Sindy called us saying that a corner of her house was falling down. She noticed cracks around the house and counters coming away from the wall. The wooden supports in her crawl space were old and not providing the strength and support that the home above needed. In their place, we were able to install a series of SmartJacks. These jacks are made from a zinc-coated steel making them incredibly strong and resistant to corrosion. They are also adjustable and provide the best opportunity to lift the home back into its original position. Sindy can now worry less about new cracks and start enjoying her home more.

Martha's crawl space had a lot of moisture which was causing mold to grow as well. She called our team and asked us to waterproof her crawl space. Our team installed CleanSpace, which is a plastic sheet material that provides a water vapor barrier for the crawl space. It reduces moisture and humidity in the crawl space and is compatible with other crawl space materials.

Job Stories From Plainwell, MI
Helping Repairs Stay in the Family

Donna noticed cracks in her son's basement walls. Understanding how important a home's health is and wanting the best for her son, she referred him to Ayers. After contacting, our foreman Evan was able to inspect the home and draft a solution plan every party could agree upon.


Evan noticed that the home's cracks were a result of a settling foundation so he prescribed a set of Push Piers to reintroduce stability.


To install the Push Piers soil from around the foundational footing is removed and a special bracket is placed under the footing. Metal beams are hydraulically driven through the bracket and into the ground till it hits bedrock. The weight of the home is then transferred to the bracket, supported by the piers in the ground. The soil is replaced, creating a new foundation for the home to rest upon. 

Leveling Floors of a Foster Home

Anna helps run an adult foster care home and was experiencing unlevel floors. The Old victorian style home was built in a historic style that made treating the structure difficult for our foreman Randy.


Randy decided to use SmartJack piers to correct the unleveled floors. SmartJack piers are steel beams that are anchored into the ground with poured concrete and fixed at the top with load baring joints. The joints are attached to the rim joist and the entire apparatus is adjusted to apply a constant force to the building's structure. This allows SmartJacks to be a permanent solution to the issue.

Fixing a Leaky Crawl Space

Mr. Bowman and his partner were not happy to find a leak at the base of his home. The source was difficult to pinpoint so they made a smart decision by contacting Ayers. Our foreman Randy was able to inspect the crawl space and find the source of the water.


Randy was able to quickly draft a treatment plan for the home, staying within the couple's price range and requiring little intrusive work. The treatment involved equipping the crawl space with a TripleSafe sump pump that has an IceGuard modification. The TripleSafe pump has three measures to ensure the pump never gets over worked. Equipped with a back motor and reserve battery, TipleSafe is the best option and why Ayers consistently uses the brand. To ensure the pump works year-round, the pump was also fixed with an IceGuard; this tool prevents ice build-up that would otherwise block the pump.

Plainwell, MI Driveway is Transformed

A customer in Plainwell had a driveway that was far from perfect. There were large cracks that were unsafe, and not flattering. They called us and we were able to give the treatment that their driveway deserved. We installed our PolyLevel technology which is an advanced polymer injection foam that levels the concrete slab will making it stronger than ever.

PolyLevel worked to raise and level out the concrete slabs while dealing with the weak soils below that were no longer able to hold the weight of the home above. We drilled multiple small holes into the concrete slabs in order to inject them with a polymer material that expanded to lift and level out the concrete. Once injected, the system only needed about 15 minutes to fully cure and the slabs were then stabilized and lifted to their proper level, and stronger than ever before. Now, this homeowner will not have to worry about this ever again.

Water Coming Through Crack in the Wall Stopped by FlexiSpan

Eric Y.from Plainwell, MI had small cracks in his basement wall that were letting in water from the outside. So, he gave us a call for a solution.

We used our FlexiSpan polyurethane foundation crack sealant to remedy this issue. FlexiSpan is flexible so it will keep the cracks sealed even with natural shifting of the wall.

Eric no longer has to worry about a dripping wall with this product from Ayers.

A Basement's Triple Threat (But a Good Kind of Threat)

Brian B. of Plainwell, MI has an old basement with a stone foundation. Because of this stone foundation, water has been able to easily enter the basement and puddle of the floor. Thus, Brian gave us a call for a professional and long-lasting solution. 

We installed our patented TripleSafe sump pump system, our WaterGuard French drain system, and our SaniDry XP standing dehumidifier.

We began this project by installing the TripleSafe. 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.

Next we installed the WaterGuard system. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, gathering the water that leaks into the basement from the walls. Once this water is in the drain it is redirected to the sump pump (the TripleSafe, in this case) to be pumped up and out the home.

Lastly, we finished off the project by installing the SaniDry XP. The SaniDry can collect up to 109 liters of water per day and is small enough to be put in a closet of tight corner.


Sinking Patio No More with PolyLevel

Joyce B. of Plainwell, MI dealt with a sinking sidewalk and patio for years before she gave us a call. This caused a serious tripping hazard and a an unsightly appearance -- both things people do not want for their home. Thus, we came to help.

We used our patented PolyLevel injection foam to raise her sidewalk and patio. PolyLevel is lightweight yet incredibly strong and can be walked on within around 15 minutes after the project is complete. We begin the project by drilling small penny-sized holes into the slabs and use them as access ports to fill the void through. After we inject the PolyLevel, the we refill the holes with cement, making them nearly invisible. 

Moldy Crawl Space Saved by CleanSpace

Plainwell, MI resident Mark Z. has a crawl space under his lake home that was moist and moldy. This not only is unpleasant on the surface, but is also a health concern. This said, Mark called us for a professional fix.

We installed a customer and company favorite: the CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system. CleanSpace is a 20mm thick plastic lining that completely seals off the crawl space from the surrounding elements. Dirt, water, critters, cold air, you name it, doe snot stand a chance at getting through. And as an added bonus, CleanSpace is developed with anti-microbial properties that prevent mold growth from occurring.

PolyLevel Lifts Sunken Slab in Plainwell, MI

Kris G. of Plainwell, MI was dealing with a sunken slab issue before he gave us a call. His driveway had sunk, especially in front of the garage -- it had dropped 1-2 inches down. He had it mud jacked several years ago but it has sunken back to where it was before. 

To remedy this situation, we used on patented PolyLevel injection foam. When using this product, we drill penny-sized holes in the cement slab and inject the PolyLevel under the slab through those. Afterward, the holes are filled, making the intrusion barely noticeable. What is noticeable, though, is the quick raise to the slab. The slab can be driven on 15 minutes after the installation, making this a great, convenient fix. 

SmartJacks Save Sagging Floors in Plainwell, MI Home

Sindy contacted Ayers when a foundation problem started affecting life upstairs. Since the house was starting to fall down in one corner, the doors and counters upstairs were pulling away from the wall, leaving cracks in the wall, too.

Foundation problems that go overlooked for too long can cause serious damage, so that’s why our team quickly go to work. We installed a series of SmartJacks, steel support beams, in the basement. These beams are connected to a girder that runs along the ceiling, and then are tightened into place. This helps stabilize and levels the girders and floor joists, immediately lifting the floors above. SmartJacks are the best solution to support the weight of the home, addressing sagging floor and walls.
