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.

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 South Belmar:

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.

Seniors Fed Up With Poor Conditions in Their Building

BELMAR, NJ—Serious maintenance issues that have developed over the past four years at the Belmar Housing Authority operated building at 710 8th Avenue came to a head with a power outage this past weekend. A malfunctioning elevator, patched walls, lack of inspections, unreliable back-up generators, and unknown white powder seeping from cracks in the wall and ceilings have pushed some residents to a breaking point.Mary ‘Missy’ Manley, who has lived in the building for 16 years, said, “It pains me that the safety ...

BELMAR, NJ—Serious maintenance issues that have developed over the past four years at the Belmar Housing Authority operated building at 710 8th Avenue came to a head with a power outage this past weekend. A malfunctioning elevator, patched walls, lack of inspections, unreliable back-up generators, and unknown white powder seeping from cracks in the wall and ceilings have pushed some residents to a breaking point.

Mary ‘Missy’ Manley, who has lived in the building for 16 years, said, “It pains me that the safety and well-being of the tenants is being neglected. The tenants are human beings, they may be old and broken, but they deserve to feel safe and secure in the building.”

15-year resident, Ellen Ramey, was more direct stating, “They treat us like s***.” During the most recent power outage, she said, “I stayed with the seniors until 1am in the lobby because they couldn’t get the elevators to work, and the back-up generators didn’t work either. And no one came to help. That is not right.”

Both Manley and Ramey told similar stories about the lack of proper maintenance in the building. Manley pointed out that the condition of the building has deteriorated over the past four years. She said, “The elevator has been malfunctioning over 4 years. The elevator service 'temporarily fixed' it after the power outage. If you are going do a repair, do it so that it operates 100 percent. The patchwork of the operation for the elevator puts all the seniors in harm’s way. Presently, the elevator jolts and jerks when it moves. We were told to use the elevator sporadically.”

Manley also added, “HUD (Housing and Urban Development) inspectors have not been here in four years. For four years our hallways have had bulging bubbles pushing through the walls and ceilings.”

Some bulging bubbles have white powder that falls off to the touch. There is some patchwork on the walls, and patchwork needed by the elevator doors. Overall, a visual inspection verifies Manley’s and Ramey’s assertions that the building is not being property maintained. If it was required to comply with Belmar Municipal Code, it would probably fail inspection, but since it is a federal building, local ordinances do not apply.

One resident, a veteran who didn’t want to have his name mentioned, said, “This building has gone downhill since I moved in four years ago. I get so frustrated living here that I ride my bike and stay out in town as long as I can, because of how bad it is here. It was old, but a decent building when I moved in. Now there are even security issues that no one seems to be addressing.”

A voicemail was left for Belmar Housing Authority Executive Director Paul DeSantis, but he did not respond as of time of publication.

Striped bass 'in every direction' as NJ's fall run may be best in years

The fall bass run just seems to keep surprising fishermen by the sheer amount of fish off the coast and their appetite for anything thrown their way.

At one point on Wednesday, Capt. Jerry Postorino of the Fish Monger II said there was "jumbo-size bass beating water in every direction for a half a mile." They were hand feeding the fish off the stern.

He had gone off in a different direction after fishing the main bunker pods during the morning with most of the boats. Even with the considerable traffic, his party had done well enough in the morning to call it a day, he said. But the run has been exceptional this fall, so rather than sit content, he started the motors and went scouting. He found what he wanted in a spot in about 40 foot of water and 61 degrees.

In about two hours of time he said they probably had more fish over 40 pounds then they've ever see before.

"The boat fishing is the best it's been in years. The big bass are hitting everything you toss at them; flutter spoons, rubber shads, poppers and of course the ultimate bait, live bunker," said Bobby Matthews at Fisherman's Den in Belmar.

As Matthews alluded, the only caveat to the great fishing has been the size. It has been mostly a steady diet of large striped bass out front that have had to be thrown back because they're over the 38-inch size limit. But, it appears more smaller fish have begun to enter the fray.

The big body of fish still remains north of Manasquan Inlet but fish were caught south of that point this week.

On top of that, the Ocean County beaches are finally seeing bass in the surf as the fish appear to have spread out more. Grumpy's Tackle in Seaside Park had its first surf-caught weighed in. The shop also heard from several anglers who were still out on the beach of an influx of fish under 15 pounds. The shop was getting reports of fish at night and day, on fresh bunker, and soft plastics, eels and poppers.

