Basement Waterproofing in Loch Arbour

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 Loch Arbour:

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.

With the new regulations about "single-use bags," which many of us use over and over, many people are opting to use carts and bring their purchases out to their car.

Perhaps they forgot their bags or maybe they've been using carts all along. That's great. That's what they're there for.

NOW PUT THEM BACK in the conveniently located cart corrals in the parking lot.

Lots of us have just left them in our car because we didn't want to walk the extra 30 steps to put the cart back. We're busy and need to get home quickly, but it's rude and inconsiderate.

Most of us would never think of scolding someone for not returning their cart.

Maybe we'll give a "hairy eyeball" to the perpetrator, but no one says anything to the offender, UNTIL NOW!

He confronts people and scolds them for not returning their cart to the cart corral. As you might have guessed, he doesn't get a warm response from the people he confronts.

People criticize him for shaming people for their inconsiderate lazy behavior.

Is he a hero, a good Samaritan, or just a busy-body jerk?

The guy has a point. It takes seconds to put the cart back in its place. It's just common courtesy, and there's a real lack of that in society today.

Some might say they pay a kid to take care of the carts. Yeah, his job is to get the carts from the cart corals and bring them to the entrance of the store.

It's a simple thing, but why not just be a mature, responsible adult and put the [email protected]^&ing thing back where it belongs? Thank you!

Thousands of NJ Shoppers Are Guilty of This Every Day

There's the "let me position the cart in exactly the right position so people can still park" person.

The considerate lazy person doesn't want the cart to roll into other cars, so he parks the front wheels on the curb.

And another spot no one can park in because it's just too hard to walk 30 feet to put the cart back!

New Jersey's smallest towns by population

New Jersey's least populated municipalities, according to the 2020 Census. This list excludes Pine Valley, which would have been the third-smallest with 21 residents but voted to merge into Pine Hill at the start of 2022.

Gallery Credit: Michael Symons

#20: Rocky Hill

Population 743 … The population of the Somerset County borough grew by 61 people, 9%, between the 2010 and 2020 censuses, pushing it out of the 20 smallest towns in New Jersey … until the dissolution of Pine Valley pulled it back onto the list.

#16: Andover

#15: West Wildwood

#13: Stockton

#12: Allenhurst

#11: Corbin City

#7: Harvey Cedars

Population 391 … The borough is the smallest of the six municipalities that make up Long Beach Island in Ocean County. All told, the census counts 7,552 full-time residents of LBI – but of course, far more in the summer.

#5: Cape May Point

#4: Loch Arbour

#3: Teterboro

#1: Walpack

Population 7 … The Sussex County township’s population peaked 160 years ago at 851. It was 384 as recently as 1970 but now is the smallest in the state, after the federal government claimed the land through eminent domain for a dam project that was never built – now the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.

The fact that we are even having this debate is a sign of the surreal times we live in. It's also a glaring reminder that the Democratic majority in New Jersey has betrayed the principles that have had voters keep them in power for the past two decades.

As we approach the fall election on Nov. 8, there is a growing feeling that change is coming.

As I have been saying since the 2021 election, the change necessary to bring New Jersey back to normal starts at the local level.

Local elections matter. And local people are rising to the challenge.

As we head into the new school year, more and more school boards are stepping up to challenge the outrageous, graphic, and inappropriate curriculum that sexualizes kids in grade school.

Warren and Watchung are the latest to join the dozens already fighting back on behalf of parents, teachers, and kids.

In Watchung, although the curriculum itself passed, thanks to the courage of one school board member, Amber Murad, the radicals were locked from including it in the social studies classes where parents would not even have the option of "opting out".

Amber is running for County Commissioner and is one of the best candidates I've met in New Jersey. Strong, confident, and capable. Exactly what we need in towns and counties throughout the state.

Check out our conversation here:

If your school district is fighting back let us know by filling out a form HERE.

