Waterproofing your basement is crucial to protecting the value of your home and the safety of your family.

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.

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 Middletown:
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.
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 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.
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.
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.Contact Us

Atlantic City casinos win $345M in June, new monthly record
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Atlantic City\'s casinos set a new monthly record for gross gambling revenue in June, winning more than $345 million from gamblers as pandemic fears eased somewhat and gamblers returned with their wallets.That figure was nearly four times as much as the nine casinos won last June, when they were closed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Atlantic City\'s casinos set a new monthly record for gross gambling revenue in June, winning more than $345 million from gamblers as pandemic fears eased somewhat and gamblers returned with their wallets.
That figure was nearly four times as much as the nine casinos won last June, when they were closed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Starting next month, the year-to-year comparisons will become valid again as most casinos reopened on or near July 2, 2020.
When sports betting money won by three racetracks is added to the equation, the June total rises to nearly $393 million.
That easily surpassed the $278 the casinos and tracks won in June 2019, before the pandemic hit.
June is the traditional start of the summer season for the casinos, their busiest and most profitable time of year, and industry observers were eagerly awaiting the June results.
The numbers “did not disappoint, coming off a near record single month high in May of $337.2 million to set a new single month total gross gaming revenue record,” said Jane Bokunewicz, director of the Lloyd Levenson Institute at Stockton University. “Casino patrons don’t have to visit the casino in-person in order to gamble, the fact that they are visiting suggests they are getting more out of the experience than gambling alone.”
James Plousis, chairman of the New Jersey Casino Control Commission, noted that for the last three months, casino revenue growth has exceeded 20% compared to the same period in 2019.
“I’ve seen first-hand that visitation to Atlantic City is on the rise, tourists are happy to be coming back, and the summer season is off to a positive start," he said.
"We are encouraged by this momentum, which speaks to the comfort of visitors returning to the Jersey Shore this summer to enjoy premiere gaming, hospitality and entertainment,” said Joe Lupo, president of Hard Rock Atlantic City.
“The elimination of COVID restrictions and the return to normalcy bode well for us,” added Terry Glebocki, CEO of the Ocean Casino Resort.
Borgata led the pack with $97.7 million in revenue, followed by Hard Rock at $41.6 million; Tropicana at $27.4 million; Ocean at $26.6 million; Harrah\'s at $21.3 million; Caesars at $20.3 million; Resorts at $13.9 million; Golden Nugget at $12.2 million, and Bally\'s at $11.6 million.
Among internet-only entities, Resorts Digital won $35.5 million, Golden Nugget Online won $27.6 million, and Caesars Interactive NJ won $9.3 million.
New Jersey gamblers made $766 million worth of sports bets in June. After paying winning bets and expenses, the casinos and tracks kept $71.2 million of that.
The Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford, just outside New York City, won $44.5 million; Monmouth Park in Oceanport near the Jersey Shore won $2.5 million, and Freehold Raceway, which has yet to ramp up its sports betting operation in any meaningful way, won $132,775.
Internet gambling revenue was up more than 26% in June from a year earlier, rising to $107 million.
So far this year, the casinos and tracks have won more than $2.1 billion, twice the amount they had won over the same period last year, which included the 3 1/2 months that the casinos were shut down.

Lawsuit To Block School Mask Mandates Filed By Princeton Attorney

The lawsuit filed on behalf of a group of parents hopes to block any mask mandates that might be reinstated ahead of the fall.
PRINCETON, NJ — Princeton-based attorney Bruce Afran has filed a lawsuit against Gov. Phil Murphy to block any mask mandates that might be reinstated ahead of the fall school year.
Afran represents parents who are part of the group Free NJ Kids. Apart from Murphy, Commissioner of Health Judith M Persichilli and Commissioner of Education Angelica Allen-McMillan have been named in the lawsuit filed in the U.S. District court.
According to the lawsuit, mandatory "wearing of masks by schoolchildren burdens and impairs protected speech rights," and the mandatory use of plexiglass dividers "confines and imprisons children, separates them from their friends and teachers and introduces an unnatural form of control upon children in the classroom without parental consent."
In the lawsuit, Afran argues that children were singled out and chastised for not wearing their masks correctly.
"Children are regularly chastised by teachers if their masks slip below their nose or if masks are not adjusted properly; children are regularly and routinely threatened with disciplinary write-ups if they do not adjust their masks to a \'correct\' usage," the lawsuit said.
Although New Jersey eliminated mask and social distancing mandates in May, children in New Jersey\'s public schools "have continued to be made subject to mandates that they must wear face masks and engage in social distancing and other isolating measures," the lawsuit said.
Afran also argued that social distancing measures "burden and prevent ordinary communication and association."
Parents and children represented in the lawsuit are from Bordentown, Mahwah, Barnegat, West Orange, Middletown, Sparta among other townships.
Currently, there are no statewide mask mandates for New Jersey schools in the fall. Murphy has left the decision up to individual school districts.

The Twin Lights Museum is now open Wednesdays-Sundays with new exhibits, and both the North and South towers are open for climbing.
HIGHLANDS, NJ — Twin Lights, the famed lighthouse and museum that sits perched on a hill in Highlands, has now officially reopened.
It was closed for more than a year due to the pandemic.
Twin Lights is a state historic site owned and operated by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
The Twin Lights Museum is now open Wednesdays through Sundays with new exhibits, the museum store has new items in stock and both the North and South Towers are open for climbing. The museum/buildings at Twin Lights will be open Wednesday – Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The grounds are open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The museum and grounds are free. Tickets available in the south Tower entrance grant visitors access to climbing both towers as many times as they want that day. Tower admission is $5 per adult and $2 per child twelve years and under. Private tours are also available at $12 per adult and no charge for children under ten years when accompanied by adults. Tours include stories of the events, people and materials that made the Twin Lights famous for almost two centuries, including Marconi\'s wireless telegraph, the connection between the Pledge of Allegiance and the Twin Lights, and the Fresnel lens.
New exhibits at Twin Lights include an interactive Navigation Exhibit in the foyer of the South Tower, featuring some of the tools used by earlier mariners, together with written directions on how they were used. The exhibit includes a sextant, compass and chronometer, and the foyer also features an interactive wall where visitors can highlight the paths of all the waterways of the surrounding Middletown area.
Also new this year are several different exhibits focusing on the former Sandlass Beach Club, one of the most popular amusement areas in the late 19th and early 20th century. The Beach Club was located across the Navesink River from the Twin Lights in Sea Bright, at what is now the entrance to Gateway National Recreation Area.
The Auditorium, which is open for scheduled small scale meetings, parties and private events, features and exhibit on Highlands and its local residents who have made a historic impact on the area in the fields of athletics, hotel management, preservation of Twin Lights history, Prohibition and local Industry. Some of the people featured include Trudy Ederle, Chris Kohlenbush, Blub Parker, Joshua Huddy and more. One of the exhibits features the late Esther Bolster, a Highlands resident who headed the Commission responsible for saving the lighthouse after it was decommissioned.
The new exhibits were researched, designed and created through a close working relationship between historians Nicholas Wood of the New Jersey State Park Service, Jenna Paterno of the Twin Lights Historical Society and Walt Guenther of the Historical Society of Highlands. The exhibit was funded through the generous support of the State Park Service.
