Concrete Around Swimming Pool Gets Lifted

Concrete Around Swimming Pool Gets Lifted

Before After
Concrete Around Swimming Pool Gets Lifted Concrete Around Swimming Pool Gets Lifted

When we got a call from Randy in South Haven, MI that the concrete around his swimming pool is starting to become unlevel, we knew exactly what we had to do: PolyLevel Injections. The "Before" photo that you see on the left shows a zoomed in photo of one slab of concrete, however there were multiple slabs that were in need of PolyLevel injections. One of the many advantages of our PolyLevel injections is that it is waterproof. Once cured, PolyLevel will not wash away. This is especially important being right beside a pool. Another advantage of our PolyLevel is that it cures extremely fast. Within 15-30 minutes after being raised, it will have already reached at least 90% of its strength, therefore it can be used as it normally would very shortly after the job has been completed.

Job Stories From Van Buren County, MI
Installing Exterior Waterproofing in a Gobles, MI Cottage

Our customer called with a different type of water issue. His cottage sat lower than the surrounding driveway, and when it rained or snow thawed, all of the water was directed right to the laundry room.

This was one instance where installing a perimeter waterproofing system in the affected room was not the solution. Instead, we installed a curtain drain along the perimeter of the home between the house and the driveway. We also installed a TrenchDrain system at the most severe water points. These two systems will work in conjunction to catch and funnel the water to a different discharge point before it can enter the home.

Putting a South Haven, MI Customer's Mind at Ease

A remodeling job for Janet’s South Haven, MI basement had turned a relaxing summer home into a crawl space nightmare. When part of the brick foundation was replaced with blocks, the contractor had failed to ensure the floor above was leveled off, causing the entire 1st floor to slope downward. In turn, the slope brought about more problems - including cracks and a leaky crawl space. And no matter how many times Janet tried to patch those cracks, they would reappear. She then hired another contractor to fix the lean of the basement, thinking that would solve all of her problems. After the contractor’s additional support beam solution failed, Janet became weary of letting just anyone try to help. But when she decided she was going to sell the house in the near future, she knew she would have to look for a trustworthy company to solve her problems.

After looking over our history of work, positive customer reviews, and skimming through science and repair books, Janet decided she was ready to move forward with Ayers. Our system design specialist met with her and created a plan to drain the water in her crawl space, keep it dry afterward, and restore the floor above to a leveled height. To give the water an escape route out of the crawl space, the crew installed a Smart drain. Smart drains behave similarly to a basement perimeter drainage system. By sitting around the perimeter of the crawl space floor, the drain can collect water that runs down the walls and then directs it to the crawl space sump pump. Covering the floor of the crawl space with a CleanSpace liner ensures that moisture won’t pass through the dirt floor and into the crawl space either. Lastly, the crew replaced the window on the leaning side of the basement with block concrete to boost the floor back to its original level.

We appreciate your confidence in our work, Janet, and wish you the best of luck on the sale of your home!

ShotCrete and CarbonArmor Save a Foundation in Paw Paw, MI

Due to rusting support beams and a bowing wall, Josh and Angie were worried about the safety of their Paw Paw, MI home. They began talks with us almost a year ago while their home was still on the market. After a few months passed and they made the decision not to sell, we began a plan to save their foundation. The house was on a hill where the walkout basement was directly underneath the garage. Josh and Angie had noticed large cracks on the basement walls and some on the first floor, as well. Stair step cracking is usually a sign of a collapsing wall. To maintain the structural integrity of the home, something needed to be done to reinforce the support beams and walls.

Our newly available service, shotcrete, can be used to spray cement just about anywhere. After removing the rust from the support beams on the ceiling, the team created a frame for when the shotcrete was sprayed. A new layer of concrete turned the rusty and unstable beams into a sturdy support system for the basement ceiling/garage floor.  To counteract one of the collapsing walls, the crew used the hi-tech CarbonArmor Wall Reinforcement system. Although it’s a fast installation, the technology behind the fiber straps has been used to reinforce bomb shelters and bridges, so there is no doubt to its durability and strength. With these two innovative systems working together, Angie and Josh can rest easy knowing their home is safe from the foundation problems of the past.

