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.


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.

David Gard/The Star-Ledger

LOCH ARBOUR — Sophie Bubis fought a protracted legal battle to dismantle a wall of sand topped with trees that blocked the view of the ocean from her Loch Arbour home.

Bubis got what she wanted in 2007 — the barrier came down.

Now, the home she bought with her late husband in 1978 is destroyed by Hurricane Sandy and the 89-year-old isn’t sure when — or if — she’ll return.

"I’m going to have to demolish the house because there’s no repairing this," she said.

Sandy battered the two-story home. A sticker affixed near where the front door once stood declares the home unsafe.

Ragged drywall hangs from exposed studs on the first floor. The wood floor is buckled and covered in sand. Kitchen appliances tossed around in the storm rest on top of one another. A baby grand piano Bubis said once sat in her living area is simply gone.

"Everything was washed away," she said.

The home sits on the corner of Ocean Place and Edgemont Avenue in the tiny seashore town just north of Asbury Park. One side overlooks the ocean. Another side faces Deal Lake.

"I had what nobody else in Loch Arbour had," she said — and she battled for it.

Bubis’ legal fight began in 1995 when a couple — Jack and Joyce Kassin — purchased a former beach club to use as their private beach.

The Kassins built what they called a dune, but what Bubis called a berm along the edge of their property near Ocean Place. Bubis took Jack Kassin to court for blocking the view, as well as public access to the beach.

After a series of appeals, the state Supreme Court in 2005 ruled that Kassin had to remove the sand and trees. Kassin, who could not be reached for comment appealed on the municipal level, asking for a variance if he reduced the height of the berm. That request was denied.

Despite the destruction that Sandy wrought, Bubis said she has "not an ounce of regret" about her legal battle to remove the barrier.

David Gard/The Star-Ledger

"I’m not sorry I did it," she said.

Loch Arbour Mayor Paul Fernicola said that before the storm, a berm was built across the village beach and the Kassins’ property that was the same size — if not larger — than the disputed wall of sand Kassin built. Fernicola estimated that the town’s berm was 15 to 20 feet high.

"The surge would have completely overtopped his berm," Fernicola said of Kassin’s berm.

Now Bubis and her family don’t know whether she’ll return to the home.

Her daughter, Shelley Bubis, said, "We’re very undecided right now. There are a lot of things in play."

"We’re still at the very beginning. That’s going to take time. No one’s going to be rebuilding for God knows how long," she said.

N.J. says post-Sandy discussion is a plot to take advantage of victims

$24M beach fill project for Loch Arbour through Deal gets started

LOCH ARBOUR – Over the objections of some environmentalists, a $24 million beach fill project has started here and is expected to be completed by March 1, pending major weather delays.

Three Jersey Shore towns — Loch Arbour, Allenhurst and Deal — will get sand in the beach replenishment project, which is being carried out by the Army Corps of Engineers. It will restore more than 1.1 million cubic yards of sand to the towns’ beaches. The amount of fill is equivalent to 51 football fields.

The federal investment in the project is $16.9 million, which is 65% of the total cost. Rep. Frank Pallone, D-New Jersey, said state and local funds will make up the remaining cost.

Pallone, who has been a longtime advocate for beach replenishment along the Jersey Shore, called the project critical to protecting the beach and local communities.

“Coastal restoration projects like beach replenishment ensure that our beaches and infrastructure remain resilient to bad weather events. I would like to thank the Army Corps of Engineers for their continued dedication to this important project in our state," Pallone said.

The project received pushback from a coalition of environmental and beach access groups led by local chapters of the Surfrider Foundation and Sierra Club, who met on the beach in Deal in October to oppose it, a week after the replenishment was announced.

The coalition contends that beach replenishment does more to protect wealthy homeowners, damages the coastal ecology, and, ultimately, the added sand washes back into the sea and has to be replaced.

The group wants New Jersey lawmakers to reject a bill that would double the amount of money the state puts toward shore protection projects each year from $25 million to $50 million.

The bill passed the state Senate and currently sits in committee in the state Assembly.

At the very least, the coalition wants a new funding formula that would require beachfront property owners to pay the lion's share of the costs instead of putting the burden on taxpayers. By the coalition's count, over $1.5 billion has been spent on New Jersey beach replenishment dating back to the 1980s.

This new round of beach fill follows a federal beach renewal project that stretched from Manasquan Inlet to Sea Bright that started in 1994 and finished in 2001.

That project area was replenished again following superstorm Sandy, using 8 million cubic yards of sand.

In 2015, the area from southern Deal to Loch Arbour, which wasn't included in the original project, was filled.

Pallone said beaches where replenishment has been done get new fill about every six years on average.

This is a fun article or maybe I should say this is a delicious article. The best waffles possibly in New Jersey! We all love waffles, don't we? Waffles are pancakes delicious cousin and they are not just for breakfast. For me my favorite way to eat waffles is simple. I love good maple syrup and butter, that's it, just plain and simple. Make sure it's good maple syrup and butter, not fake and processed.

