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.

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:
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
- 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 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

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.

Note: Many of the snow totals below were updated by the National Weather Service Saturday night and added into the list below Sunday morning. They are still considered preliminary numbers until they are confirmed by the weather service.
The snow from the powerful nor’easter is still falling at a steady rate in some parts of New Jersey Saturday morning, and the winds are roaring across the Jersey Shore where blizzard warnings remain in effect.
While only light snow has fallen in northern and western sections of the state, in other areas a standard ruler isn’t long enough to measure the big piles of snow on the ground. In the Forked River section of Lacey Township in Ocean County, 15.5 inches of snow has already been reported.
Update: By early Saturday afternoon, Lacey Township’s snowfall total climbed to 16 inches and was matched by two other places in Ocean County: Manahawkin and Tuckerton. In addition, there were unconfirmed public reports of 18.5 inches in Absecon and a whopping 21 inches in Bayville.
As of 8 a.m. Saturday, more than a foot of snow had piled up in several towns in Atlantic, Cape May, Monmouth and Ocean counties, and 8 inches of snow had been measured in parts of Burlington County, according to preliminary reports from the National Weather Service and trained weather observers from the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network, known as CoCoRaHS.
Here’s a look at the latest preliminary snow totals, county-by-county. (Note: Many of the numbers below were updated by the National Weather Service Saturday night.)

Iconic Jersey Shore restaurant shuts its doors after 33 years

More than 30 years of summers filled with food, family and memories have officially come to an end.
Avon Pavilion, an iconic restaurant among locals on the boardwalk in Avon-By-The-Sea, announced in a Facebook post this week that this past summer was its last.
The closing was the result of medical issues among members of upper management, according to owner Robert Fishman.
“Health always comes first,” he said. “People think that life is like a play, it’s four acts. You got the first act, the second act — well unfortunately life is just one.”
Avon Pavilion, which opened each year in May and closed in September, is known for its casual fine dining fare with stunning views of the ocean as well as its boardwalk windows, where guests could walk up and order some quick eats.
Since its opening in 1990, the restaurant has faced many challenges, such as a nor’easter two years after it opened that decimated the boardwalk and destroyed the building, Hurricane Sandy in 2012, and most recently, the coronavirus pandemic.
“It’s all about hard work, passion and dedication,” Fishman said. “Even through these trials and tribulations, our team always showed up.”
Shortly after the announcement went live, floods of comments came through expressing sadness, reminiscing about the good times, but most of all love, offering support and gratitude for the team.
“A huge part of the love that has been outpouring is that our restaurant has always been so family-oriented between not only the team but our guests too,” said owner Michelle Fishman, Robert’s wife. “We go to all their weddings and baptisms. They’ve been such a huge part of our lives.”
Although the owners are saddened by the loss, they will always carry this experience with them, they say.
Kenneth Samuels, the executive chef and a partner, says he’s going to take some time off and recharge.
“It’s like a double-edged sword. It’s bittersweet,” he said. “It’s going to be nice to be able to move on, reinvent and get a little bit of rest and relaxation.
“But I’m definitely going to miss seeing the team year after year and making all these memories.”

If you think homes in New Jersey are expensive, you’re right. There are now nearly three dozen places in the Garden State where the average home price exceeds $1 million.
Those prices are based on 15% growth statewide in 2021, according to data from The Otteau Group.
The average price of a single family home in New Jersey in January 2022 was $551,028, according to New Jersey Realtors.
But home sales in the $1 million to $2.5 million price range increased by 27% in 2021 — the largest increase of any price category, according to data from The Otteau Group.
That was due to trade-up buyers who finally entered the frenzied pandemic real estate market — existing homeowners in New Jersey who wanted to move into larger homes.
“There was lots of uncertainty about job security during the pandemic,” said Jeffrey Otteau, a real estate economist and president of the Otteau Group. Trade-up buyers were also “reluctant to bring strangers into their homes due to the risk they might bring the virus with them.”
“Existing homeowners sheltered in place,” he said. “That’s changed.”
Nationally, the number of cities where home values exceeded $1 million almost tripled last year to 481 cities, according to Zillow. The New York metropolitan area now has 76 cities with homes valued over $1 million. And 34 of them are in New Jersey.
Of those, Monmouth and Ocean counties each had eight towns; Bergen and Cape May counties each had five; Somerset, Essex and Morris had two; and Union and Atlantic each had one.
In this data set, put together by Zillow, the state’s priciest zip code, according to Property Shark, did not rank number one.
Here are the 34 cities in New Jersey where the average home price exceeded $1 million, the average 2021 price and the percent it changed from 2020.

