LAKEWOOD, N.J. - Oct. 28, 2014 - PRLog -- Rebuilding homes throughout Monmouth and Ocean counties post-Sandy has been a challenge for both home owners and builders alike.  From insurance issues and new building guidelines to confusing flood hazard elevation rules, the learning curve for these new requirements can mean serious financial consequences when work is completed without full knowledge of compliance. Fortunately, members of Shore Builders Association have been at the forefront of the most recent updates and requirements as a result of superstorm Sandy from both legislative, and building perspectives. According to John Cummins, President of Shore Builders Association, “Our builder members are well versed in the latest building regulations that differ from town to town at the New Jersey shore. Keeping ahead of information on rebuilding from FEMA and other related agencies helps our members keep their customers up-to-date in this ever changing environment.”

For instance, James Pittenger, a 5th generation builder whose company, Pittenger Builders, has been constructing homes at the Jersey Shore since 1905 suggests that “Besides the obvious changes to the physical landscape created by Sandy, there have been extensive changes administratively that may be daunting for a homeowner or inexperienced contractor.  My recommendation would be for a homeowner to use a local builder familiar with New Jersey's permitting process, land use regulation and extensive RREM program rules. Contacting the Shore Builders Association is a great start for any homeowner looking for some guidance.”

Chris Amato, whose company CMM Construction has also been building at the New Jersey Shore for 35 years, agrees with Pittenger. “The amount of regulation and number of government agencies involved in the building process post-Sandy has necessitated an increased role in helping homeowners including all aspects from design, permitting, construction and completion of their homes.  In turn, Shore Builders Association, continues to provide much-needed support for builders in disseminating the information needed to keep ahead of the complicated building process in New Jersey.”

“I don't know why a local builder wouldn't become a member of the Shore Builders Association.  Ever since joining the Association, I get together with other builders at least once a month to discuss what our personal businesses are experiencing and offer each other guidance, whether it be how to improve operations or navigate a new municipality one of us may not have built in before.”  The Association supports members through advocacy, education and business opportunities within the building industry. For more information or a referral to a licensed builder in New Jersey, homeowners are urged to call the Shore Builders Association of Central NJ office today at 732.364.2828 or visit their website at <> .
