Basement Waterproofing in Freehold 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.

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:

  • 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 Freehold Township:

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.

Bell Works adds Vonage, as renamed Mack-Cali dumps office building business

HOLMDEL - Vonage, the business cloud communications company now a part of Swedish giant Ericsson, has moved its corporate headquarters a little over three miles to Bell Works, the historic former Bell Labs building.For more than a decade, Vonage has leased 23 Main St. in Holmdel, a 350,000-square-foot building and one of the largest office buildings at the Jersey Shore.

HOLMDEL - Vonage, the business cloud communications company now a part of Swedish giant Ericsson, has moved its corporate headquarters a little over three miles to Bell Works, the historic former Bell Labs building.

For more than a decade, Vonage has leased 23 Main St. in Holmdel, a 350,000-square-foot building and one of the largest office buildings at the Jersey Shore. While Vonage has subleased some space, it remains leased to the telecommunications company.

"Like many companies, in the past two years we have moved to a hybrid working environment and, to accommodate our rapidly growing company and the changing needs of our team members, we have recently moved our headquarters to the state-of-the-art Bell Works facility," a Vonage spokesperson said in a statement to What's Going There.

"The dynamic, creative and tech-focused space at Bell Works will allow us to continue to expand right here in New Jersey as we continue to work towards making Vonage a destination place to work," the spokesperson said.

The last time Vonage renewed its lease:Here's what led the company to stay in Holmdel in 2016

Vonage remains "committed to this community," the spokesperson said.

Somerset Development and its president, Ralph Zucker, converted the historic Bell Labs building into a 2-million-square-foot office and retail center, attracting employers such as iCIMS, Jersey Central Power & Light, WorkWave and IFF.

Bell Works:WorkWave thrived through pandemic; do NJ tech companies need to go back to the office?

The move is not the only change at Vonage. Last month, telecommunications equipment maker Ericsson completed its acquisition of Vonage Holdings.

Meanwhile, Veris Residential, the owner of 23 Main St., has lined up a buyer for Vonage's former headquarters. The company, formerly known as Mack-Cali Corp., said the building, and a Hyatt Hotel in Jersey City, are under contract to sell for a total $132.25 million. The names of the buyers, and the sales price for each building, were not disclosed.

The sale of the 88-acre Holmdel property, which sits between Route 34 and Holmdel Road, represents the last of the company's suburban office buildings. It shed the rest of its office portfolio around New Jersey, which have included buildings and office parks in Neptune, Freehold Township, Middletown and Wall.

In December 2021, Mack-Cali changed its name to Veris Residential in a move to focus on multifamily properties in urban and transit markets like Jersey City.

These school administrators make between $150K and $300K per year. See which leaders in your local school district made the list.

NEW JERSEY — More than 2,500 educational administrators in the state made salaries of $150,000 or more during the past school year, according to data from the New Jersey Department of Education. Three were paid double, while 22 earned at least $250,000.

Patch pulled salary data that includes superintendents, principals and other employees in administrative positions — down to assistant principals — within New Jersey schools. Out of roughly 8,400 people who fit the description, 2,556 of them made $150,000 or more.

It's becoming increasingly common for school administrators in New Jersey to make that much. In 2011, then-Gov. Chris Christie implemented a $175,000 cap for superintendents. The Christie administration raised their maximum base pay to $191,584 in 2017.

But Gov. Phil Murphy signed a law in 2019 that eliminates the cap for superintendent salaries but set guidelines for school-executive contracts to limit or standardize bonuses and other perks.

Some of the state's highest-paid superintendents — especially those in more affluent districts — received generous pay increases in the past year, according to analysis from NJ Advance Media. For instance, the salary for the superintendent of the 700-student Demarest district increased almost 50 percent, from $153,967 to $228,477. Millburn's superintendent went from a salary of $167,500 to $228,477, according to NJ Advance Media's report.

School-executive pay has long been a controversial subject in both local school district budgeting and state policy. While administrative salaries are often a flashpoint for criticism in school policy, many districts struggled to maintain experienced superintendents when the position's pay was capped, according to a 2019 analysis from NJ Spotlight.

