Using CleanSpace, we were able to provide our customer with a barrier separating the ground from the home.  Crawl spaces with dirt or concrete do a poor job of stopping humidity from entering houses.  With CleanSpace, we have made a vapor barrier allowing for the house to be protected from humidity that can cause problems like mold and dust mites that can have serious consequences.

Our customer inherited a house and immediately noticed a musty smell. She suspected the crawl space was the culprit, and she was correct.

We used CleanSpace vapor barrier and drainage matting to encapsulate the crawl space and protect it from the dirt floor and everything (like water) that comes with it. We also installed a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier to control the ambient moisture.

Job Stories From Roscommon County, MI
Houghton Lake, MI Cottage Receives Crawl Space Update

This old Houghton Lake cabin had a crawl space that was in need of proper insulation and a plastic sheathing that would keep moisture out. The crawl space had block walls and a sand base that allowed water and water vapor to easily access the space.

The first step in this project was to install drainage matting on the base of the crawl space. Because the space was going to be encapsulated with a liner, we needed the dimpled surface of the drainage matting to help guide water to the perimeter drain to prevent it from getting trapped underneath the liner. 

The CleanSpace liner was installed on the base and the walls of the crawl space to completely seal it off from outside air and moisture. The liner is waterproof and vapor proof to prevent any type of moisture from entering the crawl space and its inorganic materials and antimicrobial additive prevents mold growth. The liner was securely fastened to the walls so the homeowner will never have to worry about it falling down and the material is extremely durable, making it resistant to ware and tare over time. 

To insulate the walls in the crawl space we used FrothPak spray foam insulation. Unlike traditional fiberglass insulation this one will never absorb moisture in the space and if it did get wet, its inorganic materials prevent mold growth. The spray foam was easily used to completely seal the walls off from the outside environment.

Helical Piers Stabilized Settled Foundation in Houghton Lake, MI

Gary and Carol W. reached out to us because they were looking to deal with the foundation issue in their home. There was a large crack located in the corner of their foundation wall on the outside of the home. The foundation had sunk about an inch in that same corner and these homeowners were looking for a reliable solution that would support their home and prevent it from settling again in the future.

To stabilize the foundation and lift it back to its original level, we installed helical piers. First, we needed to remove the soil outside of the home where the settlement had occurred because the piers are installed at the base of the home and secured into place. The piers were then driven down into the ground until they reached stable soil that would be able to hold the weight of the home. Once the system was completely installed, the foundation slab in the home was lifted the soil was backfilled.

Clean Crawl space with CleanSpace in Prudenville, MI

Mark Z. of Prudenville, MI had a vapor barrier from another company installed in his crawl space 15 years ago and it has failed, causing condensation and mold issues. Because of this, Mark gave us a call. 

Our solution? The CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system and the SaniDry CX crawl space dehumidifier. CleanSpace is a 20mm thick plastic lining that prevents entry of outside elements into the crawl space. No cold air, water, or dirt will surpass this boundary. 

The SaniDry CX is a dehumidifier made for small space of a crawl space but has a powerful motor that absorbs up to 109 pints of water per day without its collection tray having to be emptied. That's right -- this dehumidifer is self-draining. 

Mark, relax. We've got you covered with these products.

Wet, Flooded Crawl Space Rescued by CleanSpace in Saint Helen, MI

Warren C. from Saint Helen, MI had a serious probelm in his crawl space before calling us. He had almost 2 feet of water in his crawl space and his sump pump was not working. This can easily lead to mold growth and break down of structures in the crawl space, on top of incredible humidity in the home above the crawl space. For this reason, Warren reached out for help – and ew had a solution. 

We installed two of our favorite products for this job: the CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system and the SmartSump crawl space sump pump system. CleanSpace is a 20mm thick plastic lining that completely seals out surrounding elements from the crawl space. And as an added bonus, CleanSpace is made with antimicrobial properties that prevent mold growth. 

The SmartSump is a small but mighty sump pump perfect for shallow crawl spaces. It's Zoeller 1/3 horsepower pump can pump 2,500 gallons of water per hour at a 5 foot head, ensuring a completely dry crawl space.

