TrenchDrain Gives Back Patio Access to St. Joseph, MI Homeowners

TrenchDrain Gives Back Patio Access to St. Joseph, MI Homeowners

Before After
TrenchDrain Gives Back Patio Access to St. Joseph, MI Homeowners TrenchDrain Gives Back Patio Access to St. Joseph, MI Homeowners

The back patio in the photos of this St. Joseph, MI home was a great place for the owners to kick back and relax at the end of the day. But as of lately, it had been causing a few headaches as well. The patio’s concrete slab was sloping towards the house, so whenever it rained water would puddle up at the door or enter the home.

The crew used TrenchDrain to give the owners the protection they were looking for. As you can see in the after photo, the drain spans across the entire doorway to keep every part of the home dry and protected. TrenchDrains can be either interior or exterior and are placed below floor level at low points or dips in the ground. The drains then act just like trenches and let gravity do the rest. These homeowners are now free to enjoy their back patio the way that they intended to.

The soil on the opposite side of this basement wall had caused the pipe to buckle and opened up a slight gap for water to enter. When it rained or snow melted, the leaks would be at their worse. As you can see in the before photo, the water would run down below the pipe and stain the wall. It was also common for the water to puddle on the floor before the owners could do anything about it. All of that was solved with the BrightWall panels in the after photo. The crew cut the panel around the shape of the pipe and placed it over the wall to create a rigid moisture barrier that won’t allow water to pass through. Instead as water leaks through the gap, it will flow down the wall behind the panel and into a drainage well at the foot of the wall. You can even see in the after photo where the fresh concrete was poured after the drainage well was installed. The BrightWall system not only stopped the leak, it also improved the look of the wall at the same time.

When this family moved into their St. Joseph, MI home and started experiencing allergies, they started researching what the cause could be. The home had a crawl space that wasn’t encapsulated, and after reading about how damp crawl space air can travel up through the home due to the Stack Effect, they decided to give us a call. Our team installed CleanSpace in the crawl space to seal off the home from the earth and help keep moisture out in the future. CleanSpace is a durable, thick liner made of polyester cord reinforcement. The liner blocks out water vapor from both the walls and dirt floor, keeping the air in the crawl space drier and healthier.

Saint Joseph, MI's Simple Concrete Leveling Solutions

Sinking concrete slabs around your Saint Joseph, MI home create a dangerous falling hazard that lowers your home's property value and curb appeal. We at Ayers Basement Systems offer innovative, simple solutions to your concrete leveling and lifting issues.

The exclusive PolyLevel®® solution raises your concrete surfaces with no mess and no-stress. It is a durable polymer solution that doesn't break down or wash away -- it is fast-acting and long-lasting! PolyLevel®® has been proven effective on sidewalks, driveways, garage floors, pool decks and more.

How PolyLevel®® works:

  • One of our crew drills small holes into the concrete slab.
  • A polymer solution is injected into the empty space beneath.
  • The solution expands, filling the space & stabilizing the slab.

Mud jacking or slab jacking is also a viable concrete leveling and lifting solution for larger concrete structures 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.

When a mud jacking is installed incorrectly and without the proper corresponding equipment, it can ultimately fail. Our mud jacking services are effective because we have the skill to implement it quickly and efficiently!

Job Stories From Saint Joseph, MI
Insulating a Saint Joseph Crawl Space

Mrs. Toth was not happy to see the signs of water damage in her home crawl space. She only knew when she noticed sloping floors and a gap between her walls and the ground on the first floor. Ayers's resident Foreman Bruce was able to help explain what these signs meant and what the best line of action would save her home and wallet the most grief.

Bruce prescribed a WaterGuard draining system as well as installing a CleanSpace lining. The WaterGuard system is installed in the basement floor as a way to divert access water that the sump pumps can not manage away from the home. this system is designed to work with the home's sump pump as a final failsafe against an unmanageable overflow of water. the CleanSpace lining is an antimicrobial barrier that deprives bacteria from an organic food source, preventing the buildup of mold and mildew.

Happy with her experience at Ayers, Mrs. Toth was relieved to learn all of our treatment methods are intended to be permanent.

Keeping St Joseph, MI Crawl Space Dry and Insulated

Customer had a moisture barrier in the crawl space installed by another company that had failed to keep water out. The homeowner complained of several leaks in the space. We installed a perimeter drainage system to capture moisture from the walls and floor and transport it to the newly installed sump pump. We also installed SilverGlo panels on the walls to provide extra insulation once the owner decided to finish the basement with a waterproof wall covering. These foam wall panels are made of small graphite particles that reflect heat. They also serve as a radiant barrier to reflect heat back into your crawl space. 

