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 Howell Township:
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

Knights of old and lords and ladies will be milling among the crowd at the Farmingdale farmers market on Saturday.
FARMINGDALE, NJ — The monthly farmers market in town is never just about fruits and vegetables. And if you visit on Saturday, you might think you traveled back to Medieval times.
Each month, the volunteer Recreation Commission in this small borough in the center of much larger Howell Township goes all out to present a themed market. There have been markets with fairies and flamingos in past months.
This Saturday, be prepared to see knights and unicorns and various other signs that you may not be in Farmingdale anymore. But you will be.
The Medieval Market starts at 9 a.m. at 11 Asbury Ave. at the Farmingdale Community Center.
The day starts early with these events:
This month's event is sponsored by Nova Heating & Air.
Amanda Levers, one of the volunteer organizers, said the town is also asking that attendees bring non-perishable food items for Joshua House, a ministry in Farmingdale that collects food, clothing and other items.
Levers said the Medieval theme will be enhanced with the services of Markland, a nonprofit historical educational organization, based in Maryland that operates from Virginia through the New York City area. Markland performs re-enactments as well as providing cultural information about the period.
And be prepared to hear some Old English. The greeting, "Wes Tu Hal!" literally translates to the modern English, "How do you hail?" The question was a typical greeting in Saxon England, the organization's website says.
Members of Markland "re-enact medieval life by constructing and using reproductions of the period's accouterments, and have a lot of fun educating the public (and each other) with what they have learned in the process," the website adds.
On a softer note, the Fun Pony Parties company will provide the "unicorn" rides, Levers said.
As with every market day, there will be vendors on site, music, food and even a "Lords and Ladies Tea Time," Levers said. But the tea party, being held on picnic blankets on the trail at the Community Center, is already fully booked, she added.
Levers said parking may be at a premium because she has already received 700 responses on Facebook, but attendees can park at the school on Academy Street or on side streets.

Monmouth Commerce Warehouse Application Worries Howell Neighbors

Application for a controversial 1.92M-square-foot warehouse on Randolph Road is on a busy Sept. 1 Howell Planning Board agenda.
HOWELL, NJ — The application of Monmouth Commerce Center, LLC, for preliminary and final major site plan approval with variance relief, is scheduled to be heard at the next township Planning Board meeting, Sept. 1.
But although the application is on the agenda, "it is unclear if it will be reached as there are other applications also being heard on the same meeting," said Matthew R. Howard, director of Community Development.
Monmouth Commerce Center, LLC and owners Lawrence Katz and Felix Pflaster, owners, seek to construct five one-story warehouse buildings with office space with 1,192,500 square feet in total, according to the board's agenda.
Residents connected to HOPE, Howell for Open Land and Preservation of the Environment, have alerted the public to the meeting, although they also say they are not positive it will be heard because of the heavy agenda.
Residents citied several concerns about the project's impact on the Randolph Road area on their Facebook site.
In a recent post, some of the history of the application was explained on HOPE's site:
"In 2018, the Monmouth Commerce Center applied to build 1.2M square feet of warehouses on Randolph Road. A resident, Dawn Van Brunt, hired a lawyer and fought it. After 10 Planning Board meetings between may 2019 and January 2020, the Planning Board denied the project," which was later upheld on appeal.
"How was the MCC able to come back? They reapplied to build the warehouses in December 2021, before the Planning Board and Town Council changed the zoning in July 2022," she said. "The MCC is now grandfathered to build these massive warehouses. What could have been done to stop this project? It was simple. The Planning Board and Council could have changed the zoning two years ago and not waited until," Van Brunt said.
According to the Planning Board agenda, the application calls for each building at the Monmouth Commerce Center to contain its own parking and loading stalls to service the building.
Access to the site is provided by four new full movement driveways; two along Randolph Road that will serve as access for both passenger vehicles and tractor trailers, a third on Randolph Road as well as one on Brook Road that will serve for passenger vehicles only.
Additional site improvements consist of lighting, landscaping, aboveground infiltration basins to address stormwater management and refuse enclosures. The applicants are also proposing off-site improvements to extend public water and sanitary sewer mains to the development.
The off-site improvements would also consist of improvements at the Randolph Road and Lakewood Farmingdale Road intersection, including the installation of a traffic signal, full width mill and overlay, storm water inlets along the subject side of Randolph Road and Oak Glen Road, roadway striping within Randolph Road and Oak Glen Road and an 8.5-foot-wide, 21,639-square-foot right-of-way dedication to Howell Township along Randolph Road frontage, as well as a 3,055-square-foot right-of way dedication to Howell Township at the intersection of Oak Glen Road and Brook Road, the agenda says.

