Basement Waterproofing in Scobeyville

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:

  • Mold growth, which can cause serious health hazards for your family
  • Basement flooding
  • Loss of valuables
  • Serious water damage to your home's walls and floors
  • 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 Scobeyville:

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.

Where can you find the best whiskey being made in the Garden State? According to the experts, it's Asbury Park.

In a nationwide assessment of the best whiskeys from every state, the folks at Esquire sang the praises of Double Barrel Bourbon from Asbury Park Distilling Company.

Double Barrel Bourbon is available for purchase by the bottle at the distillery's tasting room, 527 Lake Ave., on the southern edge of Asbury Park, and in some area liquor stores.

Tasting room patrons also can experience the whiskey in craft cocktails. (For more on Asbury Park Distilling Co., watch our video tour of the establishment at the top of this story.)

Asbury Park Distilling Co. opened its Lake Avenue doors on Memorial Day 2017. Distilling its own gin and vodka as well as whiskey, it's continuing a centuries-old spirits tradition in the state.

Laird and Company, producers of Applejack brandy and based in the Scobeyville section of Colts Neck, was established in 1780 and is widely considered to be America's first distillery.

New Jersey’s new craft distillery legislation went into effect in December 2013, and the change in the law opened the door to a potential spirits boom similar to the surge in local beer business following the passing of a 2012 law regulating breweries.

Asbury Park Distilling Co. was the 16th distillery to open after the law was passed, but the first in the state located in a commercial downtown area, co-owner Zack Ohebshalom told the Asbury Park Press in 2017.

"We have a ton of foot traffic, people come in to see what we’re all about and learn a little bit about the process,” he said.

Laird & Company Announces Return of Bottled in Bond Straight Apple Brandy

SCOBEYVILLE, N.J. — Laird & Company, America’s oldest family-owned, licensed distillery, today announces the return of Laird’s Bottled in Bond 100 Proof Straight Apple Brandy (Laird’s Bonded) after a four-year hiatus. Long a darling of the craft bartending community and discerning tipplers, Laird’s Bonded will again be available in bars, restaurants and retail stores beginning in Late Summer 2018 (50% ABV/SRP $31.99/750ml).

SCOBEYVILLE, N.J.Laird & Company, America’s oldest family-owned, licensed distillery, today announces the return of Laird’s Bottled in Bond 100 Proof Straight Apple Brandy (Laird’s Bonded) after a four-year hiatus. Long a darling of the craft bartending community and discerning tipplers, Laird’s Bonded will again be available in bars, restaurants and retail stores beginning in Late Summer 2018 (50% ABV/SRP $31.99/750ml). It sets the category’s benchmarks for quality and integrity.

“We are delighted to bring back Laird’s Bonded,” said Lisa Laird Dunn, Executive Vice President and World Ambassador, Laird & Company. “It holds such appeal for cocktail enthusiasts because it harkens back to our historical Applejack recipe that was popular during the first Golden Age of the Cocktail in the late 1800s. We are one of only a handful of producers of a bonded Apple Brandy. Sip-worthy and versatile, it is unsurpassed in flavor, authenticity and quality.”

A Quality Guarantee of a Spirit That Is Aged Undiluted and Unadulterated

Congress passed the Bottled-in-Bond Act in 1897 to combat the increasing amount of fraudulent and sometimes dangerous Whiskey being sold in the late 19th century. Bonded products were a guarantee to the consumer that the spirit would be aged undiluted and unadulterated. Today, the U.S. Department of Treasury/TTB (Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau) oversees the designation.There are four requirements for a spirit to be designated Bottled in Bond:

“Simply put, we could not produce enough Apple Brandy in a single season to fulfill the Federal requirement for the designation,” adds Laird Dunn. “To address this, we ramped up inventory by doubling our production in the Fall and adding a Spring distillation. As a result, there will be plenty of Laird’s Bonded for all 50 states, as well as our export markets.”

About Laird & Company

Headquartered in Scobeyville, N.J., Laird & Company is America’s oldest family-owned, licensed distillery. It holds the first recorded date for a commercial transaction for cider spirits, 1780, and proudly produces Laird’s Blended Applejack, Laird’s Apple Brandies and Laird’s Jersey Lightning. The company is now once again releasing its famed Laird’s Bottled in Bond Straight Apple Brandy, a darling of craft bartenders, as well as Laird’s Straight Applejack 86, which revives the company’s pre-Prohibition Apple Brandy. The company is led by its eighth and ninth generation father/daughter team of Larrie Laird and Lisa Laird Dunn.
