Toms River Roofing Contractor

G&C Home Improvements made repairs to this Toms River NJ 08753 residential roof.  The old asphalt roof shingles were removed, exposing a variety of problems that needed to be addressed before the new IKO roof shingles could be installed.  The next step was to remove the rotted plywood and inspect the roof rafters for structural integrity.  Several of the roof rafters along the skylight opening required replacement.  Once that was finished new 1/2 fir plywood was installed to replace the water damaged roof sheathing.

A new Velux Skylight was installed as part of this repair and new roof installation.  Gerry Smith and the G&C roof crew are capable of all types of roof contractor services. They have been serving Toms River, Brick, Jackson and all of Ocean County for well over 20 years.


To receive a valid roof warranty IKO ice and water shield is laid down around the perimeter of the roof.  This stops blown rain and ice dams that can happen in the gutter from ever reaching the plywood.  Next the 15 lb astm felt paper covers the entire roof area.  IKO leading edge plus starter shingles are used to secure the first line of shingles.  New IKO Cambridge Roof Shingles in a dual grey color were selected by the homeowners to compliment the exterior of their Toms River residence. Hip and ridge shingles from IKO finished off the job.


This job also included the reflashing of the fireplace chimney and new flashing boots on all vent stacks.  Call G&C today for all of your home improvement needs 732-977-3557
