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 Belmar:
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

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

BELMAR, NJ — With the start of the Summer Olympics days away, the Belmar Public Library Youth Art Program\'s salute to the games continues on July 20 with participants creating a Go USA! sun catcher.
Children in kindergarten through sixth grade will make this patriotic dazzler to display in any window.
The session is part of the six-week summer program at the library, which is led by longtime art instructor Dawn Lisko, who is back at the library offering live instruction. “I am very excited to be back to in-person projects, she said. “It’s difficult especially in the summer to want to go on the computer to learn something new that’s truly meant to be hands-on and interactive.
Lisko had selected the Olympics theme for last summer’s program, but the coronavirus pandemic put the games and the in-person program on hold — until now. While the first session will involve a general project related to the international sports event, the following sessions will focus on several participating countries.
“I’ve always enjoyed summers when the Olympics are on,” said the Belmar resident who is a Red Bank Regional High School art teacher. “I hope this helps the younger generation connect the two and get more excited about following the games as well.”
Here’s a rundown of the remaining Tuesday sessions, which begin at 4 p.m. at the library, located at 517 10th Avenue on the corner of E Street. Each workshop, which is limited to 10 students, includes a link for registration.
For more information on the Youth Art Workshop, call the library at 732-681-0775 or email [email protected].

BELMAR, NJ – During recent meetings, the Belmar borough has been asked questions about how much the borough helped in regards to trying to keep the Belmar First Aid Squad (BFAS) from disbanding on March 31.
To quell these concerns, the borough of Belmar has posted all correspondence between the borough and the BFAS from September of last year up to the end of June.
The first letter was a letter from the BFAS to the mayor and council on Sept 20 explaining that they would have to start billing Belmar residents unless they had a "solid plan in place to ensure the financial stability of our Squad."
Jerry Dasti, the borough\'s then-attorney, sent a letter to the BFAS on Nov. 25 requesting their financials going back to 2018 for an audit. On Dec. 2, Ken Pringle, the BFAS\' attorney and former Belmar mayor, responded via email to Dasti\'s request by stating that the BFAS didn\'t have to submit their books to the borough as they didn\'t meet the amount listed in the statute Dasti referenced in his Nov. 25 letter.
On Jan. 4, Pringle sent a letter and email to the mayors of Belmar and Lake Como informing them of the BFAS\' plan to dissolve. Four days later, Dasti responded to Pringle, asking to reconsider and meet with the city to figure out a solution.
Pringle responded on Jan.10, stating that the dissolution was not a negotiation tactic and that the BFAS would do everything in its power to help the town transition.
There is then a gap in correspondence until May 11, where Dasti informs Pringle that the borough is "considering eminent domain proceedings in the future" and that the BFAS should let all prospective bidders on the BFAS property know this. The borough did approve an ordinance allowing for the potential use of eminent domain at their July 6 council meeting.
The following correspondence between Dasti and Pringle on June 7-14 shows the two lawyers going back and forth over the various deed restrictions that the BFAS included in the sale, which the borough did not accept and led to the BFAS being no longer willing to sell to the borough.
The last couple of emails include an email from borough business administrator Edward Kirschenbaum to the BFAS members disputing Pringle\'s claims and assuring them that the borough has no desire to knock down the current building.
"We want to continue to house the Belmar EMS in that building," Kirschenbaum said in the June 14 email.
"I just want you to know that what we are going through is in the best interest of public safety for our residents."

I had a tremendous Saturday! I started the day broadcasting LIVE from the New Jersey Natural Gas Asbury Park Boardwalk Studio. After an exciting show on the boardwalk, I then made my way to Lake Como for a Miller Lite broadcast at Bar Anticipation. I am truly thankful I get to do LIVE radio at some of the coolest Jersey Shore spots. Thank you for reading my articles and listening to my shows!
So let\'s highlight this Belmar cheesesteak that\'s turning a ton of heads...
Once I was finished at Bar Anticipation, I started walking towards Main St. in Belmar. I was on a mission to find a cheesesteak my friends were once raving about during a night out. Were my friends intoxicated when they had these cheesesteaks? Yes, but like they say, "The truth comes out when you are drunk."
Let\'s cut to the chase, I went to Steak Stand on Main St. in Belmar and they simply have one of the best cheesesteaks at the Jersey Shore. The cheesesteak that I ate had no chance. I was very intrigued to try the "Garlic Butter Cheesteak" and it did not disappoint! The bread was soft, the steak was fresh, and the cheese was melted perfectly.
It\'s a steak stand, so you know what you are getting, and what you\'re getting is a damn good sandwich...a sub...or a hoagie, depending on where you are reading this...
The menu is perfectly simple...
(Chicken or Steak)
Main Stand - signature cheese, peppers, and onion.
Garlic Butter - signature cheese, garlic butter, peppers, and onions.
BBW & Ranch - provolone cheese, BBQ + Ranch, onions, and mushrooms.
Buffalo Glory - American cheese, buffalo sauce, ranch, celery, and onions.
Cali Classic - American cheese, aioli, lettuce, tomato, and onions.
Hot Tasty - signature cheese, spices, and cherry peppers.
You can also get CURLY FRIES (with different toppings), Chicken Tenders, Cheese Balls, and Vanilla Milkshakes!
Steak Stand is located at 1405 Main Street in Belmar. I highly recommend you pig out at this place!
P.S - I hope you had a wonderful Jersey Shore weekend! - Jimmy G
Belmar Council Approves Measure to Acquire Belmar First Aid Squad by Eminent Domain as Last Resort

