What Causes Moisture in Your Basement?
It's easy to spot water leaking through a crack in your basement, but most homeowners don't know that there is a potential for water issues without heavy rains or obvious signs of standing water. At Healthy Way, we try to educate our clients on the real causes of water in your basement. Here are two of the most common reasons why you might need basement waterproofing in Allenhurst:
The "Clay Bowl" Effect
It might not be evident on the surface, but many basements are built in a below-grade dip, which is surrounded by backfill. Because backfill is made up of soil that was removed during foundation digging, it creates an empty shape or "bowl" effect. Once the foundation is finished, this loose soil is placed back around the foundation. Unfortunately, soil of this consistency is more absorbent and porous than the undisturbed soil around it, which is hard-packed and less porous. When rain or thunderstorms occurs, the soil closest to your home becomes saturated, putting pressure on your basement walls.
This kind of pressure affects homeowners with property built below the water table or on a hillside where water runs down a hill. When the soil around your foundation becomes saturated, it will expand and put intense pressure on the walls of your foundation and basement. This pressure can create cracks, giving water an easy route into your basement.
How Healthy Way Solves Your Basement Waterproofing Needs
Having a wet basement not only puts your health at risk, it lowers the value of your home and makes it more difficult to sell. The good news? We offer a number of waterproofing services and products to solve your problems fast. A few of our solutions include:
- Sump pumps
- Perimeter drainage systems
- Doorway drainage systems
- High-strength washer hoses
- Floor and wall crack repair

When you use Healthy Way for basement waterproofing in New Jersey, you can rest easy knowing that all our systems come with a written, lifetime warranty. This warranty is transferrable, meaning you can re-establish your home's value and give future owners confidence knowing that their new home is protected.
The Healthy Way Basement Waterproofing Process
Because every home is different, your basement waterproofing solution could be vastly different than that of your next-door neighbor. Many factors play a part when it comes to keeping your basement dry and safe for living. As a general rule, we approach each issue with a "prevention over repair" mindset. By taking this stance, we give our clients a more cost-effective, long-term resolution. We're not in the business of putting a "Band-Aid" on your water problem - we want to fix your issue completely, so you don't have to worry about recurring problems. Our effective basement waterproofing systems include a mix of the following strategies:
Interior waterproofing methods usually start with our team ensuring that any holes or cracks in your basement floors, walls, and windows are sealed properly. Sealing cracks in your basement is an important first step since this is usually the first place where water can enter your home. Our sealants keep your basement dry and help prevent more moisture from finding its way into your home. Interior waterproofing strategies like these also help lower humidity levels in your basement. While sealants and other interior waterproofing strategies help correct initial issues, they don't usually solve the underlying problem causing leaks in your basement. Those issues are most often found outside your home.
Once our team is finished with your interior waterproofing, we will move to the exterior of your home. Waterproofing the outside of your home is often a more complex, nuanced goal. Because of the difficult nature of exterior waterproofing, we recommend you consult with our team of professionals before tackling the job on your own. Generally speaking, our team beings the outdoor waterproofing process by excavating the soil around your home's foundation. Once we remove the soil surrounding your foundation, our experts will apply a polymer-based sealant to any cracks we discover. This sealant is a long-term solution and should remain intact for the life of your home. While the Healthy Way team solves your outdoor moisture problems, we will also check your downspouts, to make sure they aren't clogged. An inefficient gutter system does a poor job of directing water away from your home's foundation, which can cause more moisture to seep into your basement over time.
One of the most common reasons that people need basement waterproofing in cityname is because they have a poor drainage system. A proper drainage system is paramount in keeping your basement dry and your family safe. These systems are meant to direct water away from your home and come in many forms, from French Drains to simple systems like ground soil. If you're thinking of installing a complex drainage system, save yourself some time and check the soil around your foundation first to make sure it isn't retaining moisture. If a more complex system like a sump pump is required, it's best to work with certified professionals like those at Healthy Way, to make sure your drainage system is installed correctly.
WHICH WATERPROOFING SOLUTION IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Because every home is different, it's hard to say what kind of waterproofing solution is right for your situation. Most homeowners require a combination of interior and exterior waterproofing. There are dozens of factors that come into play when it comes to waterproofing your home, so the answer to your problem may be different than your neighbor's. The good news is that Healthy Way is fully equipped to handle whatever moisture issue you're having. We will work tirelessly to make certain your basement is dry, mold-free, and safe to enjoy. That way, you can get back to living life rather than worrying about mold growth or foundation damage.Contact Us

