Forked River NJ Residential Roofing Shingles

Gerry Smith and his G&C Home Improvements roofing crew removed the old asphalt roofing shingles and felt paper of this Forked River NJ home to expose and inspect the plywood roof deck.  This is standard procedure for G&C. Residential roofing has many components and each is important to the protection of your home from the weather elements. If soft or soggy spots are present when inspecting the plywood roof deck, the next step is removal of the plywood and inspection of the roof rafters and ceiling joist of the home. If the old shingles were doing their job and the plywood was never exposed to moisture, it can be cleaned of nails and debris in preparation for a new layer of roofing underlayment.


Gerry Smith is the owner of G&C Home Improvements and is a certified IKO professional roofing contractor. He has passed stringent IKO product education and testing and has many years of roofing, building and remodeling experience. Gerry is qualified to diagnose and correct roofing problems discovered during the installation of residential roofing systems.
On this Lacey Twp. NJ roofing replacement job the new shingles were installed with the following process. First new IKO ice and water shield is laid down around the roof perimeter. This is protection against ice backup or wind driven rain.  New roofing underlayment is installed as the base or shingle underlayment. The new IKO dimensional roof shingles and a new ridge ventilation system were installed to ventilate the attic space and extend the life of the home. New IKO pro edge starter shingles are used as part of the roof system. The G&C team replaced all of the vent pipe collars and step flashing to give the entire roof a new round of guaranteed home protection from rain, snow and other exterior moisture.  The installation of the IKO roof shingles with a wind rating of 115 MPH and an immaculate cleanup job are the final phase of the roof replacement process.

G&C takes care of the construction cleanup and old shingle disposal as per DEP and local building code requirements.  The entire process from building permits to finished new roof is what the professionals at G & C Home Improvements offer to all Ocean County homeowners.
