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 Oceanport:
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

With a strong closing kick Caravel dazzles in Goldwood Stakes win at Monmouth

OCEANPORT, N.J. – Owner and trainer Elizabeth Merryman now knows that she has to aim even higher when she decides on the next start for her talented turf sprinting filly Caravel.
The 4-year-old daughter of Mizzen Mast turned in another dazzling – and winning – effort, drawing away with ease to score a 4¼-length victory in Friday night’s $75,000 Goldwood Stakes at Monmouth Park.
How good was Caravel in winning for the sixth time in eight career starts? When she flashed across the finish line in a slightly eased-up :54.97 for the five furlongs on the grass she missed the 10-year-old track record by just four-tenths of a second.
“I thought it was brilliant,” Merryman said of the performance by the filly she also bred. “She pulled away like it was nothing. It would be really nice to try graded stakes company with her next. So maybe the (Grade 3) Caress at Saratoga (on July 24). We’ll see. With these turf races the weather is everything. She is just a dream. She continues to amaze me every time she races.”
Ridden by Pablo Morales, Caravel broke a tad slow but was able to sit comfortably in fourth early on behind dueling leaders Gotta Go Mo and Victory Kingdom, who ripped off the opening quarter in :20.56. Morales moved Caravel off the rail and outside entering the final turn, with the opening half going in :43.44. He then set her down after Miss Auramet, who was poised to take the lead in mid-stretch over the tiring frontrunners.
But Caravel ran right by Miss Auramet, who was coming off a May 30 victory in the Politely Stakes at Monmouth Park.
“She broke well. I just didn’t send her,” said Morales. “I was going to be wherever I was going to be with her because I know she is usually forwardly placed on her own.
“After they sent so hard out of there, showing a ton of speed, I just figured I’d wait a little and get around them and get in the clear because I know how well she finishes. She has a great closing kick.”
Caravel returned $5.80 to win in the field of eight 3-year-old fillies. Miss Auramet held for second, a half-length ahead No Mercy Percy.
Bred in Pennsylvania, Caravel’s only two lifetime defeats were third-place finishes on a good and a yielding turf course. She won the Very One Stakes at Pimlico on May 14 in her last start, overcoming traffic issues to do so.

13 things to know about NJ state budget racing toward approval

TRENTON – Lawmakers meet this afternoon to begin approval of New Jersey’s 2022 state budget, with the intention of getting it to Gov. Phil Murphy’s desk Thursday.
Text of the bill wasn’t available as of Tuesday morning, though on Monday night the Office of Legislative Services did publish a ‘score sheet’ of changes from Murphy’s original budget blueprint and a summary of changes to budget language.
Here is a baker’s dozen things to know about the spending plan cooked up at the Statehouse:
That\'s up from the $44.8 billion planned back in February. Lawmakers are also due to take up a bill adding nearly $115 million in spending to the current budget that is about to expire.
The spending increases include:
These are extra grants and programs added at the behest of lawmakers. They include $300,000 to improve the Franklin Township Little League field; $500,000 for a band shell at Woolsey Park in Hopewell Township; $350,000 to returf Myrtle Charles Park in Metuchen; $10 million for the North Bergen school district to buy property; and $72,000 to Long Branch, Oceanport and Monmouth Beach to help support municipal fish kill cleanup.
Republicans say that structural deficit could lead to tax increases a year from now. It appears that in many cases, when the Treasury forecast and Office of Legislative Services forecast differed, the budget bill adopts the smaller projection.
Although the budget starts with a $10 billion surplus, the state will nevertheless use $883 million from its “rainy day fund” meant to hold unanticipated surplus revenues until a time of fiscal distress. But the fund – which starts the year with $2.2 billion and ends it with a projected $1.3 billion – was going to be entirely drained under Murphy’s original budget, so it is being partially protected.
The overall year-end state surplus for June 30, 2022, is projected at nearly $5.8 billion. The unrestricted surplus is $500 million, down from $4 billion at the start of the budget year. The surplus includes $3.7 billion put into a Debt Defeasance Fund, including $2.5 billion to pay down higher-cost debt and $1.2 billion to avert future debt increases by covering the cost of capital projects on a pay-as-you-go basis.
NJ Transit’s operating budget will still rely on transfers from New Jersey’s clean energy programs and the agency’s capital budget. Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg, D-Bergen, is displeased. But affordable housing programs that were going to be funded by the Affordable Housing Trust Fund will instead come from the general budget, at a cost of $57 million.
The budget maintains the planned school aid cuts to around one-third of districts, continuing the transition back to the long-ignored school funding formula despite the tax windfall. An additional $100 million was added for extraordinary special education expenses aid, which is shared statewide.
The pension payment, already penciled in at a record $6.4 billion to mark the first full contribution in more than two decades, grows another $505 million to around $6.9 billion. The state has been lowering its assumption for how much its investment assets will return each year and will move that from 7.3% to 7% a year earlier than planned.
A tax exclusion on retirement income will be expanded to cover income between $100,000 and $150,000, in two additional brackets. That will cover around 69,000 retirees.
New tax savings for college expenses will be available for families making up to $200,000. The budget also adds another $37 million in direct aid to students through Tuition Assistance Grants and the Educational Opportunity Fund.
An additional $75 million is included in the budget for local transportation projects.
Charity care funding to hospitals for their care for uninsured patients is increased by $40 million.
The budget now includes $3 million for legal services for unaccompanied minors, an expansion of the legal help the state has been providing to immigrants facing deportation. But it doesn\'t include direct aid for "excluded workers" who weren\'t eligible for stimulus checks or unemployment benefits.

