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:

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

  • 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.

Monkeypox detected in 13 N.J. counties as U.S. declares national health emergency

New Jersey has had at least 214 reported cases of monkeypox spanning 13 counties, state Department of Health officials said Friday.

The federal government declared the monkeypox outbreak a national public health emergency Thursday after more than 7,100 Americans reported contracting the virus. The designation will allow the Biden administration to use federal money and other resources to combat the virus, which causes pimple-like bumps, fever, fatigue and other symptoms in those who are infected.

Infections have been on the rise in New Jersey, from 45 total cases two weeks ago to 214 total cases as of Friday. That’s a 375% increase.

Cases have been diagnosed in 13 counties: Bergen, Burlington, Camden, Essex, Hudson, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset and Union counties.

Hudson County reported the most cases with 67 as of Friday, followed by Essex County with 45 cases and Bergen County with 24 cases, state officials said.

Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Salem, Sussex and Warren counties have not reported a positive case, health department data shows.

In counties with less than five cases, the state has not released the specific number of cases to protect patient privacy, officials said.

Cases have also increased dramatically across the country. In the two-week period from July 20 through Wednesday, reported cases in the U.S. nearly tripled, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

New Jersey residents should remain cautious, but take the declaration of the national public health emergency as a good sign, said Stephanie Silvera, an epidemiologist and professor at Montclair State University.

Public health emergencies allow the government to more easily allocate resources to respond to outbreaks, which is positive, Silvera said. It could also help the public take things more seriously, she said.

“It also hopefully signals to people who may have thought that this is a disease for other people in other places, that they can be affected by it,” Silvera said.

Residents should continue to practice common disease-prevention tactics, including washing your hands and not going out if you feel sick. While not an airborne virus, monkeypox can be spread through droplets and saliva, so wearing a mask if you think you might have been exposed to the virus is a good idea, Silvera said.

Those in high-risk groups should get the monkeypox vaccination, the health department says. High-risk groups include men who have sex with men and anyone who had contact with someone who tested positive or attended an event where there was a known monkeypox case.

But state officials acknowledge it has been tough for some residents to track down a vaccine in New Jersey.

“Vaccine availability has been limited,” Nancy Kearney, a spokeswoman for the Department of Health, said in a statement. “Demand is high and appointments are being filled quickly.”

As of Monday, the state had received about 5,500 doses, she said. An additional 14,520 doses are expected in the coming weeks, including a shipment of 5,900 which should be delivered this week, she said.

There are currently five monkeypox vaccination sites in New Jersey:

The latest U.S. Drought Monitor puts nearly all of New Jersey in some stage of drought.

The very northern and southern counties, including all of Cape May County, are now considered to be in a severe drought. The severe drought area also expanded to include all of Middlesex County, Union and Somerset counties.

The latest map does not take into account the rain that fell Tuesday afternoon.

"The drought story just keeps getting worse, as over a quarter of the state is now classified in Severe Drought. I'm actually surprised we have not progressed to mandatory water restrictions yet," New Jersey 101.5 Chief Meteorologist Dan Zarrow said.

The Department of Environmental Protection did not make any change Thursday to its Drought Watch, which was issued August 9. The watch urges residents and businesses to conserve water use.

The capacity of New Jersey's major reservoirs continues to drop, according to the DEP. The combined Round Valey-Spruce Run reservoirs are just below 60%, the Veolia Reservoir and North Jersey District reservoirs were below 70%.

"We’re continuing to monitor. At this point, we’ll need multiple soaking rain events just to get back to average," DEP spokesman Larry Hajna said.

Only the northern parts of Burlington and Gloucester counties are not in any stage of drought.

Meanwhile, as the calendar transitions from the summer monsoon season to the drier fall and winter months there is no significant rain coming, according to Zarrow.

"Barring a surprise tropical development, we'll be lucky to pick up an inch of rain over the next two to three weeks," Zarrow said.

The forecast for the Labor Day holiday weekend calls for partly to mostly sunny skies with temperatures in the 80s. There's a chance of showers and thunderstorms developing on Sunday and Monday.

Tropical Storm Danielle, the season's first named hurricane, will likely stay in the Atlantic Ocean and not impact the U.S., according to the National Hurricane Center.

