No matter how hard you try to ignore it, your crawlspace is a part of your home and has a large effect on what kind of air you breathe inside. Moisture and humidity create an environment for mold growth that can threaten the health of your home. The CleanSpace vapor barrier completely stop moisture from getting into your crawlspace.

Bowing walls can be hard to spot early in their transition. A slightly bent wall doesn’t look that different from a normal wall to the untrained eye. That was what happened to this homeowner. After purchasing his home one year ago, he began to notice horizontal cracks running along the walls. These sort of cracks, especially multiple ones, are a sign that there is added pressure on basement walls and they have started to bow as a result.

On the positive side, the bowing hadn’t affected any of the other walls - which is a common problem when foundation settles. Almost just as lucky for the homeowner, PowerBrace exists! PowerBraces are a unique support system used by Ayers Basement Systems, that are perfect for repairing bowing and cracked walls. PowerBrace steel beams are attached to the floor joists in the basement ceiling and buried into the foundation floor.  Repairing this severely bowed wall required 8 different PowerBrace beams. The beams are zinc coated steel and can be tightened, so they will continue to straighten the walls over time without the possibility of rust or mold. Let us know when you get tired of fighting your bowing walls and we’ll tag in the PowerBrace system!

Window Wells Get an Upgrade in Gaylord, MI

The problem with traditional basement window wells is the material they’re made of. Metal wells can be corroded, rusted or cracked by the weather and elements. The effects are only amplified when you consider that these wells are a few feet deep in soil. Once the wells have finally taken enough of a beating, water is able to push its way in.

These Gaylord, MI homeowners were dealing with that exact type of problem when we heard from them. Not only were the cracks allowing water to leak into the wells, the water had started to flood into their basement. Our replacement wells are made of plastic that won’t be eroded by the elements, so the cracks that let water seep in will be a thing of the past.  Nor will they rust from the inside out; The wells come equipped with a plastic cover that won’t allow rain water or debris to build up. Replacing the rusted metal wells should be enough to solve the problem once and for all, but just in case leaks persist in another area of the basement, the team also installed a waterproofing system (including a window crack drain) to keep the house protected.

Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Repair

I you have water or moisture in your crawl space or basement it is likely that you will end up with mold and rot. Ayers Basement Systems can protect your home from these problems with proper basement waterproofing and crawl space encapsulation. We are members of Basement Systems international network of waterproofing contractors. As part of this network we receive advanced training as well as access to proven, patented waterproofing products. Our complete waterproofing system comes with a lifetime, transferable, dry-basement warranty. 

Basement Waterproofing System in Gaylord

We can fix:

  • Wet Basements
  • Damp or Moldy Crawl Spaces
  • Leaking Wall Cracks
  • High Humidity in the Space
  • Uncomfortable Temperatures

Our Basement Waterproofing System

We use a patented interior basement waterproofing system that permanently protects the space from mold and rot. A drainage channel is installed along the perimeter of the basement. The channel sits below the concrete floor and collects any entering water. The water is channeled to a sump pump which pumps it out and away from your home. An energy-efficient basement dehumidifier is also installed to keep the relative humidity low enough to prevent mold growth. The entire system is hidden from view but keeps your basement dry. 

Crawl Space Encapsulation

Not all homes have a basement, but Ayers Basement Systems also works in crawl spaces. We encapsulate the entire crawl space with a insulating matting and thick, vinyl vapor barrier. The crawl space vents are sealed and a new entryway is added. The encapsulation keeps water and moisture out of the space. A specially designed crawl space dehumidifier and sump pump is added. The whole system keeps the the space dry and mold free. It also prevents cold floors over the crawl space. 


Foundation Repair & Concrete Leveling

Foundation problems need to be quick and professionally fixed. Ayers Basement Systems repairs and restores foundation and have successfully helped hundreds of homeowners and businesses throughout Michigan & Indiana, including in Gaylord. We have the right tools for your particular foundation issue. 

Foundation Piers in Gaylord

We can fix:

  • foundation wall cracks
  • Separating floors
  • Soil issues
  • bowing walls
  • Sunken concrete slabs

Professional Foundation Repair

We fix settling foundations using foundation piers that are drilled down to load bearing soil. The different piering systems include: helical piers, push piers, slab piers and helical deck piers. For bowing basement walls we offer wall anchors, wall stabilization systems and sprayed concrete. If you have a sagging floor over your crawl space our installing support jacks solve the problem. Whatever particular foundation issue you are facing we have a solution. 

Updated Mudjacking Techniques

We can lift and level sunken concrete slabs around your home. This means we can fix sunken and cracked sidewalks, driveways, pool decks, garages and more. To fix sunken concrete we use and updated form of mudjacking. Traditionally mudjacking (aka slab jacking) requires a series of holes to be drilled in the concrete slab. A thick, pressurized mudslurry is pumped under the slab through the holes. The pressurized mudslurry lifts the concrete back to its original postion. We do the same thing but use PolyLEVEL, an expansive polyurethane foam, rather than mudslurry. PolyLEVEL is superior because: it is sprayed through much smaller holes, expands to fill the space, is much lighter (less stress on underlying soil) and cures in hours rather than days. If you need concrete lifting and leveling services in Gaylord, we are the trusted expert.

Job Stories From Gaylord, MI
Uneven Sidewalk in Gaylord, MI Restored With PolyLevel System

This customer called us because he wanted to level out the uneven sidewalk leading up to his home.

We used the PolyLevel system to raise and level the settled concrete and prevent it from sinking again in the future. This system used lightweight polymers that were injected into drilled holes in the cement slabs. The polymers were dense enough to expand and lift the slab, but light enough to address the weak soil issue that caused the sidewalk to sink in the first place.

Home in Curran, MI is Ready to Get Rid of Some Mold!

Theresa and Don have been residents to their home for 10 years and since they moved in they have had on and off troubles. They use their crawlspace quite often and the odors are just getting worse. They decided to get everything taken care of with our CleanSpace, SilverGlo, and SaniDry system. Each product helps keep their crawlspace completely dry ridding the area of moisture!

Vicinity of Crestwood Drive in Gaylord
A few months ago, I noticed the carpet next to my egress window was soaked. I cleaned it up but every time it rains, water comes in again. There is no leak visible, but I think the egress window needs to be waterproofed again or the foundation around it. I would like someone to take a look at it, and provide a solution and quote. Thank you.

Vicinity of Wah Wah Soo Dr in Gaylord
We recently purchased our home. There is a large egress dug out for two separate/adjacent rooms in the basement. The retaining wall is wood posts & boards and there is some bowing taking place in the retaining wall. There may also be some bowing where one of the retaining wall supports attaches to the foundation of the house. The home as a wooden foundation.
