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 Monmouth Beach:
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

Monmouth Beach kids raise $20,000 for food bank with lemonade stand

It started modestly on Memorial Day weekend of 2017, a lemonade stand manned by a couple of kindergarteners at the Monmouth Beach farmer’s market.
Six summers later, that lemonade stand has collected a grand total of $20,000 for Fulfill, the Neptune-based food bank that serves residents of Monmouth and Ocean counties.
“We’re still going,” said Ellen Marowitz, whose twin daughters Addie and Marnie Marowitz were there at the inception. “We have no plans to end it.”
Dubbed “Kids Quench Hunger,” the lemonade stand just wrapped up its sixth summer as a weekend staple at the farmer’s market. Ellen Marowitz estimates 25 of Addie’s and Marnie’s classmates in Monmouth Beach Elementary School have chipped in over the years, led by a core group of 10 who’ve been involved the entire time. In addition to Addie and Marnie, that group includes Morgan Vecchio, Anna Zimmerman, Chase Smith, Jake Dolan, Spencer Weinstein, Eliana Lehman, Alice Sorochan, and Avery Matranga. They’ve just begun sixth grade.
'Buy food or get gas':Toms River food giveaways still needed, after two years, 1.5M pounds
“This teaches them that it doesn’t matter how wealthy you are,” Ellen Marowitz said. “If you have something to give, you can change a person’s life with the smallest gesture.”
Kids Quench Hunger asks for a $1 donation per cup of lemonade, “but we get a lot of $5, $10, 20 donations,” Marowitz said. “We’ve had people give up to $100.”
The kids behind the stand have toured Fulfill and learned about the food bank’s backpack program, which gives more than 700 chronically hungry kids a backpack of nutritious and easy-to-prepare food on Fridays to sustain them through weekends, when they won’t have access to school meals.
“People are very willing to dig into their pockets and give, especially seeing it’s children feeding children,” Marowitz said.
This year the lemonade stand added Venmo as a way to contribute.
“You get your Gen Zs, who don’t carry money anymore,” Marowitz said. “We’re trying to keep up with them. So we bring up a QR code and it’s amazing to see the younger population respond.”
When the Venmo information was shared on social media, a family from California made a donation.
“We were so excited to get a donation from the West Coast,” Marowitz said.
Fulfill president Triada Stampas called the Kids Quench Hunger “a powerful example for everyone on how to mobilize their communities and play a part in the solution.”
The long-term goal, Marowitz said, is for these kids to “pass down” the lemonade stand to students in Monmouth Beach Elementary’s younger grades when they graduate in a little over two years.
For now, they plan on getting back out there in the summer of 2023.
“We hope they inspire others to help us help our neighbors,” Stampas said.

We say that Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start to summer and now it’s time for Labor Day weekend, the unofficial end of summer.
It’s time for everyone to get their last-minute vacations in and head to the shore one last time before it’s time to get back to school.
If you rent or own a house down the shore then driving down there is your go-to thing for Labor Day Weekend. But if you don’t, you know to avoid the Parkway and any of the boardwalks.
Sitting in traffic heading down the shore is an absolute nightmare and most New Jerseyans know better than that.
Even flying at this point sounds like a headache.
Flights are not only extremely expensive but are being canceled more often than not.
And according to Hopper.com, 12.6 million people are booked to fly this Labor Day Weekend.
You thought Newark Airport was busy on a normal day? Think again.
So what else is there to do throughout the last weekend of summer?
There’s so much to do right here in the Garden State that doesn’t require you to board a flight or sit in hours of traffic.
Leave the shore to the locals and out-of-towners and head to other parts of the state for Labor Day Weekend.
Whether you want to soak up the sun and enjoy the outdoors while you still can or you’d rather stay inside because you’re ready for the cool weather to be here, there’s something to do before the kids head back to school.
There are over 20 amusement parks here in the Garden State and all are family-friendly.
Here are some of the most popular:
Did you know there’s a total of 50 roller coasters in New Jersey? Thanks to our Chief Meteorologist Dan Zarrow, you can see them all HERE.
If you’re done with the outdoors, there are plenty of arcades for both your kids and to bring out the nostalgia in you.
It’s looking like it will be a hot weekend. Take advantage of the water parks while you can.
Food and live music? It’s a great way to end the summer days.
If after all of this you still end up down the shore, here are some places to visit:

N.J. weather: Hurricane Earl could create dangerous rip currents along Jersey Shore

