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 township:
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

Ok, if these things had any weight or significance whatsoever, the hard-working people of New Jersey would have reason to be pissed off.
However, a collection of eggheads (academics with too many degrees and not enough common sense) crunching some numbers and creating a formula to reach an outcome.
According to WalletHub's Hardest-Working States list, New Jersey comes in 43rd place.
There are so many hard-working people in New Jersey who could put the rest of the country to shame. We have to work harder and smarter here due to one main obstacle...the state of New Jersey.
With the government being so gigantic, obstructive, and overwhelming it takes more effort here than anywhere in the country.
Some of the top states absolutely make sense. Alaska, North Dakota have a lot of hard labor jobs, like oil drilling or ranching.
Nebraska, famous for its vast farmland along with South Dakota and Texas are synonymous with outdoor professions the require hard work and long hours.
We have many hard-working people here in New Jersey both indoors and out. But when you put all of the elements of the survey together, you'll see where the Garden State falls behind.
Now, some of the factors involved in the survey were hours per week worked, employment rate, share of workers with multiple jobs and so forth.
Maybe the category that tipped us over the edge was share of households where no adults work. Bingo!
Through the generosity and compassion of "Uncle Phil," his predecessors and the out-of-control Legislature for decades, many people don't have to work.
It can be summed by a famous quote by the legendary late Governor Brendan T. Byrne:
“If you live in New Jersey, and you’re not getting something for nothing, you’re not getting your fair share.”

Hackensack Meridian Health’s Riverview Medical Center and its holdings comprise one of three areas of town that will get special focus in the Master Plan. (Google Map from Monmouth County property records. Click green circles for site details.)
By JOHN T. WARD
Red Bank residents will have two opportunities to weigh in on the borough’s ongoing Master Plan update next month.
Among the topics: the future of three discrete sections of town, including the area around the sprawling Riverview Medical Center.
. (Photo by John T. Ward. Click to enlarge.)
The public input sessions were announced as the planning board heard an update on the document rewrite Monday night from two representatives of New York City-based BFJ Planning.
Since January, the firm has been managing the first full update of the of polestar zoning document in 26 years under a $150,000 contract.
Over the course of an hour, the board heard updates on the work, which is expected to be completed in December or January.
After months of online public input solicitation and discussion with residents, elected officials and students, the project is “now into the strategies and recommendations phase,” said BFJ principal Susan Favate.
The overall plan will touch on dozens of issues, from affordable housing to disruptive train horns, bike paths and waterfront access, she said.
For example, the borough is “starting to see some development pressure, particularly along Monmouth Street,” she said.
“The danger is that the downtown could get bigger and bigger and sort of bleed into the train station area and then bleed into” the Shrewsbury Avenue business district, Favate said. “And something is potentially lost then. Shrewsbury really could lose its unique character. We know it’s an important business district.”
To address that concern, the council might consider shrinking the area in need of rehabilitation it designated in 2017 for much of the area north of Monmouth Street and west of Maple Avenue, she said.
Similarly, she said, Hackensack Meridian Health’s growing portfolio of real estate near Riverview Medical Center also poses the risk of further “bleeding into” a residential area.
Because the hospital is a major employer and economic engine, “we want to support them, but we also want them to recognize that they can’t just do whatever they want to do,” Favate said.
Of particular interest to board members were three “small area plans,” which Favate described as “subsets of the Master Plan” that “need a little bit more attention.”
Those sections of the document, she said, will focus on how the borough should plan for development in the areas of the hospital, on East Front Street; around the northern “gateway” into town at the Route 35 Cooper’s Bridge; and the former landfill and incinerator alongside the Swimming River at the westerly end of Sunset Avenue.
“The ultimate goal will be coming up with concrete recommendations” for the three, Favate said. In addition, the process could yield a “template” for dealing with other areas of town, she said.
Board members Barbara Boas, who pressed for the update last month, and Chairman Dan Mancuso praised the small-area approach.
“Zeroing in on those three areas is wonderful, and you’ve chosen three really good ones,” Boas said. “Those three have been discussed, and disgusting, for years,” she added.
Mancuso noted that the Sunset Avenue dump has long been envisioned as future parkland, and undergone years of environmental remediation, which continues. The plan will enable that effort to “pay off,” he said.
“Ten acres. You don’t think about it being 10 acres when you drop your cardboard off” at the adjoining recycling center,” he said. “It’s a huge piece of property, and a great opportunity to serve the whole town and, even more importantly, to get open space.”
Public presentations of the work-in-progress will be held Thursday, October 13, at the Red Bank Middle School, and Tuesday, October 24, at Pilgrim Baptist Church; both will begin at 6:30 p.m.
Favate said the presentations would not differ, and residents were welcome to attend either or both.
A public hearing would also be held in advance of the board’s vote to adopt or reject the plan, she said.

