The PowerBrace System reshapes your walls to be in perfect alignment gradually over time. By correcting the bowing walls gradually, Ayers prevents any sudden cracks or collapse from over correction and sudden changes. The PowerBrace system is coated with a zinc layer that prevents it from weathering and rusting over time, making it a more reliable system in the long run. One of the most appreciated aspects of the PowerBrace system by homeowners is the fact that no outdoor excavation is required!

Sump pumps are one of the most important features of a waterproofed basement. A sump pump you can depend on is key to not having to redo your waterproofing. As you can see in the before photo, the sump pump in this St. Johns basement was doing everything it could to keep the basement above water. Sadly, it wasn’t enough. When we received the call, there was standing water in the basement, so the homeowner wanted us to come out and check for clogging in the line. Our system design specialist presented the owner with 3 repair options that would solve the discharge problem. Eventually, the owner settled on a new sump pump liner and a perimeter drainage system.

Think of the sump pump liner as the bucket seen in the after photo. The liner will prevent the pump from clogging up in that muddy hole while also allowing water from both the perimeter drainage system and the ground to be pumped out. For a new perimeter drainage system, the team went with our WaterGuard. WaterGuard sits in the foundation and wall joint and will collect any standing water from the basement. Included in the system were 4 inspection points, so the homeowner can check the system for clogging whenever he wants. The two systems were then tied to the preexisting discharge line for disposal.

If you’re thinking about upgrading your sump pump as well, then give us a call. We’ll be more than happy to discuss your options with you.

This half-finished basement was dealing with water seeping through the cracks of the basement walls and damaging the wood panels. When a finished basement begins to leak – especially one that uses wood material – not only does it damage the wall, it also means that mold isn’t far behind. To solve this homeowner’s waterproofing issue without sacrificing the finish of his basement, the owner gave Ayers a call.

Our EverLast Wall Restoration System is designed specifically for finished walls. The panels are made from inorganic materials making them mold resistant and durable enough to not be affected by water damage. Once the crew put in a perimeter drainage system at the foot of the wall and removed the wood panels, they installed a vapor barrier to direct moisture to the system below. The EverLast panels were then attached in front of the vapor barrier to create a permanent solution for this waterproofing problem.

Simple Concrete Leveling Services in Saint Johns, MI

Sinking concrete surfaces around your Saint Johns, MI home create a dangerous falling hazard to your family and house guests, as well as lower your home's overall image and value. We at Ayers Basement Systems of Michigan & Indiana know how hard you work to keep your home safe, so we offer simple, non-invasive concrete leveling and lifting solutions that are proven durable for your home repair needs!

How PolyLevel® works

PolyLevel® is perfect for concrete leveling and lifting because of its easy-to-apply, quick-drying polymer solution that bonds to concrete surfaces like decks, garage floors, walkways, driveways, steps and more. Also, it is incredibly durable and can withstand weather damage, aging and general deterioration.

To begin our PolyLevel® installation, one of our crew drills small holes into the concrete slab. A polymer solution is injected into the empty space beneath and as the solution expands, it fills the space and stabilizes the slab.

How Mud jacking or slab jacking works

For larger, heavier concrete structures, we offer our tough mud jacking and slab jacking services that provide long-lasting effects when used with slab piers. 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.

Many of our Mid, Western and Northern Michigan competitors don't know how to accurately install a mud jacking or what corresponding materials are required. When a mud jacking is not done correctly then it will ultimately fail you. Our crew of structural experts knows exactly what your mud jacking needs to provide strong, durable results!

Job Stories From Saint Johns, MI
Leaky Basement After Rains is Remedied With WaterGuard

Jim S. of Saint Johns, MI has had water leaking into his basement during heavy rains. This water leakage can cause serious damage to a basement, so Jim gave us a call.

We installed our patented WaterGuard French drain system to keep water out of Jim's basement and off his floor for good. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting water that seeps into the basement from the walls. Once this water is collected it is redirected to the sump pump to be pumped up and out of the home. 

Seriously Sunken Slab 101

Iyla S. of Saint Johns, MI has a concrete approach to her garage. This slab has sunk, creating a severe drop from the garage floor. Thus, she gave us a call.

We used our patented PolyLevel injection foam to raise this slab back to its original position. We drilled small, penny-sized holes into the slab and then injected the PolyLevel through them. Once the PolyLevel did its job at raising the slab, we refilled the holes, making them barely noticeable. At the end of it all, Iyla could walk on her slab after only about 15 minutes.

SuperSump and WaterGuard Installation in Saint Johns, MI

Thomas J. of Saint Johns, MI had terrible water problems in his basement -- especially after it rained. This water would cover the floor, causing damage that no one wants to deal with. This said, Thomas gave us a call.

We installed two of our favorite products: 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 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 directed to the sump pump to be pumped up and out of the home. 

 

Sinking Sidewalk Raised by PolyLevel in Saint Johns

Luke M. of Saint Johns, MI has a sidewalk that was sinking before we made a visit. A sunken sidewalk can present not only an unsightly appearance, but also a major tripping hazard. This said, Luke gave us a call.

We used our patented PolyLevel injection foam to raise this sidewalk. We began by drilling small, penny-sized holes into the concrete and we then injected the foam through those holes. After the injection we refilled the holes, making this project very non-invasive.

Luke can now enjoy a sidewalk that is back at its original height that has a long-lasting fix.

TripleSafe and WaterGuard Installation in Saint Johns, MI

Ruth B. of Saint Johns, MI had small puddles of water in a couple spots in her basement, especailly after heavy rains. This can cause problems not only in the basement but upstairs as well. So, she gave us a call.

Our solution? The TripleSafe sump pump system and the WaterGuard French drain system. 

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.

The WaterGuard rests below the basement floor but above the foundation footing, collecting the water seepage that enters the basement. Once this water is collected, it is redirected to the sump pump to be pumped up and out of the home. The sump pump, in this case, would be the TripleSafe.

Window Drain Duct Protects a Saint Johns, MI Basement

One of the reasons we suggest egress cover lids is to keep rainwater from pouring in. Jim’s new egress window well had been dealing with that exact problem. The water would then leak through the window sill and pour down his wall. Our crew’s solution was to direct the leakage down to a perimeter drainage system and attach that system to an existing sump pump. To lead the leaking water to the perimeter drainage system below, they used a window duct drain. By placing the duct drain under the window sill and attaching it to the drainage system below, the water will flow in a direct path behind the duct pipe to the Waterguard system. Jim won't have to worry about water leaking in through the window or any well else in the basement.
