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.

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:

  • 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 Keansburg:

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.

Michael Flynn graduated college May 9, but he didn’t quite finish. There is one more thing he’s working on, and it’s significant.

The Keansburg 22-year-old is studying the atmosphere of Mars and coauthoring a research paper that could impact future exploration of the Red Planet.

It's his final project at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida, from which he graduated with distinction after attending on a full scholarship through Army ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps).

“One of our best students — not only in the classroom but also in his work doing research,” said Embry-Riddle professor John Hughes, chair of the university’s physics department. “To have an undergraduate doing cutting-edge research that’s going to get published, it’s a great thing for the student and something the university can be proud of.”

'Every shade of blue':Ocean Township alum reveals what he saw on Blue Origin space flight

That’s not all. Later this month Flynn is attending the U.S. Army’s "Air and Space Basic Course" at West Point. He is among the first ROTC cadets ever chosen to attend the exclusive two-week event.

Not bad for a kid who grew up curious about the night sky.

Flynn attended high school at Marine Academy of Science and Technology (MAST) on Sandy Hook. There, as at Embry-Riddle, he made the most of his opportunities.

“He has a combination of talent and work ethic, and that’s a really good combination,” Hughes said. “Almost every time I walked into the lab, he was in there working.”

This past semester Flynn was named was Embry-Riddle’s Outstanding Student in Space Physics, his major. He not only posted the major’s highest grade-point average; his collaboration with physics professor Michael Hickey on the Mars project turned more than a few heads.

Flynn and Hickey are studying the effect the planet’s ferocious sandstorms have on Martian atmosphere. They’re looking at the gravity waves generated when the wind blows across four large mountains, including the gargantuan Olympus Mons. At 72,000 feet high — two-and-a-half times taller than Mount Everest — Olympus Mons is the solar system’s biggest mountain.

They are hoping to publish their findings by summer’s end.

“This is important if we want to travel to Mars, if we want to have satellites over Mars, just understanding the complexities of the atmosphere,” Flynn explained.

Mapping these patters could help scientists anticipate huge fluctuations in temperature, wind speed and atmospheric density. That will be vital for any attempt to send humans to Mars.

Flynn can envision it.

“I would say, from what I’ve studied, that if you had the right shelter it’s possible,” he said. “There are cases of sandstorms with winds at certain locations that can actually become supersonic (above 760 mph) at specific heights. That could be dangerous. But if you had a strong enough shelter, it could be possible.”

Before that, though, Flynn has some business closer to home.

On May 8, Flynn was commissioned as a second lieutenant. He has a job lined up in the Army’s cyber command. Training begins early next year in Georgia. An internship last summer gave him a glimpse of the work.

“It was really eye-opening,” he said. “I can’t talk about the specifics of everything I saw, but I was able to do a project that involved satellite communication systems and the different ways we can control satellite systems.”

That’s where his heart lies.

“I’m really interested in satellite physics and satellite communication systems,” Flynn said.

The ultimate gig? A post with Army Space Operations, which could be crucial to the nation’s future defense. He must attain the rank of captain in order to apply, so that’s a few years off. For now, he’s building a resume and gaining experience. The upcoming course at West Point will add to it all.

“I am really excited about this opportunity where I can apply what I’ve learned to the Army, and take the knowledge the Army is going to give me and apply that for national defense,” Flynn said. “I feel like I’ve been mostly prepared for it.”

As far as Hughes is concerned, you can take the “mostly” out of that sentiment.

“One thing I’m quite sure of?” the professor said. “He’ll be successful no matter where he ends up.”

Chef David Burke of Red Horse in Rumson will pay tribute to the former Fromagerie with a red-carpet celebration Nov. 8.

RUMSON, NJ — Chef David Burke and his team at Red Horse by David Burke will pay tribute to the Fromagerie restaurant with a celebration this Tuesday, Nov. 8, at 6 p.m.

“Homage to Fromage” recalls Fromagerie, the landmark restaurant where Red Horse is now located.

Fromagerie was the iconic 1970s restaurant that was one of the leaders in the fine dining movement in the state.

Plans for the celebration include a red-carpet arrival, a jazz pianist, champagne reception and a menu featuring some updated Fromagerie classics. There will be premium wines and artisan cocktails, too, according to a news release about the event.

