Basement Waterproofing in Fair Haven

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 Fair Haven:

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.

What to watch for: In this division, don’t count anybody out. That includes Red Bank Regional, which is only in its second season under Shane Fallon, the man who built Rumson-Fair Haven into the power it is today. Fallon’s to-do list is lengthy and its starts with being more consistent on both sides of the ball. Red Bank returns enough — eight starters each on offense and defense — to believe it will be in the divisional title mix. It’s no surprise RBR will be athletic. What needs to develop is discipline — a Fallon trademark during his RFH tenure. RBR returns three linemen on both ides of the ball — juniors Nick Gandolfo, Brendon Jervert and Griffin Egan. Senior Pierce Olsen will be the starter at QB with two experienced backs with him — juniors Ja’Cire Jones and Gunnar Eckerstrom. Also back are wide receivers Ky’Yam Martin and Lamar Hicks. The Bucs will be strong int he secondary with four regulars returning, however, it will be starting with three, new linebackers. In 2022, the RBR staff isn’t introducing new packages and terminology. It’s not evaluating players not the fly. Those two things alone make RBR a better team. After a nondivisional opener against Monmouth, Red Bank has four-consecutive divisional games against Brick Memorial, Toms River South, Brick Township and Neptune. By the middle of October, Red Bank will either be in or out of the divisional title hunt.

It’s going to get hotter in Atlantic City as famed TV chef and restaurateur Gordon Ramsey opens up his famous TV restaurant Hell’s Kitchen at Caesars in Atlantic City. The new restaurant began taking reservations this weekend, (starting Friday, Sept. 2).

This is the first Hell’s Kitchen restaurant on the East Coast and Gordon’s third restaurant in Atlantic City. He has Gordon Ramsey Steak in Harrah’s and Gordon Ramsey Pub & Grill at Caesars.

The smartly decorated restaurant can seat 233 on three levels with every table in the restaurant having a clear view of the massive kitchen inspired completely from the TV show Hell’s Kitchen. The executive chef will be the winner of season 21 of the show.

The menu at the restaurant will feature some of the dishes made famous by the Hell’s Kitchen TV show including beef wellington, lobster risotto and seared scallops. The bar will have some classic and signature cocktails that will be a great way to start your evening.

I am a fan of Gordon Ramsey and a fan of the show Hell’s Kitchen although sometimes there are dramatic sub plots on the show that take away from the reality of cooking great dishes. As a guy who likes to cook, I enjoy seeing how the contestants on Hell’s Kitchen approach their recipes and hone their skills.

Gordon pulls no punches and is a tyrant in the kitchen when things don’t go well. Gordon’s disposition is what makes the show enjoyable and that creates minor pins and needles moments when the contestants mess up an order or direction that they are given.

If they mess up, the wrath of Gordon Ramsey comes raining down, hence Hell’s Kitchen.

Gordon Ramsey currently has 15 restaurants here in North America, with an additional 43 restaurants around the world, that’s an incredible number.

His staff overlooking the quality and operations of all of Gordon’s restaurants do a good job in making sure that all the Gordon Ramsey restaurants are up to his high standards. Check out Hell’s Kitchen in Atlantic City. Sounds like a great experience.

The post above reflects the thoughts and observations of New Jersey 101.5 weekend host Big Joe Henry. Any opinions expressed are Big Joe’s own.

THE PHENOMENAL JERSEY SHORE RESTAURANTS WE CAN’T AFFORD TO LOSE

Vic's is a longtime, family-run standby for Italian standards, including thin-crust pizzas with homemade dough. Vic's antipasto is nothing to laugh at either.

A family run restuarant, Drew's never disappoints. Their Cajun spin on dishes always leaves diners satisfied. The water views make Drew's a must.

BURGER 25 | TOMS RIVER

Burger 25 has reinvented the hamburger at the Jersey Shore. Burger 25 was so slammed 24/7, that they moved to a bigger location on Rt. 37 to serve up their signature burger recipes and shakes.

PETE & ELDA'S AND CARMEN'S PIZZARIA | NEPTUNE CITY

I challenge you to find a better thin crust pizza in America. Pete & Elda's has become a Jersey Shore attraction. They're no frills inside, but that's part of the charm. How many P&E t-shirts do you have?

The only thing better than the views of the Atlantic is the food. Steaks cooked to perfection, seafood to die for, and cocktails that hit the spot as you watch the waves.

Winners of the 94.3 The Point 'Best Pizza at the Jersey Shore' award numerous times, Squan Tavern is a family owned landmark. The setting is always friendly and the food always leaves you smiling.

Asbury Park is known for its excellent restaurant scene. Brando's is part of that reputation. Their modern setup with movies playing over the bar is a nice touch. Brando's filet will blow you away.

GRAZIANO'S | PT. PLEASANT

When it comes to Italian restaurants, the Jersey Shore certainly doesn't have a shortage. Graziano's has a very homey old-school feel. Their food is traditional and oh so good.

