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 Shrewsbury borough:
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

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

It was easy to tell that many people have spent time in May with gardening on their minds. After months of poring over catalogs, dreaming, and sketching, the public turned up in impressive numbers for the annual Shrewsbury Garden Club’s spring plant sale. Proceeds from this sale are used to maintain the public gardens around the Shrewsbury Borough municipal complex. All orders for geraniums and other annual spring flowers will keep Shrewsbury beautiful!
The club was also still enthusiastic to use the tips that local garden designer Erin Koberle, of Erin Koberle Gardens, shared during her talk and demonstration on container gardening. They were most excited about using perennials in pots which reduces cost and adds interesting foliage in stunning arrays of colors and textures.
The club plants two large rectangular containers flanking the entrance to Borough Hall. Using Koberle’s advice, the planter’s design uses winterberry plants as anchor plantings to provide year-round color. To produce vibrant red berries in winter for a lovely holiday display, they chose male and female plants and these planters also had room for colorful annual plants. They also planted to two containers located in front of the Shrewsbury Historical Society using the same concepts. In early May, club members added Martha Washington geraniums with showy, ruffled pink blooms, heuchera with reddish, lobed leaves, and Creeping Jenny that has zingy lime, trailing foliage. As the temperatures soar, the Martha Washingtons will stop looking fresh, so they will be replaced with new flowers that are more heat-tolerant. That means a new opportunity to shop for replacements.
Two mornings in May were spent in the walled garden. The English ivy that romantically scampers up the brick walls was given a healthy trim. Several established shrub roses also received good pruning as dead or crossing branches were removed and the shrubs were shaped up. This month, they should be covered in rosebuds and ready to put on a show. Several members spent hours on their hands and knees cleaning up the ground covers which had grown enthusiastically. Next, the club used mulch to top off the pathway that meanders through the garden. A new rain barrel was also installed in this space. Set up on bricks, this terracotta-colored vessel will collect rain water, making it easy for hardworking club members to give thirsty plants a drink. A new St. John’s Wort shrub was purchased for the area just outside of the garden. This shrub is native to North America and supports pollinators with its cheery, yellow blooms all summer. Add drought tolerance and deer resistance to its charms, and the club has high hopes for this shrub making a big impression.
Club members also love to discuss new finds for tools and plants. Club Co-President Judy Bonanno, of Shrewsbury, was positively giddy about her new cordless leaf blower, which she is using to clear away loose soil when containers are being replanted. Notable envy was displayed when Lara Garrett, of Red Bank, came to a day of service with her new “baby shovel.” These mini shovels with shorter handles and smaller blades make them ideal for planting in containers or squeezing that one last plant into a tight space.
New members are welcome to join Shrewsbury Garden Club. Members can live in Shrewsbury or the local area. Email [email protected] for membership details or visit ShrewsburyGC.com for more information about the club.
Red Bank Looks To Regulate Use of Unauthorized Fireworks

RED BANK, NJ — The borough council is looking to regulate the use of unauthorized fireworks in town.
At its workshop meeting Wednesday, Mayor Pasquale "Pat" Menna introduced the idea based off of resident complaints and discussion with the mayors of Asbury Park and Long Branch.
"The question is whether we should move forward with regulation of unauthorized fireworks use by private individuals, expect when permitted by the municipality," Menna posed to the borough council.
The proposed measure, which is expected to be officially introduced at the borough council\'s next meeting on July 21, would mirror what is currently outlawed under state law. State law prohibits fireworks that are rocket propelled and can be seen above trees, or any that burst or detonate. It would also give fire code officials the ability to seize unauthorized fireworks at the owner\'s expense.
"Our residents want some form of relief at two o\'clock in the afternoon or four o\'clock in the morning," Menna said. "And more importantly, a lot of these people don\'t clean up after themselves ... they leave the debris on the streets, they leave it on their neighbors lawns and rear yards and its a problem. I think we ought to address it."
The proposed measure would not prohibit the borough from bringing in a professionally-trained organization in doing a fireworks show, Council Michael Ballard noted, only the use of private fireworks that can be hazardous to quality of life for Red Bank residents.
"Fireworks are fantastic, they are a nice sight, but they\'re dangerous," Ballard said. "They harm people, they harm vehicles, they harm property. It\'s nice to view them but with the mess they leave and the potential damage they can do within our borough, I think we need to bring it line."
Violations of the proposed ordinance would only incur civil penalties through a warning then a possible summons or fine, officials said.
"We\'re not trying to make criminals out of dads or uncles who want to put on a fireworks display, but we do want to keep our residents safe and their property safe," Ballard said.
Red Bank Zoning Board Signals Rejection of Mumford’s Shrewsbury Avenue Project

