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.

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 Interlaken:

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.

NJ Jackals will play ball in Paterson at historic Hinchliffe Stadium

PATERSON — The city has officially become the new home for a minor league baseball team as the New Jersey Jackals will play their 2023 season at historic Hinchliffe Stadium in Paterson, as announced on Wednesday.

The team's owner and operator, Al Durso, a Paterson native, joined Paterson Mayor Andre Sayegh and other local leaders in making the move official with a news conference streamed live on social media.

The roughly 7,000 seat stadium is owned by the Paterson Board of Education and has been undergoing an extension restoration, after sitting empty for roughly 25 years.

Durso said that before he was even elected mayor, Sayegh had met with him at the Jackal's now-former home field, Yogi Berra Stadium — and asked what it would take to bring the Jackals to Paterson.

"I'm here really because I believe in their vision and because I want to be part of the rebirth of the stadium," Durso said.

The last time there was a professional baseball game at Hinchliffe Stadium was in 1950, according to Friends of Hinchliffe Stadium co-founder, Brian LoPinto.

The Jackals are among 16 teams that play for the Frontier League, a partner of Major League Baseball.

They will kick off a 96-game season in May 2023 at Hinchliffe — which sits above Paterson's National Historic Great Falls and is surrounded by the city's national historic district.

Hinchliffe is also one of two remaining ballparks where the segregated Negro Leagues played in the mid-20th century.

The stadium restorations are part of a larger $95 million project that includes a parking garage, restaurant with museum and nearby residential complex.

"This is a wonderful day for Hinchliffe Stadium," LoPinto said in a response sent to New Jersey 101.5. "We are grateful to Mr. Al Dorso, and the New Jersey Jackals for believing in the Hinchliffe Stadium movement. Welcome to Hinchliffe Stadium. Play ball!"

Paterson Board of Education Commissioner Manny Martinez also spoke at Wednesday's event and talked about the learning opportunities that he believes the new partnership will provide.

"How do we get our youth engaged... and to learn about sports management about running a franchise," Martinez said.

“We’re thrilled to have the Jackals in Paterson and equally pleased to be working alongside Al Dorso, a visionary, change agent and proven businessman with the leadership, acumen and experience to bring additional growth, prosperity and entertainment to our local community,” Sayegh said in a written release.

“We are excited to announce Hinchliffe Stadium as the new home of the New Jersey Jackals. This is a big day in franchise history and we’re already counting down the days to the Opening Day of 2023. Paterson has already been a gracious host and we’re excited to work with them moving forward,” the team said in an official statement to New Jersey 101.5.

The mayor closed Wednesday's news conference by referencing a classic quote from the iconic baseball movie, "Field of Dreams."

"We're building it, and they're coming," Sayegh said.

Editor's note: An earlier version mispelled "Hinchliffe" Stadium in at least one sentence.

NJ judge takes action after protesting workers bring trains to a halt

A federal judge issued an emergency restraining order Sunday prohibiting members of NJ Transit's engineers union from taking any future job action as the agency filed a lawsuit over Friday's job action.

The moves come after a third of NJ Transit's train engineers called out Friday causing dozens of canceled trains culminating with service ending for the day in the early evening. Train commuters found themselves stranded and scrambling to find an alternative ride.

According to a report by NorthJersey.com, NJ Transit's lawsuit filed Friday called the day's job action the equivalent of a strike that "ravaged" the lives of those who depend on NJ Transit.

The agency requested the emergency order after engineers who are members of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers & Trainsmen (BLE&T) continued to call out sick over the weekend. It was granted by U.S. District Judge Christine O'Hearn on Sunday, according to NorthJersey.com.

Under the order, BLE&T members may not encourage, permit or participate in any action that would interfere with NJ Transit operations. Members who violate the order could face discipline, fines or jail.

Union leadership must "immediately" tell members to stop any action about job actions.

