PowerBrace and FlexiSpan Wall Repair Saves Sparta, MI Home Sale

While trying to sell her house, the home inspector told our customer that the basement wall was bowed 2". She called us to fix it so the house would pass inspection and sell. 

As is the case with many bowed walls, there was a leaking crack that had been poorly "sealed" in the past. We installed a FlexiSpan sealant to take care of the leak, and a PowerBrace wall reinforcement system to strengthen and straighten the wall.

Many homeowners avoid their crawl space as much as possible, but this may lead to an undetected plumbing leak that could cause major flooding. Upon arrival of this home we found some signs of prior leakage which is why we opted to install this system. If any water gets into the space, it will be directed to the drain and forced to seep into the soil below. If there ever was a leak, the SmartDrain is installed with an alarm system to alert the homeowner of the problem. 

To keep any other small amounts of moisture out of the space, CleanSpace was wrapped around the piers, floors, and walls acting as a strong vapor barrier. This white liner is mold resistant and extremely durable, sure to keep the crawl space dry once and for all.

It's common for a crawl space to collect dirt and debris over time but leaving a crawl space unattended could lead to damage in the future. Many homeowners look for a product they don't have to check on or replace which why we recommended CleanSpace for this crawl space in Harbor Springs, MI. CleanSpace lines an entire area with its durable, mold resistant material and acts as a vapor barrier to keep moisture and dirt out of the crawl space.

Job Stories From Sparta, MI
New Support for a Taller Home

The previous owner of Linda's home has had the second floor raised. The past owner neglected to have extra support installed, adding a major stress factor to the home's supportive work.  Needing a safe and reliable solution, Linda contacted Ayers.


Our resident foreman Bruce was able to inspect the area and diagnose the issue. The home's crawlspace and rim joist were too weak for the amount of weight the home had. Bruce and his team installed SmartJack piers to re-stabilize the home.


SmartJack piers are metal beams placed strategically along the structure's supportive rim joist. The bottoms are anchored into the ground with poured concrete while the tops are capped with load-bearing joints that are attached to the rim joist. The entire pier's height is adjusted till there is constant pressure being applied, reintroducing support to the entire framework.

WaterGuard and TripleSafe Installations in Sparta, MI Home

Leann K. from Sparta, MI was having water puddle in her basement before reaching out to us. Standing water, or any water at all, can lead to mold growth, bad odors, sticking doors and windows, and congestion in the home. For all these reasons, Leann gave us a call – and we had the perfect solution for her. 

We installed two of our favorite patented products: the WaterGuard French drain system and the TripleSafe sump pump system. The WaterGuard French drain system rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting water that seeps into the basement from he walls. Once this water is collected, it is transferred to the sump pump (the TripleSafe) to be pumped up and out of the home.

The TripleSafe sump pump 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.

WaterGuard and TripleSaf work in perfect harmony to make sure that Leann's basement stays dry and free of issues.


Three Sinking Slabs Raised at Home in Sparta, MI

Tim K. of Sparta, MI has some seriously bad luck with the cement slabs at his house. His front porch, sidewalk, and back patio had all been sinking deeper and deeper into the earth, created a tripping hazard for his family and his guests. This said, Tim gave us a call.

We used our patented PolyLevel injection foam to raise these three slabs for Tim. PolyLevel is inserted underneath the slabs by drilling small, penny-sized holes and using those as access points. After we are done raising the slab, the holes are refilled and barely noticeable. In the end, the slabs are ready to walk on again within about 15 minutes!

Bowing Wall Put in it's Place in Sparta, MI

Ben L. from Sparta, MI was in serious trouble before he reached out to us: he had a bowing wall. A bowing foundation wall can put the home and its occupants in danger. This said, Ben gave us a call for a professional solution. 

We installed our patented PowerBrace foundation wall repair system. PowerBrace stabilizes tilting, bowing, or buckling basement walls. The system uses steel I-beams that secure to the joists above the wall to offer maximum support. The PowerBrace system is even strong enough to bring foundation walls back to their original position with continued tightening.

SuperSump and WaterGuard in Sparta, MI Basement

Courtney P. of Sparta, MI had two inches of water in her basement. There are 2 small windows that water was seeping in from. On top of that, the drain tile system was not pulling water away from the home. Hence, she gave us a call.

Our solution? The SuperSump premier sump pump system and the WaterGuard French drain system. We started out 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, this beast s suitable for heavy water intrusion.

Following that installment, we moved onto the WaterGuard system. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting water that seeps into the basement through the walls, etc. Once that water is collected it is redirected to the sump pump -- the SuperSump, in this case -- to be pumped out of the home.

Courtney, say goodbye to water issues in your basement.


SmartJacks Boost a Sale in Sparta, MI

Kristina was in the process of selling her house when a home inspector informed her that the floor joists were sinking. Basically, the weight of the floor was too much for the foundation to handle and caused the floor to slope on one end. As you can imagine, sloping floors aren’t exactly an attractive home feature in the eyes of potential buyers. Since every other aspect of the house ready for the market, Kristina really wanted to get this problem taken care of in a hurry. So, she and her realtor reached out to Ayers looking for a solution.

Failing floor joists are actually a pretty common problem. It makes sense when you consider that floor joists and most support beams are made of an easily rotted material, wood. The fact that the joists and beams are set up in damp basements or crawl spaces doesn’t help too much, either. When dealing with failing floor joists like Kristina’s, we’ve found that the best solution is a two-step process. Step one is providing a more reliable base for the floor joists. By using galvanized steel beams, the team reinforced the rotting joists with material that wouldn’t be affected by the moist environment of the basement. Once the beams were attached, the crew moved on to step two and installed our SmartJack Floor Support System. SmartJacks work the same way a car jack would. They were placed under the steel beams and then raised to a height that would level out the sloping floor.

Kristina’s floor is now as ready to sell as the rest of her home, good luck!

My house is approx 80-90 years old with a "field stone" foundation. Half of the house is over a Michigan basement and the other half is over a crawl space. There is a foundation wall running through the middle of the house that separates the two areas. The house has sagged towards the middle over the years and has created a noticeable hump in the main level floor over were the dividing foundation wall is. I'm looking for an estimate on leveling that out.
