Basement Waterproofing in Jackson Township

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 Jackson Township:

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.

The PGA Tour released the 2023 Korn Ferry Tour schedule on Tuesday and it features a revamped points structure, a path to earn 30 PGA Tour cards, record purses and 26 tournaments across five countries and 18 states.

The 33rd season of the tour will begin with four consecutive international events, beginning Jan. 15-18 with the Bahamas Great Exuma Classic at Sandals Emerald Bay Golf Club in the Bahamas. The regular season ends Aug. 20 with one of three new events—the Magnit Championship at Metedeconk National Golf Club in Jackson Township, N.J.—then four Korn Ferry Tour Finals events will be played after that.

Up one from three Finals events last year, the four-event finale will begin Aug. 24-27 at the Albertsons Boise Open in Idaho. The wrinkle in 2023 is that field sizes will be reduced at each event, similar to how the PGA Tour handles its FedEx Cup playoff system.

Unlike in previous years, there will not be a separate points list for the regular season and the Finals. There will only be one season-long points list in 2023 that will award the 30 PGA Tour cards after completion of the Korn Ferry Tour Championship Oct. 5-8 at Victoria National Golf Club in Newburgh, Ind.

Each regular season event will boast a $1 million purse and it’ll be boosted to $1.5 million for the four finals events, totaling $28 million, the most in tour history.

“Stretching our season into October while maintaining a 26-event schedule allowed us to compose a strong tournament calendar with natural breaks, optimal golf course conditions, as well as providing our 30 graduates with time to prepare for their transition to the PGA Tour, which will begin in January 2024,” said Korn Ferry Tour president Alex Baldwin.

After the opening event in the Bahamas, the tour will remain there for one more week before moving to Panama and Colombia. The first event on U.S. soil will be March 23-26 at the Club Car Championship at the Landings Golf and Athletic Club in Savannah, Ga. However, the next week (March 30-April) the tour will head out of the U.S. to the Astara Chile Classic at Prince of Wales Country Club in Santiago, Chile, a new event on the schedule. The other new event will be the Compliance Solutions Championship (June 22-25) at the Jimmie Austin Golf Club at the University of Oklahoma in Norman.

“The success we’ve seen from Korn Ferry Tour graduates Sungjae Im, Scottie Scheffler and Will Zalatoris, the last three recipients of the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, is indicative of the quality and talent on the Korn Ferry Tour,” PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said.

JACKSON - The township is "finalizing details" on a land grab that would preserve 32 acres of open space where a developer planned to build four private religious schools.

The Bellevue Estates LLC proposal for four schools on Leesville Road has been controversial since the minute the plans were filed. The schools would hold up to 2,850 students, which a traffic engineer hired by the developer said would result in more than 1,500 additional cars on the road every day schools were in session.

Earlier:Jackson religious schools would cause 'disastrous and catastrophic' traffic, residents say

Mordechai Eichorn, principal of Bellevue Estates LLC, already had a three-school project approved just two miles down Leesville Road, with another 1,400 students.

A potential purchase price for the property was not disclosed.

"We have been successful in negotiating with the owners of this Leesville Road property with the intent of having the township acquire this parcel of land," Mayor Michael Reina said in a statement. "As details are being finalized with the landowners, no additional information is available at this time."

"My priority is to protect existing neighborhoods within Jackson Township, and to protect and honor the rights of all Jackson residents. We have found a way to achieve both outcomes with this agreement once it is finalized and approved."

Eichorn could not immediately be reached for comment Monday.

Subscribers Only:Jackson is changing, from businesses to people and politics

The applications for religious schools came after the township settled a civil rights lawsuit with the federal Department of Justice.

The DOJ accused township officials of targeting the municipality's booming Orthodox Jewish community with ordinances and other actions designed to "prevent (them) from further populating Jackson," including a ban on school construction. The ordinance also served as the basis for numerous civil rights lawsuits against the town, including one filed by the New Jersey Attorney General's Office.

As part of the settlement, the township is required to pass an ordinance "permitting schools in numerous residential and other zoning districts," replacing the school construction ordinance.

Reina's announcement of the land purchase comes just over a week before Election Day, where he is seeking reelection to a fifth term. He's opposed by Council President Martin Flemming III and, in recent weeks, both have said they were committed to purchasing more open space as a tool to control development.

But Flemming said the Township Council had never been informed that the municipality was even in negotiations to purchase the site. A lack of communication between Reina and council members has been a sticking point for Flemming, who is running alongside council members Andrew Kern and Samara Porter O'Neill.

"This is way too convenient to be happenstance," Flemming said. "I'm the council president, and I have no idea what the price is. I have no idea what the terms are. The mayor held the residents in Leesville hostage to make a political point and, if it wasn't a political point, then why wasn't the council involved?"

In August, Flemming and other township officials met with Eichorn to discuss using the site for housing instead of schools after hearing concerns from neighbors. Eichorn submitted a plan for 48-single family homes to the zoning board, but it was rejected.

"The schools didn't belong there," Flemming said.

‘Say goodbye’ to historic Rova Farms in Jackson NJ

Almost a century ago — in the 1930s — a group of Russian immigrants settled in the Cassville section of Jackson Township, N.J. They purchased 1,400 acres of land there, which eventually came to be known as Rova Farms.

Originally housing residential communities, farms, churches, and social centers, the area soon blossomed into a thriving lakeside resort and retreat. Thousands of special events and concerts were hosted there over the decades.

Growing up in Jackson, I have fond memories of shopping at the legendary Rova Farms Flea Market in the 90s. Bought some excellent board games and tech equipment there.

Even Bruce Springsteen played Rova Farms in 1973. The concert is mentioned in his "Born to Run" memoir as "the only full-out bar brawl" he and his band experienced.

Unfortunately, in the 2000s, Rova Farms fell into disuse and severe disrepair.

Break-ins and vandalism blighted the buildings, and accelerated the area's deterioration. Eventually, the township determined the structures could not be salvaged.

Jackson Township purchased 34 acres of the land as Open Space in 2019. A volunteer advisory committee was formed to determine the best use for the space.

The big decision: Soon the restaurant and cultural center will be demolished, as Rova Farms transforms to Rova Park.

The goal is to create a community space featuring both active and passive recreation. Officials are also fully dedicated to preserving the significance of the site. So an even more important objective is to maintain historical perspective, with a big educational proponent to the new development as well.

A few portions of the property have already been taken down and cleaned up. The main demolition and renovation is set to begin soon.

So the town decided to hold a Rova Farms Day celebration this Saturday 10/22 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. A flier for the event invites the public to "Say Goodbye, Learn the History, See Future Plans". The official address for the festivities is 120 Cassville Rd in Jackson.

NJ Assemblyman Alexander Sauickie, former Jackson council president and champion of this project, will kick off the event by speaking at 1 p.m. Saturday.

At 1:30 p.m., singer Galina Moore will perform original songs in the style of Belarusian folklore.

At 2:30 p.m., a dance ensemble will take the stage to perform "Inspiration".

And the day will wrap up with a 3:30 p.m. performance by singer Tatyana Hatliskaya.

While it's sad to see a prominent piece of Jackson Township history razed and committed to dust, the future development of Rova Park seems like a smart use of public Open Space funds. And a promising new space for Jackson residents to gather, to play, and to learn about the township's rich Russian heritage and history once again.
