Downspout Extension Leads Water Away from Okemos, MI Home Downspout Extension Leads Water Away from Okemos, MI Home

This Okemos, MI homeowner was dealing with water build up near his window well. Whenever it rained, the yard would get very damp and threaten to leak into the basement, but the water wasn’t coming from where you’d think. Sure, it was rain water, but it was flowing from his gutter downspouts. The spouts had been installed at an angle on the side of the house that led straight into the soil. It was only a matter of time until that water started to look for another place to go, like the home’s foundation.

The homeowner wanted an extension that would lead the water to his front yard. Ever accommodating, the Ayers crew stepped in and drew out a plan for a downspout extension and front yard LawnScape outlet. The discharge line was placed below ground and then connected to the two downspouts on the home. Think of the after shot as more of a “pre-final touches picture.” The crew later replaced the excavated soil and thoroughly hid the discharge line.

This problem could have been a lot more severe. Overflowing gutter water can easily leak into basements and cause serious foundation problems. If you’re worried about keeping gutter water away from your foundation, then give us a call and find out if a gutter downspout extension is right for your home.

Concrete Leveling Services: PolyLevel®® and Mud Jacking

Sinking driveways, steps, walkways, garage floors and more do more than just lower your home's appearance and property value -- sunken concrete surfaces can also create a falling hazard for your family and house guests. The concrete leveling and lifting solutions from Ayers Basement Systems are simple, clean and effective!

We stand by our concrete leveling and lifting solutions, like PolyLevel®®: a simple, easy-to-install, fast-acting and incredibly durable polymer solution that doesn't wash or fade away.

How PolyLevel®® works:

  • One of our crew drills small holes into the concrete slab.
  • A polymer solution is injected into the empty space beneath.
  • The solution expands, filling the space & stabilizing the slab.

Have large concrete structures that are sinking? No problem. We also offer quality mud jacking and slab jacking services. We begin by pumping a mortar-based mixture of water, soil, sand and Portland cement is under the slab. As the mixture is pumped underneath, it fills the empty space, stabilizing the slab. As the mixture hardens into a solid it becomes more secure than soil and lighter than concrete.

A mud jacking can be incredibly durable when installed correctly. Many of our Michigan competitors just don't know how a mud jacking is done or what corresponding materials are needed, so when the job isn't done right, it won't last. Trust the experts at Ayers Basement Systems to help! Our structural experts know what your mud jacking calls for and how to make it last!

Job Stories From Okemos, MI
Cautionary Inspection

Mike recently purchased a home and wanted to have the basement inspected, knowing there were already issues with the sump pump. He contacted Ayers and allowed our resident foreman Bruce inspect the area. Bruce found that the home's drainage system was in need of improvements that Mike agreed upon.


Bruce replaced the sump pump with an Ayers trusted model, a new drainage system to help the pump, and a modification to help the water flow during the winter. Finally, he added an egress window to allow more light into the home. sacrificing heat

Prepping a Home for Winter

Shyam was having an inspection performed on their home for nonrelated reasons when cracks in the home were discovered. Needing the problem solved in a timely manner, they contacted Ayers for help.


Our resident foreman Blade was able to inspect the area himself and did not find any obvious sources of the damage. Blade deducted that the home must have been damaged during the winter months. To fix this issue Blade installed an IceGuard modification to the home's drainage system.


IceGuard is a modification that attaches to the pipes of the home's sump pump. Without the mod ice can build up when the pump pushes water through the system, risking buildups and ruptures. IceGuard is a simple attachment that requires no energy to function year-round.

Helical Piles in Okemos

Employees of a fellow Michigan-based construction company were in need of stabilization work that needed to be done on one of their commercial business locations. Knowing how important it is to maintain appearances and how crucial picking contractors can be, the company chose Ayers as the best option to handle their basement-specific needs.

After a quick inspection, the shifting and settling of the dirt directly beneath the home was a clear sign to our resident foreman Brian that Helical Piles are the best remedy. Driven by hydraulic tools 25ft into the ground, these screw-shaped steel beams are placed all along the parameter of the home. the home then rests on concrete-block tops on the piles allowing the weight to be distributed evenly. In order to gain access to the strategic locations excavation was required.

Once the initial installation was completed, our team made easy work out of the landscaping, giving the owners the peace of mind to continue their business.

CleanSpace Helps Insulate Home In Okemos, MI

As the weather starts to get more cold and rainy heading into winter, it becomes more and more important to have the correct insulation for your home.  Crawl space insulation is often overlooked by a lot of homeowners as it is not something that they look at very often.  Our customers, Robert and Catherine chose to upgrade their crawl space using CleanSpace, SilverGlo and FrothPak insulation.  CleanSpace is a vapor barrier that goes along the floor of the area, helping seal the house from humidity.  SilverGlo acts as insulation on the walls to keep your house warm and reduce humidity.  FrothPak fills in the gaps between panels and rim joists sealing your house completely.  All of these additions will work together to reduce your energy bill as well as make your home healthier to live in!

Flexispan Help Stop Wall Leaking In Okemos, MI

Deb called us with some bad news...her partially finished basement developed a water leak.  This leak was coming from one of the basement walls.  Leakage in walls is very common, cement and concrete tends to easily crack due to factors such as humidity and freezing.  Luckily, with the help of a product called Flexispan, we are able to eliminate leakage, as well as prevent future leakage.  Flexispan is able to not only provide a fix to the current leaking, but also prevents future leaking by creating a water well at the bottom of the wall that is able to drain water.

