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 Roosevelt:
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

There are a handful of spiders in New Jersey that could be considered dangerous that might be trying to make their way into warmer climates (like your house!) as the weather turns colder.
I'll caution you now that if you aren't a fan of spiders, this blog might make you a bit uneasy.
I've seen some conflicting information about the exact number of venomous or dangerous spiders that live in the Garden State, so I'll do my best to sort through some of the information that I found (I really wanted to use the phrase "web of lies" here, but I didn't).
So, let's dive in...
Wolf spiders are pretty common. In fact, I've seen them all over my garden and even in my house already this month (there's nothing better than sitting on your couch in the morning drinking coffee and seeing one run across your living room carpet). They don't use a web to capture their prey, they instead hunt it like a wolf.
Wolf spiders are known to enter homes as close as possible to ground level. Because of this, people usually find wolf spiders in crawlspaces, basements, and breezeway.
Or your living room rug.
Wolf spiders can be quite large and in different shades of brown, grey, orange, or black. Female Wolf spiders are very good at taking care of their young.
One pest control company says, "wolf spiders are not aggressive but may bite if provoked."
In other words, if you leave them alone, they'll probably leave you alone.
These spiders aren't too big and they have dark brown or pale-yellow bodies.
The most distinctive characteristic is the violin- or fiddle-shaped mark on the spider's back, extending from the front segment of the spider.
Fun fact: these spiders only have six eyes. Most have eight. Regardless, you probably shouldn't try to count them.
Once inside your home, you'll probably find them hanging out in dark places like basements and hiding under your sofa. And they also hunt for their food.
You do need to watch out for these. One website says,
A bite from a brown recluse spider may go undetected until symptoms start to appear several hours later. In serious cases, tissue damage, cell death -- called necrosis -- and/or open wounds that won’t heal can occur from a brown recluse bite. The bite also poses a fatal risk to children, elderly people and individuals suffering from a weak immune system.
These guys seem to be a little more dangerous.
They're rather small and can be green, tan, or pale yellow with a dark mark down their abdomen.
Sac spiders keep their eggs and rest in tubular silk sacs, which can be found under leaves and shrubs outside, but inside, you may find them in the blinds on your windows, in drapery folds, and behind pictures.
Warning: this might make you uncomfortable...
Yellow sac spiders are active hunters and are known to be very aggressive. They hunt at night and during these nighttime hunting trips, they often encounter humans and bite when they become trapped between a person’s skin and sheets.
Their bite can be something very minor all the way up to more painful than a bee sting or a bite from a Black Widow.
Cramps, nausea, malaise and fever are all common symptoms of a sac spider bite.
Yes, black widow spiders live in New Jersey.
Black widows can be identified by their dark color and hourglass-shaped mark on their abdomens.
Experts say they're not very aggressive but their venom is much stronger. If you are bitten by one, you may experience muscle aches, nausea, and a, "paralysis of the diaphragm that can make breathing difficult." And deadly complications can result to some.
According to the Mayo Clinic, seek immediate medical care if you,
Since you probably won't be sleeping tonight because you'll be thinking about spiders in your bed, keep scrolling to clear your mind...

EDISON – Thomas A. Edison Park, a Middlesex County facility off Mill Road and adjacent to Middlesex College, will close Monday, Dec. 12 indefinitely for pending construction in the area.
All fields, comfort stations, walking paths, parking lots and tennis courts will be inaccessible to the public. The Thomas A. Edison Park Model Airplane Field, however, located in the back of the park, will not be impacted and will remain open to the public.
The park closing will allow work to begin this month on Middlesex County's Community Innovation and Opportunity Strategic Investment Plan, which is designed to transform and bolster the county college and Magnet School System to meet the community's needs and become a destination in the region.
The Strategic Investment Plan includes an open-air multipurpose community venue for concerts, cultural events and multiple sports such as baseball, soccer and lacrosse; a workforce development and conference center; a new community park featuring an educational children’s amenity; a new college student center which will include campus and community amenities; a new Middlesex County Magnet School, the Middlesex County Magnet School of the Future; a destination athletic complex featuring 14 multi-sport synthetic fields; 16 tennis courts and a state-of-the-art recreational cricket field and an expansion of the existing exterior spaces, by adding public art, seating and water features.
The plan is aimed at guiding the growth of Middlesex College over the next decade, while also enhancing life quality and drive economic development for the county.
No cost estimates, funding sources or timetable has been provided for when these projects could come to fruition.
While Thomas A. Edison Park is closed and undergoing the transformation, paved walking pathways are available at nearby Roosevelt Park in Edison, Warren Park in Woodbridge and at the 3.5-mile-long Middlesex Greenway stretching from Metuchen, through Edison, to Woodbridge.
Tennis courts are available for daytime and evening play at Roosevelt Park, Warren Park and Fords Park in Woodbridge. Playgrounds can be found at Roosevelt, Warren and Fords as well.
Unprofessional, ‘boorish behavior’ in workplace not illegal under N.J. laws, town says in court filings

