Basement Waterproofing in Essex County, NJ

New Jersey’s second most densely populated county, Essex County has a diverse spectrum of land-use types, with its urban eastern half and more suburban, affluent western half. It’s also home to three of the most important transportation centers in the eastern United States: Newark Liberty International Airport, Penn Station and Port Newark. Along with thousands of miles of state roads, interstate highways and local streets, this creates plenty of nonporous surfaces that prevent rainwater from seeping into the ground. This means the rainwater has to find a place to settle. Most often, this is in parks, medial strips… and private property. Basement waterproofing has never been so important.

Rightway Waterproofing provides basement waterproofing services throughout much of New Jersey — so no matter where in Essex County you live, we can visit you at home and offer a free and fair estimate. If you have leaky basement walls, a toxic mold problem, or you simply want to turn your basement into a more livable space, we can help.

John and Barbara Vicich

“We wanted to thank you for your personal and specialized attention to the water problem we had in our basement. You took the time to inspect the whole situation and gave us recommendations, all of which worked. You had a way of explaining the process and materials that would be used in a way that we understood. We are very pleased with the work that was done and would highly recommend your company to anyone.”

Debbie, Berwyn

“The day after Hurricane Irene, all of my neighbors basements were filled with water, while mine remained dry! It is wonderful, everything remains dry and the battery backup worked beautifully when my power was out for 2 days. Dry AND quiet, thank you, thank you! Thanks! Debbie, Berwyn”

Doug Smith, Glenside

“All I have to say is that Hurricane Irene was no match for the job that Rightway did for my basement and my father-in-law’s. I had my basement done 5 years ago and we are still bone dry and my father-inlaw’s was done last year and another dry basement… Great job! I highly recommend them for waterproofing and mold remediation.”

-Doug Smith, Glenside


“I’d highly recommend these guys for your basement. My basement has been dry since they installed a sump pump and French drain in June. They offer a competitive price, they get the job done quickly and they stand by their work. Please mention my name if you proceed down the road with these guys.”


Angelo and Sandra Patiri

“We had our basement waterproofed with Rightway Waterproofing in 2007, after all this time and just getting through Hurricane Irene, we did not get a drop of water in our basement. Rightway Waterproofing did a very good job and we are very satisfied!”
