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 Englishtown:
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

A retiring schools superintendent in Monmouth County placed on leave last week at his request after refusing to defy Gov. Phil Murphy’s mask mandate is making a comeback at graduation.
John J. Marciante said he will speak at the June 21 commencement ceremony for eighth-graders in the Manalapan-Englishtown Regional school district. He will return from administrative leave at 3 p.m. on June 22 after all students in the K-8 district have departed for summer vacation.
“This was really a move to allow that crisis to be averted. It worked,” Marciante said in referencing the standoff with a large and very vocal group of parents opposed to the mask mandate.
Immediately after placing him on a two-week leave June 8, the school board unanimously approved a revised policy making masks optional for students, and also for vaccinated teachers and staff members. It was a change that Marciante, citing Murphy’s executive order, had refused to make.
School board president Dotty Porcaro said she admires Marciante and was saddened by the conflict over masks.
“He is a man of integrity. He had values and principles, and he follows the rules. That was the crux of the problem,” Porcaro told NJ Advance Media on Wednesday.
“Dr. Marciante did not want to go against the governor’s directive. He gave us the option of going out on administrative leave, because once he was out of the way we could proceed with giving the parents what they were asking for,” Porcaro said.
Marciante is planning to finish up some evaluations and other tasks by June 30, his last day on the job before starting his retirement that was planned well in advance of the mask controversy. He is a 1968 graduate of the school district, which he has led for 14 years.
“It’s been an interesting end to my career, to say the very least,” Marciante, 67, told NJ Advance Media on Tuesday night.
The unexpected interruption in his final month was set in motion by a contentious school board meeting on June 8, held one week after about 100 parents asked the board to lift the mask mandates in the school district’s eight schools — only three of which are fully air-conditioned.
Marciante told the audience he would follow Murphy’s executive order, which allows for removing masks only in cases of “extreme heat” and some other circumstances. He held firm as a series of speakers spoke in support of lifting the mask requirement altogether, a step recently taken by at least two other districts in New Jersey.
“I personally said, I’m not doing it because, one, it’s against the mandate, and two, the CDC doesn’t recommend it,” Marciante said in recounting the meeting.
Tensions quickly escalated, as described by Marciante in a followup letter to parents.
“A parent asked me directly what I am going to do when she sends her daughter into school without a mask. I did not answer immediately. She repeated as she increasingly raised the volume of her voice as she asked the question. Her preschool-aged daughter moved into a fetal position at her feet crying as she continued to repeat the question,” Marciante wrote in his letter.
“All of a sudden someone shouted out something about ‘it is all over Facebook and we are all sending our children into school tomorrow without masks.’ I immediately turned to the president and the vice president of the board and indicated that we needed to go into a closed session to discuss a personnel matter,” he wrote.
School board vice president Brian Graime made he motion to put Marciante on leave.
“It breaks my heart, but I have to do it,” Graime told the audience.
The motion was approved in a 6-1 vote, with Porcaro abstaining.
Marciante said he picked up the crumb cake someone had given him for his birthday, which was the next day, and an award he had been given earlier in the meeting, and left the room.
School board member Gerald Bruno then made the motion to revise the mask policy. It passed, 8-0.
Porcaro said “the board understood the governor’s directive, but considered the heat of the situation and the fact that there were very few days left of school.”
Marciante, a native of Queens, N.Y., moved to New Jersey with his family at age 11. He began his career in education as a school psychologist.
“I’m not planning anything at this moment. I’ve worked a long time. The pandemic, if anything, was exhausting,” he said when asked about his future plans.
He is putting the finishing touches on his commencement address.
“I happen to think that these young children have experienced significant events beyond anything I experienced as a young person. I see them as kind of like the next, ‘greatest generation.’ I do feel they’ll get us to the other side. I’m optimistic,” Marciante said.

FAFSA Completions Down In NJ: How Manalapan Area Schools Compare

MANALAPAN, NJ — Applications for federal college financial aid are notably lower this year, and that could mean fewer freshmen when classes begin this fall.
Prospective college students can fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid to qualify for subsidized student loans and other forms of aid. FAFSA applications declined 5.8 percent nationally this year compared with the same time last year. About 1.72 million students completed the application as of June 25, compared with 1.83 million in 2020, according to an Associated Press analysis of FAFSA data.
As of February this year, FAFSA applications were down 10 percent from last year. But the completion rate increased in the spring, when schools could hold more in-school FAFSA help events that were canceled last year because of the pandemic.
A decline in the FAFSA completion rate could be a harbinger of lower enrollment in the fall. The class of 2020 had 3.7 percent fewer FAFSA applications than the class of 2019; postsecondary enrollment dropped 6.8 percent between the class of 2020 and 2019, according to the National College Attainment Network.
In New Jersey, 55,028 FAFSA applications were completed as of June 25, compared with 57,281 completions at the same point last year. That is a 3.9 percent decrease. (See how Manalapan area high schools compare below.)
The decline is steeper among Title 1 high schools, meaning those where low-income students make up at least 40 percent of enrollment. Title 1 high school completions dropped 8.83 percent, compared with a 3.86 decrease for non-Title 1 schools.
In New Jersey, completed applications dropped 8.7 percent from Title 1 schools, compared with a 2.8 percent drop for non-Title 1 school applications as of June 25.
Here is how schools in the Manalapan area are doing with FAFSA completion as of June 25. See more Manalapan area high schools here. Note: Percent changes can be affected by a relatively small difference in completions, especially for smaller schools. FAFSA data only counts students who are no older than 19.
School: Manalapan High School District: Freehold Regional High School District Municipality: Englishtown
The FAFSA application for the 2020-21 academic year closes June 30 at 11:59 p.m. CT, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Many states and colleges set their own deadlines for aid applications. There has been a push in recent years to have students fill out the FAFSA earlier in their senior year.
Editor\'s note: This list was automatically generated using FAFSA data analyzed by the Associated Press. Federal high school counts don\'t include students over the age of 19. Information isn\'t available for all schools. Schools with fewer than five completions are omitted from the data. Please report any errors or other feedback to [email protected].