Home sales have declined every month in 2022, and home-price appreciation continues to show signs of retreating rapidly, according to a new report.
It’s a well-known fact that New Jersey is one of the most expensive places to live in the country. Especially when it comes to housing. So much so, that when ATTOM, a real estate data analysis company did a study back in June about which housing markets in the country were most “vulnerable” to a marked downturn, many of NJ's 21 counties appeared on the list. Vulnerability is measured by home ownership costs like mortgage payments, property taxes and insurance against how much money a homeowner actually earns.
In New Jersey, property taxes are enough to put most of us over the line in terms of housing affordability.
In fact, According to an article by Patrick Lavery on New Jersey 1015.com, six New Jersey counties appeared on a top ten most vulnerable list — and when that list was expanded to include the top 50, five more NJ counties made the cut.
While not surprising, it’s still striking to read that In terms of the percentage of monthly income it takes someone to buy property, percentage of underwater loans — (where more is still due than the property is worth) foreclosure and unemployment rates, we have so many counties that are at risk of a massive topple.
Further, the nation's three most vulnerable housing markets are in New Jersey, according to the report. Passaic, Essex and Atlantic counties top the rankings, in that order, based on the above data points.
In the study, ATTOM measured local wages against the expenses for median-priced, single-family homes in their respective areas for the first quarter of the year.
Here’s how our worst three counties ranked according to that data. And remember — this is as compared to other counties in the entire 50 states.
San Joaquin County, California: 48.9 percent of average local wages needed for major homeownership costs
Bergen County: 48.3 percent
Solano County, California: 46.6 percent
Passaic County: 46.5 percent
Ocean County: 42.5 percent
To our that into perspective, nationwide, the average was 26.3 percent of local wages.
Are we heading for a tremendous fall? No one knows. But this data seems to support the idea that if it’s going to happen anywhere in the country, we are probably going to be one of the first in the line of dominoes waiting to fall.

If this change in government were such a good idea, why do they have to lie to defend it?
It should mean something to you that the people behind changing our government continually deceive you. Their FIRST INSTINCT is to lie, to mislead the public. That’s scary - and not up to the standards of our community.
So, once again, the Charter Study Commissioners and their advocates are trying to deceive you. Their latest lie? Using national statistics from a biased organization to trick you into thinking their proposed form of government is widely used in New Jersey and is better for Holmdel.
Don’t be fooled! As always, they forgot to mention a few things. So, let me fill in the blanks for you:
1) The ICMA is the “International City/County Management Association”. They are an advocacy group for professional city managers. Their goal is to “actively promote the council-manager form [of government] as the preferred structure.”
I wonder why they didn’t disclose that to you?
ICMA research is highly biased. As an advocacy group, they are not an independent source - it's important to me you know that.
2) They don’t want to tell you about New Jersey statistics because the facts do not support their recommendations. In fact, they don’t even have data for New Jersey! That’s why they’re posting their very first statistics two months after they published their “study.” They didn’t do any research. But we did.
And that’s why we are happy to remind you of the truth regarding just how unpopular the Council-Manager form of government is in New Jersey:
3) NO Monmouth County towns like Holmdel have a “Council-Manager” form of government. Not Colts Neck, not Fair Haven, not Little Silver, not Millstone. Not one. Why don’t they want you to know that?
4) No “affluent” Monmouth County communities use a “Council-Manager” form. Not Rumson, not Sea Girt, not Spring Lake, not Allenhurst, not Deal, not Avon by the Sea. Not one. Again, why don’t they want you to know that?
We care about New Jersey. We care about Monmouth County. And most importantly, we care about the quality of our lives and the quality of our government right here in Holmdel. Why are they talking about what cities in other states are doing?
Here are some even more worrisome facts for you to remember before you vote:
If this change in government were such a good idea, why not just tell the truth?
Regardless of the outcome, I will do everything I can to support and defend our community.
But, we need to put an end to the lies and the deceit. The data, the FACTS prove this is wrong for Holmdel. Please, make your voice heard. Get out and vote NO on 7/26!