OCEANPORT, N.J. – Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit, Preakness winner Rombauer and the runners-up from all three Triple Crown races top the list of 16 nominations to the $1 million TVG.com Haskell Stakes on July 17 at Monmouth Park, it was announced today by racing secretary John Heims and stakes coordinator Dove Ward.
The Grade 1 Haskell Stakes is a “Win And You’re In” race for the Breeders’ Cup Classic.
Medina Spirit, trained by Bob Baffert, has not raced since winning the Kentucky Derby on May 1. Baffert has won the Haskell a record nine times.
Rombauer finished third in the Belmont Stakes after pulling off a mild surprise in the Preakness by winning at odds of 11-1. Michael McCarthy trains the Kentucky-bred son of Twirling Candy.
The connections of Kentucky Derby runner-up Mandaloun, Preakness runner-up Midnight Bourbon and Belmont Stakes runner-up Hot Rod Charlie have all indicated they are strongly considering the Haskell Stakes, as are the connections of Rombauer, according to Heims.
Mandaloun prepped for Monmouth Park’s showcase event by winning the TVG.com Pegasus Stakes at the track on June 13.
Louisiana Derby winner Hot Rod Charlie, third in the Kentucky Derby, waged an epic stretch battle with Essential Quality in the Belmont Stakes before grudgingly giving way late and finishing second.
The Haskell Stakes, at a mile and an eighth, headlines a card that includes the Grade 1 United Nations at a mile and three-eighths on the grass. The United Nations closed with 22 nominations.
There are three other graded stakes races on the Haskell undercard.

Trainer Jose Delgado was so impressed by what he saw from his speedy grass sprinter The Critical Way on Saturday at Monmouth Park in Oceanport, N.J. that he immediately began plotting out a schedule that would get the 7-year-old gelding to the Breeders\' Cup Turf Sprint on Nov. 6.
It wasn\'t just that The Critical Way won the $75,000 Get Serious Stakes with ease, pulling away for a three-length victory. It was how he won the five-furlong grass feature.
Known for his blazing early speed, The Critical Way sat off the flanks of an even speedier French Reef, doing so through an opening quarter in a dazzling :20.11 and through a half in :43.34. Jockey Paco Lopez eased The Critical Way around French Reef entering the final turn and the son of Tizway took off, showing a finishing kick that can sometimes elude him when he is on the front end.
Final time for the five furlongs on a turf that was listed as “firm” was :55.19.
“We always think of this horse as being in front right out of the gate because he has a lot of speed,” said Delgado, who tops the Monmouth Park trainer standings with 11 wins. “But Paco Lopez told me he was very comfortable coming off the pace. That\'s a new dimension for him. We always think he\'s one way and it\'s go, go, go. Now we\'ve seen he can sit behind the speed and make one move and he can win that way. I like that.
“We saw he can sit comfortably. That gives us a lot of options. He is very consistent. He gives you everything he has. We\'ll look at some serious things for him now. Maybe we\'ll try something in Saratoga, then one or two races at Parx and then if everything goes right we will try to take him to the Breeders\' Cup. That\'s the plan. That\'s the hope.”
Lopez said The Critical Way “didn\'t break like he usually does.”
“Usually he is right out of the gate and on the lead,” said Lopez. “I think he got scared a little bit and jumped behind (French Reef). I know that horse from seeing him in Florida. That\'s a very fast horse. So I was behind that one but he was very comfortable, which surprised me because it is something new for him.
“I came in thinking I would make the lead but I had to go to Plan B. But the horse made it easy for me with how comfortable he was. He was close. It\'s not like he was far back. So when I did ask him he just took off.”
After being caught at the wire in his last start in the Turf Sprint Stakes at Pimlico on the Preakness Stakes card, The Critical Way notched his fourth stakes victory and eighth win overall in 25 career starts for Monster Racing Stables. He paid $3.80 to win.
French Reef held second, 1¼ lengths ahead of Francatelli.
