Must-See Sports for Your New Man Cave

In last month’s blog, we talked about stuff every man cave should have in it. Little things like comfortable seats to an awesome entertainment system help turn just an ordinary basement into a top-of-the-line man cave.

If our last blog did not convince you to get a man cave, hopefully, this blog about upcoming sporting events will help you make the decision to turn that unused cellar into a fortitude of testosterone.

NCAA Men’s Lacrosse National Championship – Memorial Day Weekend (Boston, MA)

Lacrosse has seen an explosion in popularity within the past 5-to-10 years, in particular, college lacrosse. College lacrosse is arguably more popular than their professional counterpart. The first round of the tournament kicked off just this past weekend, and a champion will be crowned on Memorial Day. You can watch the semifinal games on Sat. May 27 and the national championship Mon. May 29 at 1 pm.

NBA Finals – June 2017 (TBD)

The 2017 playoffs haven’t given us much to watch up until this point outside of recent matchup between the Washington Wizards and the Boston Celtics. The Celtics surprised many by snagging the coveted No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. Now with a Kawhi Leonard injury damaging the San Antonio Spurs, the clear matchup for the finals will most likely be a ridiculous third rematch of the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Buckle up folks; it’s about to get interesting.

NHL Stanley Cup Finals – June 2017 (TBD)

The Pittsburgh Penguins look to repeat as Stanley Cup Champions. The only team standing in their way within the Eastern Conference is the Ottawa Senators, While the Anaheim Ducks and Nashville Predators battle it out in the Western Conference, a possible rematch of the 2007 Stanley Cup Finals between the Ducks and the Senators would be a compelling matchup. However, if the Predators advance out of the Western Conference, it’ll mark the franchise’s first Stanley Cup Finals appearance.

(Golf) US Open – June 15-18, 2017 (Erin Hills, Wisconsin)

It’s going to be hard to outdo the greatness we were witnesses to for the 2017 Masters in April, but the US Open does not look like it’s going to disappoint. The action for the Masters started before the first tee-off when one of the favorites to win, Dustin Johnson, withdrew just 24 hours before the tournament started after suffering an injured back from falling down the steps. DJ was playing the best golf of his career, winning his last three PGA Tour events prior to the Masters. Johnson is no surprise the favorite to win (+650) this year’s US Open.

Four Things a Man Cave Must Have

Since around the age of 15, every boy dreams of the day he his able to create his own man cave. A place where he can put his feet up to relax and usually a place where the kids are not allowed in. A place where one is safe to watch football in their boxers, eat an unhealthy amount of pizza and buffalo wings. But ultimately, a place to make home feel just a little more special.

Here are four things we feel that every man cave must have to be a proper man cave:

#4 Dart Board
Nothing beats going to the bar with your buddies and playing an excessive amount of darts. Oh wait, not having to leave the house to play an excessive amount of darts with your buddies does. The best part is you don’t have to spend anywhere near the amount of money to do so either. Having a dart board within the comfy confines of your home also gives you the advantage of being a very good dart thrower. Being able to head down to the basement for a quick game of 501 will help make you the best cricket player in your entourage.

#3 Entertainment System
Every man cave needs to be backed up with the power of a baller entertainment system. Don’t even consider yourself a real man unless your flat screen stretches at least 50’’. It doesn’t just stop at the tv either. If you want a tried and true man cave, you need to be rocking surround sound, the newest gaming system, every single sports package and a plethora of classic guy movies. Rocky, The Godfather, Scarface and Beerfest just to name a few.

#2 Seating Arrangements
You and none of your friends are going to want to spend time in your man cave if you don’t have comfortable recliners or a comfortable couch. A recliner is crucial to a man cave, but an extremely cozy couch can easily make up for a lack of one. If your seating arrangements aren’t comfortable enough for us to pass out on when we aren’t even tired, don’t even bother inviting us over. Step your couch game up son!

