Water in the basement or crawl space means eventual mold growth and rot. If left ignored, over the years the damage to your home can become extreme. To prevent that from every happening we install a waterproofing system in the basement and an encapsulation system in the crawl space. We protect your Manistee home.
We can fix:
Ayers Basement Systems is a member of Basement Systems, the international network of basement & crawlspace waterproofers. As part of the network, our waterproofing specialists receive advanced training in waterproofing techniques. They also receive access to exclusive, patented waterproofing products. All these products together form a complete basement waterproofing solution. We install an interior drainage channel along the inner perimeter of your basement. Any water entering through the basement walls is collected into the channel and runs to a sump pump. The pump evacuates the water out and safely away from your home. The systems is completed with a energy-efficient basement dehumidifier. By removing the water and controlling the humidity in the basement mold and rot are prevented.
If you have a crawl space rather than a basement, we can protect the area with a similar system. An insulating mat is laid on the crawl space floor and then a thick, vinyl vapor-barrier is placed on top running up the crawl space walls. The vapor-barrier prevents water from seeping into the crawl space. The crawl space vents are close and a sealable entrance is installed. A crawl space dehumidifier and sump pump are added to complete the system. Any entering water is immediately removed and the space is insulated and sealed. No mold, no rot and no cold floors over crawl spaces.
Foundation issues are much more serious than basement waterproofing problems as they can permanently damage your home. Foundation problems need to be corrected quickly and professionally. Ayers Basement Systems permanently repairs foundations for business and homeowners throughout Manistee.
We can fix:
We use a number of different foundation piering solutions to correct sinking or settling foundations. These include helical piers, push piers, slab piers and helical deck piers. These piering systems drill down to a stable soil base capable of lifting and supporting your home in its original position. Whatever your foundation issues, we have the right solution.
Updated Mudjacking Techniques
If your home has sunken concrete slabs in your driveway, patio, sidewalk, etc. we use an updated variation of mudjacking to correct the problem. Mudjacking or slab jacking traditionally involves pumping a mudslurry beneath concrete slabs through holes drilled through the slab. Rather than using a heavy mudslurry we use PolyLEVEL, an expansive polyurethane foam. The foam expands to fill all the gaps beneath the slab, lifting it back to its level position. The foam is also much lighter than mudslurry putting less stress on the underlying soil. PolyLEVEL also cures within hours rather than the days that mudslurry takes. Ayers Basement Systems is Manistee's trusted concrete lifting and leveling contractor.