As the weather here in New Jersey gets warmer and thoughts of summer are dancing in our heads, I like to gear up and get ready to enjoy my favorite seaside restaurants and bars.
One of my favorites is Mister C’s Beach Bistro in Allenhurst, NJ. The restaurant has a slight overhang over the beach capturing the beauty of the ocean and a clean beach.
The restaurant boasts one of the most magnificent views on the Jersey Shore. I feel that I’m at an upscale beach club without having to pay the monthly dues.
I so enjoy the dining, cocktails and atmosphere of Mister C’s Beach Bistro – Bar in Allenhurst. The restaurant was built in 1931 to look like the outer shell of an ocean liner. The restaurant boasts one of the most magnificent views on the Jersey Shore. I feel that I’m at an upscale beach club without having to pay the monthly dues.
The restaurant is well appointed, the staff and food are on point and you truly feel that you’re on vacation when you enter Mister C’s. Owners Karen Marzulli and Chic Perrotto (Mister C himself) have been partners for close to 30 years.
The success of Mister C’s began in 1991 in Deal; they then moved and opened their current restaurant in Allenhurst in 2006. Karen and Mister C worked hard in refurbishing and rebuilding the restaurant after Hurricane Sandy did some devastating damage. They did a wonderful job.
The restaurant is expansive and also is a great location for small private parties. You have to check out the deck and the view; it’s awesome, so much so, I used the deck to include my picture for the cover of this book.
I enjoy the selection of food and cocktails at Mister C’s. My favorites are the tuna tartar, the Ahi Tuna Nachos and calamari/shrimp with Tai chili glaze. All of these are very good. Chef Tony Ibanez spent time at Le Cirque in New York and continues to put together some great dishes with the Jersey Shore flair and feel. He put a meatball on the appetizer menu and I have to tell you it rivals some of the best Italian restaurants.
Chef Tony has prepared for this cookbook a Coast to Coast Crab Cake. Chef spent some time in California and now lives here in New Jersey and has infused a little bit of both coasts in making this delicious recipe.
Mister C’s has claim to an award winning mixologist in Kevin Harvey. He is awesome and knows his cocktails; in fact Kevin was selected as our guest bartender for this cookbook. I’m happy we can include him.
You have to try his amazing drinks while checking out the amazing view and enjoying great dishes from the extensive menu. Mister C’s does it right, make it a part of your dining destination, you’ll be very glad that you did, I certainly am.
Mister C’s Coast to Coast Crab Cakes
Half duchess crab / half lump crab
3 oz of crushed Ritz crackers
2oz of chopped celery
3 dabs of Hot Sauce ( I like cholula)
a teaspoon of Dijon mustard
a teaspoon of lemon aioli ( Lemon juice and mayo)
Directions:Put all ingredients in a large Mixing bowl. Mix ingredients gently. Make a 3 oz ball with the ingredients and place it into the crushed Ritz crackers covering the crab meat. Cook for a few minutes. Goes great over a salad ! Serves two !

The fact that we are even having this debate is a sign of the surreal times we live in. It's also a glaring reminder that the Democratic majority in New Jersey has betrayed the principles that have had voters keep them in power for the past two decades.
As we approach the fall election on Nov. 8, there is a growing feeling that change is coming.
As I have been saying since the 2021 election, the change necessary to bring New Jersey back to normal starts at the local level.
Local elections matter. And local people are rising to the challenge.
As we head into the new school year, more and more school boards are stepping up to challenge the outrageous, graphic, and inappropriate curriculum that sexualizes kids in grade school.
In Watchung, although the curriculum itself passed, thanks to the courage of one school board member, Amber Murad, the radicals were locked from including it in the social studies classes where parents would not even have the option of "opting out".
Amber is running for County Commissioner and is one of the best candidates I've met in New Jersey. Strong, confident, and capable. Exactly what we need in towns and counties throughout the state.
Check out our conversation here:
If your school district is fighting back let us know by filling out a form HERE.
If you want to join the fight for normal and protect kids across New Jersey from this predatory behavior being pushed by radicals, join me and become a Citizen Signer on our "Parental Bill of Rights".

