What Causes Moisture in Your Basement?
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.

The Healthy Way Basement Waterproofing Process
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.

Brookstone at Casola Farm LLC’s application to develop a commercial flex space complex on Squankum Yellowbrook Road was postponed to an as-yet undetermined date.
Testimony began on 366 Ramtown Greenville Road LLC’s proposal to enlarge a warehouse facility in Ramtown but was continued to June 28.
HOWELL — Two developers, one looking to build a commercial plaza outside Farmingdale and another seeking to expand warehouses in Ramtown, will make their pitches to the Zoning Board of Adjustment Monday evening.
Developer Brookstone at Casola Farm LLC and landowners James and Patricia Casey are proposing 30 units of "multitenant flex" space, which typically comprises a mix of office and warehouse space, at 526 Squankum Yellowbrook Road.
The office plaza would sit up Squankum Yellowbrook Road from Howell Middle School North and Howell High School. The parcel sits just to the west of where Farmingdale is carved out of Howell, with a mix of businesses, residential developments and industrial parcels nearby.
Although earlier plans called for more storefronts, the current proposal is for 30 units spread between two buildings, one with 24 tenant spaces and the other with six. All in all the plans call for 49,500 square feet of commercial space, plus a 30-foot-wide driveway and 96 parking spaces.
The neighborhood could accommodate 13,072 square feet of office space and 57,650 square feet of warehouse space at the proposed location "without having an adverse or detrimental impact on traffic conditions in the area," according to an analysis by traffic engineering consultants McDonough & Rea Associates Inc.
The proposal would require a variance sits the proposed development site sits mostly in an agricultural and residential zone, although the northeastern side, near the border with Farmingdale, crosses into a special economic development zone.
The other development up for discussion Monday is a 45,973-square-foot warehouse proposal in the Ramtown neighborhood. The Fishing Line LLC also wants to build out 9,402 square feet of offices. The proposal would triple the warehouse space already on the site. As with the other proposal, the parcel sits in an agricultural and residential zone.
The proposed site, 366 Ramtown Greenville Road, sits among mostly farmland, with residential neighborhoods further to the east and west.