Superintendents, principals and other school leaders throughout the nation have faced intense scrutiny for COVID-19 management and from politically charged movements to overhaul or eliminate certain subjects and topics from the curriculum. But those obstacles have also fallen to teachers and other rank-and-file school employees. And New Jersey has faced a shortage of teaching candidates that preceded the pandemic.

The 2020-21 season came to a crushing ending last fall when the Panthers fell to Scotch Plains-Fanwood in the state sectional tournament.

Press release from the Bridgewater-Raritan Regional School District.

BRIDGEWATER, NJ —A painful memory of the past will provide a motivation that could result in an enjoyable memory in the future.

That is what the dreams are for the girls’ soccer players at Bridgewater-Raritan Regional High School this coming season.

The 2020-2021 season came to a crushing ending on that warm and sunny November 9 afternoon when Bridgewater-Raritan and Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School battled through a scoreless regulation and two overtimes to determine what team would go on to the championship game in the North Jersey, Section 2, Group 4 state sectional tournament.

The winner would be determined by penalty kicks–that Scotch Plains-Fanwood would eventually win by a 3-2 score. The Union County team then went on to meet rival Westfield High School in the state sectional title game while the Bridgewater-Raritan players were left to feel the sting of having their season come to a close on their own turf field.

But that bitter defeat has served as a motivator to this current Bridgewater-Raritan group of players and their coach, Sean Casey.

“We keep thinking about that season-ending loss to Scotch Plains-Fanwood,” said one of the senior captains, Caitlin Dzuroska, a forward/back. “We have something to prove this year. We want to finish our senior year strong.”

Midfielder Amnda Winchock, another captain, felt the same as her classmate.“We really want to end our senior year on a good note," Winchock added.

The defeat in the state sectional semifinals to Scotch Plains-Fanwood, which then lost to Westfield, which then went on to win the overall Group 4 state championship and finish the year as the top-ranked team in all of New Jersey, can not overshadow what was a very successful fall of 2021 at Bridgewater-Raritan.

The Panthers claimed their fourth straight Somerset County Tournament championship and closed with a 12-4–3 record.

“The girls told me that they want to repeat as the county champion,” said Casey, who is in his second year as the head skipper of the school’s girls’ team. “We have a tremendous legacy here.”

Four players off of last year's unit are presently playing on the collegiate level, according to Casey, who had previously served as the freshman boys’ soccer coach for nine years at Bridgewater-Raritan.

“We are confident because we have a nice blend of soccer players," Casey claimed.

He also pointed out that a fierce schedule also includes two other teams in North Jersey, Section 2, Group 4 that were county champions a season ago. Besides the Panthers who won Somerset County, Westfeld won Union County and Hunterdon Central Regional High School captured the Hunterdon-Warren-Sussex crown.

“We will be battle tested," Casey said as he also reported that the Panthers will meet up this season with Freehold Township High School, which fell to Westfield in the Group 4 state title game last fall.

Midfielder Annie Clapp, the other senior captain, is optimistic that she and her teammates can overcome a rugged schedule. She felt that the younger players have the potential to step up and thrive.

“We are a pretty young team but we are working hard and we are staying positive,” said Clapp, who is headed to Drexel University next year. “We have super technicians and we are super quick. We will be better than people expect.”

The three captains will team with senior classmates, forwards Kaelyn Corbitt, Maryjo Santana and Bridget Sweet, backs Natalie Gaunt, Sara Hoffman, Chloe Ly, Brianna Reimann and Kaitlyn Trebino and goalie Olivia Peters.

The underclassmen who will contribute are juniors, forward Sophia Maslo, midfielders Aubrey Bartolotto and Sara Bengali, backs Skylar Leung and Andriana Minerva and goalie Sophie Mendoza, sophomores, midfielders Audra Day, Grace Drumgool and Audrey Martinho and freshmen, forward Kayla Davidson and midfielder Reese Reimann.

“With our schedule we may take some licks, but we will give some out, too,” Casey predicted.
