Basement Waterproofing in Little Silver

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 Little Silver:

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.

Please check their website for weather-related changes. All safety guidelines will be followed. The event is free with a suggested donation of $5.

ABOUT THE PERFORMERS

SHOTGUN BILL ANANIA - Shotgun Bill is...Bill Anania. I consider myself a late bloomer singer/songwriter. Playing and living in Monmouth County, NJ, you’ll find me performing at events and venues in this area. I worked with Frank Patrouch in “Frank and Bill” since 2012. We released three CD projects, Frank Patrouch “Whiskey and Revenge”, Frank & Bill “ One Good Line” and “Unplugged and Uncouth”. In 2016, I also released my first solo CD, “The B-Sides”, and in the summer of 2017, I released my second solo project, “Train Cars, Prison Bars...and a White Guitar”. Working with my friend Scott “Tango Kid” Yetka, my next album, “Shotgun Bill with the Tango Kid – Lonesome Cowboys”, was released in April 2019. During the pandemic, we released the “Quarantined” EP. The summer of 2021 will see the release of our fifth project, “Shotgun Bill with the Tango Kid- Lack of Luxury”. Also, you can hear all my tunes on Spotify, Itunes, Amazon, Band Camp and CD Baby! From time to time I venture out “hawking” my music...and making a good try at it. So keep your eye open for my show postings and new releases.

JIM CRAWFORD - He was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and at the age of seven emigrated to Canada and five years later to Kearny, NJ, where he finished school before joining the US Army in 1964. Jim started playing for friends in an Irish Bar in Kearny called The Tyrone House which led to gigs in other local pubs in Northern NJ and had a good following for several years before he settled into work and his marriage. After retiring as a union electrician, Jim got back into his music and started writing songs that were based on his life experiences. This resulted in two CDs, “Team of my Father” and “Yelling At Me”, that were well received by the local music community. Jim has performed solo and with groups in Albert Music Hall in Waretown, BOTMA in Little Silver, The Cafe Improv in Princeton, The Cafe Artiste in Neptune and numerous coffee houses in the Monmouth area.

AUDRA MARIEL - Martin Howth is the solo looping project of jazz vocalist Audra Mariel. The music has been described as ethereal, even meditative, but also features catchy hooks and thoughtful lyrics. All loops are generated live, without the use of tracks nor additional digital effects (other than the looping effect itself). Martin Howth’s debut album, “The Wayward Warbler”, was released in December 2018, and she is currently recording her next full-length album to be released at the end of summer, 2021.

FIRE IN THE GARDEN - Alissa Pecora, Frank Patrouch, Al Milewski and Bill Anania, each came from their own musical and songwriting histories to form fast friendships…after repeatedly bumping into each other at the same restaurants in Keyport where they live. Alissa’s poetry has enchanted listeners for some years before turning that and her sultry voice, toward writing songs with her husband, Frank. Frank, already with his own, long history of songwriting and guitar virtuosity, has performed from England to New York, from Nashville to New Orleans. Al has added his violin, guitar and vocals to bands playing folk/blues, Brazilian and gypsy swing. These three started to perform together about a year ago and have proudly contributed their skills to Musicians on a Mission. Their repertoire is broad, ranging from worldly-wise folk and rock to seductive blues to tranquil jazz.

Short Hills’ Missy’s Miracle Scholarship Fund Announces 2021 Recipient

NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ — The NJ Sharing Network Foundation’s Missy’s Miracle Scholarship Fund has awarded a scholarship to Reilly Williams of Little Silver, NJ, for her passion and dedication to raising awareness of organ and tissue donation. Williams was presented with her scholarship award at the NJ Sharing Network’s headquarters in New Providence during a private ceremony with her family members in the Landscape of Life Meditation Garden.

Williams is a 2021 graduate of the Academy of Allied Health and Science in Neptune, NJ. She plans to attend the University of Virginia in the Fall. Her connection to donation began in 2017 following the tragic death of Maeve Annette Behan, a local 3-year-old girl that Williams babysat. Though Williams’ pain over the loss of her friend was unbearable, she was inspired that Behan’s organ donations saved the lives of a one-year-old boy, a one-year-old girl and two adult men.

