Basement Waterproofing in Avon-by-the-Sea

Healthy Way has been providing the most trusted, effective basement waterproofing in New Jersey since 2007. Waterproofing your basement is crucial to protecting the value of your home and the safety of your family. That is why we only employ the best, brightest, fully-certified experts, who will treat your home like it was their very own. Taking shortcuts just isn’t in our nature. We use innovative technology and time-tested techniques to discover and solve your basement’s water-related problems.

Because basement wall leaks and water seepage are often caused by structural issues, external waterproofing is required. While some companies only seal the interior walls of your basement, Healthy Way goes the extra mile to fix your water issues inside and out. That way, your basement leaks stop for good.

Once we find the root of the water issues in your basement, we will get to work on a custom-designed solution that will exceed your basement waterproofing needs.

Our basement waterproofing services in New Jersey help prevent the following problems:

  • Mold growth, which can cause serious health hazards for your family
  • Basement flooding
  • Loss of valuables
  • Serious water damage to your home’s walls and floors
  • Decrease in home value

Don’t wait to address the moisture developing in your basement – call Healthy Way today for a customized solution to your water seepage problems.

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 Avon-by-the-Sea:

Clay Bowl Effect

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.

Hydrostatic Pressure

Hydrostatic Pressure:

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
  • Replacement windows
  • Flood protection for your water heater

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

Interior Waterproofing

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.

Exterior Waterproofing

Exterior Waterproofing

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.

Exterior Waterproofing

Drainage Systems

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.

U! S! A!

We are just days away from the 4th of July holiday weekend which means...get ready to hear those loud firework booms all....weekend....long.....

But maybe you are looking to enjoy the holiday and its typical traditions, but really can\'t handle the loud noises that come with fireworks. (There are more people who this description applies to than you would think)

Listen to Nicole Murray middays on 94.3 The Point and download our free 94.3 The Point app.

What are your thoughts on a laser show that gives you the benefits of exciting visuals without the loud noises??

Well you can experience just that at Novins Planetarium located at the Ocean County College. The official address is 1 College Drive in Toms River.

Coming up at 7:00 PM on Friday, July 2nd and 2:00 PM on Saturday, July 3rd (yes, this weekend) they will be hosting their annual Laser Spirit: A Patriotic Laser Experience Show.

This show takes place in the planetarium itself -- which I\'ve seen. Picture a bunch of comfortable, movie theatre-like seats with a large dome over them all.

You lay back and enjoy a show filled with lasers and digital fireworks that will also be mixed with various types of music including: classic rock, adult contemporary and patriotic music!

Here is what is listed in the description on their website:

"This program is accompanied with stirring laser effects and beautiful background artwork and images that all come together to produce an uplifting and inspirational experience. Visitors of all ages will enjoy this fun and unique laser presentation!"

There are plenty of people who are sensitive to loud noises and I really do think that this alternative is a perfect compromise!

If you would like a better idea of what this experience will look like, CLICK HERE.

Just a warning, I was able to get in touch with Cara Muscio, the manager of the Novins Planetarium, who did want to make sure people know this show will be a tad different this year.

"Our Tech, Kevin created a fireworks finale with the 1812 overture for this year – so it might be a little louder at the end with the cannon blasts," explained Muscio. "But it’s still a great alternative to live fireworks if folks are looking for that."

If you don\'t have a chance to get out to the planetarium this holiday weekend, take a look at their calendar because there are plenty of other events.

Some of the most eye-catching include their Christmas Eve Celebration in July and Laser RocketMan featuring an entire night dedicated to Elton John\'s music!

Take a look at everything at Novin Planetarium\'s Website. Thanks Cara!

The Maravines may call the decidedly unbeachy town of Union City home, but the indie-rock duo loves the Jersey Shore.

The team of Evan Pope and Chris Lee titled their 2018 album “Belmar” and followed it with their latest, “Avon-By-The-Sea.”

Pope and Lee take turns on lead vocals, switch instruments and share songwriting, production and mixing duties on “Avon-By-The-Sea,” which sailed under the radar following its release in early May by NJ’s Mint 400 Records.

Don’t let the title fool you, though. This is no summery beach blanket bingo pop fest.

The Maravines formed in 2010 and this is their eighth album (not counting a 2019 covers collection) of moody, harmony-laden threnodies, sad or contemplative or sullen songs played at slow tempos. While some of the titles here suggest a nautical theme (“Anemone,” “Beneath the Seas,” “Pearl”), a closer examination reveals that for the Maravines, the ocean is more metaphor than vacation spot.

Poetry flows from the Maravines; it is part of who they are.

“And I wonder if this virgin air’s safe to hold this savage prayer?/ Get it started then, I was told you’d never love me/ I’ve been sleeping in the Sun’s maze, sifting through the soft haze,” Lee sings on “Anemone.”

Play your old Beach Boys records to soundtrack that joyous ride to the shore this summer. But once you’re there, at dawn or twilight, lost in thought, that’s when it’s time for the Maravines.

“Avon-By-The-Sea” is available from themaravines.bandcamp.com and on all major streaming services.

COMMONS 2

John Gallagher released his excellent first solo album, “Silent Under the Grove,” as Commons almost exactly year ago, but changed the name to Commons 2 due to a trademark dispute. He had hoped to form a full band and tour behind that excellent work; when the pandemic made that impossible, he honed his skills as a one-man band and floated several promising singles this past spring.

Now he’s self-releasing “Suburban Lifestyle Dream,” Commons 2′s sophomore album.

