Basement Waterproofing in Marlboro

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 Marlboro:

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.

A NJ woman who fatally struck a pedestrian while high is set to be resentenced due to errors in how the term was decided, reports say.

MARLBORO, NJ - A Marlboro woman previously sentenced to four years in state prison after fatally hitting a pedestrian while high is set to be resentenced due to apparent errors in how the term was decided, according to reports.

Amy Amkhanitsky, now 20, struck 69-year-old Richard Lockwood III on Route 34 near Triangle Drive in Old Bridge on Feb. 5, 2020. Amkhanitsky was charged with first-degree manslaughter, reckless vehicular homicide and aggravated assault following a blood test revealing marijuana in her system, the Asbury Park Press reported.

She was sentenced in Middlesex County Superior Court earlier this month, but an appellate court said Tuesday that Middlesex County Superior Court Judge Benjamin Bucca didn’t fully weigh the aggravating and mitigating factors that determined the sentencing of the Monmouth County woman, a panel of appeals judges said, per NJ.com.

The resentencing will take place within 30 days and involve a different judge, APP added.

Previous coverage: Morganville Woman, 19, Killed Man While Driving High: Prosecutor

Amkhanitsky was first sentenced in August 2021, with the judge applying one aggravating factor: the need to prevent the Marlboro woman and others from breaking the law, Per NJ.com. Amkhanitsky, however, cited multiple mitigating factors, including her not having a prior record, her unlikeliness to offend again and her age – she was just 17 at the time of the crash.

Her lawyer asked the judge to reconsider, and another sentencing took place in October 2021 where Amhanitsky explained her academic pressures, mental health struggles (including suffering from PTSD) and Soviet Union refugee family history, NJ.com reported.

The judge refuted that the comments were “all about her” and did not change her four-year sentence. A February 2022 sentencing at the appellate level also did not change the sentence length, APP said.

But Tuesday’s proceedings vacated the sentence and ordered a new hearing, finding an “abuse of discretion” from the previous judge that was not supported by “competent and credible evidence in record,” NJ.com reported.

Earlier discrepancies, such as a press release from the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office reporting that Lockwood was struck by a hit-and-run driver, were also found, the panel said, according to NJ.com.

“Although we acknowledge that sentencing requires a qualitative assessment of aggravating and mitigating factors, it is difficult to comprehend how an objective analysis ... could result in the same sentence three times, and by way of different combinations of the sentencing factors,” the panel wrote, per the publication.

Will Post Office in NJ be able to handle the 2022 holiday season?

The United States Postal Service is gearing up for the 2022 holiday delivery season.

The United States Postal Service is gearing up for the 2022 holiday delivery season. Holiday season preparedness reflects strategic investments and operational precision improvements made as part of Delivering for America, USPS’ 10-year plan.

The 655,000-employee postal service workforce includes 100,000 workers converted to full-time since January 2021, and more than 41,000 part-time workers have been converted to full-time since January 2022, said USPS spokesman, Xavier Hernandez.

With a surge in package and letter volume always around the holidays, Hernandez said the USPS has a plan in place to deliver effectively and on time to America.

That includes tech investments of about $40 billion that the USPS rolled out around the country ensuring they can process for all customers and make sure all holiday wishes come true.

“Now we can process almost 60 million packages a day,” Hernandez said. That is compared to 53 million this holiday season in 2021.

The USPS is looking forward to hiring 28,000 seasonal employees as well as an additional 1,000 truck drivers, along with letter carriers, and processing team members, Hernandez said.

The Postal Service’s 222,682 fleet vehicles are ready to deliver for the holidays, too. To handle package volume, 1,900 additional trailers have been leased for the peak season.

Also, in the past 12 months, more than 6,000 computer tablets have been deployed on workroom floors to better equip processing and delivery supervisors with tracking and moving mail and packages swiftly.

In New Jersey, the USPS has been recruiting all summer for pre-career jobs starting at around $19 depending on the job.

“We’ve been looking to add about 400 new employees each month. That effort will continue through the holidays,” he said.

New Jersey is also home to two of the latest and greatest new processing machines that will help process up to 60 million packages a day, he added.

“We look forward to delivering for all of our New Jersey customers,” Hernandez said.The USPS is hosting job fairs during one-day events at postal locations across New Jersey.

The Post Office is recruiting for mail delivery positions called Rural Carrier Assistants (they deliver to mailboxes along rural routes) or City Carrier Assistants (who drive around in big postal trucks delivering packages or walking around delivering letters). Both jobs start at $18.92 an hour with health and leave benefits.

From 11 am. To 2 p.m., postal staff will be available to provide support.

Milton Ave., Rahway

Candidates can apply in person or by visiting www.usps.com/careers.

As the Postal Service prepares for the holiday peak season, service performance across all mail categories is strong and steady, Hernandez said. On average, it takes 2.4 days for letters or packages to be delivered across the postal network.

“A lot of times if we can’t deliver a package to you, you can reschedule a delivery on our website. You can also schedule delivery of stamps or packaging directly to your house. So, if you have plans to ship out a few things and you need boxes, let those letter carriers come drop off those supplies you need,” Hernandez said.

