Basement Waterproofing in Hockhockson

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 Hockhockson:

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.

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!

A post shared by The Daily Squeal (@thedailysqueal) on Jan 13, 2020 at 11:27am PST

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.

While New Jersey's Jon Stewart was taking on the comedy and political world on The Daily Show, his wife Tracey was writing best-selling books and fighting for animal rights, and building a safe place for them.

Together, the two built a farm at 228 Route 537 East in Colts Neck that grows crops as well as care for rescued farm animals, including cows, sheep, goats, pigs, and chickens according to New Jersey Advanced Media.

'Hockhockson Farm' includes two 2-bedroom cottages, pool, pond, and equine facility with an arena for showing. The property also boasts six barns,16 stalls, five pastures, five paddocks, a five-car garage, and a farm stand area.

The main house is bright and airy with large windows. The Grand Foyer has a beautiful sweeping staircase and is the focal point of the house.

Originally built in the late 1770s, the 45-acre property sold for about $4 million.

Jon and Tracey Stewart run the Hockhockson Farm Foundation. Their mission is to unite community leaders and other like-minded organizations to better serve communities in need. Together they facilitate interest and access to healthy, sustainable, and kind food options. Their programs provide educational outreach that supports whole food plant-based nutrition, food justice initiatives, and the prevention of cruelty to animals. The foundation’s programming and events provide opportunities to give back and spotlight leading-edge advances in health, nutrition, and food systems.

The Stewarts are very active in the community and give back all the time. Jon and Tracey are big supporters of the Count Basie Center for the Arts and Lunch Break, a non-profit that provides food, clothing, life skills, and fellowship to those in need in Monmouth County and beyond.

Take a look at where all of the magic happens.

Red Bank, NJ The Hockhockson Farm Foundation, the charitable initiative of Tracey and Jon Stewart, recently announced their newest endeavor, The Fields at Hockhockson Farm, and it couldn’t have come at a more crucial time.

“One of the most important things we can do to boost our immune systems is to eat a healthy diet with fresh fruits and vegetables daily. We want to help bring this to as many people as we can as it is possibly needed now more than ever.” said Tracey Stewart, founder and president of Hockhockson Farm Foundation.

The fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic has sent record numbers of people to local food banks. In their ongoing partnership with Lunch Break, Hockhockson Farm Foundation is using their 11 acres of growing fields to grow as much food as possible, with as few people as possible to feed as many people as possible. Hockhockson Farm Foundation will donate everything they grow this season directly to Lunch Break with plans to do even more next season.

The three principles of the Stewart's foundation, The Fields at Hockhockson Farm are: Nourish, Educate and Inspire: 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 are grateful to Tracey and Jon Stewart and the Hockhockson Farm Foundation for sharing their first harvest with Lunch Break families. We are thrilled to be among the recipients of the Hockhockson Farm Foundation’s generosity. The foundation’s values are very much in line with ours: nutrition and education, preservation of our natural resources, caring for nature and the well-being of our community,” said Executive Director Gwendolyn O. Love.

Clients of Lunch Break have also been sharing their appreciation for Lunch Break’s unwavering commitment to serve the community during this trying time. C.R. writes, “I am blessed because of your organization’s help. I am a single mother with health issues, which led me to have temporary disability. I have a 12-year-old son with type 1 diabetes, who is insulin-dependent. If it wasn’t for your resources and food pantry, I wouldn’t know what to do. Thank you so much for your help.”

Lunch Break is committed to not missing a meal throughout the Covid-19 crisis and Hockhockson Farm Foundation is hoping to make that promise a little bit easier. You too can help by donating directly to Lunch Break. Any amount you can donate will make a difference. With their buying power, Lunch Break is able to stretch a dollar and increase the impact of your donation.

You can donate online or send a check to Lunch Break, PO Box 2215, Red Bank, NJ 07701.

MIDDLETOWN, NJ — Saturday update: Despite the poor forecast, Friday night's game did happen, and Middletown won!

Middletown defeated the previously undefeated Bayshore Little League 7-5 Friday evening. That means there will be a second game this Tuesday, July 6:

Next game, Tuesday, July 6, 5:30 p.m.Tinton Falls Little League 295 Hockhockson RoadTinton Falls, NJ

Lots of Middletown fans showed up in a large crowd to support the boys Friday night.

“The crowd was electric; the team never gave up and stayed composed throughout the game. Total team effort up and down the lineup," said Coach Mike Fastiggi.

Tuesday's game will be the final game, in the battle for the District 19 championship.

“Truly a spectacular game hitting throughout the line up and all players came up big in the field! Players and coaches are excited and honor to represent Middletown in the District 19 championship! Thank you to all the fans that came out to support the team; it was a great evening," said manager Vin Verdiglione.

Middletown girls' softball, coached by Vinny Esposito, also have an all-star game Tuesday night. Stay tuned for more to come on that.

----

For anyone who complained about the heat and humidity this past week, the boys of Middletown 8/9-year-old Little League didn't let it slow them down, in their quest for a district championship title.