With these installments, Warren can be sure that his crawl space will have protection against flooding in the future. 

Sagging Floors in Roscommon, MI

Jane F. lived in a home that was 30 plus years old. It was built over a dirt floor crawl space and the foundation is made up of wood and concrete blocks. The middle of her home was sagging and Jane was worried about the foundation of her  home.

Our amazing team found a solution to fix her foundation issues without her having to leave the house. We used SmartJack to stabilize her crawl space. SmartJacks are steel support support systems that level the floor in your crawl space. They have the ability to support more than 60,000 lbs. Now, Jane has a solution that will lift the floors in her home and unlike concrete floors, will not sink into the soil again over time.


Controlling Humidity in a Walkout Basement

Our customer called looking for a way to control the humidity in his walkout basement for good. There wasn't standing water but the basement had two bedrooms and they always felt damp and musty. He was concerned about air quality, but also didn't want to refinish the basement before addressing the persistent dampness.

We installed a SaniDry dehumidifier to keep the ambient moisture at a livable level. The SaniDry line provides powerful dehumidifying capabilities and a large capacity so you're always protected without the inconvenience of constantly emptying a reservoir.

The basement can be finished without fear of moisture with a SaniDry on the job.

The CleanSpace Encapsulation System Does Wonders for a Prudenville, MI Cottage

One morning our call center received a call from our friend Elizabeth, who owns a cottage in Prudenville, MI. She told us she had a lot of moisture and condensation in the crawlspace of her summer home. Elizabeth’s son Mark is a past crawlspace client of ours and he referred her to us because he knew he could trust our Ayers Basement Systems team to provide his mother with the same high-quality service he had received.

After assessing Elizabeth’s crawlspace needs, we recommended the installation of our patented CleanSpace crawlspace encapsulation system to address the current moisture/condensation issues being faced below her home. The CleanSpace encapsulation product is a 20mm thick plastic lining that completely seals off the crawl space from the grueling elements it faces below. To supplement the CleanSpace, we also installed the CleanSpace drainage mat to ensure maximum water drainage to Elizabeth’s sump pump. Our new friend also elected for us to install the SaniDry CX, a high-performance dehumidifier and filtration system. In her crawlspace, the SaniDry will help prevent moisture, reduce musty odors, and produce healthy air. Thanks to our team, Elizabeth’s crawlspace worries are now a thing of the past.

SunHouse Window Well Covers Stop Window Well Leaks and Add Light to a Houghton Lake, MI Basement

One day Rita Z. was visiting her parents’ home in Houghton Lake, MI. While she was visiting she could tell something was bothering her dad. She asked him what was on his mind and he began telling her about the leaking window wells in their basement. Ready to help her parents seek guidance from their local basement waterproofing experts, Rita picked up the phone and gave us a call. We carefully listened to Rita explain the problem occurring in her parents basement. A short time later we sent our team out to help our new friends tackle their basement challenges.

Rita’s parents welcomed us into their home, where we diagnosed the current water concerns and recommended the installation of four SunHouse window well covers.

Helical Piers Stop a Constantly Shifting Home in Prudenville, MI

Paula P. from Prudenville, MI was over taken by signs that her homes foundation was moving. While letting her dog out her sliding glass door she began noticing it wouldn’t open and close like it used to. One day while coming home from work she noticed a stair-step crack in one of her brick foundation walls. She became worried about her growing foundation problem and gave us a call.

Our expert System Design Specialists calculated a plan to lift Paula’s home back to its original position and permanently support its weight through customized approach using seven helical piers. These piers are long steel shafts, that are advanced deep into the ground to competent soil. The footing of the home sits on top of these shafts using a heavy-duty steel anchor. We installed these anchors by excavating soil from around the exterior of the home until we reached the footing. We advanced the helical piers from there creating a solid and permanent solution, in finishing the job we replaced the removed soil. With these piers in place, we have allowed Paula’s home to regain its stability.

The Moisture Below a Higgins Lake, MI Home is Eliminated by the CleanSpace

Kathryn J. inherited her father’s home in Higgins Lake, MI. She soon became unhappy with the damp musty smell rising up from the crawl space. One day Kathryn saw an Ayers truck at a home in her neighborhood. She stopped and talked to our team member about getting someone out to inspect her crawl space.

