A leak with no drainage system leads to standing water, which leads to mold and a host of other problems.

Our customer called because her basement's water problems had led to ruined walls and carpet, as well as mold. We got rid of the carpet and walls, applied a product to eliminate the mold, and installed a TripleSafe sump pump and WaterGuard drain system around the perimeter of the basement.

For this home we worked with the person selling their house, the person buying the house, and the realtor managing the entire deal. It can sometimes be tricky to please everyone in situations like this, but luckily everyone involved was great and just wanted the problem fixed.

Tthe problem in this case was a bowing basement wall. Note in the before picture that the wall greatly diverges from the level. This can lead to leaking wall cracks and, ultimately, a wall collapse. But by installing PowerBraces to stabilize and, hopefully, eventually straighten the wall, everyone involved in the house's sale can feel confident that the basement is safe.

When we got a call from the people at Irving Township Hall that their sidewalk was sinking last fall, we knew we had to work quickly. Election day was coming, and that meant lots of foot traffic that had to have a safe passage around the hall.

Luckily, PolyLEVEL has a very short turnaround and curing time, so we were able to get out there and raise the sinking sidewalk in plenty of time for the rush.

Job Stories From Hastings, MI
Stabalizing a Home in Hastings

Bonnie lives with little help and her condition makes housework taxing. When she notice moisture in her home her son recommended Ayers Basements. After calling, our foreman Bruce met with Bonnie and listened to her concerns. After he inspected the home and gave her a comprehensive plan for treating her home.


Bruce prescribed a set of SmartJack piers and covered the area in CleanSpace. SmartJacks are steel beams placed along the home's supportive rim joist. The bottoms are secured into the foundational floor with poured concrete and fixed at the top with loadbearing joints. The entire system is adjusted till constant force is being applied, creating a permanent solution to the home's settlement problems.


The area was fitted with an antimicrobial CleanSpace lining. The lining acts as a barrier between any potential moisture and the home's supportive structures. This prevents any mold spores from forming and makes it easy to identify any potential new leaks.

Stabilizing Floors in a 1920's Hastings Home

Ms. Corner is a proud new owner of a beautiful home built in the early 20th century. Wanting to make the most of her new purchase, her sloping floors were the first issue she decided to get fixed. By contacting Ayers she was able to receive a full assessment by our foreman Evan. After the assessment, Evan prescribed a foundation wall treatment system that would correct the issue and prevent new ones from arising.

The system used by Evan and his team on Ms. Corner's home is called a SmartJack system. SmartJacks are steel posts placed along the affected basement walls and anchored into the basement floor with concrete blocks. The tops of the SmartJacks are fixed with load-bearing joints that attach to the rim joist. This system creates a new source of support and gentle force that pushes the steeled walls back into place.

Sealing Wall Cracks in Hastings, MI

Joyce S. had water coming through her basement through a crack in poured concrete walls. We used FlexiSpan to fill the cracks in the walls. FlexiSpan seals the crack and provides a built-in secondary repair strategy in case the first one fails.It is made of a flexible material so that as the concrete walls move over time the crack stays sealed.


Removing High Humidity Levels in Hastings, MI Basement

These customers had bought a bank-owned property that was vacant for about a year. They were in the process of remodeling the area and although there was no water present in the basement, there was still a bad, musty smell.

The reason the basement had was damp and had a musty smell was because of the high humidity levels in the space. We decided to install a SaniDry XP dehumidifier to fix the issue. This dehumidification system wringed the basement air dry, filtered the air to remove unwanted particles and then distributed dry air throughout the entire basement with its powerful blower.

Keeping Moisture Out of Hastings, MI Basement

Jennifer B. had a Michigan basement with block walls that were falling apart. The area was also extremely damp and had a musty smell due to moisture being able to enter through the walls.

To prevent moisture from being able to enter the home, we installed the CleanSpace wall system. This wall liner is vapor proof to stop water vapor from entering through the walls and has an antimicrobial additive that prevents mold growth. This was both an economical solution to keep moisture out and it spruced up the look of the basement walls as well.

To further remove humidity from the space we installed a SaniDry CX dehumidifier. This effective dehumidification system works hard to remove moisture from the air and keeps the space dry by distributing dry, filtered air throughout the entire basement with its powerful blower.

Creating a Dry Crawl Space for Hastings, MI Homeowner

Lisa B. called because she was looking for solution for her wet crawl space. The space had a dirt floor base that sloped to a V and was always wet, even though water was constantly being pumped out through the sump pump in the space.

