Basement Waterproofing in Brick Township

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:

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 Brick Township:

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:

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:

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 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

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.

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.

Get it Done Right, the First Time

Other companies may offer temporary or partial solutions. At Healthy Way, we believe in correcting the problem completely, so you save money and have long-term peace of mind. Our goal is to fix your problem to prevent it from coming back, or we won’t do the work!

 If you require quality basement waterproofing, it all starts with a FREE inspection from our certified waterproofing experts. We will take as much time as you need to find your problem, develop a solution, and walk you through our process step-by-step.

NJ graduations for lower grades are ridiculous (Opinion)

Is this just me? Is this me having a ‘get off my lawn’ or a ‘back in my day‘ moment? Graduations should be for high stool seniors putting K-12 behind them and for college graduates. That’s it. I have to take a day off work Friday because my daughter is “graduating” from 8th grade. She starts high school in September. So the middle school, just as they did for my son two years ago, is holding a promotion ceremony. (Okay, slight mitigation points for calling it that and not a graduation ceremony…

Is this just me? Is this me having a ‘get off my lawn’ or a ‘back in my day‘ moment? Graduations should be for high stool seniors putting K-12 behind them and for college graduates. That’s it.

I have to take a day off work Friday because my daughter is “graduating” from 8th grade. She starts high school in September. So the middle school, just as they did for my son two years ago, is holding a promotion ceremony. (Okay, slight mitigation points for calling it that and not a graduation ceremony, but still.)

It’s a ticketed outdoor event with folding chairs on a huge lawn. It’s cap and gown. Which we had to pay for. It’s professional photography. Which we have to pay for. And it’s being held at 5 p.m. with speeches and honors and a processional. The works.

You know what we got when I “graduated” from middle school? Some advice from a surly teacher like, “Hey idiots, high school next year and sh#% gets real! Now get out of here.”

They’re doing this at even lower grades. Elementary schools are having promotion ceremonies to move on to middle school. Day care and pre-schools are doing legit cap and gown ceremonies for moving on to Kindergarten. Parents stand around teary-eyed talking about what big kids they’ve become. Are you kidding me? By the time these kids graduate high school some of them will have done this three other times. Aren’t we making their real graduation less special? Less meaningful? Aren’t we watering down the concept?

This sounds like a wholly American form of self-aggrandizement. But guess what? Here’s a BBC article on the subject saying it’s been happening everywhere. It’s being done throughout Europe as well as the Far East and the Middle East. Has the whole world gone insane? Are we celebrating mediocrity now? Giving out halfway awards and just starting out ribbons? Is that where we’ve come?

My daughter is a straight A student and I’m very proud of her hard work. That being said, get off my lawn.

South, Group 3 boys lacrosse final preview – Shawnee at Ocean City

Monday, June 7

2-Shawnee (11-6) at 1-Ocean City (12-6), 3 p.m.

How they got here: Shawnee was unstoppable in the first two rounds, beating Toms River South and Jackson Memorial by a combined score of 32-4. The Renegades needed to bring their best effort in the semis though to pull out a win in a rematch with Moorestown. Those two teams played in a one-goal thriller during the regular season and both squads knew how intense this playoff matchup would be.

Ocean City is on a path to make history and it all started with a 14-3 win over Brick Township in the quarterfinals. The Red Raiders followed that up with another convincing win, coming through with a victory over Clearview this weekend to book a spot in its first sectional final.

Players to watch: Shawnee has a young squad and that group has been getting better all year. Sophomore Ethan Krauss and Nate Sears have taken over as the go-to players on offense and they’re joined by Tyler Korchak and David Minder on that end of the field. Shawnee has been counting on a group of defensemen that includes juniors Freddie McAneney, Liam Scherb and Brad Mead as well as sophomores Joshua Peluse, Sam Beamer and Vaughn Feudtner. The defense has come into form down the stretch and has been especially hard to beat with sophomore Jimmy Potter making impressive saves in net. That group has kept Shawnee in games all year and has only given up double-digit goals once this season.

