Basement Waterproofing in Rumson
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. That is why we only employ the best, brightest, fully-certified experts, who will treat your home like it was their very own. Taking shortcuts just isn’t in our nature. 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 Rumson:
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

Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School’s boys’ lacrosse team had the kind of season it anticipated last year. With an experienced, senior-laden squad, the Bulldogs expected to be playing for championships. That was before the pandemic hit, and the season and their careers were over.
To the surprise of many, the returning 2021 Bulldogs more than made up for the lost 2020 season. Rumson-Fair Haven breezed through the regular season undefeated and won three championships along the way, including the B Central Division, Shore Conference Tournament and NJSIAA South Jersey Group 2 sectional. The Bulldogs won 20 consecutive games before falling in the State Group 2final to Summit,9-6.
Bulldog Head Coach Marc Moreau, for one, wasn’t surprised by RFH’s success this spring.
“Our seniors played as freshmen and had prominent roles as sophomores,” Moreau pointed out. “It’s not like we hadn’t any experience.”
The experience that Moreau was pointing to wasn’t just lacrosse experience because the team looks for athletes who play more than one sport.
“The majority of our players are multi-sport athletes, and they had their fall and winter seasons and that made a big difference,” he explained. “The kids didn’t miss a beat.”
Because the Bulldogs look for all-around athletes, it’s not a surprise that they play aggressively on the pitch. Moreau used a basketball term, “full-court pressure,” to describe Rumson’s approach. They use their athleticism to attack teams everywhere. The Bulldogs have been played like a well-oiled machine, overwhelming teams with their depth.
“It’s tough to play us,” Moreau explained. “Our offense is really balanced. Teams have to find a way to guard everybody which has made us successful.”
Rumson has had no fewer than 26 players score a goal this year, and as Moreau liked to point out, 70 percent of the team’s goals have been assisted.
“They share the ball,” Moreau remarked.
Senior attacker Luke Devlin, one of those seniors who played prominent roles back in 2019, was the team’s top-goal scorer with 58. He also assisted on 23 tallies. Senior midfielder Patrick Jamin racked up 50 goals and 44 assists for 94 points. Junior attack/midfielder Christian Bockelmann deposited 47 goals with 22 assists while sophomore attack Cole Cashion found the back of net 35 times.
“We have a very nice mix of seniors and underclassmen playing key roles,” noted Moreau.
Ball possession is critical in lacrosse, and that’s where the face-off specialists come in. The Bulldogs have a superb one in senior Tommy Swain who has won more than 72 percent of his face-offs. He won 239 of his 330 FOGOs (face off get offs).
As good as the Bulldogs are on offense, they are equally outstanding on defense led by goalie Ryan Croddick. The senior had 119 saves and was a real security blanket for the team.
“He’s tremendous,” Moreau said of Croddick. “He has great hands and has the best stick work of anybody on the team. He’s very aggressive and starts the transition from defense to offense.”
Junior Jason Halikias, senior Henry Devlin and sophomore Matthew Bockelmann have been pacing RFH’s defense.
Rumson defeated two-time defending champion Manasquan, 11-4, to win the SCT crown for the first time since 2016. Luke Devlin and Cushion each scored three goals in the win.
In the state sectional championship final, the Bulldogs were pushed to the limit before edging Wall, 8-7, behind Luke Devlin’s four goals and Jamin’s five points (two goals, five assists). Rumson had defeated Wall, 10-6, in the SCT semifinals.
The sectional win put the Bulldogs in the Group 2 final where their memorable season was ended by another undefeated team, the state’s No. 2 ranked team, Summit. Luke Devlin (three) and Jamin (two) combined for five goals in the loss.

SECOND TEAM ALL-STATE GIRLS LACROSSE, 2021
A-Carly Bernstein, Millburn, Sr.
Bernstein has scored at least 75 goals in all three of her varsity seasons, and she put together her finest campaign for her senior year. The Millburn star sat near the top of the state with 130 points this season, scoring 88 goals and also securing 79 draw controls for the year. She was an electric offensive force that helped give Millburn one of the most prolific offenses in the state.