In a letter to Brown before Friday's action, NJ Transit accused union leadership of encouraging members to call out on the state's Juneteenth holiday. BLE&T is the only NJ Transit union not to sign a new agreement that adds Juneteenth as a paid holiday.

"Please be aware that NJ Transit will not tolerate an unlawful job action and may institute disciplinary action against any employees taking such action. Further, anyencouragement of this unlawful activity by BLE&T leadership will also not be tolerated and may result in disciplinary action," read the letter.

Members did not receive holiday pay for working on Friday because they are still under the old contract's terms.

During a court hearing on Sunday, Brown admitted writing an email insinuating that members should not let the lack of a paid holiday stop them from enjoying the Juneteenth holiday, according to NorthJersey.com.

NJ Transit on Monday afternoon did not respond to New Jersey 101.5's request for more information.

Netflix in NJ? Streaming giant bids on Fort Monmouth property

After months of buzz, Netflix has officially entered a bid on a sprawling property at Fort Monmouth.

The Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority has been overseeing plans to develop the nearly 300-acre property known as the “Mega Parcel,” spanning parts of Eatontown and Oceanport, since the U.S. Army base officially closed in September 2011.

A total of four bids were received by the Monday deadline, the panel announced.

While the Mega Parcel had been appraised for $54 million as of October, according to FMERA, — no further bid details would be announced as the evaluation process began.

If the streaming giant's proposal is ultimately chosen, the Monmouth County site would become Netflix's second largest production facility behind a New Mexico property, as previously reported by the New York Times.

This past fall, Netflix also opened a new production facility across the Hudson River — in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, as reported by Brooklyn Eagle.

The other Fort Monmouth bids were submitted by Extell Acquisitions, Mega Parcel Development and RDR Partners.

RDR Partners involves stake-holders Russo Development, Dinallo Development and River Development Equities - while Extell Development Company is a New York based real estate company.

Mega Parcel Development was filed with state officials in January, with Joseph Saadia as its registered agent.

“America’s first movie studio was in New Jersey, and today it’s home to many talented people working in entertainment,” Netflix said in a statement back in October, as reported by Bloomberg.

In late May, New Jersey announced a major film and TV production facility has been confirmed for Essex County, not far from Newark Liberty International Airport.

“We’re not just committed to making film and television production a core driver of our economy, we are actively restoring our historic place in a world-class location," Gov. Phil Murphy said at the time.

That project involves Great Point Studios, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and Lionsgate.

Murphy signed legislation four years ago, reinstating New Jersey’s film tax credit program.

As of March, about 86% of Fort Monmouth’s total 1,126 acres was either sold, under contract, in negotiations or entering the request for proposals process, as reported by NJBiz.

Welcome to the first full day of Spring. We've had a number of "Spring-tastic" weather days lately. And you can add both Monday and Tuesday to that list, with sunshine, dry weather, and above-normal temperatures.

However, the big weather story in New Jersey's forecast is an extended period of unsettled, wet weather. Through the second half of the workweek — Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday — we're looking at an inch or two of healthy rainfall. However, exactly when the steadiest raindrops arrive is up in the air.

Monday morning is actually starting out slightly warmer than I expected, with more temperatures in the 40s. (No complaints there.) Don't be ashamed to reach for a jacket and/or flick on the heat in your car.

Highs on Monday will hit 60 degrees across most of the state. Both morning and afternoon temperatures will run about 5 to 10 degrees above normal for late March.

Sunny skies. Dry weather. And an occasional breeze, blowing out of the northwest over 20 mph.

Monday night will be quiet too. As a few clouds creep into the sky, low temps will descend to the lower 40s or so. Model guidance paints a little sprinkle over northern New Jersey after Midnight — but I question whether the air will be too dry to sustain raindrops. Therefore, I've left my on-air forecast dry, but the chance isn't zero.

