How to Choose a Michigan Basement Waterproofer You Can Trust
Wet basements are not fun! Flooded basements are a homeowner’s nightmare. If you are suffering from constant worry about the health and safety of your basement, it’s time for a change. If you’ve tried DIY efforts to fix pooling water, cracks in your foundation, leaky basement windows, or high humidity, it’s time to find an experienced, professional waterproofer you can trust. A wet basement wastes valuable living space, damages building materials and stored possessions, pollutes the indoor air, risks the health of those living in the home, and puts your investment in your home at risk. That adds up to considerable risk.
Look for expertise, training, and experience.
When you choose a basement contractor in the Basement Systems network, you get a local company trained in and committed to the best waterproofing practices. Each contractor listed here is an expert in the diagnosis of sub-grade moisture problems as well as the design and installation of proper drainage, moisture and humidity control, and basement materials. Say good-bye to your wet basement with the best basement waterproofing in your neighborhood!
These top Michigan contractors have exclusive access to Basement Systems’ award-winning waterproofing products. Basement Systems’ products have set the standard for dry basements since 1987. With access to 27 patented Basement Systems products, your local Basement Systems dealer can tailor the right solution to address your specific basement or crawl space problem. With solutions like the WaterGuard basement drainage system and the UltraSump industrial-strength sump pump, your basement can be ready for the next big rainstorm.
Michigan’s significant water resources - over 26,000 inland lakes and 120 major rivers, many of which flow into the surrounding Great Lakes – contribute to the risk of flooding when snow melt and saturated soils coincide with spring rains (source: Michigan State University). Beyond the record-breaking flash floods like the 1975 spring flooding in Lansing, recent flooding such as the Grand Rapids River in 2013 and the Detroit River in 2014, put personal safety and homes at risk. These extreme events are less common, but you don’t have to experience a major flood event to be anxious about your basement.
Whether your home is in Muskegon, Marquette, Lansing, or Dearborn, a short heavy rainfall when the sump pump goes on the blitz can damage your basement. Water from the soils surrounding your home can seep through basement walls. Cracks in the foundation, rusty windows, a clogged sump pump, or deteriorating exterior drainage system can contribute to structural damage in your basement.
If your basement is a true “Michigan basement,” it likely has a dirt floor and rock walls. Created out of former crawl spaces by expanding downward and digging to a depth of 5 to 7 feet, Michigan basements offer greater storage and usability (State of Michigan glossary). However, they are also more challenging to keep dry, given the moisture-laden soil, especially if there are no installed vapor barriers. The same techniques and products your local Basement Systems contractor uses to encapsulate and dry out a crawl space is useful in a Michigan basement.

Robert W. of Fenton, MI
This note comes with great appreciation for the quality work done on my damp and wet basement of 30 years. The three men that did the work deserve a round of applause!! I have hired a lot of contractors, but these 3 were the very best workers that I have ever seen! They worked constantly from when they arrived until the job was over 2 1/2 days later. The basement remains completely dry and warm. It is nice to go down there and look around occasionally because it is a job very well done. I would like to thank Paulson's Construction for recommending Ayers Basement Systems. Mr. Ayers priced out the job and it was exactly as he quoted. This is the kind of firm that I would highly recommend. Thanks again and continue to do good work.
The ain reason we chose Ayers Basement Systems was the knowledgeable sales rep and availalbe financing.
The installation crew was very polite, informative and courteous. They did a great job and the cleanup was satisfactory.