Williams honored Behan by organizing “Team Maeve the Brave” for the NJ Sharing Network Foundation’s 5K Celebration of Life event. A few years later, Williams babysat another little girl whose life was saved with a heart transplant. Williams considers herself lucky to have experienced both sides of organ donation and transplantation, and she feels grateful for the opportunity to share their stories with others to raise awareness.

The NJ Sharing Network Foundation’s scholarship program provides an opportunity to recognize and award graduating high school senior advocates whose lives have been touched by organ and tissue donation and transplantation. Missy’s Miracle Scholarship Fund was created to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Melissa “Missy” Rodriguez of Short Hills’ life-saving liver transplant. Rodriguez was the first 10-year-old to ever receive a successful liver transplant to save her life.

Now more than 30 years later, Missy continues to lead an active, fulfilling life as an accomplished athlete, a successful student earning two graduate degrees, and, most importantly, the mother of three healthy boys. Established in 2015, Missy’s Miracle Scholarship Fund has raised more than $90,000 towards scholarships for high school students and additional programs supporting organ and tissue donation awareness.

“I am proud to join forces with NJ Sharing Network to help educate our local communities about the power of organ and tissue donation,” said Rodriguez. “Reilly serves as a perfect example of what it means to take an active role in supporting these important outreach efforts.”

Scholarship applicants were measured on academic achievement, community and volunteer efforts, extracurricular activities and advocacy for organ and tissue donation. The application process included a thorough review by a committee of NJ Sharing Network Foundation Board members and volunteers.

“We are grateful for the generous support of Missy’s Miracle Scholarship Fund and their ongoing commitment to rewarding students who share a commitment to our life-saving mission,” said Elisse E. Glennon, Executive Director of the NJ Sharing Network Foundation. “We know that Reilly and all of our scholarship recipients will continue to be strong leaders in educating others about donation and transplantation as they move forward to begin college.”

According to NJ Sharing Network, there are nearly 4,000 New Jersey residents currently waiting for a life-saving transplant, and one person in New Jersey dies every three days waiting for a transplant. Just one organ and tissue donor can save eight lives and enhance the lives of over 75 people. To learn more, get involved and register as an organ and tissue donor, visit www.NJSharingNetwork.org.

Men’s Lacrosse’s Lunney ’13 Inducted into NE10 Hall of Fame

MANSFIELD, Mass. –

One of the most dominant scoring forces in Merrimack College men’s lacrosse history, Corey Lunney, has been announced as an inductee into the NE10 Hall of Fame in the Class of 2021, as released by the league office Monday.

The 2013 graduate is one of the most decorated players in the program’s history, as he sits fourth all-time in Warrior history in points and third all-time in goals. He also racked up a bevy of honors, including 2013 USILA DII National Player of the Year, three consecutive NEILA All-New England Team Player of the Year honors to conclude his career, two All-American selections and was a three-time NE10 First Team honoree and was tabbed the conference’s player of the year in 2013.

“Corey was an excellent player, leader and representative of our program over his four years,” said Merrimack College men’s lacrosse head coach, Mike Morgan. “He excelled in the classroom, on the field as well as off. Corey started off as a pure shooter and developed the other parts of his game to become one of the best players in the country.”

The Little Silver, N.J. native burst onto the scene in North Andover in the spring of 2010 when he topped the team in scoring with 46 goals and 58 points, which earned him NE10 Rookie of the Year honors and a spot on the league’s all-conference second team. He set his single game career-high in goals with seven that year in just his fifth collegiate game against Pace. He followed the performance up his sophomore season with another team-leading 39 goals and 53 points and was tabbed a first team choice in the NE10’s all-conference honors and picked up his first NEILA All-New England Division II Player of the Year award.

He ticked up his dominance in his concluding two seasons with the Warriors, as he set a career-high in points (59) his junior year and earned his first All-American pick. In his senior season, he had a fitting end to his time in North Andover, as he matched his career-high in points at 59 and claimed the USILA DII National Player of the Year award to go along with a slew of other national and conference level awards.

“Corey took over wearing #14 from Greg Rogowski, up to that date the best player in school history, and lived up to the very high expectations that came with it,” said Morgan. “Our Merrimack College lacrosse family would like to congratulate Corey on this great accomplishment.”

In all, Lunney totaled 175 goals, 54 assists and 229 points in his illustrious career.