Another pleasant day. A lighter breeze will be countered by additional cloud cover. In general, highs will scale back slightly to the upper 50s. Along the immediate coast, Jersey Shore beaches could end up considerably cooler with a more prominent sea breeze.

Again, some models do show the chance of a shower Tuesday afternoon. If it happens (and that's a big if), raindrops would be limited and light.

A midweek pattern chance will be just what the "drought doctor" ordered. Bouts of healthy rainfall and miserable weather will be with us for some portion of Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. But none of those three days look like a total washout.

When I'm crafting a weather forecast, I'm looking for consistency. I want all our forecast models to say the same thing, from model to model and from run to run. Those models are completely independent of each other. So when they paint the same picture, that gives us high confidence about how a forecast will play out.

Unfortunately, that is not the case for this late-week storm system. So we're still going to play this stormy setup day-by-day, trying to nail down when it's going to rain and when we might catch some dry weather.

At the moment, it looks like spotty showers early Wednesday will turn to scattered rain late-day (starting around mid-afternoon). Because of clouds, raindrops, and an on-shore breeze, temperatures will be stuck in the 40s at best.

Then we'd catch a relative lull in rainfall action on Thursday. It won't be completely dry, but there will be breaks in the cloud cover. Furthermore, a warm front lifting through the southern half of the state will force a big temperature gradient across the state. Highs range from the mid 40s in North Jersey, to the lower 60s in South Jersey.

As the main area of low pressure passes by Thursday night into Friday, we'll probably see the steadiest rain of the week. It could even be heavy at times, with rumbles of thunder. However, the ground is pretty thirsty, so the threat for flooding is limited. And our risk of wintry weather is zero.

High temperatures on Friday should settle in the low-mid 50s, with late-day clearing.

How next weekend will play out will depend wholly on the progression of the Wed-Thu-Fri system. It does not look like we'll face an enormous shove of arctic air. Having said that, temperatures will be at or below seasonal normals. Our latest outlook puts Saturday in the 50s, with sun and clouds and a lingering shower chance. Sunday does look blustery, with highs potentially stuck in the 40s.

It’s obvious that once I talk about something on the air or write about it, I can no longer call it a secret. I’ve actually mentioned this on the air before, but sort of in passing, almost praying that no one would notice.

But recently I was given the history about my little private beach and I think it’s something that needs to be shared.

Conners Beach is the little strip of sand that you see along the bay when you arrive (or leave) on the Sea Streak Ferry in Highlands.

Anytime I’ve ever come home from Manhattan on the ferry, I landed at this beach and wondered why it looked so idyllic. Well, it turns out I’m not the only one who discovered it. In fact, the place they call Conners used to be a beach club back in the '50s.

Conners Cedar Grove Hotel was something that dreams were made of. Like a fantasy destination in an old Elvis Presley movie, people met and romanced there, fell in love under the stars and dipped their toes into the calm warm waters of the bay. There was a snack bar and a pool and a legendary hotel dining room where you could order lobsters and cocktails.

There were bungalows along the beach, which have been replaced by apartments and condos and that beautiful piece of land along the Shrewsbury River was sold to Sea Streak.

The road that runs along the old Conners land is now Shore Drive but used to be railroad tracks that brought people from North Jersey and New York to this stunning little piece of beach.

What’s so special about this beach is that it sits along a strip of bay instead of ocean, so the waves lap gently on the shore as if you’re on some deserted Caribbean island.

Running along this pretty little strip of paradise is a gorgeous trail that is part of the Henry Hudson Trail, a paved, 10-foot wide, 24-mile long trail that is a former railroad right-of-way. Some parts have views of surrounding wetlands, streams and fields.

Beginning at Conners, the trail continues along Sandy Hook Bay to Popamora Point on the Atlantic Highlands/Highlands border. Spend the day on this beach and end it with this hike. It’s a little bit of heaven in New Jersey. But shhh. Don’t tell. Let’s keep it to ourselves.