#1 Coffee Table
Having comfortable seating arrangements is pointless if your friends need to get up to place their beer or bowl of chips down somewhere else every time they’re done drinking or eating. It doesn’t have to be a coffee table that your wife picked out, which is most of the time unnecessarily expensive. You can get a coffee table designed by your favorite sports team or they even know have a coffee table that stores beer and keeps them cold and ready to drink at a moment’s notice.

These are just a small must-need items that you have to have to make your basement a certified man cave because it’s just a basement unless you have these four items.

A man cave is also impossible unless your basement is safe from all types of water damage. The best way to make sure that’s covered is to let Rightway Waterproofing make sure your basement is cleared of water or mold. Rightway Waterproofing is number one in water damage cleanup in New Jersey. Their mold cleaning contractors in New Jersey can make sure your basement is water free today!

4 Things You Should Never Find in Your Basement

Your home is your base. It’s your safe place – your comfort zone. Your home should be somewhere you and your family take pride in. From your rooftop to your basement’s bottom, every inch counts, and you should utilize your entire property.

 

With that being said, is your basement optimized? Whether it’s finished or not, there are some steps you can take to make it a habitable part of your home for visitors of any age. If you are in need of a basement waterproofing contractor in NJ, call Rightway Waterproofing. We take pride in safeguarding your potentially hazardous areas and will handle mold removal in Pennsylvania and Delaware (and of course New Jersey.)

 

After you waterproof your basement, there are many things you can furnish it with. These items include:

  • Couches / Seating
  • Television / Electronics
  • Games
  • Office / Work Space

 

There are also many things you should never find in your basement. Here are five examples:

 

  • Mold – We covered this earlier, but why? Mold doesn’t get talked as much as it should. It’s not just smelly and unsightly; it’s downright hazardous to your health. Best case scenario, over-exposure to mold results in allergic or side effects such as sneezing, rashes, and other cold-like symptoms. Worst case scenario, it can cause asthma attacks (to children, adults, and even pets.)

  • Bugs – Bugs can be an indicator that you have a water problem or a hole in the drywall. From silverfish and centipedes to spiders and roaches, bugs can be a big problem if no action is taken.  First impressions last a lifetime. Imagine having a coworker or romantic partner over for some darts and discovering a creepy crawler along the way. Not good!

  • Animals – Other than the garage, the basement is the most common way that animals infiltrate homes. Some common intruders found in basements include mice, rats, raccoons, and squirrels. If you suspect there is an underground entry point, call 866-741-6190, and our team can see if any basement repairs are needed.

 

  • Water – This goes hand in hand with the others. Once there are leaks, the walls become less stable, and mold is more likely to grow. The more mold or mildew there is, the weaker the walls and the more intruders you’ll see. If you have a filtered spring water distributor, that is fine, but any other water that finds its way in should be addressed immediately.

Basements Becoming Bedrooms: 3 Reasons It Works

Close your eyes. Picture a basement. Any basement. What do you see? When people think of basements, they usually imagine two scenarios…

  • Unfurnished basements used primarily for storage.
  • Furnished basements mainly used for entertaining kids and house guests.

 

Basements don’t have to be binary. We have a third option, and it’s to transform your basement into a guest bedroom. Why do finished basements make great sleeping quarters? Here are three of the many reasons:

  1. If you have a family, every bedroom is already taken.

  2. COMFORT! Guests shouldn’t have to sleep on an air mattress or a couch in the living room. Air mattresses are uncomfortable, and they likely obstruct access for residents. Having house guests crash on the sofa can be inconvenient for all parties involved.

  3. Basements allow for privacy. It’s just as good as a bedroom. Sleeping in the living room is okay, but it’s hard to stay asleep when you can hear the others rustling around upstairs or making breakfast one room over. To make their underground stay even more enjoyable, add a TV and a mini-fridge. This way, guests can wake up comfortably and grab some orange juice while watching their favorite morning show.

Now, you might be thinking, “What if we want to keep the pool table down there and still house guests?” Great question.