The staff at Antonio's treats you like family. But, that's not the only reason this Manasquan hot spot is so popular. The food is consistantly delicious. Antonio's is also a popular spot for showers and group celebrations.

THE ARK | PT. PLEASANT

The Ark is the prime example of a hometowm 'watering hole.' The interior is rustic and comfy. The port wine burger is one of my favorites.

Jersey Shore residents know when it comes to authentic Irish cuisine, Kelly's Tavern is the go-to. Try the corned beef and shepard's pie. Kelly's also makes a reubin that will knock your socks off.

The Butter Buscuit is a unique place that takes daytime eating to another level. If you haven't had a french toast breakfast at The Buttered Buscuit, you're missing out. True to the name, their buscuits are crazy good.

My Kitchen Witch has cornered the 'witch-themed' market. This daytime restaurant is a tourist attraction, but popular with locals as well. They do dinner on Friday nights. I don't know what they do to their bacon that makes it so tasty, but I could eat a plateful.

Jersey Fresh Produce is already starting to come to market

Passing the Torch: 2022 Rumson-Fair Haven High School Football Preview

For a program that has been among the most stable and consistent in the Shore Conference over the past decade, it was very fitting of Rumson-Fair Haven to undergo a coaching change that required little to no adjustment in scheme, approach, and familiarity.

Championship-winning and Hall of Fame-worthy head coach Jerry Schulte stepped down in April and it was his son, Jeremy, who was tabbed as his successor. Jeremey Schulte was Rumson's defensive coordinator for the past several seasons under his father and an RFH assistant before that when his dad was the Bulldogs' DC. Now, they have switched roles with Jerry moving back to coordinate the defense.

For the players, it's been a seamless transition.

"We all love coach Schulte so it’s not much of a change," said senior safety Beau Kemler. "The standard has been set at Rumson by them, all the former coaches and players, and everyone in the community."

Most of the coaching staff remains intact, as well, which bodes well for a season in which Rumson will be breaking in several new starters after graduating a ton of exceptional players from a team that went 9-2 and reached the South Jersey Group 3 final. Gone are SSN Defensive Player of the Year John Lista, fellow star linebacker Ryan McKay, All-Shore defensive end Aiden Moriarty, quarterback Colin Kennedy, running back Geoff Schroeder, and all five starting offensive linemen. That's a lot to replace, no doubt, but Rumson has proven time after time that it can rebuild on the fly and barely miss a beat.

Just three starters return in the Bulldogs' multiple offense: senior wide receiver Scott Venancio, junior wide receiver Nick Rigby, and junior tight end Markus Brown, who moves over from wide receiver. Venancio was the team's leading receiver last season with 10 catches for 215 yards and three touchdowns. The rest of the roster is talented but relatively inexperienced at the varsity level.

Senior Nick Costello looks to take the reins of the offense at quarterback with junior Jackson Gallagher and sophomore Owen O'Toole also competing at the position. The running backs are juniors Alastair Orr and Griffin Kolb along with senior Brayden Dill.

Rumson has a recent history of impactful tight ends, and this year's group certainly has size that jumps off the page. Brown, who is 6-foot-7, moves to tight end from wide receiver, and senior Will Rehder is 6-foot-6. The 'short' guy of the group is senior Mashall Halfacre, who is only 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds. Halfacre was having a very good season on defense last season before a serious leg injury ended his season.

Rumson's senior-laden offensive line was a strength last season but is certainly a question mark entering this year with five new starters. Rumson offensive line coach Joe Murphy is one of the best in the business so it wouldn't be surprising at all to see this unit come together quickly. Senior Spencer Branin (6-4, 270) is at left tackle, senior Julien Devlin (5-11, 225) and junior Luke Marascio (6-0, 210) are working at left guard, junior Will Timpone (6-0, 215) is the center, junior Caden Winters (6-0, 245) and sophomore Matt Smith (6-1, 215) are at right guard, and junior James Sharkey (6-1, 250) will play right tackle.

Rumson had the No. 1 scoring defense in the Shore last season allowing a minuscule 6.8 points per game with four shutouts. Graduation took four of the team's top-five tacklers and its top-two sack leaders, however. There is a lot of production to replace, and while we don't yet know who will step up to do so, recent history suggests someone will indeed take up the mantle as Rumson's next All-Shore level defensive player(s).

Five starters return in the Bulldogs' 4-2-5 defense with three along the defensive line and two in the secondary. Halfacre is healthy again and back at defensive end along with Brown, Rehder, and junior Will Tenzca. Devlin and junior Cooper Bunnell (68 tackles) are returning starters at defensive tackle with senior Justin Kuo and Winters also in the mix.

Replacing Lista and McKay at linebacker is a tall task and the Bulldogs will call on senior Jack Thomas, sophomore Austin Kiernan, and junior Reid Elsas to man the linebacker positions. The secondary features five players with the two strong safeties sometimes walking into the box to play as linebackers. Seniors John Connors and Zach Iwan and junior Danny Cook are at cornerback with seniors Kemler (3 INTs) and Ryan Kalman returning as starters at strong safety. The free safety position has seniors Luke Mikolajczyk and Luke Jamin working at the position.

