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 Rumson:

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

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.

The Hawks don't rebuild along the offensive line they reload and this year's version is for real

WEST LONG BRANCH – If you read any of Monmouth University’s preseason previews you would’ve noticed that they were all unanimous in their thinking that the Hawks biggest concern entering the season was the loss of five starters along the offensive line.

It was assumed that Monmouth's lack of experience across the board on the line would put them is a precarious position as they navigated their way through their inaugural season in the rugged Colonial Athletic Association.

On the surface that would realistically be cause for alarm for most teams but the Hawks, who are traditionally ironclad up front, were quietly confident with the personal they had and felt they were ready to step in and prove the naysayers wrong.

“Obviously that was something we had to address,” said longtime offensive line coach/run game coordinator Brian Gabriel. “But the beauty of our program is that we bring in guys and develop them. There are guys in the program that hadn’t really played a ton for us but are guys who have been in our system and have been in the two deep. So, I was much more confident than maybe the outsiders were looking at it because I knew what we had. Quite frankly, in some ways it could’ve been a more talented group, but they just weren’t as game seasoned as the guys we played the last couple of years.”

Senior offensive tackle/guard Oliver Jervis (6-foot-5, 300-pounds) has been around the program since 2018 and played in all 11 games a year ago with 10 starts. He’s part of a three-man rotation on the left side of the line with seniors Will Argo (6-foot-4, 325-pounds) and Jordan Hall (6-fot-4, 310-pounds).

“Oliver is a guy we recruited who was a 240-pound guy with a long body playing defensive end,” said ‘Gabriel. “He’s really developed into a solid player for us and another guy who’s been in the program for a while and has just really developed nicely.

“Same thing with Argos. He’s a fourth-year guy with a ton of experience, not in games per se, but the same thing in the two-deep a couple years now. He’s really picked his game up from last year to this year; huge improvement. And Jordan has really developed in his fourth year. Came in extremely raw and has really developed into a good player.

Jervis admits the negative press surrounding the offensive line prior to the season didn’t sit well with him or his linemates.

“That put a little chip on our shoulders,” admitted Jervis. “I think the one thing is that we have three guys that have had significant playing time over the last couple of years. So, the people looking down on the O-line was definitely some motivation and we’re going to prove that we’re going to be the best position group on the team. So, we definitely took it as motivation, but there’s no hard feelings or anything it was just like okay, let’s go. If that’s how people view us let’s prove them wrong.”

Tyler “Tank” Williams (6-foot-3, 300-pounds) had the difficult task of taking over at center for All-American and two-time Rimington Trophy winner A.J. Farris this season but has acquitted himself quite well.

“Tank is a guy we always said was going to be a really good player,” said Gabriel. “You could tell the minute he got here he was going to be a good player. He just had the misfortune of being behind a two-time Rimington Trophy winner (Farris). Some injuries have held him back but he’s a guy who has really developed and is really solid. You don’t see a noticeable drop off which is amazing.

“Right guard Greg Anderson (6-foot-5,320-pounds) is a guy who had some starts for us last year at right tackle and is a really solid player. Guard is a more natural fit for him, and you could argue that him and the center have been the best players this year and obviously Justin Szuba at right tackle. Justin has an NFL body and is a real student of the game and has really become a good football player.”

Szuba (6-foot-8, 310-pounds) was a first team All-Big South selection in the Spring of 2021 but a lower body injury kept on the sidelines all of last season. He reaggravated the injury in the third game of this season but Gabriel said he’s had a good week of practice and will be a game-time decision on Saturday.

In his place, junior J.T. Cornelius (6-foot-6, 285-pounds) made his first start of his career last week and did a phenomenal job.

“He played great last week and is another system guy,” added Gabriel. “He’s worked day-in-and-day-out to become a really good football player and when he got his opportunity he took it and ran with it. You would never know on the field that last week was his first time playing significant action but he was ready to go.”

The newly formed line had a tough assignment on opening night when the Hawks traveled to perennial CAA power New Hampshire and went through some growing pains allowing two sacks and three quarterback hits.

“I think in the first game of the year the amount of youth we did have on the line in terms of game experience stood out,” said Gabriel. “We made a lot of mistakes that maybe an older team wouldn’t have made. So, I think it was a huge opportunity for growth and use it as an opportunity to get better. And I would argue we made huge strides between the first game and the second game.”

Jervis feels the New Hampshire game was an outlier and the proof has been on the field following the loss to the Wildcats.

“New Hampshire had a really good defensive line for sure but the big thing for us was we just needed to finish,” added Jervis. “We were so close to so many big plays when it was just one guy falling off; but it was on all of us. So, our mentality now is to finish and finish people into the ground. That’s what we’ve done the last three weeks by coming out with an edge to us and not letting up.”