We have a new business that just opened up at the Jersey Shore and lucky us, it is run by two born-and-raised Jersey boys.
You shoppers are going to want to know about this.
Have you ever heard of Faherty?
According to APP.com, it is a fashion brand that just opened a new location at the Grove in Shrewsbury.
They sell clothing, sunglasses, hats, beach blankets and other beach accessories for men, women and kids.
Here is how Faherty is described on their official website:
"Inspired by the sun, Faherty is a family brand all about great quality, legendary comfort and good vibes. We are fueled by purpose and leaving the world better than we found it."
It is run by two Spring Lake natives, Alex and Mike Faherty, who put Faherty into a very specific fashion niche growing in popularity on the East Coast.
According to APP.com, Faherty, "merges [the] Jersey Shore surfer [style] with the high-quality fashion of New York City."
"It's stuff you want to wear when you're having your best moments, whether you're at the beach or on vacation," said Alex Faherty according to APP.com. "It's all rooted back in really high-quality fabrics, sustainable fabrics, just an embodiment of part of our life growing up on the Jersey Shore mixed with living in New York City."
You may have heard of them prior because they already have 40 other stores across the country. Other New Jersey locations include Spring Lake and Short Hills Mall.
You can also shop online if getting off the couch doesn't sound like your cup of tea right now.
Once you got your new outfit, here is where you should visit:
30 Special and Unique New Jersey Towns You Must Visit
By JackTheVicar at English Wikipedia, CC BY-SA 3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=61658450
Spring Street is the heart of Newton in north Jersey. Walk along this downtown street and find many killer dining and shopping options. The Newton Theater also hosts lots of great entertainment.
Princeton is probably one of the most famous college towns in the world. If you've never been, you have to check out the university. The Princeton Art Museum and the Record Exchange are must-dos. The food options are amazing, too. The Bent Spoon, Blue Point Grill, and Seasons 52 are tops.
Situated on the Delaware River, Milford has lots of history. Hit up Bridge Street, and The Ship Inn, New Jersey’s very first pub.
Right on the Raritan River, Clinton is one of the most beautiful towns in New Jersey. The picture above has been on many a postcard. That red structure is Red Mill Museum. If you're a foodie, head to downtown Chester. You won't me disappointed.
Frenchtown is a great small town for shopping in the many boutiques. The city is always hopping. They have three big annual festivals: Wine and Art in May, RiverFest in September, and Bastille Day in July.
Bay Head is the perfect Ocean County beach town. Bay Head is a dry town meaning there are no bars within the town limits. Grab coffee and crumb cake from Mueller’s Bakery.
Located just outside Philadelphia, Cherry Hill has a lot to offer. For example, Croft Farm, an 80-acre historic center that was once part of the Underground Railroad, but which is now a performing arts center. The kids will love the Garden State Discovery Museum and the dining options are endless.
If you're going to pick a time of year to go to Branchville, go in the fall. The changing of the leaves and vivid color are some of the best in the state. This is truly a town for outdoor lovers.

There it is. The actual Glen Rock. One of the highlights of the town may sound silly, but the Starbucks is unlike anything you've ever seen. It looks more like a castle. Go downtown for everything from a tarot card reading to a bite from popular spots like John’s Boy Pizzeria and Marc’s cheesecake store.
Oldwick was once called New Germantown. It used to be a major farming community. Oldwick Historic District, and the Taylor’s Mill Historic District, both have really cool shops and eateries.

Collingswood has plenty for everyone. Shopping is the main draw to this town, but there are other activities to put on your list. You must have a meal at Kitchen Consigliere, a downtown Italian restaurant. Also, taste test more than 50 types of olive oil at Blue Moon.
One of the nicest beach towns in New Jersey. Whether you’re there to hit the beach, stroll the boardwalk (without retailers) or shop downtown, there's something for everyone. Third Avenue Chocolate Shoppe and the Scone Pony are must-sees.

New Jersey Towns With The Weirdest Names, Part 1
Bargaintown, NJ - Pictured: street sign.
Saving some money? Located in Atlantic County, Bargaintown gets its name from being quite the bargain to buy. According to Wikipedia, "Bargaintown was laid out by a property developer who hoped the value would increase quickly, but when it did not, he sold the lots cheaply."
Buttzville, NJ - Pictured: Map of the area
Cheesequake, NJ - Pictured, Cheesequake School
I love The Cheesecake Factory and, even though it has nothing to do with this town, this name excites me. Located in Middlesex County, the name Cheesequake comes from a Lenni Lenape word meaning "upland."
When I moved to Bayville, I messed this one up a good 3 times. Located in Ocean County, Forked River isn't pronounced how it sounds. It's not like an eating utensil. Forked is pronounced with two syllables, For-kid.
Harvey Cedars, NJ - Pictured, Harvey Cedars Water Tower
Located in Ocean County, Harvy Cedars has a population of only about 350 people. It's hard to say where the name comes from but Wikipedia speculates it, "may be derived from the "harvest" housing used by these farmers and the "cedars" that grew in the area." PS - There's a webcam on the top of the water tower with an incredible view of the beach. Check it out here.
I think we need a Hey-You, sadly we do not. Located in Camden County, the origin of Hi-Nella is unclear. Some speculate it comes from an Indian word meaning "high ground" or perhaps a businessman named it after his wife Nella.
What's with the hyphens? Located in Bergen County, Ho-Ho-Kus and the origin of its name is disputed with several theories from multiple Native American meanings.
