decided the best way to remedy this situation would be to install our SmartSump crawl space sump pump and the CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system. We started with the SmartSump -- SmartSump is a self-draining sump pump that can collect 109 pints of water without its collection tray having to be emptied. SmartSump works perfectly with the CleanSpace system as well.

Next, we installed the CleanSpace. CleanSpace is a 20mm thick plastic lining that completely seals off Bill's crawl space from the surrounding elements. No dirt, dust, cold air or water will enter with this system in place. CleanSpace is also made with an anti-microbial component, preventing the growth of any mold. 

Triple Threat in Petoskey, MI Crawl Space

Mary M. of Petoskey, MI had dampness and standing water in her crawlspace. Her foundation is cinderblock and the home was built in the 1980s. With this being said, you can probably see that she had a problem. Thankfully, she called us.

We remedied this situation by installing three of our patented products: the CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system, the SaniDry crawl space dehumidifier, and the SmartSump crawl space sump pump. 

CleanSpace is a 20mm thick plastic lining that completely seals off Mary's crawl space from the surrounding elements. No air, dirt, or water will get into this crawl space with this installment. SaniDry is a self-draining dehumidifier that adds another barrier of protection against water vapor. SmartSump is a sump pump built for crawl spaces. These products all fit together like a glove. 

Say goodbye to standing water with this trio.

WaterGuard Protects Harbor Springs, MI Home From Water Intrusion

Water seepage was taking over this Harbor Springs, MI residence and the homeowners wanted a proper waterproofing system that would take care of the issue.

The effective drainage system known as WaterGuard was installed underneath the flooring around the interior perimeter of the basement. The flooring was removed at the base of each wall to place the specialized drainage pipes. Water entering the home flows down into the system and is then immediately directed to the sump pump to exit the home. After the system was set into place, the floors were restored with concrete fill and the homeowners no longer had to worry about a wet basement.

Wet Basement with Wood Foundation in Petoskey, MI

Sharon S. of Petoskey, MI had water leakage in her basement for years before she gave us a call. This can cause immense issues for a basement -- issues that we, the professionals, can take care of.

Our solution? The TripleSafe sump pump system and the WaterGuard French drain system. The TripleSafe is a sump pump that provides three levels of protection against water leakage. Whether it be normal water supply, heavy volumes of water, or in the case of a power outage, this sump pump will keep your basement dry. For normal water supply, the Zoeller ⅓ horsepower pump functions. At a heavier level, the Zoeller ½ horsepower pump activates. In the case of a power outage, the UltraSump backup sump pump will pump water on a backup battery.

The WaterGuard systems rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing collecting water that gets into the basement from outside. After this water is collected it is redirected to the sump pump -- the TripleSafe -- to be pumped up and out of the home. 

Sharon, you can rest easy with these systems from Ayers in place.  

Ongoing Water Issues Resolved in Petoskey, MI

Ben D. of Petoskey, MI has had water issues in his basement for years. Every time it rains, water comes into the basement. There was a dehumidifier in the basement and it took care of mildew, but there was still an odor. So, Ben gave us a call.

Our solution? The SuperSump premier sump pump system and the WaterGuard French drain system. The SuperSump is a sump pump specifically designed to keep your basement dry for long periods of time. Capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour, it is suitable for heavy water intrusion.

The WaterGuard drain rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting water that seeps into the basement from the walls. Once that water is collected, it is redirected to the sump pump -- or in this case, the TripleSafe -- to be pumped up and out of the home.

Encapsulation Protects Brutus, MI Crawlspace

A customer called Ayers with a few issues happening in their crawlspace. The walls of the crawlspace were having some problems with water entering in. On top of this issue, they wanted to insulate the crawlspace, which makes it warmer. 

CleanSpace works to encapsualte the entire space of the crawlspace. This prevents moisture, dust, and dirt from entering the crawlspace. The moisture entering in this crawlspace prior to laying the CleanSpace was and can cause mold to enter. After the CleanSpace is installed, this crawlspace will not have any issue with mold ever again. 

We then add SliverGlo, attaching it to the walls of the crawlspace. The SilverGlo is a highly effective graphite-filled insulation with a built-in radiant heat barrier surface. SliverGlo improves insular properties by 24% while offering an economical insulation option for crawlspaces.

IceGuard Helps To Prevent Wet Basements In Cold Winter

Our customers called us with some trouble, during heavy rain the house would start leaking.  Ayers was able to help fix those issues by installing a new sump pump and a waterproofing solution called WaterGuard that helps to move water to the sump pump.  For the discharge of the sump pump, it is important that the water gets outside of your home and we recommend installing IceGuard.  IceGuard attaches to your discharge pipe outside of your home to act as protection against frozen pipes that would otherwise cause a flood in your basement or crawl space.  This cheap addition to your home allows for more protection against cold Michigan winters and will help to keep your space nice and dry.

Waterproofing Basements in Harbor Springs, MI

A customer was having water intrusion issues in his basement so he called our team. We installed WaterGuard, TripleSafe and SaniDry to waterproof his basement. The WaterGuard system will catch any leakage from higher walls and floors. TripleSafe is a sump pump system that is battery powered which prevents basement flooding during power outages. Lastly, the SaniDry XP Basement Dehumidifier never needs to be emptied because the water drains automatically. In addition, it is ten times more powerful than typical dehumidifiers.

Installing IceGuard in Muskegon, MI

A homeowner called our team because she had water entering her home during the cold winter months. So our team installed the 1-844-262-2971">IceGuard Sump Pump Discharge Line System. This system allows water to leave even when the discharge line is frozen. Therefore, this system prevents flooding even in freezing temperatures or when the snow is piled up high. 

Encapsulating a Home in Pellston MI

Eric had a vacation home that he wanted to move to permanently but before he did, he wanted to insulate and encapsulate the crawl space. We had the perfect solution to keep his home warm in the winter and cool in the summer as well as keep the area clean. We started with Drainage Matting which has dimples in it to direct the flow of water to the sump pump to be discharged outside the home. Then we laid down TerraBlock which is covered on both sides with a durable moisture barrier that makes the insulation resistant to puncture and abrasion damage. It also provides a cushioned surface that will be appreciated when moving around in the crawl space. Next we laid down CleanSpace Crawl Space Vapor Barrier to keep the humidity and water vapor out. Besides keeping the area dry, the CleanSpace liner protects against mold and rot as well as keeping away pests. Lastly, we installed the SaniDry Sedona which has a powerful motor that keeps air circulating the crawl space to dry it out. The dehumidifier is small so it wont take up much space and all the water collected will be sent to the sump pump to dispelled outside of the house.