As part of a $500 million capital grants initiative, the governor\'s office has recommended funding to several Monmouth school districts.
MANALAPAN, NJ - The Murphy Administration is recommending $317.2 million in awards that is on its way to the Legislature for final approval - and Manalapan-Englishtown Regional Schools are slated to receive a chunk of the funding if passed.
$264,480 has been recommended to the Legislature for allocation to Manalapan-Englishtown Regional Schools under the first round of projects for the Securing Our Children\'s Future Bond Act (SOCFBA), a $500 million statewide capital grants initiative approved by voters in November 2018, according to a spokesperson from the governor\'s press office.
The grants will fund school security, water infrastructure improvements, and enhancement of career and technical education (CTE) in county vocational-technical school districts and county colleges, according to a news release from Gov. Phil Murphy\'s office. Approximately $26 million has been allocated for county college CTE projects, $220.2 million for county vocational school district CTE project, $5.6 million for water infrastructure projects and $65.4 million for school security projects.
At Manalapan-Englishtown Regional Schools, the funding will go towards the installation of silent panic alarms to alert law enforcement during an emergency and for other school security upgrades including exterior lighting improvements, surveillance cameras, intercoms, remote locking/unlocking doors, shatter-resistant glass, signage improvements, generator installation, and impact-rated vehicle barriers, the governor\'s office said.
"I have long believed that investments in our students and schools are investments in the future of our state," Murphy said in a statement. "These projects will help our school districts and institutions of higher education keep students safe and healthy, while also ensuring that they are ready for the careers of the future."
"This is an investment in future opportunities for our children," said Senate President Steve Sweeney. "It will help provide them with job skills for the modern workforce, improve their safety and security in schoolrooms, and protect their health and well-being by ensuring clean water. It is an investment in their future and in the future of New Jersey, and I look forward to reviewing the proposed projects."
The first round of the SOCFBA will fund 494 proposed projects, totaling approximately $65.4 million. Murphy plans to announce a second round of grants at a later date.

"Our children deserve the chance to learn in peace," said Assemblyman Ralph Caputo. "It has taken many years to get to this day. Alyssa\'s family and community have been steadfast champions of the legislation that has brought us here and I commend them for that. Coupled with security measures already in place, this project funding can increase the chances of diffusing a bad situation without further harm to students and staff. I\'m proud to see the project moving forward."
Here\'s how much each Monmouth County school district was recommended by the Murphy administration:

ENGLISHTOWN, NJ - An Englishtown resident and recent Marlboro High School graduate has been awarded a scholarship to attend college next year for her efforts in organ and tissue donation advocacy.
Jessica Riepe, a former member of Marlboro High School\'s Donate Life Club and 2021 alumnus, unwaveringly spreads awareness about organ donation and will share her family\'s personal story related to organ donation with anyone willing to listen, according to a news release.
Riepe\'s connection to donation and transplantation came when her closest cousin passed away and became a donor in 2016. Riepe recalls how difficult this time was for her and her entire family, but she was so inspired by her cousin\'s selfless gift of life.
Riepe was presented with a Betsy Niles Scholarship Fund award for her passion and dedication to raising awareness of organ and tissue donation at the NJ Sharing Network\'s headquarters in New Providence. She plans to attend Holy Family University in Philadelphia in the fall, continuing to spread awareness in her community about organ donation to help educate others.
Scholarship applicants were measured on academic achievement, community and volunteer efforts, extracurricular activities and advocacy for organ and tissue donation. The application process included a thorough review by a committee of NJ Sharing Network Foundation Board members and volunteers.
The Betsy Niles Scholarship Fund was created in memory of Elizabeth "Betsy" Niles, a lifelong Montclair resident who passed away in 2011 after a tragic accident. Niles spent most of her career in educational publishing and was passionate about helping to improve the education system. Her organ and tissue donations aided over three dozen people, including a life-saving kidney transplant for one recipient.
Dan Sarnowski of Sparta, Niles\' loving companion, established The Betsy Niles Scholarship Fund in 2014. Sarnowski and Niles\' family decided the best way to honor Betsy was through supporting education programs.
"Betsy was known for always giving the perfect gift for every occasion and her last gift was the greatest gift of all - the gift of life," said Sarnowski in a statement. "I feel it\'s a perfect tribute to Betsy to have a fund and a scholarship program in her honor. Jessica serves as a perfect example of what it means to take an active role in supporting these important outreach efforts."
According to NJ Sharing Network, there are nearly 4,000 New Jersey residents currently waiting for a life-saving transplant. In fact, one New Jersey resident dies every three days waiting for a transplant, the organization says, with just one organ and tissue donor having the potential to save eight lives and enhance the lives of over 75 people.