The Long Beach Island Surf Fishing Classic saw a small flurry of bass hit the scales. None were big enough to take over the lead of the contest, which concludes next month. However, since Tuesday eight fish were brought in from Barnegat Light, Harvey Cedars and Surf City, which is the most bass in that short of window since the contest started on Oct. 8.

Sea bass

After a very short closure, sea bass is open again, and will stay so for the rest of the year. The size limit is still 13 inches, but the bag limit increased to 15 fish, the most generous all year.

The Paramount party boat was out a couple of times this week and returned to the dock with coolers filled with sea bass and porgies. Capt. Francis Bogan said many of his fares had limit catches of both fish.

More:What's biting: get the latest fishing reports here

While the day boats are still catching some locally the fish are migrating offshore for the winter. Capt. Howard Bogan Jr. on the Big Jamaica said the boat is sailing offshore to the deep today to head the sea bass off at the pass. Bogan's also going to head out to the canyons for tuna on Sunday. The boat was out Tuesday into Wednesday and he said they had a good day bite on 50 to 80-pound yellowfin and some large longfin tuna.

Another fish that is on the move is winter flounder. The flat fish seem to be settling into the Shark River for the winter. Matthews said fishermen are getting them now on the river flats.

Find Out How You Can “Adopt A Family” In Mays Landing, NJ, This Holiday Season

Things are about to get a lot more jolly over the next few weeks around here. I, for one, am here for it.Do you ever notice that? Do you ever notice how everyone's in a better mood during the holiday season? It's extremely evident to me, but when I think about it, sometimes it doesn't make any sense. Think about it.

Things are about to get a lot more jolly over the next few weeks around here. I, for one, am here for it.

Do you ever notice that? Do you ever notice how everyone's in a better mood during the holiday season? It's extremely evident to me, but when I think about it, sometimes it doesn't make any sense. Think about it. The holiday season is great and all, but what's the one thing that makes that time of year a bit difficult. All the stress! Still, even with the stress element, people are just more pleasant from November through the end of the year.

People are also a lot more charitable. Some people may say that you should be that way all year. While I do believe that's true, I don't think it makes your any better or worse if you do charitable work around the holidays compared to any other time of the year. I believe that as long as you do SOMETHING for your fellow humans during this time of year, it makes the meaning of the season so much more than just about things, you know?

If you're located near the South Jersey area and are looking for something nice to do for the community during the holiday season this year, have you ever thought about "adopting a family?"

Through the Hamilton Township Cares Initiative based in Mays Landing, you can donate food, presents, monetarily, etc. to a family in need within Atlantic County this holiday season. The folks at HTCI sponsor "Adopt A Family" every year and there's never not a need for it the next one. As long as there is a need, they'll be there to help.

If you'd like to get involved or donate, check out their flyer HERE.

Absolutely Gorgeous New Jersey Towns Perfect For A Weekend Getaway

It's time to get away for a few days, and these little towns throughout New Jersey are absolutely perfect to reset and reboot in.

Gallery Credit: Buehler

Allentown

Located right off 195, this small town is sure to make you feel right at home! Spend a weekend walking around, Conines Millpond and trying some of the local coffee shops and eateries.

I love this little town near Belmar. I've only been a handful of times but the sense of community is second to none, the lake is gorgeous, you're right near the beach and there are a ton of little places to rent out.

Clinton

Spend a weekend in Historic Clinton. In the fall you can check out the haunted Red Mill, and you have to explore the historic downtown area filled with great mom-and-pop shops.

I'd also group Atlantic Highlands in with this area, but this small seaside town has a lot to offer. A hop and skip from New York, this town sits right off Sandy Hook Bay. There are a ton of great little restaurants, and shops and you can also climb the Twin Lights Historical Site.

Bridgeton

Generally known as one of the biggest historical towns in New Jersey, you can spend a weekend exploring taverns, homes, and churches that are over 300 years old!

I'll admit, this is a little more on the touristy side, but this is all about being a tourist in your own state right? I love Historic Smithville, they have a ton of great weekend events and great food.

Located directly across the river from New Hope PA, Lambertville is a great weekend getaway. You can stay in the inn at the Lambertville station and spend a few days engrossed in the history of this town. And if you really want, you can cross the bridge and check out Peddlars Village in Lahaska PA

You really can't have a weekend getaway list for New Jersey without mentioning one of our state's famous beach towns! Cape May is consistently ranked as one of the best little weekend getaway places in Jersey. I'm personally a fan of Stone Harbor and Lavallette both of which are also wonderful weekend getaways.