“It’s still all me but I feel like this one sounds a lot more like a full band. I definitely learned quite a few things since starting on my first album last year,” Gallagher reported. “I was hoping I could wait long enough to get a live show ready ... but I honestly feel I have more than enough new material (and not enough band members) to just release this album and get the music out.”

Fans will be glad he did.

The new album eschews the snarky hipster vibe of much of the debut for sinewy, sincere songs that hew to textures and tempos from indie-rock’s pantheon: Lou Reed, Dinosaur Jr., Pavement.

The album opens with “Picture Yourself,” a post-COVID song about grounding yourself in tough times, with the message that we’ll all get through even the toughest times. Like much of the album, the track proceeds at a modest pace, with a swelling harmonic chorus.

Guitarrs and keyboards intertwine to create a lush and comforting bed of sound. It certainly doesn’t sound like one person recording in a home studio!

Other highlights include “Three Strings,” with its spoken-sung verse and catchy chorus, the romantic and supportive “Number One,” the synth-heavy “Hands” with its sweet falsetto vocal, and the grunge-lite of “(Midnight) Gospel,” with churning distorted guitars under a melodic vocal.

The uptempo, Lou-Reed-y “Don’t Think I Wouldn’t” could have been a song your favorite indie band played at Maxwell’s on a Saturday night back in the ‘80s.

Commons 2′s “Suburban Lifestyle Dream” will be released on Friday, June 25 at listentothecommons.bandcamp.com.

NEW & NOTED

Sadly, Weehawken’s The Skullers didn’t survive the pandemic, but frontman Jack Skuller (who released his solo debut at age 13) continues unabashed with “Anyhow,” his new single with the hopeful message: “There ain’t nothin’ to do now, we will get to where we’re goin’ anyhow.”

Inspired by a near-fatal car accident while on tour, the song eschews the blues and rockabilly vibe of the Skullers for a charged indie-rock sound, with Jack’s warm, engaging vocal over a catchy refrain.

Expect more when Jack releases his new EP on Aug. 6.

“Anyhow” is available from jackskuller.bandcamp.com.

***

Not to be outdone, Jack’s dad Eddie Skuller has a new single, too.

After releasing several reggae tracks recorded with legendary Jersey producer Jim the Boss, Eddie has recorded a cover of Madonna’s “Music” that’s now streaming on all major platforms.

Eddie and Jim the Boss replace the thumping disco bass of the original with a sinuous reggae beat underscored by a peppery horn section. Eddie’s supple voice embraces Madonna’s feel-good lyrics, making it a perfect summer single.

It’s streaming on all major platforms.

FREEHOLD, NJ – An innovative program that expresses the connectivity between Monmouth County and the relationship with its government was on display recently. According to news released by the county, top officials were involved in a county wide poster contest. Monmouth County’s Constitutional Officers, County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon, Surrogate Rosemarie D. Peters, and Sheriff Shaun Golden honored the First, Second, and Third Place Winners of the Annual ‘My County’ Poster Contest at the Monmouth County Board of County Commissioners Meeting on June 24.

First Place winner, Mackenzie Miller of St. Leo the Great (L to R) Sheriff Shaun Golden, Surrogate Rosemarie Peters, County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon, Mackenzie Miller, sister Madison Miller, and parents Maureen & Doug Miller

All fourth grade students in Monmouth County were invited to create posters depicting unique aspects of Monmouth County and how they relate to County Government. The Constitutional Officers selected this year’s winners from a record-breaking number of entries, more than 200 entries submitted by schools from across the County.

The first place winner is Mackenzie Miller of St. Leo the Great in Lincroft whose poster creatively outlined Monmouth County’s geography and utilized window flaps to showcase some of the County’s most popular destinations and historic sites.

Avalina Paul of St. Leo the Great in Lincroft took second place for her vibrant and colorful poster illustrating all that Monmouth County has to offer, including its schools, parks, and open space.

Third Place winner, Luke Farina of St. Jerome School in West Long Branch highlighted Monmouth County’s scenic beaches and historic Sandy Hook lighthouse, while showcasing some of our popular summer activities.

Those who received honorable mention include: Peyton B. Afanador of Avon Elementary School in Avon-by-the-Sea; Robbie Krol, III of Indian Hill Elementary School in Holmdel; Madison Manners of West Freehold School in Freehold; Alyssa Marchitello of Swimming River School in Tinton Falls; Charley Piscopo of St. Benedict School in Holmdel; and Joan Marie Casey, Hunter Domanski, Luke Ellis, and Olivia Sidoti of St. Leo the Great in Lincroft.

“The fourth graders’ posters showed not only knowledge of county government, but also imagination and originality,” said Clerk Hanlon. “I congratulate all the students who participated in the contest, especially this year’s winners.”

“After learning about the State of New Jersey in their classroom social studies curriculum, fourth graders from Monmouth County were able to demonstrate their knowledge of county government in a creative way through this poster contest,” said Surrogate Peters. “We were so glad to receive a record-breaking number of contest entries this year.”

“A project like this helps students learn more about the great County we are all so fortunate to call home,” said Sheriff Golden. “I commend all of these fourth grade participants as they continue to impress us each year with their knowledge of Monmouth County and tremendous ability to use their artistic talents to create eye-catching posters.”

Each of the winning posters will be displayed for a period of one month over the coming year at the Monmouth County Clerk’s Office, located at 33 Mechanic St. in Freehold.

The 2021 ‘My County’ Poster Contest ran from March 31 to April 30 and is hosted annually by Monmouth County’s Constitutional Officers during the month of April to commemorate County Government Month.
