Basement Waterproofing in Hazlet

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 Hazlet:

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.

California creators of Haunt O' Ween NJ expect thousands to visit this first East Coast expansion of all things Halloween in Holmdel.

HOLMDEL, NJ — Haunt O' Ween NJ will land in Holmdel on the Bell Works grounds starting this Friday, Sept. 30, and stay through Halloween, organizers say.

Hundreds of thousands of guests are expected to enjoy over 200,000 square feet of "the most over-the-top, spooky fun, and authentic Halloween environments in the entire country," creators of the experience say.

The California-based event has chosen New Jersey to begin its national expansion, they say. There will be the original "Southern Cal" event going on too, the creators say.

The Experiential Supply Co., an experiential productions and attractions company, and Fever, the global entertainment discovery platform, are behind the New Jersey event.

Haunt O' Ween's "epic concept" is one of the first in the country to put the entire holiday on display in one place - in one "vast and unique" format, according to a news release from the organizers.

Comprised of nine distinct and wholly immersive worlds, Haunt O' Ween NJ lets guests adventure "through the massive grounds with thousands of photo ops, over 25 live character performers that they can engage and interact with, face painting, rides, games, trick-or-treating, dancing, and more."

There is no time limit, so guests are welcome to stay for hours and enjoy all the ghoulish mayhem, they add.

Specialized attractions include:

Tickets start at $40. Tickets can be purchased at www.hauntoween.com.

Here are some other things to know if you plan to go, according to the Bell Works Events site:

Some elements of the experience include:

"We've worked very hard this year to put on the country's largest and most magical Halloween experience for all ages. Over 200,000 square feet of immersive thematics flooded with interactivity, all built on the foundation of Halloween – trick-or-treating, pumpkins, costumes, and spooky fun," said Jasen Smith, Experiential Supply founder and chief experience officer.

"We cannot wait to welcome thousands of families in the Southern Cal and New Jersey area this year to our massive creation," he added.

The company explained how it came to be in the Halloween business:

Experiential Supply puts on large scale experiences for film studios in Hollywood. From themed interactive screenings to multimillion-dollar micro theme parks to promote theatrical releases, the events were always free to attend and promotional in nature, the company said.

Haunt O' Ween grew from pandemic restrictions in 2020.

"The original experience was designed as a drive-thru in the Los Angeles area to make sure kids could still trick or treat. Cars would drive from house to house (that were built by the company) and candy was quite literally dumped into their cars," the company statement said.

Similarly crafted Southern California-based events are their Christmas Wonderland and Sugar Rush - a candy-inspired Wonka-like world.

In 2021, Haunt O' Ween transformed into an in-person format, focusing on the engaging nature of Halloween and immersing guests in a myriad of activities. Over 100,000 attendees received over 3,000,000 pieces of candy, the company says.

Bringing the event to New Jersey in 2022 is part of its plan to offer this type of complete immersion to Halloween fans everywhere.

"This is about families having a safe and incredibly fun place to enjoy the holiday and there's just nothing like it," said Smith.

For a taste of what Haunt O' Ween NJ has to offer, check out this video.

There will be food and beverages available so that families can enjoy a full night out, organizers say.

Past sponsorships include FX - "What We Do in The Shadows," Warner Bros. Pictures, "The Witches," KiwiCo, Happy Dad Hard Seltzer, Malibu Wines, and "The Addams Family 2."

Here is more about the companies behind Haunt O' Ween:

Experiential Supply creates large-scale, immersive experiences for such big budget movies as "IT: Chapter 2," "Ready Player One," "The LEGO Movie," "Smallfoot", and more.

Fever is a global, live-entertainment discovery platform, helping millions of people every week to discover the best experiences in their cities, "with a mission to democratize access to culture and entertainment in real life," immersive exhibitions, interactive theatrical experiences and festivals, among other events.

House Fire Response Criticized By Former Holmdel Deputy Mayor

Prakash Santhana, who lives on Barbera Drive where a house burned down last week, called for a "formal investigation" of the fire response.

