Healthy Way has been providing the most trusted, effective basement waterproofing in New Jersey since 2007. Waterproofing your basement is crucial to protecting the value of your home and the safety of your family.

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. While some companies only seal the interior walls of your basement, Healthy Way goes the extra mile to fix your water issues inside and out. That way, your basement leaks stop for good.

Once we find the root of the water issues in your basement, we will get to work on a custom-designed solution that will exceed your basement waterproofing needs.

Our basement waterproofing services in New Jersey help prevent the following problems:

  • Decrease in home value

Don't wait to address the moisture developing in your basement - call Healthy Way today for a customized solution to your water seepage problems.

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:

Clay Bowl Effect

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.

Hydrostatic Pressure

Hydrostatic Pressure:

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

Interior Waterproofing

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.

Exterior Waterproofing

Exterior Waterproofing

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.

Exterior Waterproofing

Drainage Systems

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.

Is Biden right about pandemic being over? State of COVID-19 in NJ

President Biden's recent comments about the pandemic being over has sparked some concern that the public wouldn't continue to take proactive measures.“The pandemic is over — We still have a problem with COVID. We’re still doing a lot of work on it. But the pandemic is over,” Biden said in responding to a question during a “60 Minutes” interview that aired Sunday on CBS.New Jersey has confirmed 2.3 million cases of COVID-19 in the roughly two and a half years since the virus was reported in Ne...

President Biden's recent comments about the pandemic being over has sparked some concern that the public wouldn't continue to take proactive measures.

“The pandemic is over — We still have a problem with COVID. We’re still doing a lot of work on it. But the pandemic is over,” Biden said in responding to a question during a “60 Minutes” interview that aired Sunday on CBS.

New Jersey has confirmed 2.3 million cases of COVID-19 in the roughly two and a half years since the virus was reported in New Jersey.

Out of the state’s confirmed cases, 133,682 COVID patients have at some point been hospitalized.

Over the more than two and a half years since the first known COVID cases in New Jersey, roughly 31.3 million total PCR test results have been processed and reported across the state.

Over the same time span from March 2020 through September, there have been 31,577 total confirmed deaths linked to COVID, with another 3,112 total probable deaths.

“We are entering a new phase of the COVID-19 pandemic where most Americans could be protected against serious illness with a single, annual vaccine. It’s nothing new – it’s what we do with the flu,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Friday before Biden's "60 Minutes" interview aired.

Gov. Phil Murphy did not address the president's pandemic comment directly but shared a photo after receiving his latest COVID vaccine booster on Saturday along with first lady Tammy Murphy.

“Just received my COVID booster with @FirstLadyNJ at today’s Nurture NJ Family Festival in Newark! These new boosters offer outstanding protection and are key to our continued fight against COVID,” Murphy said in a tweet.

“While science has helped to advance our management of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19, the disease is still very much evident in our U.S. population,” Perry Halkitis, dean of the Rutgers School of Public Health, said in a written statement on Tuesday.

“This is in great part due to human behaviors and motivations — including subpar vaccination uptake — which continue to place all of us at risk for infection. So, while we are better equipped to control this virus biologically, we are by no means free of it,” he continued.

Following the 60 Minutes interview, U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra was asked about the country’s status with COVID.

“Make no mistake — people are still dying. And, what the president is saying is that we all want to get back to where we were before COVID,” Becerra said in a clip aired by CBS News.

“My concern also is that some will interpret the concept of the pandemic ending to mean there is no more disease,” Halkitis said.

“Indeed, we are moving in the correct direction, but COVID-19 is now endemic to many nations around the world for the foreseeable future, which means people will continue to become infected and some will die — especially those who do not engage in proactive vaccination behaviors.”

Unvaccinated people had three times the risk of infection and three times the risk of hospitalization than those who had been fully vaccinated with at least one additional dose or booster, according to the state Department of Health, as of late August.

“The virus doesn’t outsmart us; we as people allow it to spread and persist," Halkitis added.

State health officials are continuing to push for COVID vaccination and booster shots alongside flu shots, as the fall season ramps up.

Houses of worship in NJ are ramping up security

With the holiday season right around the corner New Jersey churches, synagogues and mosques will soon be holding a variety of religious ceremonies and celebrations.

As part of a proactive effort to keep everybody safe, the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness is starting to hold meetings with religious leaders across the Garden State

On Tuesday, representatives from the NJOHSP, alongside the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and representatives of the Federal Emergency Management Agency will be hosting a Middlesex County Houses of Worship Security Seminar.

Charlie Ambio, the acting director of preparedness and the risk management bureau chief for NJOHSP said the program will feature presentations and discussions on a variety of topics including active shooter response and emergency planning.

“It’s important to note that New Jersey has no known credible threats at this time, but we do continue to see mass shooting incidents occurring in mass gathering locations around the world, including at houses of worship,” he said.

“We have this program that allows attendees to interact with federal state and local security and public safety officials, making these connections on blue sky days are important, but can be especially important during a crisis response," he said

Ambio said there will be discussion about the Interfaith Advisory Council, which was created to facilitate the sharing and dissemination of security information with faith-based organizations.

“We’ll also talk to them about grant opportunities including the New Jersey nonprofit security grant program, which provides funding to eligible nonprofit organizations across New Jersey.”

He said grants can pay for security personnel at houses of worship as well as target hardening equipment.

While there has not been a mass shooting event at a New Jersey house of worship Ambio said preparedness is key.

“We always encourage folks to follow our preparedness cycle, which is planning, organizing, training, equipping, exercising, evaluating and then taking corrective actions on deficiencies that you find,” he said.