Weather forecasters are warning swimmers to be on high alert for dangerous rip currents along the Jersey Shore on Friday and Saturday because of large ocean swells generated by Hurricane Earl.
Earl strengthened into a Category 2 hurricane on Wednesday and has maintained that strength as of Friday morning, with sustained winds of 100 mph and gusts as strong as 115 mph, as it continues to move north and east of Bermuda — more than 700 miles away from Cape May.
The hurricane is expected to “slow down considerably Saturday night and Sunday,” the National Hurricane Center said in its latest public advisory. “On the forecast track, Earl will continue to move northeastward away from Bermuda today and will move to the southeast of Newfoundland Saturday and Sunday.”
Large ocean swells generated by Hurricane Earl “are affecting Bermuda and portions of the U.S. East Coast and are expected to reach Nova Scotia and Newfoundland tonight and on Saturday,” the agency said. “These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions through the weekend.”
The National Weather Service said the rip current threat will remain high through Saturday not only along the entire Jersey Shore but also beaches in Delaware, New York City and Long Island. And now that Labor Day has passed, most beaches are no longer monitored by lifeguards, making swimming even more risky.
Friday and Saturday are shaping up to be nice beach days at the Jersey Shore, with mostly sunny skies and daytime temperatures rising into the mid-70s at beaches in Monmouth and Ocean counties and into the upper 70s to near 80 degrees in Atlantic City, Wildwood and Cape May.
Inland areas of New Jersey should see highs in the low 80s on Friday and mid-80s on Saturday, with mostly sunny skies, according to the National Weather Service.
The weather service says minor to moderate coastal flooding is expected Friday evening through late Friday in low-lying areas near shorelines and tidal waterways in Atlantic, Cape May, Monmouth and Ocean counties.
In addition to Hurricane Earl, forecasters from the National Hurricane Center are monitoring two tropical disturbances that have some potential to strengthen into a tropical depression or tropical storm in the next three to five days.
One disturbance is in the central tropical Atlantic, and one is farther away, in the eastern tropical Atlantic. As of early Friday, forecasters say the first disturbance has a 30% chance of developing into an organized storm system within three days, and the second one has only a 20% chance of developing within five days.
Historically, the Atlantic becomes most active between the middle of August and late October, with Sept. 10 being the peak time for tropical storms or hurricanes to form.

Somewhere between beer and wine is an alcohol option that seems perfectly suited for fall: hard cider.
New Jersey's alcoholic cider scene started to gain steam during the COVID-19 pandemic, and there are now a handful of brewers up and down the Garden State who collectively market a wide variety of unique, appealing flavors.
Some are on tap in tasting rooms, while others are easily available in bottles or cans at local liquor stores. Here's a look at some burgeoning businesses that are worth a trip.
Founded because of a misdiagnosis of celiac disease, Armageddon offers gluten-free alcoholic beverages including hard cider and mead — which, if you have never tasted the latter, is described on Armageddon's website as "one of the oldest alcoholic beverages in the world ... water with honey in it that is left to ferment." Some of the available ciders are made with raspberries and New Jersey blueberries, in addition to rotating seasonal offerings.
Beach Bee also offers hard cider and (as its name suggests) mead, either available for shipping or at liquor stores and bars in Burlington, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Somerset, and Union counties. The newest cider offering is Apricot Sage, while the Cranberry Cinnamon brew was a Judge's Pick at the 2021 Cidercraft Awards.
A quick look at Burnt Mills' Can Locator finds their product can be purchased widely across the northern half of New Jersey. Currently on tap in their tasting room is their own take on a New Jersey blueberry-infused cider, as well as a bit of a collaboration — the "Jersey Peach" with peaches from Melick's Town Farm, which produces its own line of hard ciders (keep reading).
The story of Ironbound Farm is connected to the history of hard cider in Newark, the famed neighborhood of that city for which the farm and ciderhouse is named. Unique to the other cideries on this list, Ironbound also offers a seasonally-rotating, farm-to-table menu that complements its ciders, which come in both a traditional, beer-like form and a higher-alcohol, fortified variety.
Billing their drink offerings as "fresh from the farm to the bottle," Melick's Hard Cider's Semi-Dry and King Street Hops versions were awarded double gold medals in a 2019 blind taste test by "The Fifty Best," according to Melick's website. Cherry, ginger, and lemon shandy offshoots as well as an apple wine are some of the farm's other apple alcohol products, and bottles can be found for sale widely across North Jersey.
Professor's is a name that has gained a following in the central part of the state, available at Sunrise Farm in Robbinsville. A dedicated website for the cider said tasting had been slated to open in summer 2022. Bottled varieties include "superdry," semi-sweet, farmhouse rosé, and semi-sparkling, to go along with seasonal selections.
In addition to "regular" hard apple cider, Tomasello also cans a blueberry variety (Hammonton is often referred to as "the blueberry capital of the world") and bottles a cranberry one, also canning and filling up growlers of a pineapple version at its Hammonton vineyard. Tomasello tasting rooms, however, can be found throughout New Jersey: Chester, Cranford, Freehold, Jobstown, Lambertville, Mount Holly, Smithville, and Wyckoff.