The full menu for the event will be posted on the restaurant's website soon. But for now plans are for: Passed hors d'oeuvres; Lobster Cappuccino Bisque, "Paris market style"; Shrimp and Snails Escargot; Cheese Fondue; Fromagerie House Salad; Scallop in Shell; Veal Romanoff; Beef Wellington; French Pastries, Strawberries Romanoff and Black Forrest Cake. Tickets are $135 and are available online at www.redhorsebydb.com. Red Horse is at 26 Ridge Road.

“It’s time to glam it up,” said Burke. “We’ve been dressing down for a long time. Now it’s time to splurge for a night in our exquisite, sexy setting. For one special night we will pay tribute to the memories created from the true hospitality experienced at the Fromagerie and to respect the traditions of those who came before us and to those who will carry on into the future.”

The Fromagerie was opened in 1972 by brothers Markus and Hubert Peter. In addition to its many multi-star ratings, Fromagerie was named by the former Gourmet magazine in the mid-1990s as its favorite restaurant in New Jersey, according to the news release.

The Peters employed many from the area. Burke, a Hazlet native, was hired as a line cook during the summers and holidays while attending the Culinary Art Institute, Hyde Park, N.Y. Later after becoming an internationally awarded chef he returned as a consultant, and still later as an owner.

“To work there you had to be very good,” Burke recalled, explaining that the Peter brothers were key mentors to his budding career. “The jobs were coveted and it was a privilege to work there. It was at the top of its class, a quintessential restaurant that focused totally on the guest experience. Even when I walk in here now, I still feel its greatness like an old stadium or theater. I think, wow, if these walls could talk.”

Considered a leader in American cooking, Burke is recognized internationally for his techniques and skill, his restaurant ownership and his TV appearances. Burke is also the author of two cookbooks, "Cooking With David Burke" and "David Burke’s New American Classics."

In 2004, Burke was part of a group that purchased and operated the Fromagerie for 11 years until it was sold in 2015, the news release said. The corporation dissolved and Burke formed his own group several years ago and had opened 18 restaurants around the country when the pandemic struck in 2020 and his restaurants were forced to close.

Burke reopened most of his shuttered restaurants, and then opened multiple new restaurants around the globe during the pandemic, including seven in New Jersey, such as The Goat in Union Beach and there is also the Dixie Lee Bakery in Keansburg.

Red Horse was Burke’s fourth New Jersey restaurant, opening in March of 2021. It was named New Jersey’s finest steakhouse this year by NJ Monthly, according to a news release.

“This site is a part of the fabric of the community and I’m very happy to bring it back to the highest level of dining to be had in New Jersey and beyond,” Burke said.

Some things are worth being fat for. This is one of them.

Chef David Burke is at it again.

He's been a busy chef! He just recently opened up a new restaurant called THE GOAT in Union Beach.

But now, Mr. Burke is dedicating all his time and energy into a new, sweeter business adventure.

It is a new bakery and being that Chef Burke is a trained pastry chef and graduated from the prestigious École Lenôtre Pastry School in France, it is only fitting.

It is called the Dixie Lee Bakery and it is located at 303 Main Street in Keansburg.

I love this part: the original owners, Mark Onulak and Allison Loori, will remain as managing partners and all 13 existing employees will be keeping their jobs.

“The old school bakery has a great tradition within the community,” said Chef Burke. “My grandfather took my mother there when she was a little girl to buy pastries. We will continue to honor the bakery’s rich past while making gradual improvements to the bakery.”

More on those "gradual improvements" in a second.

The bakery features traditional pastries, fresh bread and cakes for all occasions.

Dixie Lee Bakery is open Thursday to Saturday from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM and then on Sunday from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

In addition, Dixie Lee Bakery's goods will be supplied wholesale to other David Burke restaurants throughout New Jersey and New York.

Now for some of David's future plans for the bakery.

According to the press release, "Chef Burke will later add a retail coffee business with counter service, pastries, breakfast and lunch sandwiches, salads and other grab-n-go provisions."

I am always on board for coffee.

There is still more.

How would you like to take a baking class at this new bakery? You would be learning from a professional and Burke is hoping these will be put together soon!