 

Depending on your basement’s size, a traditional bed isn’t always practical, but a pull-out sofa bed is. Multifunctional furniture makes basements much more space efficient. No matter how old you are, you can gather your college fraternity brothers downstairs in your new “bro-tel” without interfering with other areas of the home.
If you decide to go with a hybrid basement (activity center/guest bedroom), you’re going to need a basement waterproofing contractor. Rightway Waterproofing services NJ as well as Philadelphia and Delaware. Before remodeling or furnishing, consult a basement waterproofing specialist. This is a project that should be handled before you fully renovate (just in case any construction is required). The last thing you want is mold to creep into your newly upgrade sleeping quarters. Stay ahead of the game and be proactive. If you have any questions, call 866-741-6190 and let us know.

Stacy from Princeton (NJ) said: “Mr. Donny Weiner one of the owners of the company came to my house to assess my problem and give me an estimate. I was so impressed by his professionalism and knowledge of basement issues that I hired him on the spot. His price was very fair. His crew came about a week later to waterproof my basement. His crew was also very professional, polite, and friendly. I would highly recommend this company to anyone having any issues with their basement.”

That was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Rightway arrived promptly, diagnosed the main cause and resolved my issue at a reasonable price. I found them to be thorough, informative and most of all, honest. I highly recommend Rightway!”

Leave Mold in the Cold This Winter

What happens to people when it gets cold out? They stay in. No matter how badly you want to see that newly released movie, Netflix by the fireplace can be a lot more appealing and cost-effective.

You aren’t the only one staying inside this winter – mold is happy to squat anywhere it can to survive a frigid February, and many times, it makes your basement into its home. Why? That’s simple. Mold loves basements, closets, and bathrooms because they are frequently dark, humid, and heated.

Killing mold is not a glorious job, but somebody has to do it. Rightway Waterproofing is happy to provide mold removal across New Jersey to assure residents of a healthier winter for their families, pets, and guests. Since many homes in New Jersey have basements, it’s important to have a water damage cleanup crew on call in case disaster strikes.

Just because rain turns to snow in the winter does not mean your leaks and floods go away. Don’t forget that snow eventually becomes water again, with nowhere to go. It will look for any crevice it can to set up shop. Don’t grow old with mold. Nip it in the bud before it gets out of hand.

Rightway Waterproofing’s water damage cleanup team has been keeping basements in NJ dry for over 27 years, and we don’t plan on stopping any time soon. We do whatever it takes to remove mold and we also help prevent mold by identifying problem areas and plugging potential flood sites.

Moral of the story? Be proactive. Don’t wait until your kids are coughing every time they step foot in the basement. Avoid mold at all costs, and always address the problem as soon as you notice it. Your health comes first, and Rightway Waterproofing looks forward to lending a hand this holiday season.

Mold is one of the living organisms that should not have a place at your family game nights. Contact us today for a free basement inspection (quote included) by clicking here or call us toll-free at 866-741-6190.

Rightway Waterproofing Provides “Wooder” Proofing for Philadelphians

Yes, you read the headline correctly.

Hello, Philly! Whether you pronounce it “wah-ter” or “wooder,” water is something that can be both vital and detrimental. If you combine wood and water you get wooder, but those are two things that should not be combined in your home. While doctors recommend we consume about eight glasses of H2O per day, no doctor will recommend mold (which is caused when water infiltrates your walls, floors [wood], and basement ceilings).

 

When we like water:

  • After a long day of work.
  • With a meal.
  • On a fishing trip.
  • At the neighborhood pool.
  • On the beach.

 

When we dislike water:

  • Leaks.
  • Mold.
  • Tsunamis.

 

 

We prefer to help you prevent disasters instead of responding to them. However, we are more than qualified to do both if need be. We always put our customers first, and your family’s safety is priority number one. When the weather gets rainy and cold, be careful and stay away from mold.

Rightway Waterproofing can assist with all of your mold remediation needs. After all, we’ve been doing things the right way for over 27 years. We are known for our basement repair services in Philadelphia, Montgomery County, and all of the neighboring communities.

Have you ever went down in your basement for some ping pong or XBox and felt a damp spot or two on the carpet? Does your cellar’s ceiling look spotty and wet? Don’t ignore warning signs! Nip your problem in the bud.

