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.

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.

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

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.

Some call for N.J. town manager to step down after employee files harassment lawsuit

Montclair township administrator Timothy Stafford is under pressure to resign amid allegations that he was verbally abusive toward the chief financial officer, Padmaja Rao, and engaged in “demeaning and derogatory behaviors” toward other female department heads.Rao, the Montclair CFO since 2015, this week filed a whistleblower lawsuit in which she claimed to have uncovered serious flaws in the way municipal government operated.

Montclair township administrator Timothy Stafford is under pressure to resign amid allegations that he was verbally abusive toward the chief financial officer, Padmaja Rao, and engaged in “demeaning and derogatory behaviors” toward other female department heads.

Rao, the Montclair CFO since 2015, this week filed a whistleblower lawsuit in which she claimed to have uncovered serious flaws in the way municipal government operated. She brought those matters to Stafford seeking answers, but his alleged angry outbursts were part of “a pattern of increasingly threatening behavior he directed at her for years,” the lawsuit states.

Rao said other women working at Town Hall got the same treatment.

“Stafford has demonstrated the same demeaning and derogatory behaviors toward current female Department Heads. Rao has not observed Stafford act with the same behavior toward the male Department Heads in Township administration,” the lawsuit says.

Rao did not respond to a request for comment on Thursday. But in her lawsuit, Rao claims she went to Stafford seeking answers for a number of irregularities in municipal government.

She wanted to know why some council members were being covered, at taxpayer expense, under the state health plan when they were ineligible for the benefit, while other council members had accepted a $5,000 payment to opt-out of the plan. She also questioned the legality of a no-bid contract that the administration awarded to O’Toole Scrivo, the high-powered law firm run by former state senator and current Port Authority chairman Kevin O’Toole.

Rao claims that because the contract was worth over $17,500, it should have been subjected to competitive bidding. The attorney representing O’Toole Scrivo did not respond to an email seeking comment. In an email, Montclair Mayor Sean Spiller said the contract “was done in compliance with the relevant laws.”

Rao also detailed an alleged incident in which she questioned Stafford’s handling of an issue with the township’s fire department, and claimed he “began screaming” at her.

Stafford, who has been township manager since 2017, did not respond to a request for comment on Thursday. But pressure is mounting for him to step down.

Spiller posted on Facebook that he’ll ask Stafford to take a leave of absence when the council meets on Oct. 25. The mayor also wants to hire a human resources consultant, Culturupt, to examine the culture of sexism that the Rao lawsuit suggests is pervasive within municipal government.

“As mayor, I take very seriously any allegation of harassment in our township administration and I know my fellow council members share the same concern,” he said. “In light of allegations shared in the press yesterday that had not been previously brought to the attention of the council, it is necessary to take further action to ensure that our employees are provided a safe and professional work environment.”

Councilman Peter Yacobellis wants to go one step further. Yacobellis plans to introduce a resolution at the next council meeting that removes Stafford from office.

“I don’t think we have any choice,” Yacobellis said. “There is a major issue in terms of culture for women who work in township government. We have to have their backs. The community needs to know that we take these issues seriously. And his performance has not been good.”

Rao’s attorney, Roosevelt Nesmith, says she plans to remain on the job now that the lawsuit is filed. “She tried every internal means to resolve these issues,” he said.

We have an obsession with Frank Sinatra in this state. He is our hero. Our hometown boy.

Old Italian families keep a picture of him alongside a picture of Jesus Christ.

The guy means a lot to us, let’s face it. So it stands to reason that Frank Sinatra memorabilia means more to us than it does to people in other states. But, there’s a limit.

There also apparently seems to be an obsession here with subs or hoagies, depending on how you like to refer to them.

And to get the best, wisdom is that in New Jersey you’ve got to visit White House Subs in Atlantic City.

Everyone from The Beatles, all of the Miss America winners, and Frank Sinatra have all been spotted enjoying the sandwiches at White House.

They also have a huge “wall of fame” showcasing photos of all the stars and presidents who have visited.

So here’s how Frank Sinatra is honored at White House Subs and you tell me if this is not the most disgusting thing you’ve ever heard of.

And if you’ve been to White House Subs in Atlantic City, you know exactly what I’m talking about. The towel. Yes, the Sinatra towel.

For the uninitiated, the restaurant has encased in a shadowbox and enshrined on one of its walls, the towel that Sinatra used for his last Atlantic City performance ever.

And, You guessed it. The towel comes complete with all the markings of age.

It’s fading, it’s wrinkled, and it has sweat stains on it.