Two other disturbances in the Atlantic are being watched for possible development

NJ shuts roller coaster at Six Flags after 19 injured during ride

JACKSON — A roller coaster that was shut for the season early last summer for safety reasons is closed again after 19 passengers were injured Thursday night.

A Six Flags Great Adventures spokesman said five people were sent to a hospital after reporting back pain following a ride on the El Toro roller coaster.

The state Department of Community Affairs, which is responsible for rides and amusement inspections, said that an additional 14 people were treated on site.

Of the five people taken to hospitals one was treated for a neck injury, two for back injuries, and two for mouth and tongue injuries, DCA spokeswoman Tammori Petty-Dixon told New Jersey 101.5.

She said the park reported the incident to an amusement ride incident hotline and said witnesses reported "hearing a loud bang and seeing a jolting of the El Toro train during operation."

"DCA instructed Six Flags Great Adventure to shut down the ride. There is no further information as to the cause of the incident at the present moment. DCA ride inspectors are onsite today to investigate the incident," Petty-Dixon said in a statement.

Holly Cole on the Great Adventure Connoisseurs Facebook page wrote that it felt like the ride hit a pothole after the third drop before the ride turns around.

"A lot of people said they bit their tongue. A few said their backs were hurting and a couple of people said they couldn't breathe for a bit. I thought I might have cracked a tooth," Cole said.

New Jersey 101.5 Chief Meteorologist Dan Zarrow, who is also a former ride operator and coaster enthusiast, said that wooden roller coasters are supposed to be rough and exciting.

"That is part of the appeal. But, obviously, they are not supposed to injure guests. Such accidents are usually a result of some sort of catastrophic failure," Zarrow said.

Zarrow ranked El Toro 6th on his ultimate ranking of New Jersey's 50 roller coasters but it is not a personal favorite.

"I find it way too fast way and too intense. Getting stapled into the lap bars hurts. Plus, safety issues left El Toro completely out of commission for much of the 2021 season - its future reliability is uncertain," Zarrow said.

The ride reopened this season after a partial derailment in June 2021 and failed to return to the station.

After NJ closes roller coaster, Six Flags experts recommend repairs

JACKSON — A section of the El Toro roller coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure was found to need repair following an incident Thursday night that has kept the ride closed since.Nineteen people were injured including five who were hospitalized for treatment of a neck injury, two for back injuries, and two for mouth and tongue injuries, according to the state Department of Community Affairs, which inspects and regulates amusements.DCA spokeswoman Tammori Petty-Dixon said witnesses reported "hearing a loud bang and seei...

JACKSON — A section of the El Toro roller coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure was found to need repair following an incident Thursday night that has kept the ride closed since.

Nineteen people were injured including five who were hospitalized for treatment of a neck injury, two for back injuries, and two for mouth and tongue injuries, according to the state Department of Community Affairs, which inspects and regulates amusements.

DCA spokeswoman Tammori Petty-Dixon said witnesses reported "hearing a loud bang and seeing a jolting of the El Toro train during operation."

A visitor to Six Flags Great Adventure on Monday said the Plaza del Carnival section of the park where El Toro is located is closed off. No activity was observed on the 19-story wooden coaster.

Six Flags spokesman Gabriel Daretta said that the park's initial review of the ride indicates the primary and back-up safety systems of the ride made sure the train completed its ride cycle safely.

"Experts discovered a section of the ride sub-structure that requires repair. The ride will remain closed to complete the review and make necessary repairs," Daretta said.

When repairs are complete the ride will be inspected again by the park and the DCA as well as an independent ride safety expert.

"Once approved by our engineers, maintenance, and operations professionals, the ride will reopen," Daretta said.

He did not disclose a timetable for the repairs and eventual reopening.

Petty-Dixon said the department's investigation is "currently active" and had no additional comment.

Holly Cole on the Great Adventure Connoisseurs Facebook page wrote that it felt like the ride hit a pothole after the third drop before the ride turns around.

An unidentified Six Flags worker told CBS New York the park is aware of the pothole but maintenance cannot make a permanent fix.

The ride reopened this season after a partial derailment in June 2021 and failed to return to the station.
