Jim P. contacted us because there was a crack in his basement wall and was concerned that during a heavy rainfall there might be water that would come through. The house was built with a block foundation in the 1950's and there is no existing sump pump if water to go leak in.

Our team of experts viewed the situation and realized the wall was actually starting to bow inward. We used our Carbon Fiber straps to fix this problem. Carbon fiber is a very high tensile material that is literally impossible to stretch. The straps are actually glued to the wall and can hold the center of the wall in place so it can't bow anymore. Carbon fiber should not be used if your wall has started to slide in at the top or bottom, but our team will help you figure out the best solution to your problem.

This Ionia howeowner called us becuase they were worried about their basement walls. There was a horizontal crack across the wall and it was starting to bow. We decided to install GeoLock Anchors to stabilize the wall. The GeoLock system is made of steel. Steel rods are extending from the wall into hard stable soil to brace the foundation. Wall anchors are installed with minimal disruption to your lawn, won't take up usable space in your basement, and is a long lasting solution to hatling movement in your walls.

Mike and Bethany were having water issues in their crawl space. They decided to go with our team even after receiving several different quotes. We installed CleanSpace, a plastic sheet material used as a vapor barrier to restrict all moisture, outside air, and pests from entering your crawl space. CleanSpace will keep water/moisture from entering their crawlspace. Then we installed the SaniDry XP Basement Dehumidifier to remove any water vapor already in the air. This dehumidifier  never needs to be emptied because the water drains automatically. Also, it is ten times more powerful than typical dehumidifiers.

Job Stories From Ionia, MI
TripleSafe and WaterGuard Installation in Ionia, MI Home

Mary Alice H. from Ionia, MI was having numerous water issues in her basement before reaching out to us. Having water intrusion in a basement can create humidity in the home and cause mold growth: both things you don't want. Good thing we had a solution. 

We installed our patented WaterGuard French drain system and the TripleSafe sump pump system. Beginning with WaterGuard, we laid the French drain beneath the basement floor but above the foundation footing. Once this water is collected it is redirected to the sump pump (the TripleSafe, in this case) to be pumped up and out of the home.

The TripleSafe is a sump pump that provides three levels of protection against water leakage. Whether it be normal water supply, heavy volumes of water, or in the case of a power outage, this sump pump will keep your basement dry. For normal water supply, the Zoeller ⅓ horsepower pump functions. At a heavier level, the Zoeller ½ horsepower pump activates. In the case of a power outage, the UltraSump backup sump pump will pump water on a backup battery.

Shifting Foundation Wall in Ionia, MI Stabilized With Wall Anchors

This homeowner was trying to sell her house, but wanted to get the shifting basement foundation wall fixed before doing so.

We installed the Geo-Lock wall anchor system to stabilize the wall and prevent it from continuing to shift. The installation began with us excavating the soil just outside of the failing wall in order to place specialized steel earth anchors. The anchors were embedded in stable soil that would able to hold the weight of the wall. Those anchors were then connected to the wall with steel wall plates and secured into place with steel rods. We tightened the system into place, which immediately acted as an anchor to hold the wall in place and prevent it from continuing to shift over time.

Ionia, MI Home Received Total Waterproofing Solution

The homeowner in this Ionia, MI home called us because he was looking for a waterproofing solution that would keep is wet basement dry. The water was entering the home through the foundation walls and without a way to collect and discard it, the home would continue to experience water damage.

We first installed the perimeter waterproofing system called WaterGuard. We excavated small sections of the flooring at the base of each wall in order to install the specialized drainage pipes. Water entering the wall drained into the pipes and was then carried directly to the home’s sump pump.

Speaking of sump pumps, we also installed the TripleSafe sump pump system. This system included 3 effective pumps all within one sturdy liner, one of which was battery powered to ensure the home was always safe from intruding water- even if the power went out.

Lastly, we installed the IceGuard system on the drainage lines where the lines met the house. The system had large holes that immediately allowed water to exit the sump pump, which was extremely important if the lines were to freeze in the wintertime.

Eliminating High Humidity Levels in Ionia, MI Basement

These homeowners had leaks in their basement for about three years that they had taken care of but they still had a weird odor due to the extremely damp air in the space.

We installed the effective SaniDry XP dehumidifier to wring the basement air dry, therefore removing the musty smell the homeowner mentioned. The dehumidification system collected the damp air, filtered it and then distributed dry air throughout the entire basement with its powerful blower. Water from the system drained directly into the home’s sump pump, which is why we decided to upgrade the ineffective sump pump found in the home with the TripleSafe system.

The TripleSafe sump pump included a sturdy liner with three effective pumps to ensure water was being efficiently discarded from the home. The first pump does the majority of the work while the second pump takes over if the first pump cannot keep up. The third pump is battery powered to ensure water is always being pumped out of the home even if the power goes out. We also installed the IceGuard system on the home’s discharge line to ensure water is able to exit the lines even in the event they freeze in the wintertime. The specialized holes in the system discharge water out of the pipes to prevent it from re-entering the home and causing flood.

Ionia, MI Home Insulated With SilverGlo Wall Panels

Bev and Ray B. called because they were looking to insulate the skirting underneath their trailer. They had problems with their pipes freezing in the past and our team of experts had the perfect solution to their problem.

We decided to install SilverGlo wall panels to fully insulate the space. These panels are made up of tiny graphite particles that reflect heat back into the space. The panels serve as both a vapor barrier and a radiant heat barrier to fully insulate the space, keep moisture out and can even help save the homeowners money on their energy bills.

Greenville, MI Basement Finds Puddles

Roblee and Sally have lived in their home for 9 years and have had an issue with water leaking in their basement. They decided this year was the year to finally put an end to the problem for once and for all. 

Mr. and Mrs. Holyfield called Ayers Basement Systems and we sent Roger Powell to assess the situation. The most water leakage they have had is enough to create puddles. During heavy rains the water comes in from the front corners and they are both on board with fixing the situation as quick as they can.

The WaterGuard drainage system circles the interior perimeter of a basement along the floor to capture any water seeping in. Roblee and Sally are very happy to have a dry basement every time it rains!