On special teams, seniors Oli Lorraine and Dominic Panke and junior Ryan Child are competing for the kicking and punting jobs.

Rumson won the American Division last year by defeating Donovan Catholic, Wall, Colts Neck, and Toms River North. The Bulldogs remain in the American Division, which is even tougher this year with Red Bank Catholic, Donovan Catholic, Middletown South, Manalapan, and Wall on the schedule. The Bulldogs also have a tough nondivisonal game against Toms River North at Rutgers to open their season.

Venancio is one of the few returning offensive players with varsity experience and is looking to build off a junior season in which he caught 10 passes for 215 yards and three touchdowns.

Bunnell made 68 tackles as a sophomore last season and with Rumson's defensive leaders from a season ago having graduated, he has a chance to step to the forefront and become a dominant presence.

Charlie Volker, Matt Vecchiarelli, Peter Lucas, Alex Maldjian, John Volker, Geoff Schroeder. The last six Rumson running backs have all been All-Shore level players. Can Orr continue the tradition?

Any time the Bulldogs and Caseys meet it's a big deal, and this year's game, which takes place in Week 8, could be contested with the American Division title on the line. RBC won last season's meeting, 21-14, in front of a standing-room-only crowd at RFH's Borden Stadium.

RFH Boys Soccer Team Looking to Defend Group Title

Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School’s boys’ soccer team stepped out of the shadows and into the championship limelight in 2021. The Bulldogs captured the program’s first-ever NJSIAA Central Jersey Group II crown, overcoming their long-time nemesis Holmdel, 2-1, in the championship final. Battling their one-sided history against the Hornets as well as Holmdel’s own championship pedigree, RFH did not bend in the final defeating the defending champions in overtime on Alec Pentikis’ goal. The enthusiasm from that state sectional has not worn off at all. In fact, it has the RFH program right where Head Coach Jeff Soares wants it.

“It seems like the whole town is excited,” said Soares. “Eighty-six players tried out – the most ever. It was a dream of mine to have the kids inspired to stay in the program.”

Winning will do that, and Rumson did a lot of winning last fall, starting with their Shore Conference A Central Division title. The Bulldogs were unbeaten in conference play and topped defending champion Holmdel for the title. They finished the season with an 11-6-3 record. That regular season crown was followed by their run to the CJ II championship, again topping the Hornets. That state sectional victory has given this year’s team momentum it is feeding off.

The 2022 Bulldogs will be built around two of conference’s finest players, Pentikis and Antonio Santos, the two goal scorers in the sectional final. It was Luke and Alec Pentikis who were the face of Rumson soccer while the program was moving forward. Luke, a four-year starter, has graduated while Alec, a forward, is back for his fourth year. He has led the Bulldogs in goal scoring in each of his three seasons (16 last year). He was the top junior in the Shore Conference last fall.

“Alec is the guy we will be leaning on to put the ball in the back of the net,” said Soares, who added that Pentikis could be the best player in the Shore this season.

Santos missed part of last season due to injury, and when he returned, Rumson took off. Like Alec Pentikis, he shined bright in the postseason. The midfielder finished 2021 with seven goals and six assists.

“Antonio does it all,” remarked Soares. “He has great vision.”

As a freshman, Ronan Hogg showed great potential. Coming back bigger and stronger this year, Soares noted, Hogg will play an important role on offense helping to provide scoring balance. Junior Declan Fry, a lockdown defensive midfielder, and senior center back Reece Moroney will be the key figures on defense for Rumson. Junior Liam Bennett, who was utility player in ’21, will have a more significant role at midfield this year.

Looking ahead to the 2022 campaign, Soares cited one difference: the schedule. He has beefed up his non-division schedule significantly, including a game with St. Benedict’s, which is the No. 2-ranked high school team in the country, to have his team prepared for the defense of its CJ championship.

“I want them to be battle-tested,” Soares explained.

There is something else that will be special about the season to Soares. This will be his fourth year at the helm of the program, and these seniors will be the first class that has been with him from start to finish. They paved the way for Rumson, which had won just one game the season before Soares took over.

Rockville Centre, N.Y. (8/31/22) The Dominican University New York men's soccer team played to a 2-2 tie with the Lions of Molloy University.

The Chargers now hold a record of 0-1-1 and the Lions now stand at 1-0-2 overall on the season.

The game was scoreless until the final minute of the first half. Gio Fabiano scored the first goal of the game with less than one minute to play in the first half to give the Lions a 1-0 lead. Jonas Jacobsen recorded an assist on the goal.

Dominican scored two goals in the second half after trailing 1-0 at halftime. Armando Morales (Jupiter, Fla.) scored at the 48:06 mark when he scored on a cross from Lucas Regos Santos (Sao Paulo, Brazil) who earned the assist on the tying goal.
