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.

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 Spring Lake Heights:
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

- 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

John O'Boyle/The Star-Ledger
FREEHOLD – A lawsuit was settled for $900,000 after the estate of a Spring Lake Heights resident accused both St. Rose High School and a baseball coach of playing a role in the reasons behind the teen's suicide, according to a Wednesday news release.
Spring Lake Heights resident Andrew Clark Jr., 18, jumped in front of a train in Spring Lake because he was suffering from “emotional trauma” that was inflicted on him by his former baseball coach Bartholomew McInerney, according to a news release from the Clark estate’s attorney.
McInerney, 50, of Spring Lake Heights, was accused of sexually and emotionally abusing more than a dozen former St. Rose High School students, including Clark, the release said. The allegations included asking students to masturbate into a condom and telling McInerney about it, asking students to send McInerney a text message when they masturbated and in exchange they would be paid in cash, and asking about the student’s sexual habits, the release said.
The lawsuit was filed against St. Rose High School and the Diocese of Trenton because the estate claimed the school was negligent in hiring, supervision and retention, the release said.
McInerney was also named in the suit, as well as co-defendant Mark D'Onofrio, because Clark allegedly drank alcohol at D'Onofrio's home before his suicide, the release said.
The allegations took place in New Jersey, as well as on baseball-related trips to Alaska and Hawaii, the release said.

The coach will get a new trial after a state appellate court overturned his conviction in 2012.
In the settlement, St. Rose High School and the Diocese of Trenton jointly paid $475,000, McInerney paid $275,000 through his homeowner’s insurance and Mark D’Onofio, a co-defendant, also paid $150,000 through his homeowner’s insurance. Two cases were consolidated and resolved through mediation on March 31, the release said.
A spokesperson for the Diocese of Trenton was not available Wednesday afternoon.
Spring Lake Heights’ Shelley Noble returns with another by-the-numbers beach read

“A Beach Wish”
By Shelley Noble
(William Morrow, 384 pp, $15.99)
The book publicist asked, “How much does the cover art affect your decision?” We were at a gathering of dozens of publicists and three other book critics. Those who work in publishing leaned forward, expecting some insight to guide them.
“Are you asking if I judge a book by its cover?” I queried. “I hope I don’t.”
At least that was what I thought. Much goes into selecting each book. I constantly winnow down choices and often start books then realize no one should be subjected to them.
Beautiful art? Of course, it draws in prospective readers. But am I more prone to cover a book because of that? I used to think no, but this is the second time I loved the art on Shelley Noble’s cover and was lukewarm about the writing.
Partly because I was on a plane and had finished one book, I stuck with this. Once I read 75 pages, I feel committed, so I continued. Yet it took the better part of a week to read what should have been a flip-the-pages diversion in a few hours.
Much as I wanted to get lost in a remote New Hampshire beach town and appreciate its quirky residents, this never fully engaged me. At the heart is Zoe, who wanted to be a musician but allowed herself to be steered to business school. She worked in the music industry, organizing events. When laid off, Zoe isn’t sure what to do.
However, she has a life-changing and onerous task to complete.
Her mom, Jenny, died and entrusted Zoe to scatter her ashes at Wind Chime Beach. Zoe drives from Long Island to New Hampshire where she meets an excessively large cast of characters. And as she says a final goodbye to her mother, Zoe has to find herself.
She does find Wind Chime Beach, part of a commune, home to whimsical aging hippies; the woman a healer, the man a leader, who live there with a goat.
Zoe only knew her mother as the sort of buttoned-up woman, whose outfits and gardens were always perfect. In New Hampshire, Zoe learns Jenny was a teenage mother. Jenny left the baby, Eve, with the father, Lee, a rock-and-roll musician often on tour. Rearing Eve was left to his mother, Hannah, a nasty, avaricious woman. Hannah was so busy making money that Eve spent much of her life at the commune.
A falling out between the hippies and the grandmother led to a decades-long feud. More characters come in; no one seems to leave other than Jenny, who wanted to return even after death.
At least Hannah, the nasty old woman, is vaguely interesting as she runs down people, including her great-granddaughter, with her Cadillac and gets away with all sorts of bitchiness because she’s rich. The hippies bake marijuana into their cookies, and Zoe stumbles about but tells us how competent she is.
As Zoe tries to find her place in the world, she, too, falls under the sway of the enchanting beach where wind chimes tinkle in the breeze.
“Silence descended around them. Only the waves kept their rhythmic caesura, rolling in like the passing of time. One after the other. Like the second hand of the clock. Time was passing for all of them, for Eli and Mel, for David Merrick, for herself. Today the waves were an unrelenting march forward.”
Noble, of Spring Lake Heights, does eventually have Jenny’s remains taken care of.
Zoe may have found a new purpose in life. Two of her three brothers and their wives from Long Island relax their sphincters enough to accept their mother’s choice. Her favorite brother drops in and is at least a likable, fun guy.
Two of Eve’s three daughters also face major decisions, but nothing is terribly dramatic. The aging rock-and-roller finally has an epiphany, and the hippies continue loving each other and anyone lucky enough to wander into their orbit. All ends logically and sweetly enough.
If you are judging books by covers, this will beckon. If you’re planning to slather on sunscreen and settle in with what some consider beach reads – fluffy bits of fiction – this probably fits the bill. It cleverly boasts beach read in its title. There’s nothing heinous about this, but there’s little to recommend either.