The Howell Heritage & Historical Society wants to re-roof the Ardena one-room schoolhouse to preserve it as a local history site.
HOWELL, NJ — Tickets for a 50-50 raffle are still available for the Howell Heritage & Historical Society's fundraiser to preserve the historic Ardena Schoolhouse.
The raffle drawing will be at 2 p.m. this Sunday, Aug. 28, during an open house for the schoolhouse from noon to 4 p.m., said society President Bob Novak. The Old Ardena Schoolhouse is on the corner of Old Tavern Road and Preventorium roads, across from the ballfields, he said.
The cost is $5 per ticket and books of five are $25.
The society also has monthly meetings and the meeting this Friday, Aug. 26, is at the Ardena Baptist Church Gym, Adelphia-Farmingdale Road (Route 524) at 7 p.m. A member will give a talk on baskets used in farming and other household functions, Novak said.
Novak said he welcomes donations through the website and says he can still arrange the sale of the raffle tickets. He said people interested in the tickets can leave a message at the MacKenzie House museum at 732-938-2212 and members will get tickets to those interested.
Email [email protected] for more donation information.
On February 24, 2020, the society received the deed for the MacKenzie Museum and Library property from Howell Township. On September 14, 2021 Howell Township Council passed an ordinance leasing the land under the Ardena Schoolhouse to the Howell Heritage & Historical Society. They are now in full possession of two major historic properties in Howell, the society says on its website.
The society has raised funds to paint the historic schoolhouse, and now wants to replace the roof.
Ardena is "the last one-room schoolhouse in Howell Township that remains as it was originally intended," the society says in its flyer about the raffle ticket sales.
The mission of Howell Heritage & Historical Society is to collect and preserve materials related to Howell Township’s cultural and historical heritage; to provide the Howell Township residents and the public at large, accessibility to materials, displays and buildings that highlight the historical significance of Howell Township, and to promote the study of local and regional history through educational programs and events, its website says.
The Howell Heritage & Historical Society meets the fourth Friday of each month (except November and December) at 7 p.m. at Ardena Baptist Church Gym. The meetings feature various talks and presentations, and are open to anyone with an interest in the history of the Howell area, according to the website.

As Summer winds down, I know everyone's goal is to spend as much time outside as possible.
I am trying to throw SO many tennis balls for my dog Carolina before the weather turns.
Before we now it, the weather forecast will include below freezing temperatures and snow storms.
If your outdoor plan was to hit up one of the New Jersey state parks, think again because your plans may have to change.
According to News12.com, Double Trouble State Park located in Bayville is currently closed to the public.
The reasoning behind the closure is due to, "the presence of sick wildlife."
Here is the catch, because there always is one.
Officials have not given any details on which animals are ill or any information regarding the disease the animal(s) have.
When information is withheld from the public, it makes me nervous because usually there is a reason we are not being told the whole story.
But for now, all we can do is just hope for the best.
All we know is that the park will remain closed until, "the animal in question can get trapped," according to News12.com.
Double Trouble State Park's official address is 581 Pinewald Keswick Road in Bayville. Their phone number for questions or concerns is (732) 341-6662.
Once there is an update on Double Trouble State Park, I will be the first to let you know.
While we wait for this state park to reopen, here are some other New Jersey attractions to see:
