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.

SilverGlo and CleanSpace Take on Mold in Kalamazoo, MI

As you can see in the before photo, this Kalamazoo, MI crawl space had definitely seen better days. So much moisture was leaking in, it was causing the wood foundation to rot. And only making matters worse is the fact that moisture and organic material – like wood – are two of the prime ingredients for mold growth. To put a stop to the moisture leaks and give the crawl space some much-needed protection from mold, the crew installed our Energy Savings Package.

The package comes with two products perfect for the fight against mold and moisture: CleanSpace Vapor Barrier and SilverGlo Wall insulation. Our CleanSpace Vapor barrier is exactly what the name implies, a plastic liner that won’t permit entry to moisture or water vapor. The liner is not only impenetrable to moisture, it’s also made of inorganic material, meaning mold can’t grow on it. While CleanSpace protects the crawl space floor, SilverGlo Wall insulation will keep out any moisture that tries to enter through the walls. The panels were attached in front of the previous block walls and will also help regulate temperatures throughout the home. This crawl space can now say goodbye to mold and moisture for good.

Project Location: Kalamazoo, MI
I have a room located on the first floor (of a bi-level house built in 1968). The room has two original single-hung windows. The room was never designated a bedroom in '68 (Comstock Township / KABA). I am considering legally designating the room as a bedroom. KABA identified that an Egress Window must replace one of the two windows in the room. The two windows are approx. 38"W x 34"H windows. The bottom of both windows are approx. 48" from the floor. The bottom of the outside sills of both windows sit above ground by less than 1/2". The KABA inspector suggested I will need 3"-4" cut out of the bottom of one of the windows, possibly a small 3" deep well outside of the egress window (as currently the earth outside of the windows is primarily landscaping rock below the sill), and an egress window installed - to make the room a legal bedroom.
