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.

(AVON-BY-THE-SEA, NJ) -- A swingin’ nice and easy special event, featuring the music of Frank Sinatra, is being presented by producer Karen Morris of Sand Castle Communications on Sunday, May 1, 2022, beginning promptly at 12:30pm until 3:00pm, at The Avon Marina Building, 2 Main Street, Avon-By-The-Sea. The theme of the event is Nice 'n’ Easy, which is also the title of a 1960 album and song made popular by Frank Sinatra.

There will be a mix of live entertainment, a tasty buffet lunch and an informative, easygoing chat by two notable Frank Sinatra scholars, Charles “Chuck” Granata and Dana Polan. All happening alongside a delightful picturesque view of the marina.

This is the third event, in a special series produced by Ms. Morris, where Mr. Granata and Mr. Polan together have shared their fascinating insights and personal stories about Mr. Sinatra.

Charles L. “Chuck” Granata, a leading expert on Frank Sinatra, is a writer, record producer, music historian and archivist. Mr. Granata is the author of 4 books, including the award-winning book Sessions with Sinatra: Frank Sinatra and the Art of Recording, which has been identified as one of the most important studies of Sinatra the recording artist. He is also the producer of Nancy Sinatra’s weekly radio program “Nancy for Frank” on Sirius-XM radio.

Dana Polan is Professor of Cinema Studies at New York University. He has taught about Frank Sinatra at NYU and has lectured about him at Ohio State University and Notre Dame. He is the author of 10 books in film and media, including Dreams of Flight, The Great Escape in American Film and Culture, The Lego Movie, The Sopranos, and Scenes of Instruction: The Beginnings of the U.S. Study of Film. He is the former President of the Society for Cinema Studies, and in 2003 was selected as one of that year’s Academy Foundation Scholars by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

The Nice and Easy afternoon event also includes a performance by Jazz vocalist Zack Alexander, who specializes in the style of Frank Sinatra and The Rat Pack. As the winner of the 2016 ‘Sinatra Idol’ competition in Hoboken, he is dedicated to bringing the Great American Songbook to life for current and future generations. Zack performs throughout the Tri-State area at a variety of venues, as well as with the 20-piece Swingtime Big Band ensemble, which Newsday hailed as “Long Island's leading professional big band...dedicated to the Great American Songbook.”

Event guests will have the option to sit outdoors as well as indoors, and listen to the music and discussion.

Free parking is available at 2 Main Street, Avon-By-The-Sea, NJ or if lot is filled, free parking at 43 Main Street, Avon-By-The-Sea, NJ.

Advance tickets are required to attend. Tickets will go on sale on April 2nd, 2022. A code number will be required to enter the ticket site to purchase. For more info, contact Karen Morris at [email protected]

Going to the beach always requires a bit of prep work — sunscreen, sandals, snacks— but for beachgoers with disabilities, a trip down the shore also requires navigating a way onto the sand.

There are dozens of beaches lining New Jersey’s 127-mile coastline, but depending on where you go access for people with disabilities can vary widely.

Public beaches are mandated under the Americans with Disabilities Act to provide an accessible entrance, but there are no specific rules or guidelines outlining how or what other access should be provided, according to Jennifer Perry, an access specialist at the Northeast ADA Center.

NJ Advance Media compiled information about access at the 44 towns along the Jersey Shore and visited 18 different beaches to get a picture of just how reachable the beaches are. Each municipality — whether it’s Spring Lake with its 2.3 miles of coastline or Ocean City with its sprawling beach — has at least one “accessible entrance,” which is the minimum required under the Americans with Disabilities Act, according to information published by each town. But the similarities end there.

During our visits to the shore, we found that some beaches had mats that extended all the way to the high tide mark, or water-accessible wheelchairs able to bring someone right into the surf. Yet other beach entrances that are listed as accessible only offer soft, sandy pathways through steep dunes that are hard to navigate in flip-flops, much less a wheelchair.