We also added a SaniDry Sedona humidifier to the crawl space to keep it dry. This customer will no doubt feel the difference when they walk into their basement with a dedicated dehumidifier keeping moisture out of the air. No more dank, damp air as you do your laundry down there. There are also significant energy saving costs over time.

Piering Fixes Floor Cracks in Saint Joseph, MI

Adam C. contacted us because he had a large crack in his basement floor that went across through multiple rooms. There was also another crack that had appeared under one of the windows. 

Our team and Adam decided that the best way to fix this issue was to install helical piers. These piers are mechanically screwed into the soil and the weight of the home is transferred to the piers. This helps lift the home back to its original position and to close the cracks.

Wet and Moldy Crawl Space in Saint Joseph, MI

Tawnya C. was experiencing a crawl space nightmare in her home. Her crawl space walls were made of cement blocks and dirt floor. It had recently flooded and she was sure mold began to grow and the wood was rotting. She desperately wanted to get her crawl space sealed up.

Our team came in and sealed and waterproofed Tawnya’s crawl space. Due to those concrete walls, it's easy for water and moisture to seep in. The moisture combined with the surface of the concrete walls is ideal for mold growth. We installed our durable Clean Space liner, made of inorganic material, to prevent mold growth and to keep moisture from seeping into the space. In addition to the liner, we installed the SaniDry Sedona, a dehumidifier, that wrings your air dry ensuring no moisture is in the air.

Another point of entrance for water and moisture in crawl spaces is through the vents. Allowing that outside air in can cause condensation around pipes. Our vent covers are plastic and fit snugly in order to stop air and moisture from entering. This allows the SaniDry Sedona to effectively do its job and dry out your crawl space.

After sealing Tawnya’s crawl space, she no longer has to worry about a wet, moldy crawl space and can ensure her family’s health is safe. Worrying about the health risks associated with having mold in your home, such as the risk of getting asthma, is a thing of the past.

Water Coming into Basement at Seam of the Wall in Saint Joseph, MI

Nicholas V. of Saint Joseph, MI had water coming into his basement through the seam between the wall and the basement floor. Because of the damage that can be caused by basement water, Nicholas gave us a call for a professional fix.

We installed two of our favorite products for this project: 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 system rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting water that seeps into the basement from the walls (or the seam between the wall and the floor). Once this water is collected it is redirected to the sump pump -- the TripleSafe -- to be pumped up and out of the home.

WaterGuard Rescues Flooded Basement in Saint Joseph, MI

Matt P. of Saint Joseph, MI is a new home owner. He was very frustrated because he had bought his house a couple of weeks ago and had already removed over 800 gallons of water in the basement. This being said, Matt called us for professional help.

We determined that the best way to solve this issue would be to install a customer favorite: the WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting water that seeps into the basement from the walls. Once that water is collected, it is directed to the sump pump to be pupped up and out of the home. 


Waterproofing in Saint Joseph, MI Home

Jillian J. of Saint Joseph, MI has a home that was built in 1956 out of cement blocks. It has a finished basement but water would trickle down to the main living area of the basement, causing water damage. With this being said, Jillian gave us a call. 

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

Water problems? Good one.

CleanSpace Saves Saint Joseph Crawl Space

Jeffrey H. from Saint Joseph, MI had never had allergies before he and his family moved into their new home that is 44 years old. His whole family had been seriously congested ever since the move. He had cold floors above his crawlspace and his drywall was starting to crack. On top of that, there was a musty smell invading the home. 

Our solution to this crawl space problem? The CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system. CleanSpace is a 20mm thick plastic lining that completely seals off crawl spaces from the surrounding elements. No dirt, cold air, or water has a chance at getting through this stuff! As an added bonus, CleanSpace is made with anti-microbial properties that prevent mold growth. 

Say goodbye to allergies, cold air, and moisture-associated mold!

WaterGuard and SuperSump in Saint Joseph Home

Matthew B. lives in a home that was built 50 years ago. The basement used to be finished but he has torn down the paneling and found mold and dampness in one corner. There is also a basement window that sometimes let in water. He did not have a sump pump and there were horizontal and vertical cracks in the walls.

Our fix? The WaterGuard French drain system and the SuperSump premier sump pump system. We began by installing the SuperSump. The SuperSump is a sump pump that is specifically designed to keep your basement dry for long periods of time. Capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour, this sump pump is suitable for heavy water intrusion.  

After installing that, we moved onto the WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard rests below the 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 -- the SuperSump, in this case -- and pumped out of the home. 

Matthew, say goodbye to a wet basement.
