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 Hockhockson:
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
- Floor and wall crack repair

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

Jon Stewart has never been shy about his love for his home state of New Jersey. On Wednesday, April 22, he is opening his home (virtually) to millions of viewers for the Jersey 4 Jersey concert to raise money for New Jersey’s efforts in battling the COVID-19 pandemic. Here is what we know about where he and his wife Tracey McShane call home.
Jon Stewart’s House
Not only are our animal caregivers smart and kind, they are also incredibly creative and the best dang gift-givers around!!! #treasures!
Since retiring from The Daily Show, Stewart has dedicated his life to helping abused and neglected animals. In 2015, Stewart, his wife Tracey, and their two children, Nathan and Maggie, turned Bufflehead Farm, the 12-acre estate in Middleton, New Jersey, where the family lives, into an animal sanctuary. The first residents were four pigs, according to the New York Times.
Then in 2016, the Stewarts bought another farm, the Hockhockson Farm in Colts Neck, New Jersey, and turned it into another animal sanctuary. This 45-acres property took a while to get approval from the township officials to be turned into an animal sanctuary, but eventually, it did and the Stewarts couldn’t have been happier.
I’m just really pleased, not just with the outcome but also with the process of creating a project that would be amenable to what they do, but would still honor the spirit of the project,” Jon told NJ.com at the time. “I thought the process itself was approached in a way in that really gave us great comfort in the investment of time and money we were making into the community.”
On their Facebook page called The Daily Squeal, Tracey recently revealed that Hockhockson Farm is expanding to include “The Fields,” which are 11 acres of growing fields. The aims are to “nourish our community by providing local, healthy produce to those in need, educate people to the benefits of practicing kindness to animals, the earth, and one’s health through promotion of a whole-food, plant-based diet, and inspire a sense of community through shared farming and a spirit of giving back. We will be donating our sustainably-grown fruits and vegetables to Lunch Break as part of our new Farm to Every Table program,” according to the website.
The Jersey 4 Jersey Concert
The concert starts at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Wednesday, April 22. The event will raise money for the NJPRF (New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund) and will also honor those battling the virus on the front lines, like healthcare workers, first responders and other essential employees, according to the official site.
This special evening will feature New Jersey’s biggest champions and celebrities participating from their homes, including Saquon Barkley, Tony Bennett, Jon Bon Jovi, Danny DeVito, Whoopi Goldberg, Halsey, Chelsea Handler, Charlie Puth, Kelly Ripa, Chris Rock, Bruce Springsteen, Jon Stewart, SZA and more. This recognition of New Jersey’s strength and character will also include first-hand accounts from front-line workers and citizens impacted by the pandemic.
“These are uncertain times. What is for certain is the pain, the fear, and the real needs of many of our neighbors, our friends and certainly all of those on the front lines,” says Bruce Springsteen in a preview video, adding, “We are practicing some social distancing, we are staying at home … we need to pull together and start the healing at home. So please, help the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund.”
Jersey 4 Jersey kicks off Wednesday, April 22 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.

See UPDATE below
Comedian Jon Stewart appears to have ended his time as a Red Bank dual homeowner.
The comedian and political commentator has a buyer for the second of the two side-by-side mansions on the Navesink River that he and his wife, Tracey Stewart, owned in town, according to a recent filing with the Monmouth County Clerk.
As reported last month by redbankgreen, the onetime Daily Show host sold the house he owned at Alston Court for $5.3 million.
A notice of settlement filed October 1, indicates a contract for the second house, at 55 Fisher Place. No price is stated. [UPDATE: A deed dated October 8 and filed with the county put the price at $3.7 million.]
The Stewarts owned the property through an entity called Red Bank River Trust; the buyers are identified as Peter and Rae Glazman of Bal Harbour, Florida.
The two houses are side-by-side at the ends of parallel streets. They represented a combined $7 million investment, before improvements, the Stewarts made in late 2009 and early 2010. It’s unknown how much the Stewarts, who own the 11-acre Hockhockson Farm in Colts Neck, used either place.
Stewart hosts a new current affairs show, called “The Problem with Jon Stewart,” on Apple TV+. On Friday, he is scheduled to host Red Bank-based Lunch Break’s annual fall fundraising gala at the Count Basie Center for the Arts.