When Kathryn’s appointment date arrived, we sent Senior System Design Specialist Roger Powell to her rescue. Roger went to our new friends’ home and created an individualized solution proposal consisting of our CleanSpace crawlspace encapsulation system and the SaniDry Sedona dehumidification system. Kathryn had several other proposals drawn up by other local companies, but ultimately, she felt Ayers could best meet her needs. We returned to our new friends’ home and put our proposed plan into action. Since the transformation Kathryn has said she can definitely feel the difference, the musty smell is gone, and her energy cost have dropped. Like Kathryn, if you are tired of the musty smell in your crawl space, give us a call to see what the CleanSpace can do for you.

A Concrete Foundation Cracks in Saint Helen, MI

Michael’s cabin is built on top of a concrete slab that over time, due to changing soil conditions, has cracked in the corner. This portion of the concrete has fallen below the rest of the slab by 6-8” He needs a system that will bring the concrete back to where the rest of the slab is. Our team came out and used PolyLevel Injections to bring the slab back to the original height. 

PolyLevel injections are designed to fix sinking and cracking concrete slabs by bringing them back to their original level. This is achieved by using polyurethane foam. The foam expands and has a high density in order to raise the concrete. The process is simple and done by drilling small holes into the concrete and then inserting the foam into the holes. The foam is completely waterproof, minimally invasive, and lasts forever. 

By bringing the corner of Micheals’s home back to the right height, we are preventing any further foundation issues that could occur from an uneven concrete slab. This will save Michael thousands of dollars in the future on other systems that he might need if this continues.

Keeping a Prudenville Home Stable for a Remodel

This Prudenville couple will be remodeling their home with a mother-in-law suite. The home had some settlement that they wanted fixed before starting the remodels. Since the home sits on the crawl space, the corner where the home was settling as well as the crawl space needed to be supported. We first installed Helical Piers for the outside of the home to prevent the corner from moving any further and to lift it back to the original level. To stabilize the floors of the home and the beam sin the crawl space, we used SmartJacks. Both of these solutions have fast, effective installation that can be done year-round to keep the homeowners happy and their home stable.

Happy and Healthy in a Prudenville, MI Home

Tom’s house sits on a crawl space that has cracking and settling. He has noticed some mold and moisture in his space as well as one corner that has sunk down below the rest of the space. Our team came in to fix the settling with Helical piers and SmartJacks and the moisture and mold with CleanSpace. 

SmartJacks support sagging floor joists and beams.  Floors above basements and crawl spaces are vulnerable due to the damp nature of the lowest floor. The SmartJack system is a permanent fix to these issues. It uses steel columns, threaded rods, and a solid base to address any problems your basement may have. Installing this system usually takes less than a day and it provides immediate stabilization. Sometimes after homes are built they can experience foundation settling if the soil under them expands and contracts substantially with weather conditions. This can cause a plethora of foundation problems including cracking and bowing walls, foundation shrinkage or expansion, and water in the basement. Helical Piers stabilize settling foundations by connecting the foundation of a home to load-bearing soil by drilling long piers into the ground under a home. The permanent solution is less invasive than it sounds and lasts a lifetime and more. 

CleanSpace is an uninterrupted vapor barrier designed to keep out any unwanted pests, moisture, and mold. This barrier restricts airflow and therefore makes controlling the temperature of the home much easier. CleanSpace is applied to the floors and walls and wrapped around pillars and piers carefully to ensure that the space looks clean and refreshed. 

Now Tom’s entire crawl space is level, and settling is no longer a problem. He also doesn't have to worry about any further mold growth or moisture that was occurring before. He can trust that our systems will last and keep him happy and healthy in his home. 


Leveling a Back Porch in Houghton Lake MI

Cliff and his wife had some concrete that settled on their back porch and wanted to get it fixed. We used an injectable foam, PolyLevel, to lift and level the porch. PolyLevel cures in about 15 minutes, is waterproof, and stable which make it a long lasting solution to your sinking concrete problems!