On a positive note, advocates for people with disabilities say accessibility onto beaches is improving but the lack of federal or state laws defining what “accessibility” should entail means towns are left to develop their own interpretations.

A bill introduced in the New Jersey Legislature by state Sen. Vin Gopal, D-Monmouth, would require the state Department of Environmental Protection to spell out exactly what accessibility means and provide guidelines that would address features like ramps, boardwalks, beach wheelchairs, showers and bathrooms.

In the absence of any standardization, NJ Advance Media has created a downloadable and printable guide with accessibility information for Jersey Shore beaches, available below.

The guide is based on information published on town websites and in county guides on disability access. Residents should confirm information with the beach before heading out. The information included is accurate as of June 2022.

That's one of the marks of a great singer."

During the event, as a special treat for guests, Ms. Morris will raffle off jars of marinara sauce made especially by the ever popular NYC eatery, Patsy's Italian Restaurant, also well known as Frank Sinatra's favorite restaurant!

While not talked about a lot, being "in the buff" in the Garden State is still a sorta-kinda relatively popular activity.

I mean, it's not as popular as, like, going to an Eagles or Giants game or something, but to each his own.

And perhaps it's not talked about a lot because where one can be free, in that capacity, is pretty limited in this state.

Or, more likely, it's not talked about a lot because being naked in public while playing badminton or throwing a frisbee is seen as weird to lots of people.

The other day, I was reading a piece that a co-worker wrote a while ago that asked if the old nudist camp in Mays Landing from the 1930s should reopen. That got me to think about where you can legally be in the buff in New Jersey.

As it turns out, if you wish to bare it all here, your choices are very limited.

And that's not the only thing that was very limited. As it turns out, while researching this topic, I discovered that our corporate IT people frown upon folks visiting nudist websites while at work (who'da thunk?). So, since I couldn't actually visit the websites of many of the places below, I had to piece a lot of the information together. Therefore, do you own research before visiting any of these places.

To the best of my knowledge, here's where it's totally legal to be totally naked in New Jersey.

The only legal clothing-optional beach in the Garden State is Gunnison Beach at Sandy Hook/Gateway National Recreation Area. In fact, it's the largest such beach on the East Coast. It's not uncommon to see thousands of people sans clothing there on any given weekend in the summer.

According to Wikipedia, "It was the discovery of Gunnison Beach's natural seclusion by park visitors in the late 1970s and early 1980s that led to its inception as a nude beach."

Sky Farm is a members-only nudist resort located on a 36-acres Basking Ridge, Somerset County. According to their website (which I can't actually look at), it is the oldest clothing-optional club in America.

Another place in New Jersey where you can be as free as you want to be is in the Hackettstown/Mt. Olive section of Warren County. That's where you'll find Goodland Country Club, "a nudist park with a very large swimming pool, sunbathing, [and] camping," and areas to park your RV, too.

The Rock Lodge Club is a naturist club in Hardyston Township, Sussex County. Sitting on some 145 acres, the area is rich in history; the nudist club began in 1946.

So far, all of the locations that have been mentioned have been legal clothing-optional places in New Jersey. And then there's Higbee Beach.

According to capemay.com, Higbee Beach, on the Delaware Bay side of Cape May County, has had a colorful history. In the 1960s, it, "became a naturist’s destination – with nudity on the beach unchallenged for many years."

However, challenges for those that enjoyed the beach started in 1986 when Lower Township passed an ordinance banning nudity, which a state court supported. The state passed a similar law in the 1990s.

Nearly a century ago, Sunshine Park opened along Somers Point-Mays Landing Road in Mays Landing. According to Shore Local News,

[The park] became a weekend getaway for as many as 750 practicing nudist families. Men, women and children would stay in cabins, enjoying the natural sunbathing, swimming pool, playing tennis, using the sauna, whirlpool and playing miniature golf. Most people would gather in the evenings before the mosquitoes would start biting and play volleyball.

In the 1980s, more and more residents complained about the park and it officially closed in 1983.