A township in Essex County has fired back at its chief financial officer’s lawsuit, claiming unprofessional, “boorish behavior” in the workplace is not a violation of state whistleblower laws meant to protect employees from retaliatory acts.
Padmaja Rao, chief financial officer for Montclair, alleges in court papers that Township Administrator Timothy Stafford verbally abused her, bullied her, and engaged repeatedly in “demeaning and derogatory behaviors” toward her and other female department heads.
Rao claims after she discovered flaws in how Montclair government operates, Stafford and others in the administration retaliated against her. On Sept. 26, in “an adverse employment action,” Rao was removed from the township’s finance committee, the suit alleges.
In a motion to dismiss the suit filed on Nov. 23, Montclair’s attorneys say the instances of unprofessional behavior cited in Rao’s lawsuit are not protected under New Jersey’s whistleblower laws, known as CEPA.
“While plaintiff makes allegations of workplace disagreements that may even constitute unprofessional conduct or boorish behavior, it simply is not actionable as a matter of law under CEPA or LAD,” the motion states.
“Moreover, any alleged ‘prejudiced and boorish’ language or ‘obnoxious, cruel, and un-American’ behavior is insufficient ‘adverse employment action’ under CEPA,” the suit states.
Rao’s attorney, Roosevelt Nesmith, said Wednesday his client’s removal from Montclair’s finance committee constitutes an adverse employment action, even though his client remains on the job as the township’s chief financial officer.
“We plan to vigorously oppose the motion to dismiss,” Nesmith said. “The removal of Ms. Rao from the finance committee was an adverse employment action that impacted her ability to carry out her job as CFO.”
The motion to dismiss is scheduled to be heard on Jan. 20, 2023, in Superior Court of Essex County.
Less than two weeks after Rao filed suit, the township’s former deputy clerk, Juliet G. Lee, filed a similar lawsuit against Stafford and the township, alleging she was forced to retire due to discrimination and mistreatment.
“Stafford subjected Lee to verbal abuse, humiliation and harassment during her tenure,” states the suit, filed on Oct. 28.
Like the chief financial officer, Lee claims in her lawsuit that some of her “statutory responsibilities” were taken from her and given to another employee.
The lawsuit accuses Stafford of undermining Lee’s work responsibilities, which allegedly had an adverse impact on her physical and emotional well-being.
Stafford did not return calls and an email seeking comment on the lawsuits. Montclair’s attorneys did not return calls seeking comment on the lawsuits.

PennDOT Begins U.S. 13 South Bridge Replacement over Roosevelt Expressway in Philadelphia
PHILADELPHIA, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that preliminary construction activities will get underway next week on a project to replace the bridge carrying the southbound U.S. 13/Hunting Park Avenue ramp over U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Expressway) in the Hunting Park section of Philadelphia.Under this contract, PennDOT stated it will remove the existing single-span, steel plate girder bridge, and replace the structure with a single-span, prestressed concrete bridge that will prov...
PHILADELPHIA, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that preliminary construction activities will get underway next week on a project to replace the bridge carrying the southbound U.S. 13/Hunting Park Avenue ramp over U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Expressway) in the Hunting Park section of Philadelphia.
Under this contract, PennDOT stated it will remove the existing single-span, steel plate girder bridge, and replace the structure with a single-span, prestressed concrete bridge that will provide additional vertical clearance.
The scope of work also includes constructing retaining wall extensions on the approaches of the new bridge; performing full depth paving; and installing and constructing new sidewalk, ADA curb ramps, a new traffic signal, highway lighting, guiderail and pavement markings.
On Monday, December 5, from 6:00 AM to 3:00 PM, sidewalk closures and a lane closure if needed will be in place on Wyoming Avenue between Broad Street (Route 611) and Old York Road for advanced construction operations to improve Wyoming Avenue for future detour use beginning in early 2023.
Due to the nature of the repairs, once bridge work begins, the ramp will be closed during construction and a traffic detour will be utilized using Wyoming Avenue and Broad Street (Route 611). PennDOT’s contractor will also implement nighttime travel restrictions underneath the bridge on U.S. 1 (Roosevelt Expressway) that will reduce the highway to a single lane in each direction.
South State, Inc. of Bridgeton, N.J., is the general contractor on the $7.79 million project, which is financed with 100% federal funds. The entire project is expected to finish in early 2024.