Speeding up a Home Sale in South Haven, MI

Charles’ home had been on the market for two years and still had no prospects in sight. He was starting to suspect that the moisture in the crawl space was the reason, and his suspicions were all but confirmed when an inspector came by and suggested he think about waterproofing. His first thought was to have the entire crawl space encapsulated, but when our system design specialist had a look, he came up with a different solution.

The crawl space was mostly leaking through the walls and dirt floor. To capture the water from these leaks, the system design specialist came up with the idea to place a drain tile system around the perimeter of the crawl space. The drain was then covered with gravel to allow water to easy flow into the system. Since the drain tile was connected to a crawl space sump pump system, it will be pumped out through the discharge line all the way to a lawnscape outlet. Another threat to the crawl space was the rotted rim joist along one of the crawl space walls where it met the ceiling. Rather than just sealing up the joist, the crew replaced the entire rim to guarantee the next homeowners wouldn’t struggle with the same problems Charles had.

We hope that with this fix, Charles can finally get his home sold. Good Luck!

Stabilizing a Bowed Wall in Gobles, MI

Our customer called us because a horizontal crack in their basement wall was enlarging, and the wall had started bowing. There was no water coming through the crack, but they were concerned about the safety of the bowing wall.

After our inspection, in which we decided PowerBraces were needed to stabilize and straighten the wall, they decided to hold off because the house was up for sale and they were sure they could get the buyer to pay for the repair.

Well, we heard from them about six months later, when the bowing wall was holding up the sale of their home. We installed the PowerBraces and, over time, will hopefully be able to tighten them in order to straighten the wall.

Bowing Wall Repaired Before Home Sale In Greenville, MI

This homeowner gave us a call when he was trying to sell his home. He had an offer and things were moving along just fine until the home inspection. Unfortunately, the bowing wall in the basement was a deal breaker. This wall needed to be fixed so the home could go back on the market an get sold.

We came out and used a series of wall anchors along the affected area to help support the wall and provide an opportunity to straighten the wall over time with tightening. We excavated a small amount to soil on the exterior of the wall and removed the paneling on the interior. Geo-Lock earth anchors were buried in the ground away from the home and were connected to long steel geo-lock c-channels on the inside using steel rods. This provided strong even support across the wall and reduces the pressure that was causing it to move inward. The soil was filled back in on the exterior of the home and graded properly. Now this homeowner can refinish the wall and get his home sold. We look forward to seeing how it works out for him.

Complete Waterproofing in Mattawan, MI

Tim F.'s home was built in 1980 with cement block walls. Water was entering the basement from the floor -- there was a strange hole that looked like a manhole cover that water was seeping from it. Tim has an unfinished basement and did not have a sumpu pump.

How did we take care of this? Well, we began by installing our patented WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard acts as a collection bin for water that seeps into the basement. It rests below the floor and above the foundation footing, normally around the perimeter of the basement. 

After that, we installed the SuperSump permier sump pump system. SuperSump is perfect for homes with heavy water intrusion in their basement, like Tim. SuperSump provides total protection and fits perfectly with the WaterGuard French drain system. 

WaterGuard in Paw Paw, MI Home Solves Water Issue

Greg N. from Paw Paw just moved in a few months ago. Upon moving in, he saw a few cracks in the basement floor but this was his first water problem. Water was seeping up from the floor and there are two hairline cracks. Half of the basement is finished but the water was ruining his carpet. Hence, he gave us a call.

We decided the best fix for his situation was to install our patented WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard rests below the floor and above the foundation footing, collecting water that enters in from the walls of the basement. Once that water is collected, it is redirected to the home's sump pump and pumped outside.

Water problems? WaterGuard hasn't heard of them.

Bowing Gobles, MI Wall Now Stabilized Using PowerBraces

Cathy and Jeff G. called because their block basement wall was bowing and had a large crack in the center. They had lived in the home for 30 years, and had some repairs done in the past but the crack continued to grow in size. There was no water seepage due to a sump pump that was located directly next to the leaking wall, but these homeowners wanted to effectively fix their failing wall once and for all.