And this Friday night is a very big game for these local kids.

The team won their Wednesday night game; they beat Freehold 13-9. Their next game was supposed to be Thursday, however that got rained out and now their next game is 5:30 p.m. Friday against Bayshore Little League.

If Middletown wins Friday night, they will play Bayshore again on Tuesday for the District 19 championship. If they lose tonight, Bayshore automatically becomes District 19 champs.

For anyone who wants to come out and watch Friday night's game, it will begin at 5:30 p.m. at Tinton Falls Little League:

295 Hockhockson Road Tinton Falls, NJ 07724

That tournament is a double elimination so the Middletown boys will have to defeat Bayshore twice in order to win. Bayshore is currently undefeated; Middletown Little League has one loss.

"I am so very proud of each and every boy on the team," said manager Vincent Verdiglione. "This and the last few games have been team wins. Looking forward to representing Middletown in the District 19 championship.”

In Wednesday night's game, Verdiglione made great calls on both the defense and offense lineups. Defense was on point with outstanding pitching by Michael Annucci and Joey Picorello, and catchers Nick Verdiglione and Chase Zappola made some quick plays.

Ryan Grasso made a particularly great catch in left field.

Mikey Fastiggi hit a triple. Michael Annucci hit an in-the-park home run. Colin Briggs hit a sacrifice fly to left field. Ryan Curry, Tyler Galante, Logan Travis, Matt Alessi and Erik Bailey all hit single scoring RBI’s.

Can you imagine playing ball in that heat Wednesday night?

"The boys brought their bats! The heat didn’t seem to be a factor for these young men," said Joanne Briggs, team mom.

You'll recall that the 2018 12u Middletown Little League, coached by Tim Naughton, won the 2018 state championship, a team that featured memorable players such as "Big Al" Delia, Dylan Briggs and Joey Wall.

That team almost made it to the Little League World Series, but lost in one of the elimination rounds.

Only the Little League Majors division (12-year-old players) teams compete for a chance to go to the Little League International World Series Tournament, held every summer in Williamsport, PA. The road to Williamsport will begin this summer with a district tournament that begins on Tuesday, July 5. The 2021 12YO team is again coached by Naughton, who has a son on the team.

TINTON FALLS – Members of the Tinton Falls Borough Council have awarded a contract to an engineering firm that will design improvements to municipal parks.

On Dec. 1, council members awarded the contract to T&M Associates, the borough engineer, for services related to the borough’s 2021 park improvement program.

Improvements are expected to be made at the Sycamore Recreation Complex, Liberty Park, Riverdale West Park and Hockhockson Park, according to borough officials.

T&M Associates will provide pre-design and design services, prepare engineered construction plans, technical specifications and bid documents, according to the terms of the contract that is not to exceed $148,000.

The firm’s services will include a design phase, construction cost estimate, technical specifications, soil erosion and sediment control certification, and bidding services.

At the Sycamore Recreation Complex, the engineering firm anticipates that authorization, survey and preliminary design will take place this month.

The final design and plan review, advertising for bidding, receiving bids and awarding a contract, a pre-construction meeting and the start of construction are anticipated to take place early in 2021 and construction is scheduled to be completed by mid-June.

T&M Associates anticipates a similar schedule for Liberty Park, Riverdale West Park and Hockhockson Park, with improvements expected to be completed by July.

According to T&M Associates, the improvements to the Sycamore Recreation Complex will expand the playground area with a new rubber safety surface and swing set, extend the park’s pavilion approximately 20 feet, and plant new trees and install mile marker signs and bollard lights along the park’s walking path.

A new basketball court in the vicinity of the existing court and two large pavilions with a new restroom building at the former tennis court area will be constructed.

At Liberty Park, the improvements will resurface the basketball courts and install new equipment and bleachers, construct improvements to the enclosed dog park, demolish and replace the existing playground near the pond, repair an asphalt walkway, install new Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant handicap ramps from the parking lot, install a new paver patio area adjacent to the concession building, and construct a new trash enclosure, according to T&M Associates.

The improvements to Hockhockson Park will continue previous drainage improvements by installing underdrain around the perimeter of the park’s first field and between the parking lot and tee ball area.

The existing storage containers will be replaced with a storage building, a new wireless control system for the existing field lights will be installed, new walkways will be constructed throughout the site, new batting cages will be added, concrete curb will be installed along the park frontage, and the park’s driveway entrance will receive Americans with Disabilities Act upgrades and be realigned as a traffic calming measure to reduce speeding into the park, according to T&M Associates.

The improvements to Riverdale West Park will demolish the existing playground and replace it with new features and equipment, expand the parking lot, and construct various upgrades that will be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

T&M Associates estimates the improvements to the Sycamore Recreation Complex will cost $1.3 million; the improvements to Liberty Park will cost $427,000; the improvements to Hockhockson Park will cost $324,000; and the improvements to Riverdale West Park will cost $300,500. The preliminary construction cost estimate for the total improvements is $2.34 million.
