Haslett, MI Basement Reduces Musty Smells with CleanSpace Vapor Barrier

With the basement walls primarily made of stone, moisture and high humidity became a serious problem when water began to find its way through. The CleanSpace vapor barrier was installed to keep the moisture out of the air and reduce mold growth and musty smells by allowing water to drain while protecting the room from ambient moisture.

If you have a crack in your basement wall, call a basement company. Foundation cracks are rarely just cracks and often indicate a larger problem. In this case, a contractor tried to simply fill a wall crack with epoxy, but the leak causing the crack didn't really care and continued to leak and, therefore, crack.

We installed the FlexiSpan crack repair system, which seals the crack and remains flexible enough to accommodate any shifting in the surrounding soil.

The customer originally called about a window replacement, but when we asked him if there were any water issues resulting from the existing window, he said that the crawl space did seem damp. 

In addition to replacing the window in the Michigan basement, we did an encapsulation with CleanSpace to prevent ambient moisture from entering through the crawl space and insulted the joists in the ceiling.

Job Stories From Haslett, MI
Mystery Flooding in a Haslett Basement

Mr. Peterson was at his wit's end when it came to the flooding of his basement. With no obvious cracks, a solid foundation and a working sump pump, there was not much more a homeowner could do to solve the issue. Needing a trustworthy opinion, Mr. Peterson called Ayers and received an inspection from our foreman Randy.

Randy found no obvious issues like Mr. Peterson so inspected the surrounding area. The location of the home allowed high volumes of water to permeate through the ground surrounding the foundation. To stop this problem Randy and his team installed a WaterGuard system that works with the home's sump pump to divert excess water away from the home.

Not every issue can be seen with the naked eye but Ayers Basements can find the perfect long-lasting solution. 

Correcting Walls in a Haslett Basement

Mr. Swartz was lucky, finding only a horizontal crack in his basement block foundation and no moisture or water damage. He was also lucky enough to have been referred to Ayers. Upon inspection, our foreman Evan made sure no mold or foundational problems were present and prescribed a wall stabilization method that would be the least intrusive and the most effective.

The wall stabilization system used is known as a Geo-Lock Anchor system. The Geo-locks are placed underground, through excavation, on the outside of the problematic basement wall. the anchor is secured into the ground and on the other side of the wall, inside of the basement, is a large plate secured to the cracked wall with drills. The anchor points are tightened, creating a constant source of pressure to the affected area.

The plate is relatively inconspicuous, easy to hide, and provides safety and peace of mind.

Keeping a Basement from Flooding due to Frozen Pipes

Doug and his wife have had some water issues in the past and are getting nervous leading up to this coming winter. Last winter, their discharge line froze which caused a back up in the pipes and their basement flooded. To keep the sump pump working properly and the basement safe, we installed the IceGuard Discharge Line System. The IceGuard fits over the top of the discharge line and gives the water a secondary escape route through slotted openings in the drain pipe. 

Family in Haslett, MI Has Basement Waterproofed

Patricia and TJ contacted us because their basement had puddles of water. You could see where the water was coming in through the floor and walls. They had tried using small heaters to dry up the water but this was only causing the electric bill to go up not fix the standing water. 

We helped them with their problem by installing our WaterGuard system around the perimeter of the basement. The system is proven to work and direct water to the sump pump and out of the basement. Since the intruding water had also ruined some of the walls we installed EverLast wall panels. These really cleaned up the look of the basement and are waterproof so they won't get ruined.

Waterproofing System Installed in Haslett, MI Home

This Haslett, MI home had water entering the basement through its cinder block walls. There was a sump pump present, but water was unable to reach the system to be discarded from the home.

We installed the WaterGuard perimeter drainage system to collect intruding water and discard it into the home’s sump pump. The specialized pipes were installed underneath the flooring at the base of each wall. As water entered the home, it drained down into the pipes and was directed to the sump pump, rather than flowing out onto the floor. We also installed inspection ports to ensure we have access to the system if needed, since it is installed underneath the flooring.

We also installed a FloodRing around the water heater to protect the home from a potential leak in the heater.