To repair the failing wall we installed the PowerBrace system. To begin the installation we sized steel I-beams to fit the height of the basement and then secured them to the base of the wall at the floor and to the joists above the wall using powerful steel brackets. After the system was tightened into place, the wall was immediately stabilized and able to be tightened over time to potentially shift the wall back to its original position.

SuperSump and WaterGuard Saves South Haven, MI Basement

Liji H. of South Haven, MI called us when water became an issue in his basement. He told us that water would come in mainly down the steps and when it would rain really hard. He also mentioned that dampness would come up through the cracks in the floor. 

Our fix? 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, this piece of equipment is suitable for heavy water intrusion.

After that was installed, we moved onto the WaterGuard system. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting the water that seeps into the basement from the walls. Once that water is collected, it is redirected to the sump pump (the SuperSump) to be pumped outside of the home. These two systems work in perfect harmony to make this basement completely waterproofed. 

 

Complete Waterproofing in South Haven, MI

Tracy S. of South Haven, MI called us when she had had enough of her water problem. She would get water seeping in the basement during heavy rains and needed a solution. 

Our fix? WaterGuard and TripleSafe. The TripleSafe sump pump system 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.

Once that was installed, we put in the WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor but above the foundation footing, collecting the water that seeps into the basement. After that water is is the drain, it goes to the sump pump -- the TripleSump -- to be pumped outside. 

 

Failing Gobles, MI Wall Now Stablized Thanks to Geo-Lock Wall Anchors

Paula and John M. called because one of the walls in their basement had both stair-step and horizontal cracks and was bowing inward. The problem had been worsening over time and they were ready for a solution that would permanently fix their failing foundation wall.

To stabilize the wall and prevent it from cracking or shifting any further, we installed the Geo-Lock wall anchor system. This system used steel earth anchors that were placed deep in the ground in stable soil outside of the foundation wall. The earth anchors were then connected to the wall with an interior wall anchor and secured with steel rods. The system was then tightened into place and the wall was stabilized. Although this installation required outside excavation, we still tried to limit the amount of disruption to the home and the landscaping outside was backfilled when we were finished.

Smart Jack System in South Haven Basement

Ed B. of South Haven, MI had bought a foreclosed house to fix it and turn into a rental property. The house had a short, Michigan basement that was falling apart. There was a crack in the foundation that was previously fixed, the floor was not level, and there was signs of settling before we got a call from him. Ed had other companies give him quotes with recommendations to lift the house and rebuild the whole basement. He hoped this could be avoided. 

Our solution? The SmartJack crawl space support system. Although this property did not have a crawl space, it did have only a 5 foot high basement, so this system worked just the same in this situation. SmartJack is strong enough to support loads of moer than 60,000lbs and is made of galvanized steel to prevent erosion. 

Lower level problems are no longer prevalent with the SmartJack system.

Settled Foundation Issues Resolved in Bloomingdale, MI Home

Julie D. contacted us because she was looking for an effective solution that would fix her foundation settlement issue. The floor in her kitchen and dining room area was sinking several inches and without a proper fix, the problem would continue to worsen over time and cause multiple other issues for the homeowner.

In order to lift the sunken foundation and prevent it from settling again in the future, we installed helical piers.  We first removed the soil outside of the settled area in order to install the piers at the footing of the home. The helical piers were then secured to the home with steel brackets and were then drilled down deep into the ground until they reached stable soil. Once the system was completely installed, the home was lifted, permanently stabilized and the excavated soil was replaced. This system ensured the weight of the home was transferred down through the piers and into stable soil, which would prevent it from sinking once again.

Sinking Sidewalk Repaired with PolyLevel in Mattawan, MI

Jason B. of Mattawan, MI had a sunken cement sidewalk that was creating a tripping hazard before he reached out to us. 

Our fix? PolyLevel foam injection. PolyLevel is proven to provide a better solution than mudjacking and is far less intrusive. We begin by making penny-sized holes in the slab and then inject the PolyLevel foam. Once the PolyLevel is in place, we refill the holes, making them nearly invisible.

Puddling Water and Musty Odor in Paw Paw, MI Basement

Phyllis S. of Paw Paw, MI had water puddling in her basement and an intense musty odor being carried up to her home. When she had had enough of these unpleasantries, she gave us a call. 