“And what we always tell people is if they do see something to report it by calling 1-866-4-SAFE-NJ.”

The grass is greener but the NJ drought watch continues

Thanks to the recent rains we had lawns across New Jersey are turning green again, but if you think this means the Garden State’s drought concerns are over, think again.

According to state climatologist Dave Robinson, the latest drought monitor report indicates most of Jersey is still facing moderate drought or abnormally dry conditions, with an area that includes parts of Middlesex, Monmouth, Somerset and Mercer counties experiencing severe drought conditions.

He said the soaking rain we had at the beginning of last week coupled with the rain that fell over much of the state earlier this week has certainly helped things, but Jersey’s rain deficit won’t just disappear overnight.

"It’s not just the rain that falls and the soils that get moistened up, we also have to look and see how groundwater responds and river flows respond as they perhaps begin to refill some of the reservoirs," he said.

He noted conditions in much of South Jersey and portions of Central and North Jersey have improved a bit thanks to all of the recent precipitation but "just cause the soils have moistened and the grasses have greened doesn’t mean all of the hydrologic indicators have responded as positively as that."

New Jersey 101.5 chief meteorologist Dan Zarrow agreed, pointing out “two healthy soakings in one week certainly helped our drought situation, but we still have a long way to go.”

Robinson stressed what we really like to see is a series of soaking rains.

"Maybe one or two pretty strong storms, and then we’ll start to see the streams start to flow at higher levels, the groundwater levels perk back up."

Robinson said we are still in a concerning watch and wait kind of situation, and all Garden State residents should continue to use water wisely.

"You have to take it just a step at a time, because sometimes these interludes are just that, just brief interludes and then you can go back into a dry pattern," he said.

Zarrow said that may be exactly what we’re facing right now.

“New Jersey's long-range rainfall forecast looks almost completely dry through the second half of September,” he said.

“Barring any big pattern change or tropical developments, drought impacts will continue to spiral downhill as we begin the fall season.”

Robinson noted parts of Burlington and central and northern Ocean counties actually taken a step backwards over the past couple of weeks because they got less rain than other areas in the state.

Where are electric-vehicle charging stations needed in New Jersey?

Later this week, officials in one part of New Jersey will launch a new study that aims to prepare for a significant increase in electric vehicle ownership over the next decade.According to Union County Commissioner Bette Jane Kowalski, while a growing number of people are interested in getting an EV, “one of the concerns for people who want to buy an electric car is range anxiety. They want to know they can get to their destination without worrying about recharging.”While the number of charging stations has been gro...

Later this week, officials in one part of New Jersey will launch a new study that aims to prepare for a significant increase in electric vehicle ownership over the next decade.

According to Union County Commissioner Bette Jane Kowalski, while a growing number of people are interested in getting an EV, “one of the concerns for people who want to buy an electric car is range anxiety. They want to know they can get to their destination without worrying about recharging.”

While the number of charging stations has been growing, they may not be enough.

For that reason she said Union County will conduct an online EV infrastructure study starting this Friday to figure out where it makes the most sense to build new electric vehicle charging stations moving forward.

Union County wants people to take an online survey so they can learn about travel patterns and where stations might be needed.

“We’re going to be looking at where we should be putting EV charging stations by looking at the areas of highest demand," Kowalski said.

This Friday the project page will be launched on the county’s website.

She said the project page will include a survey and mapping tool to gather information from the public on where they believe new charging sites should be located.

The survey will continue online for 30 days.

New Jersey has a goal to have 330,000 registered passenger EVs and at least 400 public fast chargers throughout the state by the end of 2025. The chargers are to be distributed to no fewer than 200 locations statewide.

According to Union County officials, there are three EV charging options now available.

Drivers who charge their EVs at home can use a Level 1 Charger that can take several hours to fully recharge a battery.

The faster Level 2 Chargers are more appropriate for public use but require a heavy-duty outlet, the kind used by refrigerators and other large appliances.

The fastest charger currently available is the Level 3, also called Direct Current Fast Charge, but it cannot be supported by a home electrical system.

The Union County study will focus on Level 2 and Level 3 DCFC chargers, which would be publicly accessible.

The county is receiving assistance on the study with a consultant team headed by French & Parrello Associates with FHI Studio and AECOM.

The survey is being funded by Union County and the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority.

It’s football season and if that means one thing it’s that the Sunday food spreads are coming.

While there is nothing better than a huge board of food to eat while watching football, Sundays are also lazy days and I’m not always in the mood to create a masterpiece.

Luckily there are many New Jerseyans dedicated to their craft, and they have charcuterie boards available for purchase year-round. Here are some of Jersey’s best:

Savory Sweet Box is beyond impressive, with sweet and savory services the options are limitless. They do boxes, and spreads and can even decorate an entire table if you want. The work is super impressive and a little more outside of the box than your typical spread.

This Jersey Shore-based spot supports other small businesses by using locally sourced ingredients for each and every charcuterie board. They specialize in all kinds of boards making it easy to create your dream board.

If you aren’t sure what a grazing table is you need to head over to More Cheese Please immediately check out what they offer. Their charcuterie skills are some of the best I've seen and they even have workshops so that you can learn their craft.

Boarded has some of the most well-decorated boards in NJ as they use flowers and other vibrant ingredients to add a ton of energy to the table. If you’re looking to have an event where the food is so gorgeous you’re afraid to touch it, this should be your next caterer.

Molly Boards have become quite popular among New Jerseyans and for good reason, the boards are gorgeous. They also have great sandwich spreads if you are looking for something beautiful but a little more filling. If you are looking to shop local for gifting they also do mini boxes that are a perfect party favor or gift if you’re going over a friend.
