Positioned along the Kalamazoo River, Kalamazoo, MI is home to around 75,000. Like the rest of Michigan, the city is known for heavy precipitation in the form of snow in the winter and rain in the summer. Ayers Basement Systems can help homeowners in Kalamazoo overcome the negative effects of this much water because some of it may eventually end up in their basements. In business since 1981, we have the basement waterproofing solutions to restore your basement to a dry, safe area in your home.

Signs of a basement water problem

  • Wet or damp basement floor or standing water
  • Leaking or damp basement walls or windows
  • Crystalline deposits on concrete surfaces
  • Musty odors, condensation, and humidity

High-quality foundation repair in Kalamazoo, MI

Foundation repair in Kalamazoo, MI

This stair-step crack in a Kalamazoo property indicates foundation settlement.

As a homeowner, foundation issues like small cracks in exterior walls or sticking windows and doors may not seem like that big of a deal. But over time, your foundation will only continue to settle, exaggerating the unsightly and hazardous cracks around your property and potentially leading to issues like bowing walls, detaching chimneys, and sagging floors. Additionally, no one wants to buy a home with a faulty foundation. Unless you're sure you'll be in your current home forever, you will need to repair it.

Save time and money by acting sooner rather than later. Ayers Basement Systems specializes in a wide variety of foundation repair products and solutions for local homes. Some examples include foundation pier systems, wall anchors, wall braces, and many more. Our fully trained and professional technicians will choose the best solution for your home and explain the entire process to you. As a trusted Foundation Supportworks dealer, all of these products are proven and fully warrantied.

You'll be rewarded with a return on your investment and peace of mind in your home when you work with Ayers Basement Systems for your foundation repair or basement waterproofing needs. Contact us today to schedule a free estimate in Kalamazoo, MI or areas nearby!

CleanSpace Insulates Kalamazoo, MI Crawl Space

David and Marie's Kalamazoo, MI home was built in 1912 with a crawl space built in the 40s. The crawl space was filthy and made the floors freezing during the winter. Our crew came out for n inspection and determined that David and Marie would need us to install drainage matting and CleanSpace Wall System. 

Drainage matting is a liner for the crawl space that is placed underneath the CleanSpace plastic liner. If the crawlspace ever floods, the dimpled mat allows water to pass underneath to the drain and sump pump. 

CleanSpace Wall System is a moisture barrier that uses a thick plastic liner along basement and 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 the home. 

David and Marie were thrilled with Ayers and the work our crew did. They are so excited to be able to have warm and cozy feet in the winter, especially during this cold week.

PolyLevel Raises Back Porch in Kalamazoo Home Sale

Our customer called having recently sold his home and needing to fix one glaring issue - the back porch. The porch had sunk about 1 1/2 inches, which was evident in the gap it left between the siding and concrete. He needed the repair to be completed before they closed on the house at the end of April, and we luckily could oblige.

Using the PolyLevel injection system, we were able to raise the porch all the way back to its original position, eliminating the unsightly gap as well as the high step up into the house.

After recent rain storms we have had water coming up through the basement floor. We do not have a sump pump or any sort of perimeter drain that I'm aware of. We do have gutters, but in heavy rain they are not very effective at getting the water away from the house. I'm hoping to see what options we have for mitigating this issue. Thanks! Kody