Our solution for her situation was to install 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 systems rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing collecting water that gets into the basement from outside. After this water is collected it is redirected to the sump pump -- the TripleSafe -- to be pumped up and out of the home. 

 

Water Coming from Basement Floor Ridded by WaterGuard and SuperSump

Stacy L. of Scotts, MI has a walk out basement and water is coming up through its floor. The carpet is soaked with water, but Stacy did not know how to stop the water. Thus, she gave us a call.

We installed our favorite duo of 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 drain rests below the basement floor but above the foundation footing, collecting water that seeps into the basement. Once this water is collected it is redirected to the sump pump -- the SuperSump, in this case -- to be pumped up and out of the home. 

CleanSpace Rescues Ruined Crawl Space in South Haven, MI

Tim H. of South Haven, MI had a pipe burst a couple of years ago and had 44,000 gallons of water dump into the utility room in the crawlspace. Since then, he has been trying to rid the cottage of the damp musty smell. The crawlspace has a dirt floor. He had two dehumidifiers running but nothing would get rid of the musty smell. Thus, Tim gave us a call.

We installed one of our favorite products: the CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system. CleanSpace is a 20mm thick plastic lining that completely seals off the crawl space from the outside, surrounding elements. No dirt, cold air, water, or moisture will be able to get into the crawl space with this in place. And as a cherry on top, CleanSpace is developed with anti-microbial properties that prevent mold growth -- no more musty smell for this crawl space.

Leaky Basement in South Haven, MI Remedied by TripleSump and WaterGuard

James F. of South Haven, MI was having water leak into his basement from the foundation walls. This can cause mold and mildew growth in a home, and it needed to be put to a stop. So, James gave us a call. 

We installed two of our favorite products: the TripleSafe sump pump system and the WaterGuard French drain system. We installed the TripleSafe first. 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.

We next installed the WaterGuard. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting the water that leaks in through the walls. After this water is collected, it is redirected to the sump pump -- the TripleSafe -- to be pumped up and out of the home.

Musty, MoldyCrawl Space Saved by SaniDry CX

Jake B. of Mattawan, MI has a crawl space at his home that had gotten wet in the past and reeked of a musty, moldy odor. This was causing an unpleasant and unhealthy environment for Jake and his family. So, he gave us a call.

We installed the small but mighty SaniDry CX self-draining crawl space dehumidifier. The SaniDry CX can take up 109 pints of water vapor per day without its collection tray having to be emptied -- which, really comes in handy when your crawl space is 2 feet tall and it takes a small child to fit inside. This dehumidifier has a fine filter that picks up the smallest water particles, making sure Jake's crawl space stay as dry and odorless and it can be.

Floating Foundation in Paw Paw, MI

Tony S. of Paw Paw, MI has dealt with foundation slab problems for years. The slab has been dug out under from critters and was becoming unsafe to the structure of the home. So, Tony gave us a call for a permanent solution.

We used our patented PolyLevel injection foam to remedy this issue. PolyLevel is a lightweight yet strong material that is proven to be better at raising a slab and keeping it raised than mudjacking. We start out the project by drilling small, penny-sized holes into the concrete slab to use as access points for which to inject the PolyLevel foam through. After we inject the foam and raise the slab, we refill the holes -- making this project fairly noninvasive. 

No more critters or air pockets beneath this foundation slab. 

Water Puddling in Paw Paw, MI Basement Solved

Tabitha N. of Paw Paw, MI had water seeping into her basement and puddling up to an inch. This can cause serious damage to a basement and its contents, so Tabitha reached out to us for a professional solution to her water issue.

We installed two of our favorite products: 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 drain 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. The sump pump, of course, is our very own TripleSafe. 

This dynamic duo is waterproofing magic.

 

Wet Crawl Space Encapsulated by CleanSpace in Paw Paw, MI

John H. of Paw Paw, MI was having some problems with his crawl space before he reached out to us. There was water in the crawl space and mold growing in his kitchen and bathroom because of the moisture moving up into the house. 