HOLMDEL, NJ —A major fire at 10 Barbera Drive on Sept. 21 left the family homeless and prompted former Deputy Mayor Prakash Santhana to call for an investigation into how the fire response was handled.

Santhana, who also lives on the street, asked the Township Committee Tuesday night to conduct a "formal investigation" and to respond to his concerns at the next Township Committee meeting.

Santhana questioned the response time of the fire department.

He said his neighbors called in the emergency at 9:38 p.m. but the first pumper truck from Holmdel Fire & Rescue Co. #2, 12 Crawfords Corner Road, arrived at 9:53 p.m., based on his home video record.

"Why did it take 15 minutes to go 4.4 miles," he asked.

The volunteer Holmdel Fire and Rescue Company #2 operates three engines, and a tower ladder, the company's website says. It has responded to 312 calls so far this year, the site says.

There was no one immediately available from the company to respond to Santhana's questions.

Santhana said a ladder truck was at the scene but was idle for several minutes "while the fire raged inside the property."

When it did engage, he said he saw water was first being trained at the base of a tree and that water pressure appeared to be a problem. He said it also took "several minutes" to maneuver the ladder through the trees.

That prompted specific questions from Santhana:

Members of the Monmouth County Fire Marshall’s Office have taken the lead on the investigation of the fire and the cause is still under investigation, according to township fire marshal David Olsen, fire official/fire sub-code official.

Santhana said it seems to have started in the area of the whole house generator.

A gas line to the generator was feeding the fire, according to Santhana, and the fire was so hot "the embers were going over our neighboring homes."

The fire crew had to wait for a NJ Natural Gas crew to shut off gas line, so Santhana asked if fire crews can be trained to shut off a gas line in the event of a similar emergency.

Deputy Mayor DJ Luccarelli said all of Santhana's questions would "definitely" be taken into consideration and the committee "will have them looked at."

Meanwhile, Santhana said a chat group for the family is collecting money for a gift card and another group is discussing setting up a meal train to help the family at 10 Barbera Drive.

The township saw another fire this week - a fire at a detached garage at 294 Middle Road. The cause of that fire is under investigation by members of the Holmdel Bureau of Fire Prevention and members of the Monmouth County Fire Marshall’s Office, Olsen said. That fire was contained to the garage.

Hazlet's Flat Creek Desnagging, Stream Clearing To Begin

Hazlet's Flat Creek, slated to be de-snagged for better water flow. Runs from Route 36 in Hazlet almost to Holmdel near GSP.

HAZLET, NJ: Got snags? Work is slated to begin to clear and de-snag the 1.8 mile Flat Creek waterway in Hazlet Township sometime in the first or second week of November. A report commissioned by the Township Committee in March 2022 identified several major areas as concern along the waterway in need of stream cleaning. The project was previously announced to begin early November, but the start date has since been revised to begin a week or two later.

So what is de-snagging? It's removing accumulated debris from within the waterway to improve water flow. Improving waterflow is healthier for everyone, except maybe the mosquitos, who love stagnant waters. In addition to mosquito control, helping the water to flow more freely also reduces the potential for flooding during rainstorms.

The actual work will be done by Monmouth County Public Works crews with the assistance of the Monmouth County Mosquito Control Division and is expected to take several days to complete. Although a majority of the stream is behind private properties, the County will be able to access the creek via public land and rights-of-way.

“This is the first step in the process of addressing the flooding issues within the Flat Creek area," said Mayor Michael Sachs. "I would like to thank our Engineer and Monmouth County for working together on this project for Hazlet Township. Once this process is complete, we will then be able to survey the area to determine the next course of action.”

The 1,115-acre Flat Creek Watershed extends southerly from Route 36 in Hazlet to nearly the Garden State Parkway in Holmdel.

HAZLET, NJ — We all know student athletes who also bring their A-game to other parts of their lives.

Here at Patch, we've launched an initiative to help recognize these heroes making a difference in their communities. We’re working to let all your neighbors know the individual stories behind the leaderboard.

This submission comes from Katie who nominated her son Tommy. Tommy is not only a naturally gifted athlete, but connects with his community through coaching and volunteer activities, Katie says.