In three games since opening night, the Hawks offensive line has allowed just two sacks and three QB hits but more importantly the offense has been basically unstoppable.

The Hawks lead the CAA in total offensive yardage per game (501.0 yards) and scoring (41.0 points per game) and are third in rushing yardage per game (243.8 yards) and fourth in passing yardage per game (257.3). Sophomore running back Jaden Shriden leads the FCS in rushing yards (453) and rushing yards per carry (12.58) while running back Owen Wright leads the FCS with nine rushing touchdowns.

“It’s always great being an OL coach when you have great running backs,” joked Gabriel. “We have a deep stable of running backs and our star running back right now is leading the country in rushing and one of our other running backs is leading the country in touchdowns. So, it’s obviously a huge factor with the offensive line being good.”

Monmouth football has a long tradition of marching out elite offensive lines year-in-and-year-out and this season’s line appears to be following in the footsteps of so many of the great ones.

“We talk about the standard of what we’ve set here all the time and we’re never going to dip below that standard,” Gabriel said proudly. “We recruit and develop. We don’t bring in transfers or guys for the short term or quick fix. The guys come in our program as freshman and develop, they come in as sophomores and develop so then you just have continuity and you’re never really rebuilding. You always have that group of next guys up and their ready to go.”

“We know the legacy of the O-line,” Jervis added. “But we want to set our own standard and just bring the O-line to the next level this year.”

Gabriel’s method has withstood the test of time for sure and at the same time the continuity promotes long lasting relationships among the players.

“We’ve definitely built a bond the last couple of years that’s unbreakable,” said Jervis. “We’re just really psyched to be able to play together. I would like to say we’re the closest group on the field. We’re all brothers, we live together in the same house, and we just love each other and have each other’s back. If someone makes a mistake we’re there to pick each other up and encourage each other. We like to thing we’re the foundation of the team.”

For the first time this season, the Hawks (2-2, 1-1) received votes in both the STATS Perform FCS Top 25 Poll and the AFCA Coaches FCS Top 25 Poll. The Hawks travel to Bethlehem, Pa. this Saturday to face Patriot League foe Lehigh (1-3).

RUMSON, NJ — Kevin Smith's first annual SModCastle Film Festival is coming later this month to Atlantic Highlands, and a Rumson actor's film is set to be featured on opening night.

Siobhan Fallon Hogan announced her latest film, "Shelter in Solitude," will have its world premiere opening night at Kevin Smith’s inaugural SModCastle Film Festival on Nov. 30.

"Shelter in Solitude" is directed by Vibeke Muasya and stars Robert Patrick ("Terminator 2: Judgement Day," "Yellowstone"); Peter Macon ("Orville"); Dan Castellaneta ("The Simpsons") and Fallon Hogan.

"Shelter in Solitude" is the story of a death-row prisoner with 10 days left to live and his relationship with a wannabe country singer, according to a news release about the event.

Rumson’s Kyle Ward composed the score and two of Fallon Hogan’s children, Peter Hogan, Jr. and Sinead, have supporting roles.

“We are thrilled to showcase Siobhan Fallon Hogan’s world premiere of "Shelter in Solitude" on opening night! Having an 'SNL' vet at the first annual SModCastle Film Festival is huge for this long-time fan,” said Smith.

And Fallon Hogan says she is excited, too.

“I am thrilled and honored to be part of opening night at Kevin Smith’s first film festival as Kevin paved the way for independent filmmakers and is now providing a venue for all filmmakers, which Monmouth County, and all of New Jersey will greatly benefit from,” Fallon Hogan said.

“I am beyond excited for a homegrown audience to experience 'Shelter in Solitude' for the first time, given the involvement of local residents in the production,” she added.

Fallon Hogan has been an actress on stage and screen for more than three decades in productions such as "Forrest Gump," "Men in Black," "SNL," "Seinfeld," "Dancer in the Dark," and New York Shakespeare Festival’s "As You Like It."

She penned her first screenplay "Rushed," released by Vertical Entertainment, last fall. Octane Entertainment sold the film internationally to 13 countries, including the U.K., Australia, France, Spain, the Middle East and more.

Fallon Hogan received a 90 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The Film Threat review site said, “Fallon Hogan is the driving force behind 'Rushed,' both as lead actor and screenwriter.”

The "Shelter in Solitude" world premiere will be at 8:30 p.m. on opening night, Nov. 30, at the SModCastle Film Festival 82 First Ave., Atlantic Highlands. For tickets go to smodcastle.com.

It is Emerald Caz Production’s second film. The indie company’s first film, "Rushed," premiered in theaters in 2021 and is now streaming on Amazon, Apple & On Demand. Emerald Caz Productions was formed by Peter Hogan and Siobhan Fallon Hogan in 2018.