Prepping a Houghton Lake MI Home to be Sold

Cliff and his wife are thinking of selling their home in the future. Their chimney was starting to settle and knew that would not be a selling point so they called us for a solution. We had done work for them before and they trusted we could provide a long lasting solution to the problem. 

We installed Helical Piers to stabilize the settling chimney and help lift it back up to the original level. They have quick, year-round installation so no matter that season, your home will be protected! 

Lifting a Front Porch in Roscommon MI

Laurie and Mark have had a problem with their front porch concrete slab since they moved into their home about 2 years ago. The columns on the porch are pulling away from the overhang and they are worried it will create more damage if not fixed. We used PolyLevel to lift and level the concrete slab which then lifts up the columns so there is no concern. The foam is waterproof, stable, lightweight, and cures in about 15 minutes. The cracks on the concrete was sealed with NexusPro which is a silicone sealant. This sealant is made to withstand harsh weather to keep it from drying out or cracking. Like PolyLevel, it dries in a fraction of the time that other sealants would dry.

Lifting a Front Porch Slab in Houghton Lake MI

Sue and Rick have a section of their front porch that has settled about 2 inches and they were looking to have it lifted back up. We used a lightweight foam, called PolyLevel, to lift the porch slab back up and keep the porch level. With the foam being lightweight, the porch can have full weight on it and still be stabilized because the foam won't add more pressure to the already unstable soil below the concrete. It is also waterproof and stable so it won't wash away or react with the soil around it. The whole installation process, including the time it takes for the foam to cure, takes less than an hour so the homeowners can be back on their porch in no time!

Helical Piers to Level Foundation

Gerald noticed that a corner of his home was sinking and wanted to find a long-lasting solution. Gerald contacted Ayers and allowed our resident foreman Blade to inspect the area.


Blade noticed stair-step cracks in the home's walls and realized the foundation under the house was shifting. To correct the issue Blade installed a Helical Pier to stabilize the home.


Helical Piers are a tool trusted by Ayers due to their non-intrusive nature compared to other foundational repair systems. The piers are long screw-shaped drives that are driven deep under the home at an angle. The drives keep going till they pass the weak soil and find new firm ground. The tops of the piers are capped with load-bearing caps that provide a flat surface for the home to rest upon. 

Foundation Support for Prudenville, MI Home

Gerald and Nancy’s home was built in 1980, and they have been living in it since 1989. Over the years, the foundation has shifted slightly, but it wasn’t anything major. Recently, Gerald noticed huge stair step cracks in the foundation of the home. The cracks haven’t let any water inside, but it has caused the front corner of the house to sink. The couple called Ayers Basement Systems for an inspection. Our crew determined they would need Push Piers to every distribute the weight of the home to correct and prevent foundation shifting. 

Push Piers are round steel tubes that help carry the load of homes that are sinking or settling. It has a bracket that is secured to the outside footing of the foundation and is driven into the soil below. The weight of the home is transferred from the unstable soil causing settlement to the steel pier.  

Gerald and Nancy were delighted with the work completed by the Ayers crew. They were pleased with every step of the process from the first call to the final cleanup. They’ve lived in their house for years and can now remain there safely without fear of the house crumbling down around them. 

CleanSpace Solution for Houghton Lake, MI Crawl Space

Pete was looking to have some renovations for his crawl space to ensure it stays dry in the long run. He called Ayers and we sent out our System Design Specialists to determine the best solution. It was then decided we would install our CleanSpace solution along with our Drainage Matting and a SmartSump. 


CleanSpace consists of a durable, thick, plastic liner with a vapor barrier property that protects against excess moisture and water development. The encapsulation CleanSpace provides will create a water-tight barrier between your crawl space and the ground which in turn protects your home above it. Additionally, we installed our Drainage Matting which is a dimpled mat that lies below the CleanSpace liner and catches water in order to direct it to your sump pump system. SmartSump is specifically designed for crawl spaces to keep them dry and clean. This system is equipped with the Zoeller 1/3 horsepower pump with capability of pumping 2,500 gallons per hour. The SmartSump also gives you the option of adding an UltraSump Battery Backup Sump Pump for power outage situations. 


Pete is now worry-free from trouble keeping his crawl space clean and dry!