There has been a buzz for the last year that a new winery is about to open in Voorhees on the site of the former Stafford Farm.

For years, people in the area can remember seeing horses train and run the oval track that was visible to traffic on White Horse and Evesham Roads. This will be the home of Saddlehill Cellars.

It will be a combination vineyard winery and flower garden, with a tasting room and food to pair with their wines.

The property has a long history of agriculture, dating back to 1792 when George Washington granted this property to his personal guard, Lt. John Stafford.

The family maintained the farm for over 225 years and in 2003 received $20 million from the land trust of New Jersey to preserve the property as farmland forever.

The family had always farmed the land or used it for raising and training horses.

In 2005, the Stafford Family sold the property and the new owner used only a very small portion for farming.

The property was then sold in 2021 to Amy and Bill Green, who both grew up in the area and have fond memories of the property.

They have assembled a great team of agricultural professionals and experts to create what they hope will be one of the most impressive wineries in the state.

There are some impressive wineries in South Jersey already, so it's a big task.

There is currently nothing in the near vicinity to offer any direct competition. They plan to harvest some of their crop in the fall of 2023 with bottling and tasting to follow. I'll be there!

How to get from Monmouth/Ocean to the Holland Tunnel without paying tolls

Sometimes even your GPS doesn't know the back way to certain places.

You're going to want to utilize Route 9 north, so if you live anywhere below Sayreville, try to navigate your way there.

Route 9 is known for being a bit of a headache during commuting hours, so the closer to Old Bridge to hop on, the better. Once you are near the Route 18 interchange, Route 9 becomes a 3 lane road, which is much easier to navigate. Routes 34 and Route 35 may also come in handy here.

Take Route 9 north until you reach the entrance to the northbound Garden State Parkway. Obviously the Parkway is a toll road, but fear not!

Once you get on the Parkway, you'll be just a few miles from the Driscoll Bridge. It's shocking there isn't a fatal accident on this bridge every single day.

As you cross the Driscoll, you'll start seeing signs for the New Jersey Turnpike. Go ahead and give the middle finger to the entrance and continue northbound on the Parkway.

The price to drive the Turnpike from Exit 11: The Garden State Parkway to the Holland Tunnel is $7.40. For commuters, it's the same going back. Imagine paying $14.80 per day to drive 20 miles each way? No thanks.

Continue along the Parkway until you reach Exit 140, US 22 / Route 82 East (Hillside). You've now successfully dodged all Parkway tolls, exiting about 4 miles before the Union toll plaza.

Follow signs for US 22 East. Stay in the middle lane as it gets a bit confusing for the uninitiated. There are also a ton of fast food options and gas stations on this route, by the way.

As you cruise along, you'll notice the back of Newark Airport to your right. Congratulations! You also just figured out how to get to the Newark Airport without paying a toll. It’s warranted: Give the airport the middle finger too. You're beating the system ... and Newark Airport stinks.

Back to focusing on the road. Before you know it, you're on the Pulaski Skyway, one of the ugliest and most neglected roadways in North America.

Soon enough you'll be in Jersey City. You will want to remain in the left lane, as 1-9 veers off to the right, and the road you're on becomes Route 139 East. The sign will say Hoboken / Holland Tunnel.

The lane situation is absolute chaos. You've got two three-lane roads separated by a divider eventually merging into one six-lane road where people are doing the Jersey Slide like it’s 1978. Straight ahead is the Holland Tunnel.

*The Jersey Slide is a driving maneuver, common in NJ, where you travel from the farthest lane all the way to the other side in one quick motion to make a turn. Other variations include getting on the highway and immediately crossing the lanes of traffic necessary to get in the left lane as soon as possible.

If you are planning on going out in Hoboken, cut a left. For Jersey City, go right. And if you're headed into the Big Apple by way of your vehicle, all the best to you. You will have to have to pay a $16 toll for that crossing.