Plus, Chef David Burke is hoping to host business gatherings, birthdays and other social celebrations at this new bakery as it comes along.

And while we are on the topic of sweet:

Chef David Burke may be known for his playful approach to fine dining and penchant for building grand restaurants, but once upon a time, the restaurateur went to pastry school.

The plan was to one day own a bakery, and the time has come. Burke, who in April opened The GOAT by David Burke in Union Beach, is the new owner of the Bayshore's Dixie Lee Bakery on Main Street in Keansburg.

“The bakery is old school and has a great tradition within the community,” Burke said in a news release. “My grandfather took my mother there when she was a little girl to buy pastries."

Previous owners Mark Onulak and Allison Loori will stay on as managing partners, and employees of the bakery, which opened more than 80 years ago, will remain, according to the release.

The Dixie Lee will continue its retail business, and Burke, a Hazlet native who lives in Atlantic Highlands, eventually will use the bakery to supply baked goods to his restaurants in New York and New Jersey.

“We intend to keep selling the bakery’s familiar classics like doughnuts, black and white cookies, eclairs, breakfast pastries, cakes for all occasions, some breads and more," he said.

Within the next year, Burke plans to also add coffee service, breakfast and lunch sandwiches, salads and other grab-n-go options, plus delivery.

“A local bakery offers much more than delicious pastries, doughnuts and breads to the community,” he said. "It offers a place to meet your neighbors, provides jobs and supports the local economy. It helps us connect and celebrate."

From kitchen to garden: Chef Chris Mumford goes back to his roots

Burke's restaurant empire began in New York, but he has turned his focus toward New Jersey in recent years.

"Our time in New York was great, almost four decades, but our focus now is to build a strong New Jersey restaurant company," he told The Asbury Park Press earlier this year, "and I'm always looking for more business opportunities in Monmouth County."

Chef David Burke Buys Keansburg Bakery: ‘I’ve Always Wanted a Pastry Shop’

Chef David Burke says he got a phone call last fall from a man named Mark Onulak, who told him, “You don’t know me, but I know your restaurants. I own the Dixie Lee Bakery in in Keansburg. I’m 67 and I’m working 80 hours a week. It’s not healthy for me to work this much. I see you’re opening restaurants and are on the move. Let’s talk.”

They did. Burke wound up buying the business, keeping Onulak and his life and business partner Allison Loori on as managing partners of what will now be called David Burke’s Dixie Lee Bakery. The staff of 13 will continue. “In fact, we’ll need more.”

“It wasn’t something I was looking to do,” says Burke, whose restaurant portfolio includes Ventanas in Fort Lee, 1776 in Morristown, Red Horse in Rumson and Drifthouse in Sea Bright, “but I’ve always wanted a pastry shop. I used to work in one. And I grew up in that area.”

In fact, he was familiar with Dixie Lee, and says his parents and grandparents were patrons, enjoying its pastries, cakes, pies and breads. “The owner said, ‘I want to work five or six more years, but I don’t want to keep working 80 hours a week, I want to work 40. So we made a deal, and I’m super excited. It’s a different business for us.

“It’s a big space,” Burke says. “There’s enough room to make a little café. We might want to call it Starburkes, but we’ll see how that goes. Keansburg has a little water park with rides and games, it’s like Asbury Park was 20 years ago.”

The production area is big enough, Burke says, to allow him to produce his signature clothesline bacon—three thick meaty strips pinned on a little tabletop rack—in greater quantity. “We’re thinking we might want to sell it nationally. We can also use the production area to produce sandwiches and other goods to ship to our other restaurants. So there’s a vision coming to fruition here.”

The vision includes making bagels from scratch the old-fashioned way, boiling before baking. “You can order that with cream cheese and smoked salmon. I think they buy and bake bagels there, but we’ll begin making bagels, and you can order that with creamed cheese and smoked salmon.”

Burke’s son, Connor, 34, is getting married Memorial Day Weekend. Burke is not only making the cake, he is officiating at the wedding. “During the pandemic, I got ordained as a minister in the Universal Life Church,” the chef explains. “Three weeks later I’m performing the ceremony for one of my bartenders at 1776. I’ve got two other employees who asked me to marry them. So I’ll get pretty good at it.”
