Bowing Wall Repair in New Lothrop MI

Bowing Wall Repair in New Lothrop MI

Before After
Bowing Wall Repair in New Lothrop MI Bowing Wall Repair in New Lothrop MI

Walt had a wall in his crawl space that was starting to bow due to the soil surrounding the home pushing on the wall. The wall has moved a lot within the past 6 months causing the bowing to get worse. He installed some temporary support for the wall until he could find a permanent solution that will keep his home safe. We installed the GeoLock Wall Anchors to keep the wall from moving further as well as help to return the wall to the correct position. They work by using the hard and stable soil beyond the home to stabilize the wall. They do not damage the wall or take up space and they are installed with minimal disruption to the lawn.

Courtney and Trevor purchased their home about a year ago and during the walkthrough with the inspector, he had mentioned that the crawl space could use some attention. Since then, the moisture and musty smell coming from the crawl space had become worrisome, especially since they have 2 babies in the home. The couple had a few quotes done, but none were as thorough as Ayers. Our crew determined that they would need CleanSpace to encapsulate the crawl space, as well as a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier. 

The CleanSpace Wall System is a moisture barrier that uses a thick plastic liner along crawl space walls to keep them dry and last decades longer. It also has antibacterial properties that prevent mold and bacteria growth. Damp air takes more energy to heat and cool. Cutting down on the moisture in the crawl space, in turn, will cut down on how much it costs to heat or cool your home. The SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier automatically removes up to 100 pints of water a day from the air in the home's crawl space. The system circulates the now dry air through the crawl space and automatically removes the leftover water so you don't have to. 

Courtney and Trevor were more than satisfied with the work Ayers did. They were both ecstatic to be able to ensure a home with safe and healthy air to breathe for their kids, and being able to cut down on energy costs was an added plus!

Job Stories From Shiawassee County, MI
Wall Anchors Stabilize a Settling Building in Jackson, MI

As is often the case, our customers had a few problems on their property, but it was the settling of their gardening building that prompted them to call. When the garage door for the building stopped closing properly, their contractor discovered that the support slab was cracked and the floor had sunk 2-3" in places. The culprit? Likely the nearby irrigation system, which helped the soil wash away and destabilized the foundation.

They also had a few leaning retaining walls and some slabs in their driveway that had shifted and settled, but at this time their main focus was the garage.

We used GeoLock Wall Anchors and PolyLevel to raise the slab and stabilize the walls, rerouted some drainage to circumvent the soil washout, and made plans to return in the future when they were ready to proceed with the other issues.

Waterproofing a Monolithic Basement in Allendale, MI

We were called to inspect a rental property in Allendale that had high rates of water accumulation where the walls met the floor. We discovered that the floor was monolithic - that is, the floor and footer were poured together in one piece rather than separately - and so we needed to use a special waterproofing system.

Because monolithic floors are a floor/footer combination, they're much thicker than traditional floors, so jackhammering them takes forever and creates endless dust. So instead of the traditional WaterGuard installation, we used the DryTrak drainage system. DryTrak installs above the floor and looks similar to baseboard. It collects water from the floor/wall joint and directs it to the sump pump for discharge.

Along with the DryTrak, we installed a new sump pump and put IceGuard and a Lawnscape outlet on the discharge line to prevent backups and allow the line to be buried.

CrawlSpace Saved with CleanSpace in Laingsburg, MI

Sara K. of Laingsburg, MI dealt with a moist crawl space that was fostering mold before she called us. There was a constant humidity in the entire house, as well. Mold and humidity can create serious health issues like asthma and serious home issues like sticking doors and windows. 

To remedy this problem, we installed our patented CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system. CleanSpace is a 20mm thick plastic lining that fully blocks off the crawl space from the surrounding elements. No dirt, cold air, water, or humidity will enter. As a bonus, CleanSpace is made with anti-microbial components, disallowing the growth of mold.

Water in Finished Basement in Laingsburg, MI

Karen P. from Laingsburg, MI had her basement finished just to have water appear afterward. This is not good -- water in a basement can cause mold growth and humidity in the basement and the home itself. Because of this, she gave us a call. 

To solve her problem, we installed our patented WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard sits below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting water that leaks in from the walls. The water is then redirected to the home's sump pump, and pumped outside.

WaterGuard Keeps Basement Dry in Laingsburg, MI

Karen P. of Laingsburg, MI have a mostly finished basement but were experiencing water problems in the corner of the basement. Thus, Karen called us for a professional solution. 

Our fix? The WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing collecting water that seeps into the basement from its walls. Once this water is collected, it is redirected ot the usm pump to be pumped up and out of the home.

Waterproofing Saves Wet Basement in Laingsburg, MI

Tom K. of Laingsburg, MI had a home inspection done a few weeks ago and found moisture on the floor next to the foundation wall. He didn't know where the water was coming from and needed a permanent fix.

Our solution? The SuperSump premier sump pump system and the WaterGuard French drain system. We started out the project by installing the SuperSump. 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.

Next we moved onto the WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard sits below the basement floor and above the foundation footing collecting water that seeps into the basement from the walls. Once this water is caught it is redirected to the sump pump and pumped up and out of the home. 