We installed our best system for giving crawl spaces a face lift: the CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system. CleanSpace is a 20mm thick plastic lining that completely seals off the crawl space from the surrounding elements. This means that no dirt, water, cold air, or moisture will pass through the material if we have anything to say about it. And as an added bonus, CleanSpace is developed with anti-microbial properties that prevent mold growth. 

It doesn't get any better than this.

Settled Slabs and Wet Crawl Space Now Restored in Decatur, MI

This homeowner contacted us because he was looking for a system that would fix his wet crawl space. He also wanted to address the settled sidewalk and driveway leading to his home.

In order to collect and discard unwanted water in the crawl space, we installed the SuperSump sump pump system. This system included a sturdy liner and a powerful Zoller pump to ensure the space was fully protected. An airtight lid was also included in this effective system to prevent water in the sump from evaporating into the crawl space air, which would further contribute to the high humidity and moisture levels.

Next we installed the IceGuard system on the home’s discharge line. The large holes in this system help water immediately exit the sump pump even if the pipe was frozen. IceGuard ensures frozen discharge lines will not be the reason water re-enters the home and causes a flood. A LawnScape outlet was also installed on the end of the discharge line to guide water away from the home.

To fix the settled cement slabs, we installed the PolyLevel system. Specialized polymers were injected underneath the slab through small, drilled holes. The polymers expanded to lift the slab back to its proper level.

Apartment Complex Waterproofing in Paw Paw, MI

The lower level of an apartment complex was leaking and disrupting the lives of its residents. There is a crack between the floor and wall that is allowing water to enter through. Every time it rains, it gets wet causing an enormous headache. Their space was in need of waterproofing, starting with the Waterguard and our SuperSump sump pump. Waterguard will help guide that water coming in the lower level of the building to the SuperSump sump pump for it to be pumped out.

Now that the water is being pumped out of their lower level we need somewhere for it to go. For this, we installed our Lawnscape Outlet. Discharge lines are just plain ugly to look at, Lawnscape Outlet provides the opportunity to bury those discharge lines underground with a drain outlet to discharge the water away from the area. Finally, in those cold winter months, we want to make sure that when those discharge lines freeze water does not back up into your basement. Iceguard resolves this problem for us, it allows the water to spray out in the case the lines freeze making sure the water still has a place to go.

 

Rain = Wet Basement in Paw Paw Home

Joel V. of Paw Paw, MI dealt with a wet basement after every rain before he reached out to us for help. A wet basement can cause a myriad of problems for a homeowner, including congestion and moisture in the home itself. That said, Joel needed to solve this water problem.

We installed our patented WaterGuard French drain system for this job. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting water that seeps into the basement from the walls. After this water is gathered, it is transported to the sump pump in the home to be pumped up and out of the basement.

Michigan Basement Gets a Revamp

Liji H. from South Haven, MI had to deal with the rouble that comes along with a Michigan basement for quite some time before she reached out to us. Water would spew into the basement from the walls and floor, and Liji needed a solution. 

We installed two fo us favorite waterproofing products for this job: the patented WaterGuard French drain system and the SuperSump premier sump pump system. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting all the 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. 

The SuperSump sump pump system 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.

With these two installments, Liji can be comfortable living with a crawl space. 

WaterGuard and SuperSump Installation in Beaverton, MI

Charlie Z. from Beaverton, MI had water seeping into his basement from the walls before he reached out to us. There so was much standing water in his basement at one point that he had to have the carpet pulled up. This is a serious issue. We had a solution, though.

Ayers installed two patented waterproofing products: the WaterGuard French drain system and the SuperSump premier sump pump system. the WaterGuard drain is placed below the basement floor but just on top of the foundation footing, and collects all the water that leaks into the basement from the walls. Once this water is in the drain, it is redirected to the sump pump – the SuperSump, in this case – to be pumped up and out of the home.

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.

These two installments now allow Charlie to live comfortably in his home knowing his basement is finally dry. 