If Belmar and Belmar First Aid cannot reach an agreement over the sale of the squad\'s vacant headquarters, the borough plans to begin eminent domain proceedings to acquire the site for its EMS base.
BELMAR, NJ — Belmar Council has voted to give the borough the option to acquire the shuttered Belmar First Aid Squad building by eminent domain — only if it cannot reach an agreement with the squad’s officers for an outright purchase of the property.
Under the ordinance unanimously approved by the governing body on July 6, the borough is authorized to spend up to $1.5 million to buy the 414 Ninth Avenue property, where BFAS called home for nearly 100 years. After BFAS ceased operations in April, Belmar took over those duties and now wants to base its new Division of Emergency Medical Services at that location.
However, a major stumbling block is a deed restriction in the latest sale agreement that would prohibit Belmar from expanding the existing building and parking areas on the half-acre site at any time in the future.
During the July 6 council meeting, Borough Attorney Patrick Varga stressed that the approved measure was not an “eminent domain ordinance” — and that the borough was not going to issue an eminent domain proceeding “right out of the gate.”
“What this does is it provides the money to begin negotiating at arm\'s length — now under the (state’s) eminent domain statute,” he said, referring to a real estate term that is defined as when both parties are acting in their own self-interest to obtain the best possible outcome, including price.
“Our intention is to resolve this in the most amicable manner possible because we want to respect the (squad\'s) long and endearing history to this town,” he added. “Our goal is to negotiate until we hit a brick wall and then there\'s nothing further ... At that point, we would have to make the decision whether or not we\'re going to proceed by filing a declaration of taking.”
During the public hearing on the ordinance, several residents expressed their objections over proceeding through eminent domain, particularly as a sole decision made by the council. Instead, they said voters should decide through a referendum whether the borough should proceed to purchase the BAFS property through that legal means.
“This ordinance stinks, it’s slimy, it’s abuse of power, and it’s corrupt,” James Bean of 16th Avenue told the council, adding that by voting for the ordinance, “the words ‘eminent domain’ will be forever attached to you.”
On the other hand, Bean said, a referendum in November “would allow the townspeople to decide whether this is legitimate or not. I understand why the town wants this building, but I don’t agree with how you’re doing it.”
Should the borough decide to exercise its power of eminent domain, Gerald Buccafusco of Fifth Avenue called on the governing body to officially vote again on that specific decision. “I don’t want to hear about an (eminent domain) filing has already been filed in (Monmouth County) without any public input,” he said.
Buccafusco also voiced his support the referendum. “I would let the people make that decision for you, and it’s a win-win,” said the Democratic candidate for council in the upcoming general election. “It gets you off the hook and it allows the public to have input into the process of whether or not you know eminent domain takes place all.”
Before Mayor Mark Walsifer, Council President Patricia Wann and Councilmen Thomas Carvelli and James McCracken all voted for the ordinance, McCracken said that this was a tough decision that needed to be made for the benefit of the borough. “We all wish that negotiations were not at this point, but we have a situation where we have to move forward so that we can protect the public adequately, he said, adding that the legacy of the BFAS has to be supported as well.
“We have to make sure that the hundred years of fantastic work that they did protecting our residents continues, so with that, I hope it never gets to eminent domain,” he said. “I\'m voting for these negotiations to continue so that we can do what we are elected to do, and that\'s protect the people who live in this borough.”
Contacted following the meeting, BFAS attorney Kenneth Pringle said that there have been no negotiations since June 11 when he said he was told by Borough Attorney Jerry Dasti that the borough would not agree to a deed restriction limiting the expansion of the BFAS building because the borough planned to consolidate all three fire companies there.
Borough officials said at the council’s June 15 meeting there are no plans to move all three fire companies to the BFAS site (click here).
The most recent communication, Pringle said, was a letter from Dasti confirming his office would “accept service of process,” referring to the borough’s complaint commencing eminent domain proceedings.
“So, while the mayor and Borough Attorney (Patrick Varga) kept saying at last evening’s meeting that the borough would resort to eminent domain only if negotiations failed, they apparently neglected to tell Mr. Dasti that. Seriously, I don’t see how any negotiations can be fair so long as the borough continues to threaten to use eminent domain to take the property unless the BFAS bends to its terms,” Pringle said in an email.
Pringle said that Belmar voters have the “ability to take the eminent domain issue off the table” under its form of government. Since the ordinance does not take effect until 20 days after notice of its adoption has been published — which in this case is July 8 — voters have the right to submit a petition with a required number of valid signatures that will prevent the ordinance from going into effect, unless it is passed at a referendum on the November ballot.
“Removing the threat of eminent domain from the equation would provide the parties with the time and opportunity to educate the public about this issue, so that our voters can make an informed decision as to how our tax dollars should best be spent,” Pringle said.
"In the meantime, the BFAS will remain open to a negotiated agreement that would protect the BFAS’s neighbors from any expansion of the BFAS building to add the borough’s six fire trucks,” he added.
