Toms River is one of the largest municipalities in New Jersey, ranking eighth in terms of population as of 2010 with 91,239 residents. It’s the second-most populous municipality in Ocean County, too.
People live in Toms River for a number of reasons. It’s not only located on Barnegat Bay, it’s also located along the Garden State Parkway. The town has great public schools and a nice downtown.
Toms River is also one of the safest places to live in the country. Morgan Quitno Press ranked it as the 14th safest city in the U.S. in 2007.
FUN FACT: Toms River has been home to various TV shows and films. Filming was done here for MTV’s “Made” and “Jersey Shore,” HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” and “The Amityville Horror” movie.
Toms River is also a very diverse town, especially in terms of the homes located there. Some homes are right on the Barnegat Bay or the Toms River (the actual river that leads to the bay), and take advantage of the beauty of the landscape. Other more inland homes are located in neighborhoods or on golf courses, but are only a short drive away from the water.
While Toms River homes come in all shapes and sizes, the roofs of these homes are almost all made from asphalt shingles. This type of material is built to withstand the climate and natural forces of the area. What’s nice about asphalt shingles, though, is it gives Toms River homeowners the opportunity to customize the look of the roof because of the different designs and colors available. The three main choices of roof material and style are:
Toms River homes’ roofs must be built to withstand the Central New Jersey region’s climate and frequent fluctuations in temperature. The homes that are located on or close to the water also must be able to hold up to the higher wind, sand and salt that come directly off the bay. Even some of the more inland homes have to deal with this as well.
The roof is one of the most essential parts of your home. It keeps you and your family protected from the outside elements. As such, it’s important to regularly assess the quality and lifespan of your roof, and decide to replace it before it becomes too late.
