Basement Waterproofing in Hoboken

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 Hoboken:

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.

Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla opens campaign office, introduces slate for re-election

Incumbent Indian-American Mayor of Hoboken, N.J. Ravi Bhalla, announced the slate of candidates he would like voters to support in the run up to the Nov. 2 general elections. He also announced the opening of his campaign office at 404 Washington Street starting Monday, August 25, 2021, inviting every one to drop by, but to keep their masks on when they do.

Mayor Bhalla is the 39th Mayor of this city adjacent to the behemoth metropolis, New York City. He was the first Sikh to hold elected office in New Jersey and is the first directly elected Sikh to become Mayor in the United States, according to his bio. He was elected in 2017 after having served for 8 years on the Hoboken City Council.

Mayor Bhalla is credited with judiciously steering the City through the pandemic with low fatalities.

“While we’ve accomplished a great deal for Hoboken during my first term as Mayor, I know we can reach even greater heights in the years to come,” Bhalla said in his email blast. “But, in order to do so, I need a City Council that will put Hoboken first and work cooperatively with me to continue improving the quality of life for our residents,” he said.

On his #TeamBhalla ticket are Councilwoman Emily Jabbour, Councilman Jim Doyle, and first-time candidates Joe Quintero and Dini Ajmani.

“Together, they bring a combination of seasoned experience, new energy and professional backgrounds that will serve our City well,” Bhalla contends.

He urged constituents to sign the #TeamBhalla petition for all four of our team members to get on the ballot! Even though Councilwoman Jabbour and Mayor Bhalla are incumbents, “we still need to get enough petition signatures to qualify as candidates,” he noted, urging everyone to get their friends, neighbors and others to the petition, the filing deadline for which is Aug. 30, 2021.

In the city biography about his first term in office, the Hoboken City government website says that in the first few months Mayor Bhalla prioritized fiscal responsibility, introduced a City budget with no municipal tax increase, maintained the City’s AA+ credit rating, oversaw the rehabilitation of Washington Street, formed a Homelessness task force, pursued affordable housing strategies, completed the design phase of Northwest Resiliency Park, secured more than $1 million in state transportation funding, and signed executive orders to expand parental leave benefits, invest in the arts, and protect the civil rights of immigrants and the LGBTQ community.

Bhalla says with an eye to the future, his administration has over the last four years, been looking at ways to create sustainable, environmentally sound infrastructure improvements; beginning construction on the historic Northwest Resiliency Park; kicking off the Rebuild by Design flood protection project; renovating neighborhood parks, and proactively replacing aging water mains for the first time in decades; the Vision Zero pedestrian safety campaign; and a Climate Action Plan.

“And together, we made the tough choices that prioritized the health and safety of our community during a global health crisis, putting our citizens first while also working to protect the local businesses that are the heart of our community,” Mayor Bhalla says, describing Hoboken as being on the forefront in confronting the problems during the pandemic, and foresees his city will be “a regional and national leader in a post-pandemic world.”

Mayor Bhalla first set his roots in Hoboken at the age of 26, a bachelor fresh out of law school starting his first job at a small law firm in Newark, New Jersey.

A graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, where he received a B.A. in Political Psychology, Bhalla did his Master of Science from the London School of Economics (L.S.E.) in the United Kingdom specializing in Public Administration and Public Policy. He earned a Juris Doctor Degree from Tulane Law School in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Mayor Bhalla and his wife Bindya live on Garden Street with their two children, Arza Kaur and Shabegh Singh.

A Hoboken woman plans to bring single people together for a casual event this week to benefit charity, and they need more men to attend.

HOBOKEN, NJ — "I recently was having some conversations with single friends of mine living in Hoboken, and we all agree that we are so over dating apps and just want to meet potential matches in person," said Thea Zunick recently. "So I decided to use my 15-plus years of event planning experience to help out."

Zunick, who works with non-profits, launched a philanthropic speed dating and social mixer event that will be hosted at the Kolo Klub this Thursday.

The proceeds will benefit two organizations: Hudson County's Women Rising (domestic violence for women and families) and The Jed Foundation (a mental health and suicide prevention non-profit for teens and young adults).

You don't have to go with the intent of meeting someone to date — the money goes to charity, and you may make new single friends.

Zunick said she's gotten a lot of interest from "amazing women," but wants to spread the word so more men sign up. To balance it out, she's offering a $10 discount for men who sign up through Tuesday.

The age group is suggested 25-55. "I realize that there are a good number of divorced folks in Hoboken looking for their second love as well," she said, noting she heard from a few people over 40. "I have that on the Eventbrite page."

There will be coronavirus precautions in place (see details at the link).

Here are the details:

Location: Kolo Club (above the Biergarten on 15th Street)Date: Aug. 26Time: 7 p.m.Registration Fee: $35

What's included: The Kolo Club will provide 1 drink ticket (beer/wine) and a light appetizer for each registrant. Each participant will be entered into a chance to win a dinner date for two at the Hoboken Biergarten at a date/time of their choice (not to exceed a certain amount to be determined). There will be one winner chosen.

How long will the rains last in Hoboken after two days of flash flooding amid Tropical Storm Henri? See updates and photos here.

HOBOKEN, NJ — Hoboken saw a second day of flash flooding Sunday in parts of downtown and the west side of the city as Tropical Storm Sandi headed north (see photos below).

The flood watch continues for Hoboken until 8 p.m. Monday night, with rain expected much of that day as well.

Ferry company NY Waterway said its boats would be on a regular schedule Monday.

