Remodeling Contractor Brick NJ 08723
This G&C Home Improvement project included a major addition to a Brick New Jersey home. Gerry Smith, the owner of G&C was hired as the remodeling contractor for this Brick NJ 800 sq. foot home renovation. The addition is located in a flood zone so it needed to be raised to 1 foot above free board in order to meet the new FEMA flood charts and town codes and requirements.

The project started with the foundation excavation and the pouring of the concrete for the footing. A block foundation was built on top of the concrete footing. The foundation features openings for smart foundation flood vents the allow water trapped within the foundation to escape in the event of flooding. The addition was framed with a combination of conventional fir framing lumber and engineered lumber (laminated beams and tji, and tj-230 floor joists). The subfloor of 3/4 T&G fir plywood and 2×4 exterior wall studs, plates, 2×6 / 2×8 / 2×10 ceiling joist, rafters and headers completed the framing. The sheathing and roofing were done with 1/2 CDX Fir Plywood.
The interior of this Ocean County addition was completed with fiberglass insulation to building code and typical 1/2 sheetrock. The addition received an electrical sub panel for its own circuit breakers and shut off. Custom interior lighting, 100BTU gas furnace and 2 ton air conditioning unit were installed to make this addition comfortable year round.
On the outside American Craftsman double hung window units with a lifetime warranty were installed all around. The home and new addition were sided with with royal crest siding in 4-1/2 dutch lap green with new colonial shutters to trim the windows.
