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 Ocean:
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

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

The latest forecast for a storm expected to hit New Jersey on Sunday now includes the potential for a wintry mix along the I-78 corridor along with up to 3 inches of snow for parts of northern New Jersey.
“Near the I-78 corridor, temperatures will be marginal with a period of wet snow possible at the onset before a change to rain occurs in the afternoon,” the National Weather Service said the Saturday morning forecast update. “It’s possible there could even be a bit of sleet or freezing rain in the transition but confidence not high on this and any occurrence should be brief.”
The best chance for accumulating snow is for the counties north of I-80, the weather service said.
“Near and especially north of the I-80 corridor, snow will last longer before potentially mixing with and changing to rain in the afternoon and it is this area we are still forecasting a general 1 to 3 inches of snow with this event.”
Snow could linger into Monday morning, making condition slicks for the early commute
The rest of the state will remain warm enough to see rain.
AccuWeather.com’s forecast is also calling for 1 to 3 inches for the northwestern New Jersey.
There is a slight chance for some light rain and snow to start as early as Saturday night in northwestern New Jersey, forecasters say.
But Saturday is expected to remain dry and sunny with increasing clouds throughout the day.
A coastal flood advisory is in effect from 6 a.m to noon Saturday for parts of Cape May, Atlantic, and Ocean counties. Some spotty minor flooding is also forecast in the southern Burlington County, as well as the coastal area of Monmouth and Middlesex County.
The coastal flood risk will decrease heading into next week, according to the National Weather Service.
Highs this weekend will be in the upper 30s to lower 40s, several degrees below normal for this time of year.

Promises, promises: Long-routed Bayonne ferry service pushed back to 2023, at least
If you were hoping to get to Manhattan from Bayonne by water this year, you’re more likely to accomplish that by swimming rather than a ride on the long-promised-but-yet-to-materialize ferry service.When asked why the long-touted ferry — it’s been a part of not one, but two successful mayoral campaigns by Jimmy Davis — is still just a plan, city officials said they remain in negotiations with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

If you were hoping to get to Manhattan from Bayonne by water this year, you’re more likely to accomplish that by swimming rather than a ride on the long-promised-but-yet-to-materialize ferry service.
When asked why the long-touted ferry — it’s been a part of not one, but two successful mayoral campaigns by Jimmy Davis — is still just a plan, city officials said they remain in negotiations with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The Port Authority and city declined to comment on the nature of the negotiations, but Coffey said the city has “expedited” them.
“We are moving as quickly as we can at this juncture, and we hope to have a meeting of the minds in the first quarter of 2023,” said Jay Coffey, the city’s law director, this week.
Currently Bayonne-to-Manhattan commuters can get there by bus or by taking the light rail to the PATH and taking the PATH into the city.
Davis’ message on the 2022 campaign trail came years after planning for the ferry began and SeaStreak was chosen to operate it. But then again, he promised that it would be running by the end of 2018.
And in 2020, just before the COVID-19 pandemic struck, city officials expected a fall 2020 opening date after striking a deal with the Port Authority to lease land at the former Military Ocean Terminal.
But that fall, COVID-19 vaccines were still in development and a myriad of government projects were put on hold.
A year and a half later, in a mayoral run that pitted Davis against then City Council President Sharon Ashe-Nadrowski, the mayor took the opportunity to not only reassure voters that the ferry was still in the works, but also say that it would be operational this year.
“Opening the ferry terminal at the Military Ocean Terminal is a key part of our vision for utilizing that property to its full potential, and this will have a tremendous impact on our community by providing a direct link to Manhattan,” he said in a Jersey Journal interview, when asked what he thought the next expansion in alternative transit should be. “The ferry project has experienced delays due to the pandemic, but we expect construction to begin soon and service to start running this year.”
The 10-year lease with the Port Authority calls for Bayonne to pay the agency roughly $2.6 million, but it appears the city has not yet started paying for it. A public records request in May for payments to the Port Authority related to the lease did not produce responsive records.
SeaStreak was selected to operate the service in the fall of 2018. The city agreed to cover the rent until the service broke even, after which, the city would start splitting the profits evenly with the Port Authority.
SeaStreak did not return a request for comment.
Ground-shaking noise felt in N.J. likely caused by supersonic testing, Navy says
Chris Sheldon | NJ Advance Media for NJ.comhttps://www.nj.com/news/2022/12/ground-shaking-noise-felt-in-nj-likely-caused-by-supersonic-testing-navy-says.html
The series of mysterious rumblings and vibrations felt Monday afternoon throughout the state’s lower region was likely caused by supersonic test flights, a Navy spokesperson told NJ Advance Media.The Navy spokesperson confirmed that Naval Air Station Patuxent River (NAS PAX) had an aircraft “executing supersonic test points as part of an approved test plan ...
The series of mysterious rumblings and vibrations felt Monday afternoon throughout the state’s lower region was likely caused by supersonic test flights, a Navy spokesperson told NJ Advance Media.
The Navy spokesperson confirmed that Naval Air Station Patuxent River (NAS PAX) had an aircraft “executing supersonic test points as part of an approved test plan in a supersonic approved area.”
The Department of Defense manages a strip of airspace known as the “Test Track.” It’s used for military testing, some of which requires supersonic speeds. It begins approximately three miles offshore over the Atlantic Ocean, the Navy said.
Military aircraft from NAX PAX and neighboring military bases visit the offshore Test Track on a routine basis to avoid flying over populated areas, but in spots “close enough for the safety of aircraft and pilots and to conserve on jet fuel to and from the test area,” the spokesperson said.
Sonic booms generated in that area are not usually heard on land but sometimes weather conditions or “the details of the test flight” can cause a sonic boom to be felt or heard on land, officials said.
That was likely the case on Monday for residents of South Jersey, the spokesperson explained.
By Tuesday morning, more than 35 people had reported feeling some sort of shaking in New Jersey and posted their reports on volcanodiscovery.com.
The website described the incident as an “unconfirmed earthquake or seismic-like event,” saying it occurred 25 miles southeast of South Vineland in Cumberland County at 12:46 p.m. However, no signs of an earthquake were detected by the U.S. Geological Survey.
Monday’s events were similar to a February incident where residents said they felt shaking and heard loud booms throughout central and southern New Jersey. The source of the earthquake-like event was investigated, but never confirmed.