Trout season has arrived in New Jersey. A day fishermen and women look forward to at the start of every spring season.
Leading up to opening day, which falls on April 9 this year, New Jersey stocks its waterways with fish of all sizes. Now that trout season has arrived, get ready to see people cast their lines all over the state.
Aside from those eager to catch the big one, many contests will be held throughout the state. Contests for all age groups with numerous prizes to be won.
One such place is Spring Lake, where they host a fishing contest for children beginning at 8 a.m, the very minute trout season kicks off for 2022.
But Spring Lake takes it a step further with its approach to stocking the lake. A week prior to opening day, they host an event for kids to help stock the lake.
This year, the trout were provided by Musky Trout Hatchery from Asbury. They bring the trout on-site in a truck specifically set up for this purpose and include the kids that are interested in assisting.
This trout-stocking event took place on April 2 and had quite a large turnout of children willing to help. It was also a great way for kids to learn a little more about the trout and get them interested in fishing.
Check out the gallery below to see just how the lake was stocked using the assistance of New Jersey's youngest residents.
Ever wonder how lakes are stocked? These NJ kids show you how at Spring Lake
Such a great event for kids to get involved with ahead of New Jersey's trout fishing season.
The kids up front are ready to lend a hand with what'll eventually be in that blue tote on the truck
The amount of trout loaded is highly dependent upon the size of the fish. Some tote loads only had one very large trout, while others had a handful of smaller ones.
As the kids were walking, the fish would often splash around. Sometimes the splashes were so big that everyone around the tote got a little wet. The kids loved it, though.
If the kids had the right gear on, they could participate at this part as well. For the most part, however, the children remained on dry land
But just as that's being done, the next tote is already on it's way with the next group of kids
And you can bet with the fishing contest happening the following week, these kids were even more eager to catch the largest one being stocked.
Just look at the size of this one, who had to be brought in with it's very own tote
The back and forth with the totes and kids helping went on for a good hour. But that didn't matter as everyone was really enjoying themselves.
And seeing how many different types of trout there were was such a great experience for the kids to be a part of
This event certainly sparked the minds of many kids who now want to pick up a rod. And what a great and humane way to stock the lake while letting the kids take part in the action. Well done, Spring Lake.

These are the best hiking spots in New Jersey
A trip to New Jersey doesn't have to be all about the beach. Our state has some incredible trails, waterfalls, and lakes to enjoy.
From the Pine Barrens to the Appalachian Trail to the hidden gems of New Jersey, you have plenty of options for a great hike. Hiking is such a great way to spend time outdoors and enjoy nature, plus it's a great workout.
Before you go out on the trails and explore some of our listeners' suggestions, I have some tips on hiking etiquette from the American Hiking Society.
If you are going downhill and run into an uphill hiker, step to the side and give the uphill hiker space. A hiker going uphill has the right of way unless they stop to catch their breath.
Always stay on the trail, you may see side paths, unless they are marked as an official trail, steer clear of them. By going off-trail you may cause damage to the ecosystems around the trail, the plants, and wildlife that live there.
You also do not want to disturb the wildlife you encounter, just keep your distance from the wildlife and continue hiking.
Bicyclists should yield to hikers and horses. Hikers should also yield to horses, but I’m not sure how many horses you will encounter on the trails in New Jersey.
If you are thinking of bringing your dog on your hike, they should be leashed, and make sure to clean up all pet waste.
Lastly, be mindful of the weather, if the trail is too muddy, it's probably best to save your hike for another day.
I asked our listeners for their suggestions of the best hiking spots in New Jersey, check out their suggestions:
Tillman Ravine near stokes state forest! Following the stream to larger pools in the spring and summer are so nice to walk through! It is beautiful and so lush green!
South Mountain Reservation Fairy Trail. Not really hiking, more of a walk in the woods but so much fun with kids. They get to look for fairy houses while you walk and end at a stream they can go in when it’s warm or throw rocks in.
The backside of Stairway to Heaven from Barry lakes — high breeze wildflowers lead to beautiful wooden bridge over peaceful stream amidst peaceful serenity of the quiet woods.

Tradition will resume Saturday when the kids are invited to help the Shark River Surf Anglers stock Spring Lake with trout ahead of the kids contest April 9.
The cold snap should be gone by then, but as anyone around here knows, the weather this time of year is unpredictable.
The Shark River Surf Anglers haven't been able to hold its annual kid's trout contest the last two years because of COVID-19 social distancing rules. This year's contest will mark the 20th year of one of the most kid-friendly fishing events you'll find anywhere.
The club will stock the lake at 9:30 a.m. this Saturday with 500 trout. The stocking truck will arrive at Mercer Avenue, right on the lake, and kids can help carry the totes full of trout down to the lake where they will be released.
The lake itself is closed to trout fishing until April 9, opening day of trout season as its also part of the spring pre-stocking by the Division of Fish and Wildlife.
The cold snap is probably affecting fishermen's motivation to go outside more than it is the fish, though back in the shallow portions of the rivers and bays, it has caused fluctuations in the water temperature.
Dennis Palmatier at Hook House Bait & Tackle in Toms River, said the early spring striped bass bite is still going strong. The fish have moved away from the Huddy Park area on the Toms and are now more concentrated toward the river's mouth at Island Heights, Ocean Gate and Pine Beach.
He said the fish are also on Barnegat Bay hanging near the Rt. 37 Bridge and are even starting to be picked on the back side of Seaside and Island Beach on the east side of the bay. He said the bait is beginning to appear, both spearing and bunker.
Not too many anglers are hard on the trail of the winter flounder. Palmatier said he hasn't seen one landed on Toms River this season. A few though, are coming in from Good Luck Point.
Fishermen are getting a few back by the Rt. 70 Bridge on the Manasquan River, according to Brielle Bait & Tackle.
The wreck boats were in for the weekend. Sunday was too breezy. It has been slim pickings on the wrecks but that should change Friday when the short spring blackfish season begins. The bag limit for the season, which covers the month of April only, is four fish per day for anglers.