RED BANK, NJ: The Zoning Board held their online meeting last night and after three and a half hours of testimony on the proposed development at 234 & 240 Shrewsbury Ave., a majority of the board was leaning towards rejecting the project.
The applicant, well-known developer Roger Mumford decided to carry the project to the July 15 meeting.
Known as The Parker at Red Bank, it was originally proposed as a 4-story building with 6,300 square feet of retail space on the first floor with 23 apartment units.
Craig Gianetti, attorney and partner with the law firm Day Pitney, provided an overview including a PowerPoint presentation in conjunction with Christine Cofone a licensed planner. “What was originally proposed was 23 units, reduced to 20 units. We reduced the retail area from 4,580 sf to 3,826 sf. We’ve proposed to reduce the size of this building by over 4,000 sf which represents a 13% reduction. We have pulled the building back substantially, almost 20 feet off of River Street. It gives us the ability to create a meaningful pedestrian plaza at the intersection of Shrewsbury and River (Streets)” said Cofone.
Several public comments focused on the two affordable housing units that are required by ordinance. “Even though you’re going from 23 apartments down to 20. There’s no additional benefit to the affordable housing load,” said Board member Bruce Maida.
The proposed building exceeds the borough’s height variance. Red Bank resident Theresa Poku asked if a 3-story building “would work.”
Roger Mumford replied that, “We looked at all sorts of things, but it doesn’t underwrite the land. This is the quandary. You have (in Red Bank), even the most distressed property is worth 100’s of thousands of dollars, so to assimilate (these types of projects), you have to underwrite it. If we do something to make it 3 stories, it can’t possibly have this level of (quality) detail. I would argue that the building as presently devised, is a better quality, better looking facade than a 3-story building with vinyl siding, vinyl windows and be a big L-shaped (building.)

Zoning Board Comments
Lauren Nicosia: “I don’t think you’ve made the case. I know Mr. Mumford does beautiful things on his projects, but I think this project is too dense. If you could drop it down to 3-stories I’d be more inclined to look favorably upon it.”
Bruce Maida: “Height and density are a concern for me.”
Ray Mass: Comparing this project to Station Place, a Mumford project on Monmouth Street,
Mass said, “This building has that same look, and I’ve gotten nothing but negative comments from the day it was built. It’s too stark. I would approve it if the building looked different, but the way it is now, I couldn’t say now if I’d approve the final part of it.”
Agreeing with Mass’s comments, Board member Eileen Horgan said, “The problem with Station Place is that it’s just not back (far) enough. (This project) is dense, and (the public) is coming in saying “No traffic, we live here and know what’s ahead.” I am inclined to not do it right now.””
Sharon Lee: “Red Bank’s best assets have been a family-friendly town. We’ve gotten into the mold of creating (a town) of double income, no kids, and that’s killing our town and it’s chocking us. We are changing the dynamics of Red Bank so rapidly. I would move to postpone this, so we could all think about it.”
Attorney Gianetti agreed to return for an online meeting July 15 and that the September Board meeting is expected to be live and in-person.
The board approved by resolution by Red Bank residents Stephen and Melissa Houck to create a new lot to build a house at 70 Locust Avenue. An existing four-family house sits on the property and the plans calls for creating a new 43-by 100-foot lot and a new house built in front of the multifamily home.