It’s something that people from all over the state, and even from all over the country come to take a look at.

But luckily it’s up on the wall where no one can touch it.

Because can you imagine what that thing smells like?

I believe that it is, in fact, authentic.

But has anyone ever challenged the owners to examine the thing?

Would you?

Despite complaining, most in NJ want standard time to return during colder months

It's that time of year again in New Jersey. That time when our clocks are no longer pushed forward and fall an hour back. Once again, it'll get dark at the end of our workdays and will remain that way until we get closer to spring.Not only does it get dark early, but it also continues to get colder.

It's that time of year again in New Jersey. That time when our clocks are no longer pushed forward and fall an hour back. Once again, it'll get dark at the end of our workdays and will remain that way until we get closer to spring.

Not only does it get dark early, but it also continues to get colder. A combination most of us in the state never look forward to. Cold plus dark typically equals unhappy New Jerseyans.

At least when it comes to November and December we have the holiday season to look forward to. And along with the holidays themselves, we also get to enjoy the decorations that help light up those otherwise dark and cold nights.

But aside from that, there doesn't seem to be much of an upside to standard time. Believe it or not, however, there is a bright spot to the chaos of springing forward and falling back every year.

We may not realize it, but we need standard time to remain in New Jersey for when the days become short and cold. For as much of a drag as it is during the evenings, we should be thankful for the benefit it provides in the morning.

This is very evident at the end of October and beginning of November, just before the clocks fall back that first Sunday in November. Are you finding it harder than usual to get out of bed? Thank those dark New Jersey mornings in part for that.

We might not realize it, but New Jersey mornings would be extremely dark if we remained in Daylight Saving Time. Think about it. At its peak, the sun wouldn't rise until after 8 a.m. across the state.

The weeks leading up to our clocks falling back gives us a glimpse of what that would be like. For as dark as mornings are during that time, it would be a lot worse if we remained in Daylight Saving Time.

Sure, many would complain and moan now about the dark evenings. But that complaining would be far worse if we started our days in the dark. It would also be more dangerous with kids waiting in the pitch dark for their buses in the morning.

Accidents would also increase as a result. Since daylight helps us focus more on the roads, heading to work in the dark while we're still trying to wake up would increase the chances of getting into an accident.

We don't ever think of that because we've always pushed the clocks back in New Jersey. If anything, it would be better to fall back and leave it back. It would still stay bright later come summer, and it wouldn't stop us from having a fun night out.

Perhaps the only drawback to that would be a sunrise occurring before 5 a.m. but honestly? That would bother people far less than a sunrise at 8 a.m.

By falling back and springing forward every year, we help create a sense of normalcy in the morning when we're starting our days. Sure, the sunrise still happens later in the winter, but overall the change isn't as extreme as what it could be if we left the clocks in Daylight Standard Time.

Yes, the overall reason for changing the clocks is outdated, but it still does serve a purpose. And if we were to end the practice of falling back and springing forward, then standard time is where we should leave it.

A favorite supermarket to open more NJ locations

If there’s one thing to know about supermarkets in New Jersey it’s that they are not hard to come by.

Some people say that we have a more prolific assortment of real quality supermarkets than any other state in the country.

From large ones to cozy ones to discount stores. And markets that specialize in this or that.

For a small state, we really do have a great selection of ‘em.

This, however, has not stopped supermarkets from spreading their wings even further across the state.

SuperFresh supermarkets, which operates mostly in the Northeast, has decided to open two more 16,000-square-foot locations in Clifton and Passaic, New Jersey.

SuperFresh has been favored by many due to its size and convenience as 50,000-square-foot supermarkets are often annoying and difficult to navigate.

It seems that as the years go on people know exactly what they are heading to the grocery store for and would prefer to walk less than 20 aisles to find what it is that they need.

SuperFresh is known to have a lot more produce than other grocery stores, as they focus on perishable items such as fresh sushi, bakery and deli items.

Many people nowadays like to purchase prepared foods and meals at the grocery store and oftentimes the quality is not up to par.

These new locations are also being targeted closer to food deserts in an effort to decrease food insecurity even more.

I don’t have a SuperFresh near me, but if they’re expanding into these towns, perhaps it won’t be long until I have one near me.

SuperFresh also focuses on affordability, making sure that their products can be purchased by both low and higher-income families.

The purpose of these markets is to make sure a wider variety of people have access to high-quality food, which is truly admirable considering the environment we live in today.

I personally can’t wait to see the impact these markets make when they finally open and look forward to purchasing from them to support their mission.