As of 1:25 p.m. Sunday, spotters for the National Weather Service said that 3.72 inches of rain had fallen in western Hoboken and 3.34 inches had fallen elsewhere. The forecast for Hoboken calls for additional "heavy rainfall" Sunday night. High tide in Hoboken is expected at 9:31 p.m. Sunday, which could increase flood potential.

Residents posted photos of flash flooding on social media Saturday night and then Sunday. (Saturday coverage: Flash Floods Pop Up Around Hoboken Again: Hurricane Henri Update)

City Issues Updates

The city issued two updates on Sunday, reminding residents not to try to drive through flash floods (which have proven fatal) or to wade or bike through them because they may contain sewage:

"The Office of Emergency Management continues to instruct residents, drivers, and pedestrians to avoid flooded areas. Flooded intersections contain rainwater and sewage. Do not drive or walk through floodwaters. Barricades have been deployed in flood-prone intersections. Please do not drive around barricades."

See the rest of the update, including garbage pickup information, discounted garage parking into Monday, and other storm details, here.

Flooded Last Month Too

Low-lying Hoboken is known to experience flooding during severe downpours; in fact, the city experienced flash floods twice last month as well as twice in July 2020. Last month, a flash flood trapped shoppers in a supermarket parking lot. READ MORE: Flash Flooding Traps Shoppers In Hoboken Lot

Streets That May Flood In Hoboken

Damaging winds could blow down trees and power lines, resulting in power outages. Please report power outages and downed wires to PSEG.

Residents should secure all loose objects outside or bring them inside, especially on balconies. Outdoor tents should be taken down depending on wind load.

Flooding is expected in flood prone intersections. Areas west of Bloomfield Street may experience street level flooding. The Office of Emergency Management is posting "No Parking Signs" in these areas, which should be taken as advisories. Cars will not be towed. Barricades will be deployed near flood-prone intersections. Please do not drive around barricades.

These intersections include:

Please report flooded intersections and clogged drain inlets by calling the NHSA Hotline at (866) 689-3970.

Flash Flooding

While some may consider flash floods just an inconvenience, these floods have proved fatal to drivers (sometimes trapping parents and children in their cars as water rises) and to children playing near small streams.

Locally, a flash flood near the Hoboken ShopRite before Tropical Storm Elsa last month temporarily stranded shoppers. READ MORE: Flash Flooding Traps Shoppers In Hoboken Lot

Severe storms are becoming more frequent. In fact, the current Hurricane Elsa in July 2021 was the earliest E-named storm in modern weather history.

Hoboken Hammered By Rain From Henri, More Accumulation Expected Into Monday

HOBOKEN, NJ - On Saturday night, Hurricane Henri hit Hoboken with a record high rainfall of 4.07 inches over a 4-hour period. And it showed, as perennial flood zones throughout the low-lying city of 60,000 on the Hudson River's alluvial plain at the base did what they tend to do in these all-too-common occurrences.

HOBOKEN, NJ - On Saturday night, Hurricane Henri hit Hoboken with a record high rainfall of 4.07 inches over a 4-hour period. And it showed, as perennial flood zones throughout the low-lying city of 60,000 on the Hudson River's alluvial plain at the base did what they tend to do in these all-too-common occurrences. But even by Hoboken flood standards, this one stood out—as the Mile Square City saw the most rain recorded in a single storm since 2016.

That storm continues through Sunday, with Flash Flood Warnings ongoing as Henri continues to impact the Northeast after making landfall in coastal Rhode Island, but is churning to the northwest and dumping an exceptionally large amount of precipitation on our region.

The flooding situation persists in Hoboken, with portions along the western edge of town seeing water rise throughout the late afternoon. The National Weather Service now says the storm may stall over our region and continue to bring rains into Monday, and has extended the flash flood warning in our area until 8:45 p.m.

"So far, Hoboken has received over 5 inches of rain and low-lying areas of the City are experiencing flooding," said a statement from the City of Hoboken, which acknowledged that flooding occurs when the City receives intense rain of more than 0.8 inches per hour. "The wet weather pump stations are operational and actively working to discharge water and mitigate flooding."

Hoboken's Office of Emergency Management continues to plead with residents, drivers, and pedestrians to avoid flooded areas. Not just rainwater, flooded intersections contain sewage, and barricades have been deployed in flood-prone intersections. Do not drive around barricades.

Given the amount of rain and the duration of the storm, other intersections that do not typically flood may see water accumulate, especially west of Park Avenue. Further complicating issues are the astronomical high tides coinciding with the full moon. The next high tide in Hoboken is 9:31 p.m., and will likely impede pumps from discharging flood water into the Hudson River.

Report flooded intersections and clogged drain inlets by calling the NHSA Hotline at (866) 689-3970.

"After Tropical Storm Henri moves out of the area, the Department of Environmental Services, Fire Department, and North Hudson Sewerage Authority will remove storm debris from roadways, parks, and public spaces," said the City of Hoboken. "Street cleaning will take place to assist in the removal of sewage from previously flooded streets and NHSA and the Department of Environmental Services will power wash areas that experienced sewer backups."

Garbage pick-up will occur Sunday night as scheduled. Residents should place receptacle bins by the curb after 7:30 p.m. Those in the limited business area should place bins at the curb after 9 p.m.

Please monitor local forecasts for additional advisories, watches, and warnings. Residents are encouraged to monitor the City’s Twitter (twitter.com/cityofhoboken) and Facebook (facebook.com/hoboken) or sign up to receive email or text updates by visiting www.hobokennj.gov/alerts.