Waffles are a morning breakfast staple and most restaurants that do breakfast, do waffles of some kind. However, now it's great for lunch or dinner. In fact, according to Yelp's pick as the "best" waffle house, they promote their waffles as "sweet" (breakfast) and "savory" (lunch) plus it has a great name.

Yelp lists the Funky Cow Cafe in Hammonton as one of the best waffle houses in New Jersey. I have passed this cafe so many times traveling through Downtown Hammonton but never stopped. Now that I've seen the ratings and reviews I am going to the Funky Cow Cafe. The Funky Cow Cafe is located at 224 Bellevue Ave, Hammonton, NJ 08037.

According to the Funky Cow website "Dishes made with the freshest ingredients and homemade sauces that take your pallet to the next level of cravings." Some of their favorite waffle dishes include the "S'Mores Explosion", "Apple A-La-Moo", and Lola's "Cuban".

Locally, Yelp named two restaurants near us for great waffles, which are a short drive here in Ocean County.

Shut up and Eat located at 804 Main St, Toms River, NJ 08753 is one of the two highlighted here in Ocean County. Definitely should be on your waffle list.

The Brownstone Pancake Factory located at 979 Cedar Bridge Ave, Brick Township, NJ 08723 is the second restaurant highlighted by Yelp in Ocean County for fantastic waffles.

So have you tried the Funky Cow Cafe? How about Shut Up and Eat in Toms River or the Brownstone Pancake Factory in Brick Township? Let us know your reviews. Post your comments below.

Locals know after before Memorial Day and after Labor Day is the best time to visit Doo Wop Diner.





While Ponzio's diner food is about as good as it gets, their bakery is outstanding. The are more than the rotating case of cakes kind of place.



Let's be honest. Would you eat lobster from any old diner? Probably not. Skylark uses huge chunks of fresh Maine lobster for their lobster rolls. That makes all of the difference.



Mustache Bill's creativity is unmatched. Of course, the famous mustache pancakes are a must, but chefs are pancake artists making designs of all kinds.


For pure nostalgia purposes, a visit to Summit Diner is necessary. It's believed to be the oldest operating diner in New Jersey. They've been in operation since 1929.

Rainbow Diner is one of the most community minded diners in New Jersey. They were one of the first in the state to provide dining options during COVID.


CHEGG has been featured on so many foodie specials it's hard to keep count. While all of the food is amazing, the wings are the stars at CHEGG. They are worth the 2 and a half hour wait to get in during the summer.

Early on, CHEGG as many call it was a diner. In many ways it is still very diner-like. I think it can be considered a restaurant or diner even though I may catch some heat for this choice.

This is more than a diner. It's a destination, especially if you're ready to "eat heavy." If I had to give an example of the perfect New Jersey diner, it would be Tick Tock.

The 10 best New Jersey sports bars to watch Giants games

We didn’t need an excuse to drink and watch sports at the bar, but now we definitely have one. For the first time in years, the New York Giants are ... good?

The G-Men are arguably the biggest surprise in the NFL after a 5-1 start under new coach Brian Daboll. With back-to-back wins over the Green Bay Packers and Baltimore Ravens, the playoffs are seriously in play for the team that hasn’t made the postseason since 2016.

So we’re definitely watching. But where? There’s no place better to watch football than at a sports bar surrounded by televisions, fellow friends, booze and lots of food. And it should come as no surprise that New Jersey is loaded with great sports bars.

Here are the 10 best sports bars to watch the Giants:

Obal’s Inn, Bloomfield

COVID-19 nearly wiped this Essex County haunt out, but the community rallied around Broad Street dive bar and thankfully it’s still open and serving some of the state’s best ribs. There are plenty of TVs, pool and shuffleboard in the back room for some halftime entertainment. They have a strong selection of beers on tap. But don’t overthink it, they have the crispest Yuengling you’ll find this side of the Hudson. Obal’s don’t serve their vaunted ribs on the weekend — but the wings, burgers and bar pies more than make up for it.

Redd’s Restaurant & Bar, Carlstadt

Want to be as close to the game as possible without actually attending? Redd’s is a mile from MetLife — so close you’ll basically be able to hear the cheers (or boos) during the game while you drink by the liter and munch on pizza and burgers. Or if you want to actually go to the game, Redd’s offers shuttle service to the stadium.

The Clif Tavern, Clifton

The Clif was built in the 1800s but is now a sizable bar with plenty of TVs, a gorgeous pool table and some very inventive eats. You can mix any two types of wing sauces — garlic parmesan and lemon pepper is a winning combo. The Sunday drink deals are a draw on their own — who doesn’t love three buck domestic bottles!