Star student athlete’s home state

New Jersey

Star student athlete’s Patch town

Hazlet

How do you know the star student athlete?

Son

What sport does the star student athlete play?

Football

Why do you believe the star student athlete should be recognized?

Tommy has been an exceptional human since the day he was born. He is blessed with athletic skill and strength, but more importantly, he is blessed with a wonderful, caring and empathetic spirit.

Now a high school junior, he spends his afternoons and evenings working hard on the football field and in the gym. But on the weekends, he spends quality time with his family, telling jokes and making us all smile.

He also volunteers as an assistant coach for the local Hazlet Youth Athletic League's (HYAL) 7U flag football team. Many times, after a big varsity game, Tommy will take the time to high-five or take pictures with the young athletes from HYAL, who look up to him as a mentor.

He is currently enrolled in his high school's early childhood development program, with the goal to connect with and teach pre-k students. He truly has a gift when it comes to making these young ones feel special and seen.

He also spends the holiday season volunteering at the RAINE foundation, where he helps collect, organize and deliver toys for local families in need.

As an underclassman athlete, he has been part of the Rockets varsity team since his sophomore year. Now as a junior and OL/DL player, he is considered a leader of his team. He received the award as overall MVP of his freshman team as well, an honor not regularly presented to a lineman.

His parents, his teachers and his coaches are all continually amazed and his ability to connect with his classmates and his community.

What's one thing you want everyone to know about the star student athlete?

Tommy is a young man who truly cares about his friends and family. He is everyone's friend and goes out of his way to make others feel special.

Keep up the great work, Tommy!

Patch is asking candidates for local school boards to share their views on the issues. Lisa Brown of Hazlet presents her ideas.

HAZLET, NJ — Lisa Brown is one of four candidates seeking election to one of the three full-term seats on the Hazlet Board of Education in the Nov. 8 general election.

In these profiles, based on questions provided, the candidates give voters background about themselves and their positions on the issues. Patch is publishing individual profiles leading up to the election.

Brown is facing three incumbents on the school board, and she said she would preserve its "conservative approach." She is particularly concerned about bullying. "I have seen first hand where bullying continues to happen in the district and we need to have a strict policy on what is and is not acceptable and adhere to it," she said.

Read more about candidate Lisa Brown:

Name: Lisa Brown

Age: 46

Town of residence: Hazlet

Position sought: Board of Education

Are you an incumbent or have previous school board or civic experience? No

Do you have a campaign designation or slate? No

Family: Married 20 years, two daughters ages 12 and 8

Education: Associate's degree in Business Administration

Occupation: Inside sales manager

Why do you want to run for the school board and what in your experience or background prepares you for election:

I decided to run when I heard about the new health and sex education curricula the State of New Jersey had passed. There is a very progressive agenda being pushed on our children and I am not ok with it. So, if you want change, you need to take responsibility and act.

As for my experience on a board, I do not have any. I am a concerned parent who wants what’s best for the children in our great town. However, I lead a team of 20 sales representatives and love what I do. I enjoy leading, coaching and developing people. And I’m never afraid to stand up for what I think is right for the team. It would be my honor to stand up for what’s right for our children.

Name what you see as the top issues currently facing your district and how you plan to address them. These can be local issues and/or statewide issues:

As I talk to parents in town, they tell me stories about their children being bullied and how they are worried about their mental health. These parents are desperate for help. I have seen first hand where bullying continues to happen in the district and we need to have a strict policy on what is and is not acceptable and adhere to it.

It breaks my heart to hear these stories. The last thing we need is another tragedy where a young, beautiful life is taken away too soon. All our children should feel safe going to school every day.

As for the health and sexual education curriculum, I think Hazlet did a great job with how they are implementing it. The state requires we teach it, but each district can implement it as they see fit.

What changes or improvements do you see for the district that could enhance educational life and is there a way you might accomplish that?:

If elected, I would continue to preserve the conservative approach our district has towards our children's education. I would encourage parents to come to the meetings and talk about the things that are effecting their families so we could work on them together to make effective change that is positive and rewarding for all.

Candidates for Hazlet Board of Education:

Full Term - Vote for Three