Customers can also schedule a pickup location so they don’t even have to go to the post office. As long as they can print up the right labels, the letter carrier will pick up the package for them.

Hernandez said these are just some of the many ways the USPS is prepared and ready for the upcoming 2022 holiday season rush.

What would happen to NJ if we were attacked by nuclear weapons?

We used NUKEMAP by Alex Wellerstein to see what would happen if a nuclear warhead hit New York, Philadelphia, Washington or New Jersey.

The models show what would happen in aerial detonation, meaning the bomb would be set off in the sky, causing considerable damage to structures and people below; or what would happen in a ground detonation, which would have the alarming result of nuclear fallout. The models do not take into account the number of casualties that would result from fallout.

PROPERTY TAX INCREASE COMING TO BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL DISTRICTS

Fuel Merchants Association of NJ: 6 of 9 of New Jersey’s National Blue Ribbon Schools will be hit with $2 Million Bill for Boiler Upgrade under New Murphy Administration DEP Regulations

TRENTON—Eric DeGesero, Executive Vice President of the Fuel Merchants Association of New Jersey, released the following statement today:

“Residents of Cliffside Park, Marlboro, Metuchen, Randolph, Scotch Plains-Fanwood, and West Orange can be extremely proud their schools were designated National Blue Ribbon schools last week. However, what they probably don’t know is that these same schools are about to be hit with a huge bill to convert their boilers to electric heat under Governor Murphy’s Energy Master Plan NJDEP regulations which take effect on December 6.

“In fact, under these new regulations, approximately 1500 New Jersey schools will be forced to convert their boiler systems to electric at a price tag of approximately $2 million for each boiler retrofit and 4 to 5 times the heating costs. If you think your property tax and energy bills are high now, just wait until Governor Murphy’s electrification plan takes effect.

“It’s also ironic that Governor Murphy last week announced the launch of his ANCHOR property tax rebate plan at Ridge High School, another school that will be forced to convert to electric at an outrageous cost to taxpayers. The Governor stated his plan, ‘…will deliver real, tangible property tax relief to both homeowners and renters…’ Unfortunately, what the Governor did not announce was the real, tangible property tax increases Bernards Township homeowners and renters will have to pay for his Energy Master Plan’s electrification of the boilers at Ridge High School, Liberty Corner Elementary School, Mt. Prospect School, and Cedar Hill School.

“The millions of dollars that will be expended for a mandate that the legislature has never authorized will be an anchor around the checkbooks of all New Jerseyans. In order to avoid huge property tax hikes at New Jersey’s Blue Ribbon Schools and throughout the state, the Legislature needs to pass S-2671(Gopal) and A-3935(Moriarty), which would halt the building electrification mandate until a full analysis of costs can be developed and Legislative authorization provided.”

This was unlike any other theater experience I've ever had.

You've been to the movies before, but I bet you've never seen a movie the way I did on Friday night. Lots of theaters have gotten on board with reclining seats and food service during shows, but none have done it quite like how Alamo Drafthouse does.

Alamo Drafthouse is a movie theater that brings a whole new experience to theatergoers. As I mentioned earlier, they have reclining seats and full dinner and drink (yes, alcohol too) service during the movie.

Your seats come with menus and have lights under the armrests to read them. When you know what you want, you just write your menu down on an order card and the server takes your card, and the food is delivered. There's no interruption to the movie at all!

There are also fun preshow screenings that start 30 minutes before your movie, and they're all curated to fit into the movie you're seeing. Alamo Drafhouse also does events where they show old favorites with props.

On Friday, I saw Pearl; a horror story about a young woman living on a farm who dreams of being a movie star. The preshow was tailored to fit the theme of the movie; for example, Pearl lives on a farm with an alligator, and there was a scene with a scarecrow, so the preshow featured clips of a movie from the early 1900s about raising baby alligators, an old Knorr soup advertisement with a scarecrow, and trailers for movies they thought Pearl would star in (like StraitJacket with Joan Crawford.)

The theaters are also smaller and more intimate, and they have strict rules about no texting or talking during the film, which I appreciated. The lobby is decked with cool movie posters and other displays, and there's a bar to hang out in.

As of right now, there aren't any Alamo Drafthouses in New Jersey. The closest one is at 2636 Hylan Boulevard on Staten Island. It's about an hour's drive away. There are other locations in NYC in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

I think an Alamo Drafhouse would be a perfect addition to New Jersey. They could easily fit one in North Jersey in the American Dream Mall, or, how about where the old AMC Seacourt was?

When I took the escalator up to the theaters, I was greeted by cool vintage posters and displays with other odds and ends. It was really cool.

I loved how Alamo Drafthouse had multiple posters of their current features. Here's one of the movie I saw: Pearl. I loved it.

Scarecrow

Over in the bar area there was a poster for the iconic scarecrow from the movie Pearl. If you've seen the movie, you can't get that scene out of your head...

Here I am goofing off in one of the comfy recliner seats. Don't worry, this was before the movie started, since there's a strict no texting/phones policy.