TINTON FALLS — The members of the Borough Council have adopted a $28.2 million budget to fund the operation of Tinton Falls this year.
The budget, which was adopted on May 3, will be supported by the collection of $16.5 million in taxes from Tinton Falls’ residential and commercial property owners. Other revenue includes the appropriation of $4.46 million from the borough’s surplus fund (savings) and the receipt of $1.5 million in state aid.
Tinton Falls’ 2021 budget totaled $27.2 million and was supported by the collection of $16.2 million in taxes from property owners. Other revenue included the receipt of $1.5 million in state aid, an amount which municipal officials said has remained unchanged for 13 years.
From 2021 to 2022, appropriations have increased by $1 million and the tax levy has increased by $337,573.
In 2021, the municipal tax rate was 44 cents per $100 of assessed valuation. The average home in Tinton Falls was assessed at $367,074. The owner of that home paid about $1,615 in municipal taxes.
In 2022, the municipal tax rate is projected to decrease to 38.4 cents per $100 of assessed valuation. The average home is now estimated to be assessed at $387,728. The owner of that home will pay about $1,489 in municipal taxes.
However, if the assessed value of an individual’s home and/or property has increased by a significant amount from 2021 to 2022, that individual could pay more in taxes to a taxing entity (i.e., municipality) even if the tax rate for the taxing entity has decreased, as it is doing in Tinton Falls.
Municipal taxes are one item on a property owner’s tax bill, which also includes Tinton Falls School District taxes, Monmouth Regional High School District taxes and Monmouth County taxes.
Individuals pay more or less in taxes depending on the assessed value of their home and/or property and the annual tax rate that is set by each taxing entity.
According to a presentation provided by the borough, selected appropriations in the 2022 budget include the following line items: public safety, $6.31 million; public works, $4.06 million; employee group health insurance, $3.05 million; pension costs, $2.53 million; debt service, $2.51 million; and general government, $2.4 million.
The budget appropriates $435,000 toward improvements to the Tinton Falls Public Library.
According to the presentation, the library improvements will be funded by $217,500 in grant money, $150,000 from the borough’s capital reserve and $67,500 from other sources.
The library at 664 Tinton Ave. was closed by municipal officials in August 2017 when mold was discovered in the building. The building is owned by the borough. Repairs to the building have been estimated at more than $400,000.
The Tinton Falls Public Library was created and is managed by the Tinton Falls Public Library Association. The library operates independently of the Monmouth County Library System.
And, the 2022 municipal budget appropriates $440,000 for field lighting improvements at Hockhockson Park. The appropriation will be covered by the borough’s open space trust, according to the presentation.
Jon Stewart Wants to Buy Colts Neck Farm, Turn it into Animal Sanctuary

Colts Neck, NJ - Jon Stewart and his wife, Tracey, already own an animal farm sanctuary in Middletown, but now the couple is looking to expand: They want to buy the historic Hockhockson Farm on Rt. 537 in Colts Neck, and turn it into a working farm and animal sanctuary.
The 45-acre Hockhockson Farm is currently owned by Robert Cooke III, who lives on the property. However, Jon and Tracey Stewart’s entity, the JTS Land Trust, is in contract to buy the property, reports the Two River Times. JTS Land Trust has filed paperwork with the Colts Neck planning office.
In fact, JTS Land Trust is scheduled to appear Tuesday, April 5, before the Monmouth County Agriculture Development Board, where they will seek the board's approval to turn the property into a commercial farm.
Similar to their farm sanctuary in Middletown, Tracey and Jon Stewart want to house rescued farm animals at Hockhockson Farm, and raise and sell crops there. They also want to build a visitors' center on site, and build an agricultural education center. That's what they need the county Agriculture Development Board to approve. The board will hear their application at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 5 at the county Agricultural Building, 4000 Kozloski Road in Freehold Township.
Hockhockson Farm currently used to board horses
The farm, located Laird and Swimming River roads in Colts Neck, is currently being used to board horses, as well as to grow vegetables and flowers.
Under the Stewarts' proposal, four to six cows, two to four pigs, six to 10 sheep, six to 10 goats, two to four horses and up to 50 chickens would live there, and all would be rescued farm animals. Tracey Stewart, a vegan, is passionate about rescuing farm animals that would otherwise go to slaughter houses.
“Abused farm animals rescued from slaughter houses, kill piles, live markets and roadsides would be housed and rehabilitated at the farm,” according to the applicant’s paperwork, reports the Two River Times. “The animals would live out their natural lives experiencing individual care and compassion by a licensed veterinarian.”
The Stewarts bought their 12-acre farm in Middletown in 2013, and it is now open to the public by appointment. Tracey said she and her husband hope school groups will come to the farm.