Effective Waterproofing System Installed in Wet Haslett, MI Basement

Greg G. had water entering his basement through the cove joint and he was looking for an effective waterproofing solution to protect his home from intruding water.

The WaterGuard system was first installed to gather and discard water entering the home where the wall met the floor. Flooring at the base of each wall was excavated to place specialized drainage pipes that collected intruding water, rather than allowing it to flow out onto the floor. Water that was collected in the pipes was directed to the sump pump and then pumped outside of the home. We also made sure to install inspection ports that give us access to the system if needed since it is located underneath the flooring.

The SuperSump sump pump system was installed next to ensure water from the WaterGuard system was efficiently pumped outside of the home. This system included a powerful Zoeller pump, a sturdy liner and an airtight lid that prevented water in the sump pump from evaporating into the basement, which would further contribute to the unwanted moisture issue.

An additional discharge line was also installed to give exiting water a direct pathway outside of the home. During the wintertime, drainage pipes can freeze, which prevents water in the sump pump from exiting the home. If water is unable to exit, it will re-enter the home and potentially cause the basement to flood. The IceGuard system was installed on the line to help water exit the lines through specialized holes, even if the pipes are frozen. A LawnScape outlet was installed on the end of the discharge line to guide water away from the home and prevent it from flowing back toward the basement walls.

Cracked and Bowing Haslett, MI Wall Now Stabilized

Rose H. had stair step cracking in her basement and she wanted to know what her options were to handle the issue. She noted that you can see light entering through the cracks from across the room and she was worried that the crack was only getting bigger over time. Our team of experts visited the home and found that in addition to the cracking, the wall was also bowing inward.

To save the failing wall we installed the Geo-Lock wall anchor system and the PowerBrace system.

The wall anchors were installed by excavating the ground outside of the foundation wall to place steel earth anchors in stable soil that would be able to hold the weight of the wall. The earth anchors were then connected to the inside of the wall with steel wall anchors and secured in place with steel rods. We tightened the system, which immediately stabilized the wall and the landscaping outside was restored.

The PowerBrace system was also installed for extra protection against pressure on the home that could cause further problems for the wall. For this installation we removed a small section of the flooring at each brace location to place a steel column. The column was installed directly on the failing wall and connected to the joists above the wall with steel brackets to hold them in place. Once the system was tightened into place, the wall was stabilized and unable to shift any further. We also reinforced the joists in the home to alleviate some of the pressure that was being put on the wall.

Push Piers Save Settled Foundation in Haslett, MI Home

The slab on one side of this homeowner’s house had shifted down a few inches and he wanted to know what the best option was for fixing the settlement.

For this project we installed push piers to permanently fix the settlement issue. We first excavated sections of soil at the base of the home where the slab was settling. The piers were installed at the footing of the home, attached with steel brackets and driven down into the ground far enough to reach stable soil. Once the system was tightened into place, the home was fully lifted and stabilized and the excavated landscaping was restored.

Leveling Settled Walkway With PolyLevel in Haslett, MI

This homeowner had a small part of his cement slab walkaway to his home that had settled and he wanted a permanent fix that would cause little disruption to his landscaping.

The PolyLevel system was the perfect option for this homeowner’s problem because is addressed the root cause of the settlement and provided a solution that would level the slab in an efficient and effective manner. For this installation we first needed to drill small, penny-sized holes into the sunken slab. Next we injected the holes with a specialized polymer material that expanded to lift the slab back to its original position. The slab originally settled because the soil underneath was not strong enough to hold the cement any longer. Because the polymers are so dense and lightweight, they combat the weak soils to permanently level the slab without having to worry about the problem reoccurring. The polymers are also waterproof and eco-friendly, so that’s a bonus!

Sagging Addition in Haslett, MI Gets Permanent Support

Ralph's addition was about 14 years old and was supported by wood posts, however, the structure had seen some water damage and the wood supports were no longer doing their job all that well. Upon inspection, we determined that the structure would be best supported using helical piers. Our crew dug down to the footing and drilled a series of helical piers deep into the ground along the addition until they reached competent soil. The piers were able to lift the addition towards its original position as many times these piers are able to to. The additon will now be permanently supported and settlement concerns will be a distant memory.
