Basement Waterproofing in Keyport

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 Keyport:

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.

NEW JERSEY — Summertime is full of heat waves and nothing cools down a steamy July or August afternoon like a brisk run through a spray park, whether you\'re 5 or 50.

Patch rounded up the ten most beloved spray parks in the state and trust us, some of these are worth driving to:

North Jersey/NYC area:

Newport Green spray park and beach, Newport area of Jersey City

If you\'re in the Hoboken/Jersey City area, you must check out the spray park and even the beach overlooking the Hudson River in the Newport waterfront section of Jersey City. Sit back and relax in the complimentary Adirondack chairs and take in the Manhattan skyline as your little ones run wild. There is a carousel and a large playground nearby. Plenty of restaurants, cafes and ice cream shops are within walking distance and the spray park is located on the Hudson River waterfront walkway. It\'s just a short stroll north to the Hoboken PATH train and ferry terminal to New York City. The spray park is open 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. daily and is free. There\'s a second splash pad just a 10-minute drive away, the Hamilton Park Splash Pad in Hamilton Park. GPS: Newport Green Park, 14th St, Jersey City, NJ 07310

Splash pad at Van Saun County Park, Paramus

We chose this longtime favorite just because there are so many other things for little ones to do in Van Saun County Park: If they\'ve had enough of the splash pad, there is a zoo, a carousel, a playground, pony rides, short hiking trails that are even good for toddlers and even a little train that goes through the park. Van Saun County Park is simply a wonderful place for children all seasons of the year. GPS: 216 Forest Ave, Paramus, NJ 07652

Northwest Jersey:

Spray park at Randolph Lake Beach, Randolph, NJ

The spray park here is actually fairly small, but it\'s located next to a beautiful swimming lake. Randolph Park Beach has a beach house with changing rooms, paddle boat and canoe rentals, a refreshment stand, trained lifeguards, a separate lane area for lap swimming and a volleyball court. They have season memberships but also do sell day passes for $10 per person on weekdays only. Non residents are not allowed in on weekends unless they are a guest of a member. Learn more: https://www.randolphnj.org/par... GPS: 43 Green Ln, Randolph, NJ 07869

Splash pad at Johnson\'s Corner Farm, Medford

Huh, a splash pad at a farm? Yes! Johnson\'s Corner Farm in Medford offers a bevy of summertime fun activities for children, from blueberry, peaches and sweet corn picking to summer hayrides. They also have small spray park to cool down after working up a sweat toiling in the fields. Learn more: https://www.johnsonsfarm.com/f... GPS: 133 Church Rd, Medford, NJ 08055

Central Jersey:

Union County\'s Wheeler Spray Park, Linden

This big, beautiful spray park is centrally located and has tons of room for the kids to safely run wild, even better yet on a secure rubber surface area so they can\'t slip. This is seriously one of the best spray parks in New Jersey, and it\'s also huge, at 11,000-square-feet. This is the McDaddy of New Jersey spray parks, with a dragon, a pirate ship, a dumping bucket, waterfalls the kids can hide under and even two water slides. There are picnic gazebos and clean bathrooms on site. The spray park is open daily until 6:30 p.m. and there is a small cash-only fee. You can enter for one of the two sessions per day: Session 1: 11:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Session 2: 3:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. Learn more: https://ucnj.org/parks-recreat... And because it can get crowded, here are all the other spray parks in Union County; they may not be as grand, but they\'ll still do the trick: https://ucnj.org/parks-recreat... GPS: 248 W. Stimpson Ave, Linden, NJ 07036

Aberdeen Spray Park, Veterans Memorial Park in Aberdeen

We chose this spray park because it sits right on Cliffwood Beach, so they kids can take a dip in Raritan Bay afterwards. The Aberdeen Spray Park is located in Veterans Memorial Park in Aberdeen and is open every day until 8 p.m. GPS: Veteran\'s Memorial Park, Ocean Blvd. and Lakeshore Drive, Keyport, NJ 07735

Dorbrook Recreation Area, Colts Neck

This is a medium-sized spray park located inside a Monmouth County park, in the heart of Jersey farm and horse country. Monmouth County renovated the spray park in 2016 and it\'s more fun and colorful. There is also a pool, a large playground and picnic areas right in the same park. The only issue is for summer 2021 the sprayground will have free admission but visitors must still reserve a time slot in advance. This is to keep the spray park from getting too crowded. Advance reservations are required for admission; no walk-ups. Register here: registration page (Search Sprayground Fun.) GPS: 353 County Route 537, Colts Neck, NJ 07722

South Jersey/Jersey Shore:

Asbury Park Splash Park (we\'re hearing it\'s temporarily closed, but that may change as summer continues)

Strolling on the Asbury Park boardwalk was meant to happen in summer, and while you\'re there, make sure the kids stop by the spray park, which features a giant tea cup that tips, a huge garden hose that sprays water and water dump buckets. Afterwards, hit one of Asbury\'s many outstanding bars or restaurants, play mini golf or enjoy arcade games, all within walking distance of the spray park. GPS: 915 Ocean Ave, Asbury Park, NJ 07712

Berkeley Island County Park spray park, located in the John C. Bartlett, Jr. County Park in Berkeley

This is a spray park that sits on a pier that juts out into Barnegat Bay. So parents or older kids can fish and crab on the pier while the little ones enjoy the splash pad.

