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.

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 Parsippany:
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

PARSIPPANY, NJ - A long time member of the Parsippany community, Lou Contaldi, has cancer and neighbors and friends are rallying around the family.
A GoFundMe site has been set up to help the family with their medical bills. Here is the description of the situation from the site:
If you’ve lived or grown up in Parsippany, there’s a good chance that you’ve met Lou Contaldi somewhere. Lou has always been a beacon of generosity and a fixture of the town, whether he was offering some landscaping advice, coaching a PTE Little League or PAL basketball team, or bringing over a tray of sausage and peppers to a community event. He’s always happy to help with a big smile and an even bigger laugh.
Unfortunately, over the last month the Contaldi’s discovered that Lou has Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer — metastasized and inoperable. Sadly, Pancreatic Cancer is among the hardest cancers to detect and treat, leading most people to find it only after it’s hit a late stage.
While it would be easy to get overwhelmed with such a serious diagnosis, the Contaldi’s — and Lou specifically — has been brought to tears from the overwhelming support the community has offered. Everyone from long-time friends to distant acquaintances have reached out, looking for ways to help. The love and support have been a massive boost to his emotional and physical wellbeing, and a testament to how much he means to those around him. With chemotherapy on the horizon, Lou is fighting hard to overcome the challenges that lie ahead.
With this in mind, Lou has a few hard months ahead of him — the nature of Pancreatic Cancer means his diet will be restricted and treatment will get costly. As the owner and sole employee of Ahead Lawn Service, Lou (at 58 years old) can’t perform the physical tasks needed to run his small family business. As the head of the house, it means the family will be dipping into retirement savings to cover both daily living expenses and medical treatment.
Lou’s always been a helping hand and generous to a fault; let’s rally as a community to support him. Any amount donated will help go towards Lou’s treatment costs and financially supporting his family through these trying times. It would also be a huge help to share this GoFundMe with friends or on social media; we are hoping to reach as many people as possible.
Thank you for any generosity, and keep Lou and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Toys R Us, Macy's set to join forces. Will the partnership happen in CT?

As of mid-August, Macy’s listed just over 500 stores in all.Macy’s has Connecticut department stores at the Connecticut Post, Danbury Fair, Stamford Town Center, Westfield Trumbull, Westfarms, and The Shoppes at Buckland Hills malls.

In the latest ballyhooed comeback for Toys R Us, Macy’s will set aside space for toy stores in more than 400 of its department stores nationally.
A Macy’s spokesperson said the company is not yet sharing a list of planned locations for Toys R Us departments. As of mid-August, Macy’s listed just over 500 stores in all.
Macy’s has Connecticut department stores at the Connecticut Post, Danbury Fair, Stamford Town Center, Westfield Trumbull, Westfarms, and The Shoppes at Buckland Hills malls. Macy’s parent company also operates Bloomingdale’s, which has a department store at The SoNo Collection mall in South Norwalk.
The large majority of new Toys R Us stores will not arrive in time for the 2021 holiday shopping season, but could provide a boost for Macy’s and mall traffic next year and beyond, whether for spur-of-the-moment buys or as part of the holiday shopping rounds.
And for any parents wanting to walk down memory lane with kids in tow who have never experienced a Toys R Us aisle, it will provide an option to approximate the vibe if not duplicating the big-box vistas of Toys R Us in its heyday.
The companies have already launched a Toys R Us link on the Macy’s website, with Toys R Us having its own e-commerce site active at www.toysrus.com.
Macy’s did not state immediately how much floor space it will set aside for Toys R Us, and what departments would see space pared to make room for the new toy departments. Macy’s has recent experience in the “store within a store” concept, having carved out chunks of space in department stores nationally for its Macy’s Backstage brand.
Macy’s Backstage toy sales emboldened Macy’s to go bigger with the Toys R Us partnership, according to Macy’s CEO Jeff Gennette, who spoke about the joint venture Thursday on a conference call.
“It was an opportunity for us to look at, ‘hey, what’s the entry category for Toys R Us kids that are now millennial parents and an opportunity for us ... to go after this category a lot more,” Gennette said. “Those footsteps or those eyeballs will translate into other purchasing.”
Toys R Us went bankrupt in 2018, closing Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores in Danbury, Milford and Norwalk. The latter location was taken over by Bob’s Discount Furniture, with Ocean State Job Lot opening this spring at a former Toys R Us in Danbury.
The Parsippany, N.J.-based company’s former CEO Richard Barry attempted to revive the brand in advance of the 2019 holidays by opening pop-up stores in Paramus, N.J. and Houston, but did not move forward with a broader roll-out.
This past March, New York City-based WHP Global acquired the Toys R Us and Babies R Us brands. WHP CEO Yehuda Shmidman served on the board of Tru Kids Brands that attempted the prior Toys R Us revival. WHP is backed by Oaktree Capital, a private equity investment firm with offices in New York City and Stamford.
Since the bricks-and-mortar demise of Toys R Us, Walmart and Target have filled the void of local “big box” toy retailer with large departments that nevertheless lack the store selection of Toys R Us in its heyday. Many Connecticut cities and towns have independent toy stores that have absorbed some of the business that might have gone to Toys R Us, though Amazon continues to siphon off many shoppers.
“People have gotten very used to shopping online, ... even more so in the past year,” said Dina Berger, owner of Age of Reason in Westport. “People say, ‘I never could have found this online’ — then take a picture and order it online.”
A few toy chains are bringing forward fresh concepts the past few years in an attempt to create a new dynamic in stores, including at The SoNo Collection where Camp opened in 2019 with a hidden maze of aisles and offering experiential “camps” with varying activities.
And Lego, which has its U.S. headquarters in Enfield and mall stores at Danbury Fair and Westfarms, debuted a larger concept store this year on Fifth Avenue in New York City focused on experiential play, with the intent of opening as many as 100 more.
Another option could be in the offing, after the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that Amazon is weighing larger format department stores to sell a range of goods and handle returns. The company has an Amazon 4-star store at The SoNo Collection that includes a small selection of toys among best-selling items from its website.

MADISON, NJ – The Madison High School football team opens the season Sept. 3 against Immaculata at Torpey Complex in Bridgewater.
Madison will have home games against Morris Catholic, Mountain Lakes, Verona and Hanover Park, and road contests against Caldwell, Hoboken, Parsippany and Lenape Valley.
The Dodgers have achieved four undefeated seasons under 15th-year head coach Chris Kubik and hope to get back to similar success. The Madison coach has been pleased with the work in camp thus far.
“The kids are working hard,” Kubik said. “We’re getting a lot of stuff in. A lot of guys are competing. There is definitely some very good competition for positions, which only makes us better. It has been a real good camp so far.”
The Dodgers will turn to junior Brayton Boyer at quarterback. As for other positions, there is a lot of competition for starting spots at the moment.“Our numbers are up in the program, and we have a lot of guys in the mix,” Kubik said.
“We’re five or six deep at most positions other than maybe the offensive line. I’m expecting a lot out of a lot of guys. This team is gearing up for hopefully a state championship run.”
There are 15 seniors for Madison this season, some with prior experience.
Kubik’s group scrimmaged against Chatham and Bernards this past Tuesday. The Dodgers will also play West Essex, Vernon, Passaic Valley and Governor Livingston in scrimmages prior to the opening showdown against Immaculata.