 

Cracks in Basement Wall cause Standing Water in Crawl Spacei in South Haven, MI

Jerry D.’s home was built in 2001 with poured concrete walls. After an enormous rainfall he noticed three to four inches of standing water in his crawl space. This water got to his crawl space from his basement. His basement walls had cracks that were allowing water to pour through. After clearing the water out of his crawl space our team of experts used Flexi Span to seal those cracks. We know over time concrete walls begin to move causing cracks but Flexi Span is designed to move with your walls and has a secondary built in repair strategy so you don’t have to worry about leaking walls again.

Heavy Rains Cause Flooding in South Haven, MI

Due to the heavy rains in South Haven, MI homeowner Ruth R. had water coming into her basement up through the floors. The water was so bad that it had to be moped and dumped out of the basement everyday. That is too much to deal with when there is a perfect solution to the problem! 

Our professional team installed the TripleSafe sump pump to stop this unwanted water from coming in. The TripleSafe is three sump pumps in one giving you triple protection! The first sump pump removes water effectively and efficiently from your home. The second pump is more powerful and has a separate discharge line. The second pump is there for you in the rare occasions that you need it. The third pump is equipped with batteries so it is there for you if the power goes out. The TripleSafe adjusts automatically so you do not have to worry about a thing! 

Our team also installed the WaterGuard long lasting interior perimeter drainage system. WaterGuard sits on the top of the footing in the basement in order to prevent clogging caused by mud and debris. The system works by capturing water seepage from the floors and walls into its drain. Once the water is captured, it is immediately taken to the basement sump pump. The sump pump then removes the water from the home and your basement is nice and dry! 

Lawton, MI Bowing Basement Walls

This homeowner contacted us because his foundation basement wall were bowing greatly and have been continuing to get worse over the course of a few years. To fix this bowing wall problem, we decided to install our Geo-Lock wall anchor system to fully stabilize his wall and hopefully return it to its original position.

The Geo-Lock anchor system is installed by digging out the soil that is outside of your home in order to place a galvanized steel anchor into the soil. That anchor is connected to steel rods that are located on a steel plate in the basement wall, which will hold the foundation wall in place. The backfill and sod are both replaced during this installation and the anchors can be tightened over time to hopefully shift the wall back to its original position.

Tornado Damage to Bangor, MI Basement Wall

The homeowner in Bangor, MI had a concrete block wall that had moved a few inches and was starting to bow pretty badly. The home suffered some damage from a tornado and many other different circumstances. The homeowners wanted to use this house for their retirement, so something needed to be done. 

Our professional team installed PowerBraces to support the basement wall and allow for potential straightening over time. The PowerBraces patented system allows for the tightening of the wall to improve the condition of the wall over time. The beams are zinc coated making them resistant to corrosion, reduces abrasion and wear, and creates a non-toxic surface. The beams also have a very clean look to them. The PowerBrace system utilizes a joist reinforcement method which distributes the load of the home, evenly as to not damage your floor system or over bear any one part of your floor. 

Thanks to the PowerBrace system, the homeowners wall is well on its way to being fixed!

Sealing Lawton, MI Homeowner Crawl Space Vents

We've been told many times by building codes and officials that crawl spaces have to be vented, but why? Opening a hole in your crawl space allows air. Vents let in hot air in the summer, cold air in the winter and they can let water in too. This air can cause your utility bills to be more expensive than they need to be and that moisture can cause mold and no one wants that. 

We offer crawl space vent covers that work great to solve all of these issues. Our vents permanently seal the openings so no unwanted outside elements get into your crawl space. They come in black, gray and red to match almost any home.

Uneven Concrete in Bangor, MI Garage

The customer’s home used to be a garage but then had several add-ons. The home was placed on three separate concrete slabs, some of which were beginning to sink. It seemed that the water from the yard was washing out the soil underneath the concrete slab, which was causing the bad settling issue.

We started by removing the carpeting in the rooms in order the install the PolyLevel system. This system worked to raise and level out the concrete slabs while dealing with the weak soils below that were no longer able to hold the weight of the home above. We drilled multiple small holes into the concrete slabs in order to inject them with a polymer material that expanded to lift and level out the concrete. Once injected, the system only needed about 15 minutes to fully cure and the slabs were then stabilized and lifted to their proper level, and stronger than ever before. Now, this homeowner will not have to worry about this ever again.