Please Stop Butchering The Names Of These New Jersey Towns
It's the time of year here at the Jersey Shore, when all those tourists visit our little piece of paradise, use our beaches, support our favorite restaurants, and inadvertently butcher our town names.Not every town can be a Point Pleasant, or a Belmar, or a Seaside. Those town names pose exactly zero challenges.But other towns pay the price for their more intricate pronunciations.

It's the time of year here at the Jersey Shore, when all those tourists visit our little piece of paradise, use our beaches, support our favorite restaurants, and inadvertently butcher our town names.
Not every town can be a Point Pleasant, or a Belmar, or a Seaside. Those town names pose exactly zero challenges.
But other towns pay the price for their more intricate pronunciations. Here are the five most mispronounced Brown names in Monmouth & Ocean Counties.
Mantoloking - No, it's not Man-TAH-luh-king, or Man-tuh-LOCK-ing, but even more commonly, most people just drop the last letter and we're left with Mantolokin. This town is too beautiful to be mispronounced.
Forked River. The first word is not a verb. The town is not getting "forked". If you've lived here for more than a minute, you know it's Fork-ID river. Please never say it the other way again.
Manalapan. There is no kitchen item mentioned in the name of this town. How many times have you heard Muh-nah-luh-PAN. It hurts my ears. Just put a pin in it. Muh-nah-luh-PIN. Thank you.
Avon-by-the-Sea. We're not selling makeup here. If you want makeup, call A-von with a long A. If you want a beautiful, serene beach town, you'd go to Avon with a short A.
Barnegat. Why do some people insist on Bar-nuh-GAT (rhymes with cat)? On second thought, I think we need to blame the pronunciation on this one. If you had never heard it out loud, you might say the same thing.
If you know someone who is visiting the area this summer, you might want to share this with them. Let them know we appreciate their love of our area and their support for our local businesses, but we want to give them an edge over all the other tourists. Tell them it's like GPS for the mouth.
In New Jersey, Names Aren't Always What They Seem
JERSEY HOOKER OUTFITTERS
Fine, I went way out of the are for this one. All the way to Memphis. But, could you blame me?
The Most Populated Towns In Monmouth County & Ocean County
Looking to follow the masses? Want to be in a town where everything is hip and happening? Here are the best suggestions based on population:
2. Toms River
Zip Code: 08753
Toms River is known for having somewhat affordable property tax and has easy access to Seaside Heights, Seaside Park and Lavallette just a few miles down Route 37.
There's so much to check out in Tom's River and not enough time.
The Least Crowded Towns In Monmouth & Ocean County
Looking to avoid the crowds? Here are the least crowded towns at the Jersey Shore.
10. Monmouth Beach
Zip Code: 07750
Outside of the Summer months, this town must be nice and quiet!
9. West Creek
Zip Code: 08092
It's small. It's quiet. And for some, it's perfect.
8. Seaside Park
Zip Code: 08752
I was surprised to hear Seaside Park had a low population considering how popular it is. But it is a smaller town and you more commonly hear people visiting Seaside Heights, not Seaside Park.
Zip Code: 07721 - this zip code also applies to areas in Old Bridge & Laurence Harbor which falls in Middlesex County
Having these three towns on the list was very surprising to me. Where did the people go?
Zip Coe: 07723
I feel like Deal is a popular beach for visitors during the Summer...but to serve the visitors, you need residents. So....where are they?
5. Pine Beach
Zip Code: 08741
For this type of small town, I think it is more that only so many people can fit in such a small area. Looks beautiful though!
Zip Code: 08733
Anywhere directly along the coast probably has more annual visitors than residents if you think about it.
Zip Code: 08738
Have you ever seen the homes in Mantoloking...they are MASSIVE! I bet there is a lack of year round residents because of the cost alone.
2. Avon By The Sea
Zip Code: 07717
This has got to be another town where the cost of the area has an effect on the population versus the area itself.
Zip Code: 07711
Less than 2,000 people. Are you serious?!