Inside a grand house of worship for Armenian diaspora at the Shore | Faith Matters

Ocean Avenue from the West End of Long Branch through Elberon and into Deal to Allenhurst can be considered the mansion mile. There are large, magnificent, often modern, homes. But none is as exquisite as St. Stepanos Armenian Church, which has housed a diaspora of Orthodox Armenians for 35 years.
A famous New Jersey Armenian developer, Kevork Hovnanian, built it, covered the costs and established a property endowment fund in memory of his mother, Yester. A bas relief of her graces the narthex of the building along with a bust of Kevork. And he deserves it. The structure is self-contained with not only the beautiful church but offices, meeting rooms, a Sunday school, a large dining room and a commercial kitchen.
Its architecture is worth noting and is detailed on the church’s website. The architect, Ramon H. Hovsepian of Worcester, Massachusetts, used a brown, manmade stone that resembles tufa, a volcanic rock indigenous to Armenia. The trim on the exterior is copper with a slate roof. The pyramid-shaped dome rests on a 12-sided, drum-shaped structure of the nave symbolizing the 12 apostles. Made of gold anodized aluminum, it reaches 65 feet into the air.
There is a dark hue over the narthex and halls, which contrasts with the colorful nave and sanctuary dotted with icons and the rest of the spaces where people gather to learn, socialize and do good works.
What happens inside is what makes the pastor, the Rev. Daniel Karadjian, 64, glow.
“Our traditions are based upon vibrant worship services,” he said, “outreach ministries that have uplifted those who have found themselves among the least, the last and the lost.”
The church has six permanent deacons assisting the pastor. The Sunday divine liturgy runs 90 minutes to two hours in Armenian with Scripture readings also read in English.
Pre-COVID, about 55 people attended services on a regular basis, excluding the special feasts. Now about 30 do so, but the church continues to livestream the service and senior citizens tune in, adding some 50 more people. Religion classes run the same time as the service and the church offers Armenian language classes for children.
Karadjian has noticed that more young families with three and even four children are attending.
In all, 350 families are registered at the church with worshipers traveling from as far as Toms River and Bridgewater. The Long Branch church is the only Armenian church in the Shore area with others in Livingston, Fair Lawn and Tenafly. Hudson County’s Holy Cross is in Union City.
Deacon Chris Kesici, 43, of St. Stepanos said that most Armenians “live in diaspora” outside of Armenia after the Turkish genocide during World War I. Some 3 million remain in Armenia while most moved to the Middle East, Syria, Egypt and South America, among other places. He noted that many came to the United States for a better chance at jobs and some travel more than an hour to go to St. Stepanos.
In the pastor, they find a personable family man – he’s married with two sons – who bridges the spiritual with the social. Before entering the seminary in Jerusalem in 1991 at the age of 33, he was a drummer in a jazz band in Bulgaria, where he grew up. His church now hosts picnics, parties and socials, but he is most proud of their bake sales of Armenian delicacies at the holidays. Choreg is an Armenian bread and shekerbura and gata are Armenian versions of baklava.
Karadjian spent years as a priest in the Holy Land in historic churches such as the Holy Sepulchre and found it fascinating. Once he came to the States, he served in North Carolina and the Binghamton and Syracuse areas in upstate New York before coming to Long Branch in 2013 as St. Stepanos’ eighth pastor.
The first church on the spot was a converted mansion called St. Mary, built in 1957 and razed for the new one.
St. Stepanos is named for St. Stephen, the first declared Christian martyr and also the first deacon. They mark his feast day, Dec. 25, while their Christmas is celebrated on Jan. 6, also the feast of the Epiphany. A beautiful stained-glass window of St. Stephen is located above the sanctuary doors of the church reminding the parishioners that their painful past as Armenians has given them new life all around the world.
