Every time ground water rose, water leaked into this basement. The result was mold and efflorescence on the walls. There was also damage to the outside of the exposed block walls from freezing.

We needed to find a way to get the basement dry, keep it that way, and stop the mold problem from recurring.

We installed a new SuperSump pump system as well as the WaterGuard perimeter drain to remove the water and keep the basement dry. Then the walls were covered with our CleanSpace wall vapor barrier system to prevent naturally occurring wall water vapor from entering the basement.

Now the basement will be protected from both rising groundwater and ambient moisture from the concrete walls, eliminating both mold and flooding.

As often happens with dirt floor crawl spaces, Alan noticed that his crawl space was leaking and causing the foundation to settle.

We installed the CleanSpace encapsulation system to protect the space from water vapor. SilverGlo and TerraBlock insulation products will also help keep the crawl space air from entering the house above, meaning more comfortable temperatures and lower energy bills.

The crawl space under the addition of this house was having a serious pest problem. Mice were a common occurrence and had started chewing through wires. Open crawl spaces commonly attract a wide range of bugs and critters. The moisture and humidity make them perfect for catching and hanging out with other creatures in the crawl space hotel the owners were involuntarily running. To solve this problem, the crew installed an ultimate energy saver combination. With SilverGlo Wall insulation and a CleanSpace Vapor barrier, the humidity and moisture in this crawl space will be a thing of the past. The walls and liner are durable and built to keep things out. And with the moisture, so too go the favorable living conditions that critters look for. With one product installation, this home went from pests to energy efficiency.

Job Stories From Grand Haven, MI
Drying a Basement in Grand Haven

Roxanne found her basement flooded and was not sure what the cause was. She contacted Ayers for a solution and allowed our resident foreman Randy was able to inspect the area and draft a treatment plan.


Roxanne's sump pump needed replacing and the walls needed correcting to prevent any water from entering through cracks. All the while Randy and his team treated the basement with a dehumidifier to prevent mold build up.


CarbonArmor permanently stabilizes foundational walls. Using a fiber-reinforcement polymer, which is as strong as steel yet 10 times more flexible, the strips adhere to the wall and stiffen over time. CarbonArmor works best when the problem is caught early, and sadly does not seal away water. 


TripleSafe is a trusted sump pump at Ayers due to its three levels of security. The first level is a powerful motor that has a high water capacity. The second level of security is a reserve motor that activates if the water surpasses a certain level on the initial motor. The third level of security is a backup battery that only activates if the home losses power. 


Moisture in the air is a major risk to the home. Moisture can invite micro-organisms into the home that consume organic materials like the wood found in most homes' Support works. This process weakens the home's integrity risking the safety of the home. Moisture also invites mold spores that can risk the occupants' health directly as well as indirectly. 

CarbonAmor and PowerBraces Installed in Grand Haven, MI Basement

This Grand Haven, MI home had one wall that bowing inward about a fourth of an inch and another wall that had stair-step cracking, but was not yet bowed.

To stabilize the bowing foundation wall, we installed the PowerBrace system that uses steel beams to hold the wall in place. The braces were installed in the floor at the base of the wall and then attached to the joists above the wall with steel brackets. We also reinforced the joists to help support the weight of the home and alleviate some of the pressure being exerted on the failing wall. We also provided the homeowners with a tightening kit that can be used to tighten the braces over time to help shift the wall back to its original position.

We installed the CarbonArmor system on the cracked wall that was showing signs of wall failure. The CarbonArmor straps are 10 times stronger than steel, which made this a perfect solution to stabilize the failing foundation wall. We coated the wall with a strong epoxy resin, adhered the straps to the resin and secured them into place with steel brackets.

Geo-Lock Wall Anchors Stabilize Shifting Wall in Grand Haven, MI

Lorie J. contacted us because one of her foundation basement walls had a large crack that was only getting bigger with time. She was looking for a solution that would stabilize the wall and prevent it from shifting any further.

Our team of experts decided to install the Geo-Lock wall anchor system that uses sturdy anchors to stabilize shifting foundation walls. We first excavated the soil outside of the failing wall in order to embed a steel earth anchors. The anchors were then attached to wall with a wall anchor and secured into place with steel rods. After the system was tightened, the wall was immediately stabilized in place and would no longer shift or crack any further.

Settled Porch in Grand Haven, MI Lifted With PolyLevel

Carin and Edward S. called because their front porch was sinking. The porch was beginning to pull away from the house and the homeowners were concerned that it would begin to affect the roof located above.

In order to lift the sunken slab and prevent it from settling again, we installed the PolyLevel system. Small holes were first drilled into the porch and were then injected with high-density polymers that expanded to lift the soil back to its original level. These specialized polymers are extremely lightweight, which addresses the weak soils issue below the slab that caused it to sink in the first place.

Preventing Wall Failure in Grand Haven, MI

Betty F. had foundation walls in her basement with stair-step cracks that were beginning to concern her. The walls were not bowing at the time, although stair-step cracks are a common sign of wall failure in block foundation walls, so we wanted to take proper steps to fix the problem before it began to bow. 

The sandy soil located outside of the home caused some concern for our original plan to use wall anchors, which is why we decided to install the PowerBrace and CarbonArmor systems. 

For the PowerBrace installation, we needed to install steel columns up against the failing wall. The columns were installed at the base of the wall and to the joists above the wall with steel brackets. Once we tightened the braces, the wall was held in place and would no longer be able to shift and crack.

To further stabilize the wall, we installed CarbonArmor straps. These straps are made of a fiber reinforced polymer that is much stronger than steel. The straps were adhered to the wall with an epoxy resin and secured with steel brackets to hold them in place. These straps immediately stabilized the wall and prevented it from moving any further.

Settled Front Porch on Grand Haven, MI Home Restored With PolyLevel

Shannon T. had a house that was built in the 1920’s and the unattached porch cracked and sunk about 3 inches. It was important to this homeowner to have this issue fixed to improve the look of her home and prevent injury or further damage to the property. 

The slab sunk originally because the soil underneath it was no longer able to hold the weight of the home. PolyLevel was used to lift the slab by addressing weak soils and using effective lightweight polymers. We drilled small holes in the slab that were then injected with the high-density polymers, which filled the void in the soil below and expanded to raise the porch. The polymer material is a neutral color that blends easily with the concrete and the installation was fast with had minimal disruption. 

Three Crawlspaces Encapsulated In Grand Haven, MI

Word of mouth advertising is the best form of advertising. It doesn't just mean more business, it means that our customers like the work we did enough to tell others about it. A couple in Grand Haven contacted us after we encapulated a crawlspace for a neighbor. The work impressed them and so they wanted us out to take a look at their three separate crawlspaces at their home. We were able to encapsulate each of them with our durable and mold resistant CleanSpace material and insulate them with SilverGlo insulation on the walls and foam insulation in the rim joists and any gaps or cracks. There should now be a noticeable difference when these homeowners walk on their floors in the winter and hopefully they continue to share about our work with more and more neighbors.

I'm the President of Bayou Pointe Condominium Association in Grand Haven. Our condos are about 20 years old. 9 of our 38 condos have front steps that have receded about 2 inches on one side. These steps are about 24 inches deep by either 48 inches of 60 inches wide. They sit on the sidewalk as a single step between the sidewalk and the porch. So, it's actually the sidewalk that has sunk. Please give me a budgetary price to fix these steps. I have a picture but couldn't paste it here.