Ocean City has been building up its program the last few years and this looks like the most talented version of the Red Raiders. Seniors Brady Rauner and Jake Schneider have been veteran leaders on offense along with junior Nick Volpe. The surprise of this year, however, has been the play of rookie Pat Grimley. The freshman leads this team in scoring and he’s been one of the best young players in the state this season. Sophomore Dylan Dwyer has made a name for himself as well this spring, making plays on offense and at the faceoff X. Seniors Jake Inserra and Dan Reeves lead the defense along with junior Kyle Hendricks. That group plays physical defense and will be ready to go in this championship setting. Senior Gavin Jackson has also brought experience to the defense with his play in net for the Red Raiders,

Key factor: History in the making.

Ocean City has been waiting for this moment ever since Shawnee knocked it out in the 2019 sectional semifinals in a one-game nail-biter. Everything that Ocean City has done since then is to get this opportunity to go out and win the program’s first-ever sectional title.

That included beefing up the regular season schedule.

Ocean City is battle-tested now after playing Don Bosco Prep, Rumson-Fair Haven and some of the truly elite teams in the state. The Red Raiders didn’t walk away with wins in any of those games, but each showdown got this squad ready for championship action.

Shawnee has been here before and will not let the moment overwhelm it despite having a younger squad this year. The Renegades have been getting better each week and they too have played a schedule that has this team ready for a championship push.

The defense has been the difference lately and if it comes to play again on Monday, Shawnee could be walking away with another road win on Ocean City’s home turf.

Prediction: Shawnee 10, Ocean City 9.

Tenafly, NJ district suspends teacher who assigned Hitler ‘accomplishments’ project

The principal at Maugham Elementary School in Tenafly and the teacher who assigned a project in which a fifth grader talked about the “accomplishments” of Hitler have been placed on administrative leave. Principal Jennifer Ferrara, head of the school for eight years, and the teacher will remain on leave pending the conclusion of the investigation and whatever actions are recommended by the Board of Education.

The principal at Maugham Elementary School in Tenafly and the teacher who assigned a project in which a fifth grader talked about the “accomplishments” of Hitler have been placed on administrative leave.

Principal Jennifer Ferrara, head of the school for eight years, and the teacher will remain on leave pending the conclusion of the investigation and whatever actions are recommended by the Board of Education.

Public records show Ferrara has been in the district since 2001 and earns a salary of $164,664. The teacher was not identified by Superintendent Shauna DeMarco.

The superintendent said in a letter that district policy about teaching “difficult and sensitive material” is supposed to involve parents, which was not followed in this case.

“Our initial review indicates that the curriculum and learning standards were not appropriately implemented and an attempt to individualize the project resulted in the student receiving misguided instruction from the teacher. The posting of the resulting project was offensive and inappropriate and directly violated the school board’s policies,” DeMarco said.

While the "accomplishments" were displayed in a hallway, DeMarco said that some in the school expressed "concern" to Ferrara.

She said that policies only work when they are enforced and the investigation will seek to understand why they were not followed with this assignment.

"We value the feedback we have heard from parents, teachers, religious and cultural leaders, and many other concerned Tenafly residents," DeMarco said. "I hope this investigation demonstrates how seriously we take what has happened and our commitment to creating a safe and comfortable environment for our children to learn about the world."

DeMarco said the student and family have been "thrown into turmoil" and the incident caused pain for the Jewish community at a time when instances of anti-Semitism are on the rise.

Mayor Mark Zinna and several Jewish organizations defended the student in a joint statement released Thursday.

"We are confident that this family had no intention of harming or offending anyone and should not be blamed or held responsible for the events at the school," they said.

The Tenafly Board of Education has a meeting scheduled for Monday but the agenda was not posted as of early Friday afternoon.