Fixing Unsightly Concrete In Okemos, MI

Our customer, Jenna, called us with a couple concrete slabs sinking and cracking in front of her house.  Fixing concrete slabs is a very simple and minimally invasive process.  We use a combination of products called PolyLevel and NexusPro Joint Sealer.  Starting the project with PolyLevel, we make a tiny hole in the concrete slab and squeeze a liquid into the soil that's under the slab causing the slab to sink.  This liquid hardens after time and raises the slab back to where it's supposed to be.  Next, with NexusPro Joint Sealer we will be closing all of the cracks and spaces between the slabs to combat water, ice, and dirt from entering the concrete joints.  Now, we have fixed the slab movement and made the concrete even better to look at, all while using a quick and clean process!

Sump Pump Upgrades Okemos, MI Basement

We recieved a call from a customer in Okemos about their basement that was having some water issues. Well, of course they were having issues because they did not have sump pump. Without a sump pump, the water has no way to leave. So we installed our best sump pump that we have, the TripleSafe sump pump.

TripleSafe is a sump pump with three different pumps in one liner. The first being the 1/3 hp zoeller pump which does most of the pumping and is placed at the bottom of the liner. The second is the 1/2 hp zoeller that is placed slightly higher than the first. This pump is more powerful but will only be turned on when needed. The final pump is the battery-operated UltraSump DC which is used in case of a power outage, this pump can pump up to 24,000 gallons of water.  Now this homeowner will be able to enjoy their basement, water-free.

SuperSump and WaterGuard Mend Wet Basement

Janeen G. of Okemos, MI had standing water in her basement before she gave us a call. Standing water can lead to humidity and moisture in the home, so Janeen wanted this taken care of as soon as possible.

Our solution? The SuperSump premier sump pump system and the WaterGuard French drain system. The SuperSump is a sump pump specifically designed to keep your basement dry for long periods of time. Capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour, it is suitable for heavy water intrusion.

The WaterGuard French drain system rests below the basement floor but above the foundation footing, collecting water that seeps into the basement from the walls. Once this water is collected, it is filtered into the sump pump -- the SuperSump -- to be pumped up and out of the home. 


PolyLevel Lifts Sinking Concrete Slabs in Okemos, MI

Paul S. of Okemos, MI had a sinking driveway, garage and walkway. This created a serious tripping hazard as well as an unattractive sight. After dealing with this for some time, he gave us a call. 

Our solution for Paul was to use our patented PolyLevel injection foam. When we use PolyLevel, we drill very small holes the size of a penny in the slabs that need to be lifted and inject the PolyLevel foam. Afterward, we fill the holes back in, making them practically invisible. The process in itself is normally fairly quick, and following the injection, the slab can be driven on in 15 minutes.

WaterGuard Saves Wet Basement in Okemos, MI

Deven U. from Okemos, MI had water coming in from a hole in his foundation floor. On top of that, he stated that there was water coming from a hole in a tile. There was also water coming from the walls underneath one of the shelves. The basement is finished, so he didn't want to tear apart everything to find exactly where the leak was. To sum up, Deven needed our help to live comfortably in his home.

Our fix? The WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor but above the foundation footing, collecting water that seeps into the basement from the walls. Once that water is caught, WaterGuard redirects it to the home's sump pump to be pumped outside. 

With this installment, Deven need not worry about water in his basement!

WaterGuard and TripleSafe in Okemos, MI Home

Robin T. lives in a quad level home. The lowest level has a low clearance and is not finished. She had sump pump, but water seemed to be coming up through the floor. Because of all these reasons, Robin gave us a call. 

For this project, we installed two of our favorite products: WaterGuard and TripleSafe. We first installed the TripleSafe sump pump system. TripleSafe 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 is going to keep Robin's basement dry. 

Next, we installed the WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor but above the foundation footing, capturing all the water that tries to enter the basement from the outside-in. Once the water lands in the system, the water is then redirected to the sump pump -- in this case, the TripleSafe.

In the end, these two systems working together are a perfect team for defending against water leakage. 

Okemos Bi-Level Home Has Water Problem Fixed

Renee K. has a split-level home that was built in the 1950s. The lower level of the home had water leaking in even though she had a sump pump that was running. On the day that she called us she had to clean up about 20 gallons of water from the lower level. 

Our solution? The WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard rests below the floor and above the foundation footing, collecting all the water that enters into the home's basement through the foundation walls. After the water is collected by WaterGuard, it is redirected to the sump pump and pumped outside. 

With this installment, Renee no longer needs to worry about water in her basement!

Saying Goodbye to Leaky Floors and Windows in Okemos, MI

Steve had noticed water seeping in through the floor of his basement. Once it seeped in, the water would typically flow to the perimeter of the room around the edges. To go along with the leaking floor, the windows had also started leaking and causing problems. Hoping for a complete basement waterproofing, Steve turned to Ayers for help.

The first step to waterproofing the basement was the installation of a perimeter drainage system, WaterGuard. The WaterGuard system was placed in the joint where the floor and wall meet to collect the water as it rushes to the edges of Steve's basement. To install WaterGuard, the crew excavated the foundation floor and made room for the system. Since part of the concrete was already excavated, the crew also took the time to install our most reliable sump pump - the TripleSafe system. The system features two different backup pumps that will keep out all running water. With the floor leaks handled, they moved on to replacing the leaking windows. They added in new glass block windows and used our EverLast waterproof frames to fully protect them. The frames and the glass block will work together to ensure that water never leaks through the windows again. Steve's basement is now fully protected from the floor to the ceiling.