This holiday season New Jerseyans are hopping in the car and heading over the hill to Grandma’s house but they’re not lugging suitcases through the airport, waiting on long TSA lines and crossing their fingers that the airline won’t cancel their flight. These New Jerseyans will be driving and most of them will be using the New Jersey Turnpike at some point of their trip.
The New Jersey Turnpike opened its road on November 5th, 1951, it’s ironic that it was 71 years ago. This November when the New Jersey Turnpike opened making life so much easier for Thanksgiving travelers when cars could hit the highway and head all the way down to Salem County. The road had 148 miles of no stop lights, a toll or two or three but no stop lights. Now this week it was announced that the turnpike will be EZ pass and electronic pay acceptance which will ease up on grid lock at some of the tolls.
I grew up in the Bronx and we used to spend a lot of time at the Jersey Shore. Our relatives lived down there and we spent summers and holidays chugging down the Turnpike and then the Garden State Parkway which opened in October of 1956. I can remember driving in my grandfather’s Oldsmobile down there with him smiling saying “how we’re going to make great time”.
I’ve know nothing but the Turnpike and Garden State Parkway in my lifetime as they were both open before I was born but for my grandfather coming down to the shore on the two lane route 9 was absolutely a brutal trek and it would take 3 or 3 ½ hours and my mom would say that they would have to leave at some god forsaken time to get there at a “decent hour”.
Now when I go to the Bronx from my Jersey Shore home I can get there in an hour and ten minutes door to door, sometimes even quicker.
In 2021, there were over 205 million vehicles that traveled the New Jersey Turnpike. An average of 560,000 vehicles travel the turnpike each day and rest areas pump an amazing 50,000,000 gallons of gas each year. New statistics show that since the Covid-19 pandemic there are 38 million less cars that have used the Turnpike, over 48 million less have used the Garden State Parkway. While both roadways have their issues, I’m still glad that we have them. Makes getting to where I want to go just a little quicker. Stay safe this Christmas.

WHO IS CALVIN COOLIDGE?
After the sudden death of U.S. President Warren G. Harding on August 2, 1923, his VP Calvin Coolidge became the 30th U.S. President. Coolidge actually took the oath of office three times. The first time took place at his family home in Vermont on August 3, 1923 at about 2:30 a.m. The oath was administered by his father, John Calvin Coolidge Sr., a notary public and justice of the peace at the time. On August 21, 1923 at the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C., Justice Adolph August Hoehling of the District of Columbia Supreme Court administered the oath of office to Coolidge for the second time in order to quash any questions regarding Coolidge Sr.’s authority to administer the oath.
Calvin Coolidge won the 1924 Presidential election and took the oath of office for a third time on March 4, 1925. For the first time, the oath was administered by a former president, William Howard Taft in his position as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. It was not the last though: Taft also administered the oath of office to Herbert Hoover, Coolidge’s successor.
What presidents took the oath of office the most number of times? Find out here.