The first thing we installed was a SmartSump sump pump to replace the ineffective sump pump that was previously located in the space. SmartSump is an effective sump pump system that was designed specifically for wet crawl space needs. This system includes a sturdy liner, airtight lid and a pump alarm.

Next, we installed drainage matting directly on top of the dirt floor. The matting has a dimpled surface that helps water underneath a liner easily flow into the sump pump. The CleanSpace liner was installed on top of the drainage matting and on the walls of the space and is both a waterproof and vapor proof plastic liner used to seal the crawl space off from unawnted water and moisture.

In order to combat humidity in the crawl space, we installed the SaniDry dehumidification system. This dehumidifier wrings the crawl space air dry and distributes filtered, dry air throughout the space. 

To ensure collected water is able to easily exit the sump pump, we installed the IceGuard system and a LawnScape outlet. IceGuard is installed on the home’s discharge lines and has specialized holes that discharge water outside of the home even if the lines become frozen in the winter. IceGuard is installed at the end of the discharge lines and is used to direct water out away from the home.

Settled Hastings, MI Garage Floor Stabilized With Helical Piers

This homeowner was trying to sell his home but the settled, cracked corner of his garage was turning off buyers. The former tenants had a hot tub in the corner of the garage that caused the slab to sink and the block walls to crack.

In order to stabilize the settled foundation slab we used helical piers. For this installation we excavated the soil just outside of the garage to place the piers. The piers were installed at the base of the slab and securely fastened with steel brackets. The piers were then screwed down into the soil, deep enough to reach stable soil that would be able to hold the weight of the slab and anything on top of it. After the system was tightened into place, the slab was completely stabilized and the weight was transferred directly to the pier to sufficiently hold the garage floor and prevent it from sinking again.

Bowing Basement Wall in Hastings, MI Stabilized With CarbonArmor

Rob and Carol M. called because they needed a solution for their bowed foundation wall. Horizontal and stair-step cracks were found on the basement wall, which are both sure signs of wall failure that needed to be addressed before the problem worsened.

To stabilize the wall and potentially pull it back to its original position, we installed the CarbonArmor system. The fiber-reinforced polymers that make up the straps in this system are 10 times stronger than steel to ensure this home was properly stabilized. We first coated sections of the wall with a strong apoxy resin at the location of each CarbonArmor strap. We then adhered the strap to the resin on the wall and secured it with steel brackets to permanently hold the wall in place. 

Basement Waterproofed and Walls Upgraded With EverLast in Hastings

This Hastings, MI couple thought they were done finishing their basement— until they noticed water seeping in through the walls. With no sump pump in the basement, any water that leaked in the space had nowhere to go. Our system design specialist emphasized that not only was it necessary to install a drainage system, but a sump pump, too.

The crew installed DryTrak, an interior drainage system, along the perimeter of the room. The narrow opening at the top edge of the drain allows any water seepage from the wall to flow into the drainage channel. The next order of business was connecting the drainage system to the TripleSafe sump pump. The only one of its kind, TripleSafe contains 3 sumps in one liner, allowing water collected by the DryTrak system to be pumped out of the basement fast and effectively. Once the waterproofing was done in the basement, the last order of business was sprucing up the walls. The wood paneling in several areas of the basement was upgraded to EverLast wall panels.

Not only are these aesthetically pleasing, they’re made of washable cement board so they’re more durable than regular drywall. With a new drainage system, sump pump and wall panels, this basement is sure to be as dry as it is beautiful!

Reparing a Basement Wall on a Manufactured Home

You may think that because you don't have a "traditional" stick-built home, we can't help you. But you're wrong. It doesn't matter how the home is structured; if there's a basement or crawl space involved, we're in.

Donna called because her double-wide mobile home sat on a basement that was half-finished, and on the finished side, the ceiling was collapsing and paneling was buckled, while the unfinished side had horizontal cracking

We installed Geo-Lock Wall Anchors to stabilize and straighten the bowed wall that was causing the problems on the finished side, which will solve that problem.

The unfinished side threw up signals that there was a water problem, and upon further investigation, our suspicions were confirmed. We installed a full perimeter of WaterGuard below-floor drain system, with Lawnscape outlets and IceGuard covers, as well as a new TripleSafe sump pump to proactively remove the water from the basement rather than waiting for it to evaporate or drain.