PowerBrace Saves Failing Foundation in Laingsburg, MI

Todd M. of Laingsburg, MI has cinderblock basement walls. Before calling us, there were both vertical and horizontal cracks in the basement walls probably caused by bowing. With the house being built in the 1970s, Todd reached out for professional help.

Our solution to Todd's problem would prove to be the installation of the PowerBrace foundation wall repair system. PowerBrace is a foundation 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.

With this installation, Todd had no need to worry about a failing foundation any longer. 

Cold Crawl Space in Perry, MI

Bob felt his crawl space was getting really cold in the winter and really hot during the Summer. It was always dusty and full of spiders. His house was built in 1952 with cement block walls and a sand floor.

We installed out CleanSpace liner and drainage matting. The drainage matting is installed to separate the crawl space from the earth. It keeps any water or  moisture from entering into the crawl space. The CleanSpace liner is made of a durable plastic, similar to that of a pool liner, that encapsulates your crawl space. It is puncture and tear resistant. Additionally, it has an ingredient made right into the plastic that prevents mold and bacteria growth.

Owosso, MI Basement Transformed into Clean, Dry Space

This customer's home was plagued by a continuously damp basement and unstable foundation walls which had started to bow. We immediately set out to remove all water from her basement by installing our SuperSump Pump which removes water from the basement floor and our SaniDry Basement Air System - a high capacity dehumidifier that removes moisture from the air to help her basement stay and smell dry and clean.

We also installed GeoLock Wall anchors to stabilise her foundation walls that were severely bowing. These anchors are large steel plates attached to the affected walls and attached to an outside, smaller underground anchor embedded in stable soil via a steel cable. These anchors can be tightened over time to hopefully straighten the affected wall(s).

Concrete Leveling in Kalamazoo, MI

Brian's sidewalk that leads up to his house had sunk so he called our team for leveling help. We installed PolyLevel, a waterproof and long-lasting system designed to fix concrete slabs that have sunk. It uses a polyurethane foam that expands and has a high density in order to lift the concrete slabs back to their original level. The process is quite simple and is done by drilling small holes into the concrete and then inserting the foam into the holes.

Solid Pressure is Bad News for Foundations in Perry, MI

Robert was experiencing cracking in his retaining wall and bowing foundation walls. This is likely from the pressure of surrounding soil changing with various weather conditions. Our team came out and installed GeoLock Wall Anchors. The Geo-Lock Wall Anchor System repairs walls that are sliding inwards, bowing, or buckling. A wall anchor will be installed inside your home and extend outward towards stable, hard-packed soil around your home to anchor it in place. This prevents any further movement permanently and is installed with minimal disruption to your home or your lawn. We can even conceal the anchors with our Hide-A-Way covers for a more finished appearance. The wall anchors will make sure that the walls are no longer vulnerable to outside pressures and the foundation will stay in place. After calling other companies we are grateful that Robert chose us to help him in his time of need. After this permanent solution, he will no longer have to stress about the foundation and can just enjoy his beautiful home and yard. 

Leveling Sidewalks and a Driveway in Owosso MI

Greg had some concrete slabs that were settled and cracked that he wanted to be leveled. We used PolyLevel to lift and level the concrete slabs that had fallen. PolyLevel is an injectable foam that goes under the concrete to raise it back to the correct level. It is waterproof and stable so it won't get washed away or react with the soil below. It cures in about 15 minutes so the installation won't be inconvenient to the homeowners. To seal the cracks and stop debris from getting under to degrade the concrete from below, we used NexusPro. This sealant is designed to withstand harsh weather conditions, won't crack or bubble, and dries in a fraction of the time of other sealants. 

Stabilizing a Bowing Basement Wall in New Lothrop MI

Walt had a foundation wall that was bowing due to the earth pushing on the wall, it had moved a lot in the past 6 months. He put temporary support up to keep the wall stabilized until he could find a permanent solution. We used GeoLock Anchors to support the falling wall and help to return it to the original position. GeoLock Anchors extend beyond the home into the hard, packed soil outside the home. They use the strong soils to brace the wall to prevent movement. The installation has minimal disruption to the yard, does not damage the basement wall, and does not take up usable space!


Waterproofing System Saves Laingsburg, MI Home from Water Intrusion

Ruth called Ayers after noticing issues with his drainage system and water leaking into his basement. We sent out a crew to inspect these issues and it was determined by our System Design Specialists that our WaterGuard, TripleSafe Sump Pump, and IceGuard products would be the best solution here.


WaterGuard is a subfloor drainage system installed to ensure water and dirt is directed away from your foundation and instead flows to the sump pump. Concrete is then poured over this drainage system to conceal it and you can have regular flooring installed over this as well if desired. Next, the TripleSafe consists of three pumps that fit in one liner that work together in keeping water out of your basement. The first pump will be the main pump at work while the second is there for backup, and the last pump is battery-operated meaning it will turn on in emergency power outage situations. Lastly, the IceGuard was installed for the outdoor drainage line to ensure this doesn't freeze up in cold weather. It will eject any water away from your foundation.


Ruth was relieved to have these waterproofing systems installed to ensure no more pesky water leaks!