Black Bear Bar & Grill, Hoboken

The No. 1 sports bar in New Jersey on’s list, you’ll find no shortage of televisions at Black Bear Bar & Grill — they have more than 50 of them. The bar is celebrating its 25th year of serving Hoboken bites, booze and football in 2022, the buffalo chicken quesadilla, Hoboken burger with egg and Taylor ham and homemade mac n’ cheese are all terrific.

Lucky 7 Tavern, Jersey City

There are drinking holes with more televisions and more expansive menus throughout Jersey City. Good for them! None of them have the divey charm of Lucky’s, which is covered in stickers, flyers and graffiti. It came in at No. 3 in’s Jersey City bar rankings for good reason. Football specials include delicious bloody marys for five dollars, one dollar hot dogs and divine breakfast totchos. Yes, breakfast totchos. Eggs, cheese, sour cream and jalapeños atop tater tots. Thank me later.

Deal Lake Bar + Co., Loch Arbour

Asbury Park’s bar and restaurant scene gets plenty of attention, but venture a little north and you’ll land at one of the best sports bars in the state right on Deal Lake. Plenty of TVs for pigskin, Deal Lake Bar + Co also has plenty of meal deals — cheesesteak egg rolls and fried cheese curds are guaranteed winners, as are $6 High Noons.

Jack’s Goal Line Stand, Long Branch

With more than 50 TVs throughout three different bar areas, arcade and classic games in the back and more than 60 beers on tap, even if the Giants don’t win you’re assured to have a good time at Jack’s. The ribs and wings are revered, as well. This building opened as a hostel in 1874 but has been renovated into one of the state’s best bars.

Frenchy’s Sports Bar & Grill, Roselle Park

New sports bars open all the time. How many from 1964 are still around? A beloved Union County bar, Frenchy’s is a great spot for no frills football fun. Watch the Giants win while munching on their excellent bar pies and wings. The divey, low-key atmosphere is a ton of fun, even if football isn’t on — it was No. 3 on’s list of best sports bars.

Miracle Sports Pub, Toms River

The Giants having a good season is a miracle, so why not celebrate at the Miracle Sports Pub? A long and narrow bar that can get rowdy (in a good way) during Giants games, it was No. 10 on’s list of best sports bars. Part of that was for the atmosphere, and part of that was for the grub — including breakfast options like breakfast flatbreads with eggs and pork roll.

Zagursky’s Bar & Grill, Whippany

It doesn’t look like much, Zagursky’s is just an unassuming tan building with an old fashioned sign above its door. But once you’re in there are plenty of TVs football, diehard fans and delicious bar pies and burgers. The place has been open for more than 70 years, and you can feel that history as soon as you walk in.

OCEANPORT, NJ — Not only did the first-ever brewery open at Fort Monmouth earlier this October (Birdsmouth Beer, which opened Oct. 15), but a massive new sports bar and restaurant is now slated to open there as well.

The sports bar will be called Baseline Social; renderings of how it will look are above. Construction on the bar is underway now and it is not scheduled to open until the spring of 2023; an exact month is not yet known.

Both the brewery and the sports bar are located at The Commissary at Baseline, which was the old grocery store when Fort Monmouth was an active Army base.The Commissary is located at 675 Oceanport Way in Oceanport.

Baseline Social is owned by Andrea Pappas, Greg Bartz and Phil Villapiano, the owners of Deal Lake Bar + Co, an American-style bar/restaurant with three open bars and a large outdoor dining area in nearby Loch Harbor.

The trio of Monmouth County restaurateurs they wanted to bring that same kind of atmosphere to the old Fort Monmouth Army base.

The sports bar will bring a "one-of-a-kind immersive dining and entertainment experience to Fort Monmouth" with an "expansive LED viewing wall perfect for watching the game" and a 38-seat platform lounge.

Baseline Social is not just for watching sports: The bar will have five virtual golf bays with full-swing technology will enable guests to play a variety of sports and games.

There will also be an outdoor fire pit lounge for three-season access, with infrared heaters.

The brewery is located inside, as is MGT Foods, a third-generation family-owned business that relocated there from Keyport this fall. MGT is the maker of food brands such as Mr. Green Tea Ice Cream, Mr. Mochi, The Bear & The Rat Cool Treats for Dogs and Eat Mud Non-Dairy Ice Cream.

Baseline Social will be the third and final tenant of that space.

The Commissary is owned by Red Bank-based commercial real estate developer Denholtz Properties, which plans to next move forward with its redevelopment of the former Fort Monmouth Warehouse District: 2,400 square feet of modern spec industrial/flex space spread across three buildings.

Fort Monmouth development boom well underway: New Fort Monmouth Craft Brewery Will Open This Saturday

Developer Ralph Zucker, who owns Bell Works in Holmdel, wants to build luxury condos at Fort Monmouth and add a waterfront walkway.

The area of the fort where the officers used to live, a stately row of brick homes called Officers' Row has been turned into luxury houses for sale, with prices starting in the $700,000s.