NJ congressman’s bill would use coastal resources to combat climate effects

Building on a previous version that passed the House of Representatives but not the U.S. Senate, legislation newly introduced by Rep. Frank Pallone, D-NJ, and Sen. Chris Murphy, D-CT, aims to use certain natural resources to support coastal flood resilience in the face of climate change.

The Living Shorelines Act of 2021 would focus on dunes, wetlands, and oyster reefs, which Pallone said is a change from prior strategies that emphasized jetties, groins, and beach replenishment, though he added both approaches can work concurrently.

"Keyport is on the bay, so ocean currents are not as strong, but these grants can be used all over," Pallone said, referring to the Jersey Shore town in which his 2019 legislation was unveiled, and the two federal grants proposed in the bill. "We have this as a grant program to give to towns so they can utilize these natural protections, and also another grant program for research into them, and how effective and cost-effective they are."

The grants are worth a combined $55 million.

Earmarking the money for individual towns is key, Pallone said, because each beach town knows what has worked best for it in the past. Some ideas work, some don\'t, and often a hybrid of the different protective efforts is most appropriate.

"You can still have sand replenishment and have dune grasses as well, but there hasn\'t been the emphasis on these natural or living shorelines," Pallone said.

While this is a federal bill, it was suggested to Pallone by New Jersey environmental groups, and stands to benefit the shoreline in the Garden State, with sea level rise worsening year after year.

Pallone said the utilization of these natural resources may improve water quality, filter pollution, better protect coastal wildlife, and reduce carbon levels in the local environment.

The congressman hopes the bill will be fully passed in this session; Vice President Kamala Harris was its lead sponsor in its previous iteration while she was a senator, and Pallone expects the Senate, in which Harris is now the tiebreaking vote, to follow through.

"I think we have a good chance of getting this bill past the Senate, and on the President\'s desk and signed," he said.

In what was the most anticipated season in New Jersey high school baseball history, 2021 lived up to expectations.

Players, coaches and fans throughout the state eagerly awaited its start after the 2020 season was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. So when the first pitch was thrown, the first double found a gap and the initial home run sailed high over the fence, it was an opportunity to welcome the game’s return.

The NJ.com baseball staff jumped on the bandwagon from the first day pitchers and catchers reported back in late March and remained firmly onboard right through the 14-inning Group 3 state championship that proved to be the final game of the year.

We followed the action on a daily basis, keeping an eye on the movers and shakers that made the 2021 season so special.

As part of our postseason package, we’ve taken a deep dive into our statistics. Take a look below at the statewide leaders for triples this season, with more to come over the upcoming days. Stats are based on game information reported to njschoolsports.com during the season.

NJ graduations for lower grades are ridiculous (Opinion)

Is this just me? Is this me having a ‘get off my lawn’ or a ‘back in my day‘ moment? Graduations should be for high stool seniors putting K-12 behind them and for college graduates. That’s it.I have to take a day off work Friday because my daughter is “graduating” from 8th grade. She starts high school in September.

Is this just me? Is this me having a ‘get off my lawn’ or a ‘back in my day‘ moment? Graduations should be for high stool seniors putting K-12 behind them and for college graduates. That’s it.

I have to take a day off work Friday because my daughter is “graduating” from 8th grade. She starts high school in September. So the middle school, just as they did for my son two years ago, is holding a promotion ceremony. (Okay, slight mitigation points for calling it that and not a graduation ceremony, but still.)

It’s a ticketed outdoor event with folding chairs on a huge lawn. It’s cap and gown. Which we had to pay for. It’s professional photography. Which we have to pay for. And it’s being held at 5 p.m. with speeches and honors and a processional. The works.

You know what we got when I “graduated” from middle school? Some advice from a surly teacher like, “Hey idiots, high school next year and sh#% gets real! Now get out of here.”