NFL Draft 2022: N.J.’s Kenny Pickett explains why he’ll be the 1st QB to come off the board

The 2022 NFL Draft isn’t exactly the deepest when it comes to quarterbacks. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

After all, the NFL is a quarterback-driven league and several teams are desperately searching for signal-callers. That includes the Carolina Panthers, who own the No. 6 pick overall, and the Atlanta Falcons, who pick at No. 8.

And don’t forget the New Orleans Saints have a pair of first-round picks (No. 16 and 19) after their blockbuster trade with the Philadelphia Eagles, putting them in position to move up the draft board if they decide to go after a quarterback.

All that bodes well for Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett, who believes he’ll be the first QB to hear his name called later this month by commissioner Roger Goodell in Las Vegas, Nev. Per Pro Football Talk:

I think so,” Pickett recently told Breneman Shows Up with Adam Breneman. “I think there’s a lot of reasons for it. You look at the game now and how it’s changing. ... I’m a mobile guy that [played] in a West Coast pro-style system. I started at a program that was 5-7 the first year I was in. We left as ACC champions, 11-2. So I know how to win. I know the process it takes to get there. It’s never an easy thing and I’ll make that transition, I feel like, faster in the NFL now because [of] that experience ... that I know how to go about my business as a pro, kind of being an older guy. At the end of the day, that’s what ... coming around to the position, it’s like, ‘Can you win? Do you know how to handle all the things it takes to be a quarterback?’ I definitely do. So I think I am QB1.”

Pickett, the Oakhurst, N.J. native who starred at Ocean Township High School, finished third in voting for the 2021 Heisman Trophy Award.

Pickett was the first New Jersey native to be a finalist for the Heisman since former Michigan star and current New York Giants defensive back Jabrill Peppers in 2016. Pickett had been hoping to be the fourth N.J. high school football product to earn the Heisman Trophy and the first since 1999, when it went to Overbrook product Ron Dayne, a running back at Wisconsin who went on to a career with the Giants.

Pickett returned to Pittsburgh for a fifth season in 2021, taking advantage of the NCAA’s eligibility give-back for playing through the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, and had a record-breaking year. Pickett passed for 4,319 yards with 42 touchdowns to eclipse school marks and led the Panthers to their first Atlantic Coast Conference title.

N.J.’s Kenny Pickett, new Steelers QB, takes out full-page ad

We have thick skin in New Jersey, so we can handle this: University of Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett, drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers, placed a full-page ad in the Pittsburgh Gazette, proclaiming he’s a Pittsburgh guy now.

You raise a quarterback, coach him, mentor him, give him the New Jersey toughness to make it in the NFL and, well ... we’ll always have Ocean Township High, Kenny.

In his ad, Pickett — chosen with the 20th pick of the draft — said: “I will always treasure my five years at the University of Pittsburgh. I want to thank all the coaches, players, staff, friends and especially the fans who supported me during my college career. ... I’m proud to call myself as Pitt Man. The city of Pittsburgh is now my home.”

Last Thursday night, Pickett — holding his draft party in Loch Arbour, N.J., on the Jersey Shore — received the call that changed his life.

“Hey, what you doing tonight, man?” Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said. “You all watching TV? What you all got going on? Hey, we’re about to make you a Pittsburgh Steeler.”

Pickett had only to move his gear across the parking lot at Heinz Field.

“We circled the globe, or at least the United States, the last several months, exploring and researching, it’s funny, we ended up with the guy next door,” Tomlin said. “There’s just a great deal of comfort and we’re excited.”

Despite all this Pittsburgh talk, Pickett, 24, lived walking distance from Ocean Township High, where he was a star, and he has still come by to throw, run and lift. Instead of uprooting for Florida, Arizona or California as many NFL prospects do, Pickett commuted to QB guru Tony Racioppi’s facility in Martinsville.

Pickett will compete with Mitch Trubisky and Mason Rudolph for the right to replace retired Ben Roethlisberger.
