Before and After Pictures from Leslie
Crumbling Crawl Space Restored in Leslie, MI

Before After
Crumbling Crawl Space Restored in Leslie, MI Crumbling Crawl Space Restored in Leslie, MI

A seemingly crumbling crawl space was making our customers in Leslie, MI uneasy. The stone walls were loose, and the area was wet and dirty. Ayers crew came in and carried out tuck point on the wall to keep any loose stones from moving any further. Then, a SuperSump was installed to keep the crawl space dry. This SuperSump can pump up to 2200 gallons of water out of the basement per hour, and has a backup pump installed for extra protection. Lastly, cleanspace was added to the crawl space to act as a vapor barrier. This white lining, shown in the after picture, works to keep moisture out of the house and is mold and pest resistant, and helped to hold the stones in place.

Our CleanSpace system has been used in all sorts of crawl spaces for a variety of different problems. This time around the owners asked for the encapsulation to be installed in a crawl space that was typically dry beside a little moisture during the spring. Their main reason for asking was to keep out the occasional critters that would show up. As you can see in the before photo, the crawl space was made up of a dirt floor and fieldstone walls. Both of these foundations offered easy access for critters to enter. The CleanSpace system in the after photo is attached tightly to both the walls and floor, eliminating the possibility of any future crawling visitors. The final installation product was the ultra reliable TripleSafe sump pump. With two different backup pumps in the sump, water will never threaten this Leslie, MI home again.

Most times, if there’s moisture in a dirt-floored crawl space, the vapor is coming from the exposed earth. The soil in this dark and cool environment can never be dried completely, so the ground remains damp, as this first photo shows. It’s also apparent that water is entering this crawl space through block walls Since cinderblocks are porous, they suck up moisture from the ground making them wet on the inside.

If this doesn’t highlight the importance of a durable crawl space liner, then maybe think of the air in this crawl space. The moist environment is a breeding ground for mold, contaminating the air that everyone who lives here breathes.

CleanSpace is the most effective solution to combating these problems and many more. Made of numerous layers of inorganic material, this thick crawl space liner is incredibly durable. It’s fixed to the walls of the basement or crawl space to provide a moisture barrier, and completely seal off the home from the earth. It’s manufactured with an antimicrobial additive, so mold can’t grow on the inside of the liner if it gets wet.

The CleanSpace encapsulation system transforms this damp, dark crawl space into a dry and healthy area.

Job Stories From Leslie, MI
Cracked and Leaky Basement Wall Fixed in Leslie, MI

Connie L. has a home in Leslie, MI that suffered from a large tree rooting through her foundation wall. This caused rippling cracks that let in water when it rained. Connie needed a solution -- so, she called us.

We used out patented FlexiSpan polyurethane foundation wall crack sealant. FlexiSpan is exactly what it sounds like: flexible. This crack sealant locks the crack to provide a longterm, waterproof seal. FlexiSpan is even flexible enough to stretch with the natural movement of the basement wall. 

Trees don't stand a chance a breaking open this seal with FlexiSpan.

Dirty Crawl Space Reborn with CleanSpace in Leslie, MI

Mary B. of Leslie, MI Wall had a dirt crawl space underneath her home. A dirt crawl space can cause all sorts of problems for a home, so Mary gave us a call for a professional solution.

Our fix? The CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system. CleanSpace is a 20mm thick plastic lining that seals off the crawl space entirely from the surrounding elements. No cold air, water, dirt, or moisture can pass through this material. And as an added bonus, CleanSpace is developed with anti-microbial components that prevent mold growth. 

Bowing Wall Saved by PowerBrace System in Leslie, MI

George K. of Leslie, MI had a bowed foundation wall and and had been that way for 5 years. He did not have any water issues, but lots of moisture was entering into the home. Mortar was loose and falling out and there were cracks all over. Thus, George gave us a call. 

Our fix? The PowerBrace foundation wall repair system. PowerBrace is a wall repair system that stabilizes tilting, bowing, or buckling basement walls. The system uses steel I-beams that secure to the joists above the wall to offer maximum strength. PowerBrace is adjustable and can often bring back a foundation wall to its original position on top of supporting it. 

George, rest easy with PowerBrace.

Seeping Water Stopped in Leslie, MI

Chris K. of Leslie, MI had a water problem in his basement before he called us. Water was seeping in from between the concrete wall and the floor, usually around 2 inches. 

Our fix? WaterGuard and TripleSafe. We started by installing WaterGuard. WaterGuard is a French drain system that rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting the water that seeps in from the walls. 

After installing that, we next put in our patented TripleSafe sump pump system. TripleSafe provides three levels of protection against water leakage -- normal water supply, heavy volumes of water, or in the case of a power outage, this sump pump will keep your basement dry.

Puddles of Water Addressed in Leslie, MI

Sheila K. from Leslie, MI called us because one of her basement wall was leaking. She reported that the very last row of brick was full of water, and that she had puddles of water on her tile floor. The home was built in 1960 out of block walls, but she had her basement finished. 

To remedy this issue, we first installed our WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting water than seeps in through the walls. The water is then redirected to the home's sump pump. No more water!

Leslie, MI Homeowner Looks to Waterproof Wet Basement

Sheila K. has a 1960 home built with block wall foundation. Her basement is finished and an unfortunate water leak coming from one of her walls had been happening for about a year. The leak was coming in through the foundation wall creating several puddles of water on the tile floor. The home has a sump pump, although water was still an issue.  Sheila was looking for a way to waterproof her basement before the problem worsens. 

To begin this installation, we needed to install the WaterGuard French Drain System. We first excavated parts of the floor a few inches away from the walls. A specialized pipe was then placed in the trench and the remaining space was filled with crushed stone. The system was then covered with poured concrete to restore the floor, leaving about an inch of the system closest to the wall uncovered to allow water to enter the pipes. A WaterGuard inspection port was also installed to give us easy access to the system if needed for any reason.

Next, we needed to update the sump pump the home currently had. To do this we installed the SuperSump liner that will ensure water is properly collected from the WaterGuard system and will prevent the pump from clogging with dirt and other debris. We also installed the UltraSump back up battery to the sump pump that will automatically begin pumping water out of the home even if the power goes out.

This project left Sheila with a fully protected house she never has to worry about.

We have replaced roof and gutters a year ago. Greatly reduced water issue. Field stone was placed on the original structure of the house and needs to be repaired. However, the floor isn't level and what foundation evaluated prior to repairing stone and replacing windows. In your estimate as well as indicating what work is needed, could you also line the work up in phases in the order needed to be done. Thank you