‘It’s about being in a space that will be profitable’: How Primark is plotting its U.S. expansion

As one of the largest fashion retailers in Europe, Primark has lofty plans for its U.S. presence.
The company, founded in Ireland in 1969, currently has over 400 stores across 13 European countries. Primark is known for its fast fashion apparel, footwear and beauty. Its prices starting for as little as $3 for accessories, in the U.S. and many jeans and jackets run for under $50.
Now, Primark is betting on U.S. expansion to drive a lot of revenue growth over the next year. For fiscal year 2021, Primark-owner Associated British Foods reported the retailer brought in a revenue of 5.59 billion pounds, a 5% drop from 2020. This year, Primark’s revenue came in at 7.7 billion pounds, or a 43% increase over last year.
Primark opened its first U.S. store in 2015, in Boston. Throughout, 2020 and 2021, the company opened a few new locations as in New Jersey’s American Dream mall, as well as in Chicago and Philadelphia. But this year, that pace has picked up. In 2022, Primark announced 10 new openings — doubling its U.S. U.S footprint, including one in Brooklyn’s City Point complex opening on Dec. 20. Thus far, Primark’s stores have been largely scattered across the Northeast, but next year will see it hit two new states, Maryland and North Carolina. “There will be even more stores opening the year after next, which we haven’t announced yet,” Kevin Tulip, Primark’s U.S. president, told Modern Retail.
Primark’s biggest proposition is affordability, and Tulip believes the brand can compete with both fast fashion names like H&M and Zara, as well as big-box stores Walmart and Target. He also cited the ongoing inflation as a reason U.S. shoppers who had heard of Primark are excited for its store openings. In an interview with Modern Retail, Tulip discussed Primark’s brick-and-mortar model, its U.S. growth ambitions and how e-commerce can fit into it. The interview has been lightly edited for clarity and length.
What’s Primark’s vision for the U.S., given that you’re already ubiquitous across the U.K. and Europe? We opened our first store in Boston’s Downtown Crossing as part of our U.S. expansion. Even back then, it was all about testing the model and proving it is profitable. From there, we decided to move into a more regional setting by going into the malls, like Connecticut’s Danbury Fair Mall, then Freehold, N.J. That allowed us to play around with the range and space over the next number of years. The biggest lesson was store space. In most of our continental Europe market, we typically open in a space that’s over 50,000 square feet. But here, we’ve downsized our stores to about 35,000 square feet, which has shown to be more profitable.
Many were aware of the European retailers that tried to crack the U.S. market. There was probably some expectation on the brand to just open a large number of stores right away, but this pace has allowed us to continue learning a lot of lessons around locations. And so fast forward to last holiday season, we announced our goal to get to 60 stores by the end of 2026 — that’s part of a global drive to get to 530 stores by 2026.
You currently have a mix of downtown and suburban stores in the U.S. How do you choose your locations? There is a lot of science that goes into it, but a little bit of heart as well. We’re primarily a brick-and-mortar retailer, even in the U.K., where we’re testing click-and-collect. So we have to be in a location where we already have a large footfall, and is around our competitor set. For us, it’s not about just getting into a particular location, come hell or high water. It’s about being in a space that will be profitable.
Two recent examples of this are [New York’s] Roosevelt Field, which opened on Nov. 17, and Jamaica Avenue in Queens that opened just last week. We know that Roosevelt Field is one of the largest in the U.S., and we spent a lot of time there talking to the landlords and watching the footfall. Meanwhile, Jamaica Avenue had been on a list for a while and people were anticipating us to open and it’s a fairly densely populated area in Queens. And while we don’t expect people to travel there from other boroughs, we do think it’s an opportunity to serve a community already shopping on that street. There are a lot of deals to be made financially, but if it’s not a location we see being successful long term then it isn’t somewhere we’re interested in opening.
How does Primark’s merchandising model aid in profitability? We don’t have a complete push model like other big-box stores. So the in-store leadership team pulls 40% of products that they think are going to work for that location. Since the early days, we’ve found that the product mix performs differently in certain parts of the U.S., whether it’s childrenwear or womenswear – and how big is beauty or home. To this day, every store’s leadership is testing these ranges and adapting them to suit their community’s needs. One example of this is in downtown Philadelphia, where we initially expected a smaller need for the children’s range – but it actually ended up being stronger.
Do you foresee e-commerce eventually fitting into your existing model, which you began testing in the U.K.? We’re all monitoring the results closely. But we’re all clear that we’re a brick-and-mortar retailer and are passionate about enhancing the in-store experience. I’ll be looking for those click-and-collect results to be incremental to store sales. I’m very positive it will be a great result at the end of the trial, but I’d only be interested in it [digital collect] if it enhances the store experience. It’s brick and mortar first.