A-Lily Spinner, Summit, So.
Summit relied on a whole new cast of characters this season, and still had no trouble dominating the state. Spinner had a lot to do with that, leading Summit in both goals and points as a sophomore, scoring 46 goals for the season for a Summit offense that was among the state’s best. She had some of her best performances in the biggest games of the season, scoring two goals in a 6-5 win over Chatham, and recording five points in each of the final two games of the season.
A-Lily Ramsey, Oak Knoll, Sr.
Ramsey started the year off hot, and just got better as the season went along. She scored at least two goals in each of the final 11 games of the season, and finished the year with 61 goals and 20 assists to distinguish herself as one of Oak Knoll’s most important players. That performance included a three-goal game in the TOC final against Moorestown to tie the game high. Ramsey was impossible to contain, playing a big role in Oak Knoll’s exceptional defensive ride, while also proving to be nearly impossible to contain in one-on-one situations on the offensive end.
A-Alexis Ashton, North Warren, Sr.
Ashton won the state scoring title this season, accumulating 137 goals for North Warren. Defenders in the Skyland Conference had no answer for Ashton as she tallied double-digit goals in six different games, headlined by a 13-goal effort over High Point in the season finale on June 3. Ashton leaves North Warren with 289 career goals after scoring 70 or more in each of her first two seasons.
M-Sophie Straka, Chatham, Sr.
Straka was the heart and soul of a gritty Chatham midfield this season, posting 50 goals, 22 assists and 57 draw controls as the Cougars spent most of the season as a top-five ranked team. Straka did a little bit of everything for Chatham this season, a surgical finisher on the attacking end of the field, yet a ferocious defender defensively and steady in the midfield.
M-Delaney Jackson, Cherokee, So.
Jackson played a leading role in Cherokee’s historic run to a Group 4 title and the Tournament of Champions semifinals, championing the Chiefs’ effort on the draw, where she finished with 118 draw controls. Jackson was also a great finisher for Cherokee, posting 58 goals and 24 assists for one of the state’s best attacking teams in 2021.
M-Haven Dora, Trinity Hall, Jr.
Dora has been a relied-upon player, and leader, at Trinity Hall since her freshman season and this year was no exception. She picked up where she left off two years ago as one of the Shore’s best attacking player, tallying 81 goals, 59 assists and 92 draw controls for a Trinity Hall team that made history, winning the first-ever Non-Public B title and reached the Shore Conference Tournament final for the first time in just its fifth varsity season.
M-Kaitlyn Davies, Wayne Hills, Jr.
Davies was one of the best attacking players in New Jersey this year, picking up where she left off as a freshman two years ago. She was one of just a handful of players to go over 100 goals in 2021, finishing with 104 as Wayne Hills defended its Passaic County Tournament title. She scored in every game for Wayne Hills this year.
D-Ava Drangula, Moorestown, Sr.
Drangula was the fearless leader for Moorestown’s unforgiving defense this spring. A leader by example, Drangula helped stifle some of the state’s best offenses this spring as the Quakers won a third straight Group 3 title and reached the Tournament of Champions final for the third straight season.
D-Maeve Olson, Oak Knoll, Sr.
Olson provided a veteran presence for Oak Knoll’s defensive line this spring and delivered when the Royals needed her most. Oak Knoll won its second straight Tournament of Champions title, thanks in large part to the work of Olson and her teammates that made up the Royals’ impenetrable defense.
D-Jessica Penner, Summit, Jr.
Penner was often called upon to shut down the best attacker on the other team and played a leading role along Summit’s back line this season. She helped a young Summit team to an 18-win season with appearances in the Union County Tournament final and Group 2 title game.
G-Cate Gallagher, Chatham, Sr.
Gallagher was sensational in goal this season, backstopping Chatham to its best season in nearly a decade. She made 87 saves and conceded just 70 goals for the Cougars this year and was at her best when the lights were the brightest, even in losses. She made eight saves in the Group 3 title game against Moorestown and, just days earlier, turned away 10 shots in a 12-11 win over Mendham to win the North Jersey, Group 3 title.