Don’t spend your Saturdays and Sundays panicking about a damp basement. You should be focused on your standard weekend activities like taking the kids to soccer, watching football, attending religious services, dining out, walking the park and anything else you prefer.

We offer free estimates to make sure you know exactly what you need and how much time and money to invest in fixing up your basement. If you want that finished basement you’ve been dreaming of but are unsure if it’s within your budget, let us know.

All About Umbrellas

Since Rightway Waterproofing is “The Original Umbrella” for your basement, we felt that it’d be nice to pay homage to the history of the marvelous invention that’s been keeping people dry for centuries.

Umbrellas have symbolized wealth and status, been a fashion statement and (of course) been used to protect individuals from the elements. They’ve evolved alongside technology to become efficient, effective and often stylish.

The parasol-style umbrella has been around since ancient Egypt. You  may have seen these sheer accessories being held by royalty to protect themselves from the sun (they may even have been fed grapes simultaneously).

It wasn’t until later when this invention became a device used to deflect water. In China, umbrella manufacturing became a profitable business that catered to the rich.

Fast forward to 1928, when the first foldable umbrella was invented by Hans Haupt. This was one of the biggest advancements in umbrella history. It allowed greater functionality and convenience. This innovation was patented in 1969 by Bradford E. Phillips and became an instant sensation.

Different Types of Umbrellas:

Classic Umbrellas – Opened and closed with two hands, these umbrellas have a locking mechanism to stay open.

Automatic Umbrellas – Small, compact, and able to be operated single-handedly. Smaller versions of these are called Pocket Umbrellas, which are very lightweight and under one foot in length. These are ideal for coat pockets, purses and briefcases.

Storm Umbrellas – These heavy-duty umbrellas are built to withstand high-speed wind and turbulent weather up to 55 mph. These are commonly the centerpiece for outdoor patio furniture and picnic tables.

BONUS – Cocktail Umbrellas – Don’t forget these adorable micro-umbrellas that are used to add some flair to your favorite sugary beverage. Generally, these are about two inches and serve no purpose other than to look pretty. (I guess you can use them to stir the drink?)

You’ll be able to enjoy a nice beachside cocktail knowing that your home’s cellar is protected while you are away. We understand the importance of Philadelphia basement waterproofing. After all, we are a go-to Philadelphia basement waterproofing company for a reason. We take pride in being your home’s umbrella.

Is Wetter Better?

Summer Time. Surfing selfies. Seashells by the sea shore. Sunscreen, sandals, and some serious seafood. Life is good. Not a care in the world. Well, almost.

Water is a great way to stay cool and hydrated in the heat, however, water can also be your biggest enemy when a storm sweeps the coast. If your basement is not waterproofed, serious damage can be caused by H2O.

Rightway Waterproofing is a seasoned Bucks County basement waterproofing operation that specializes in preventing flooding and mold growth. Before you mozy down to the beach with your buddies, make sure your home is protected.

Three Examples of When Wetter is Better:

1 – When you are Michael Phelps. He holds 22 Olympic swimming records and is only 31 years old. His swimming feats can make a barracuda jealous.

2 – When you go on Verruckt, the world’s tallest water slide is located in Kansas City, KS. The initial drop takes you down a 168 foot 7-inch structure before sending you down a thrilling 50-foot drop.

3 – When you can afford to drink Acqua Di Cristallo Tributo a Modigliani. The world’s most expensive bottled water comes in a 24-karat gold bottle and costs $60,000 for 750 milliliters.

Three Examples of When Wetter Isn’t Better:

1 – When a tropical storm (like Sandy) terrorizes the East Coast.

2 – When your basement is flooded to the point where it can double as a kiddy pool.

3 – When moisture builds up and causes toxic black mold which is particularly harmful to children and pets that get too close to it.

Try to Stay Dry

We are not just a Bucks County basement company. If your home experiences any type of water damage and needs mold remediation on any floor, we can help. We have over 20 years of experience, and we offer a lifetime guarantee to express our gratitude for your business. We are confident we have what it takes to keep your house dry and belongings safe.
