Kalamazoo, Lansing, Grand Rapids, Traverse City
Virgil Ayers is the owner of Ayers Basement Systems and one of the most trusted authorities in basement waterproofing, crawl space and structural foundation repair in Lansing, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids and nearby areas in Mid and Western Michigan.
In this episode of Ask the Expert, Virgil answers a question from a Cadillac, MI homeowner concerning foundation replacement, which is also a frequently asked question by many homeowners in that area: When the foundation is cracking, should it be replaced or repaired?
Virgil explains the structural problems are often caused by the soil conditions around it. Foundation replacement is a messy, expensive, disruptive and labor intensive job that is often unnecessary because it won't address the cause of the problem. In other words, a brand new foundation built in the same soil is bound to have similar problems in the future.
The vast majority of foundation problems can be effectively solved without replacement. Ayers Basement Systems is Mid and Western Michigan's exclusive provider of a full line of patented technologies designed to effectively repair sinking, cracking, heaving and bowing foundations addressing the problem at the source, and fixing it permanently. From foundation pier systems that can stabilize and support the structure on solid ground -- and in many cases lift it back into its original position -- to wall anchors and braces designed to stabilize and reinforce bowing, weakened basement walls, Ayers Basement Systems can handle all of your foundation issues.