They’re doing this at even lower grades. Elementary schools are having promotion ceremonies to move on to middle school. Day care and pre-schools are doing legit cap and gown ceremonies for moving on to Kindergarten. Parents stand around teary-eyed talking about what big kids they’ve become. Are you kidding me? By the time these kids graduate high school some of them will have done this three other times. Aren’t we making their real graduation less special? Less meaningful? Aren’t we watering down the concept?

This sounds like a wholly American form of self-aggrandizement. But guess what? Here’s a BBC article on the subject saying it’s been happening everywhere. It’s being done throughout Europe as well as the Far East and the Middle East. Has the whole world gone insane? Are we celebrating mediocrity now? Giving out halfway awards and just starting out ribbons? Is that where we’ve come?

My daughter is a straight A student and I’m very proud of her hard work. That being said, get off my lawn.

Several Keyport and Raritan Students Graduate with College Degree Before High School Degree

Monmouth County, NJ - Imagine being a high school student and celebrating your college graduation! That was the case with several High school students throughout Monmouth County, including several from Keyport High School and Raritan High School in Hazlet. These students chose to enhance their traditional high school curriculum with college-level courses through Brookdale Community College’s Early College High School (ECHS) program. Through the program these students earned their associate degree before graduating from high school.

"We are honored and excited to congratulate ninety-one high school students from nine schools throughout Monmouth County that graduated from College this year," said Brookdale President Dr. David Stout. "These partnerships have saved students both time and money in their pursuit of a college degree while preparing them for the highest level of success after graduation."

Through the ECHS program, graduates from Brookdale earned 60 college credits to earn their associate degree that then will transfer easily to four year colleges. This puts the 91 students 2 years ahead towards their 4-year degree. “This is an affordable option for students to get their college degree and accelerate their path toward a bachelor’s,” said Dr. Sarah McElroy, executive director of Career and Transfer Pathways at Brookdale.

"Students who graduated from the program are prepared for the continued rigors of college," said Margaret Kane, the Principal at Saint John Vianney (SJV), in Holmdel, NJ. “We are confident that our graduates will succeed as they move on to the next stage of their education.” Kelly Robb will be continuing her education at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) next year. "Taking college-level classes while in high school helped me become familiar with future expectations and responsibilities and, as a result, I feel more confident about continuing my education," she said. "I always felt like my teachers at SJV and professors at Brookdale were there to help me succeed every step of the way."

The program is set up conveniently for the students. During the high school student\'s freshman and sophomore years, the Brookdale professors teach the college courses at the high school to complete the first 30 college credits. After that, students begin taking courses at Brookdale’s regional locations in their junior year before becoming full-time Brookdale students and completing their senior year on the College’s Lincroft campus.

“Brookdale’s ECHS Program not only serves as an invaluable conduit through which students can achieve academic and personal success, it also tangibly fosters the notion that education and enlightenment are society’s most precious ‘goods,’ said Cara Novak, associate director of Early College High School.

The class of 2021 had the unique experience of a pandemic. Midway through the high school junior year and for all their senior year, they took their college courses virtually. During the first two and half years, their relationships helped them to get through to their college graduation.

"The partnership with Brookdale Community College has been a huge part of our success here at Neptune High School," said Principal Kevin McCarthy. “The friendships and teamwork of working together as a cohort for the past four years have created a system of strong supports between students and staff. These relationships and support structures helped everyone cope with and succeed within the realm of a worldwide pandemic. They are now approaching high school graduation, having already completed their associate degree, putting them among the elite in our nation. The skills they learned through this rigorous program will serve them throughout their lifetime.”

"We are so proud of the thirty-two students who graduated from BCC," said Raritan High School (RHS) Principal Andrew R. Piotrowski. "It is rewarding for our students and administrators to see their dreams come true over the past four years."

Francesca Giordano feels fortunate to have been an Early College Academy student at RHS. She will be entering as a junior at Montclair State University this fall. "I have developed many special friendships with our close-knit group of classmates while studying both high school and college curriculums," she said. "I am so proud of all of us earning both a high school diploma from RHS along with an Associate of Arts degree from BCC."

All the ECHS graduates, from all the high schools were together for graduation at Brookdale.

"I can honestly say that the (Brookdale) graduation was one of the most satisfying moments of my career,” said Joe Palumbo, director of school counseling at Keyport High School. “To see these 12 young men and women, all of whom I have worked with since their very first day in high school, graduate with their associate degree was unbelievable."

The ECHS academy prepares students to transfer to any university in the country.

Attending Boston University in the fall, Connor North from MHSN said "The Early College Academy was an immense challenge. but definitely worth it. I kept up my confidence of getting through the program, and it all paid off in the end." And classmate Michael Murphy attending the United States Naval Academy, said, “Tons of fun and so glad I did it, especially with such good friends. I really could not have asked for a more fun time out of what I initially thought was an unattainable task.”
