Colts Neck Township is a township in Monmouth County, in the U.S. state of New Jersey. It is located in the New York Metropolitan Area. As of the 2020 United States census, the township's population was 9,957, a decrease of 185 (−1.8%) from the 2010 census count of 10,142, which in turn reflected a decline of 2,189 (−17.8%) from the 12,331 counted in the 2000 census.

The municipality of Colts Neck Township was initially established by an act of the New Jersey Legislature as Atlantic Township on February 18, 1847, carved from portions of Freehold Township, Middletown Township, and Shrewsbury Township. The name was changed to "Colts Neck Township" as of November 6, 1962, based on the results of a referendum held that day.

The township has been ranked as one of the state's highest-income communities. Based on data from the American Community Survey for 2013–2017, Colts Neck residents had a median household income of $167,480, ranked fifth in the state among municipalities with more than 10,000 residents, more than double the statewide median of $76,475.

Colts Neck is a wealthy bedroom community in Central New Jersey, located within the New York metropolitan area. Many people choose to move to Colts Neck due to its open space and proximity to the Jersey Shore, while still being within commuting distance of New York City. The township's strict zoning ordinances have long kept out urban development and chain stores, allowing for locally owned businesses, while still being close to malls, movie theaters, and other amenities in neighboring communities.

The township has a Farmland Preservation Committee which to date has preserved nearly 1,000 acres (400 ha) of land, providing one way in which Colts Neck has been able to prevent large-scale development. The township has strict zoning regulations, and because there is no public water or sewage service, most homes must be built on lots covering a minimum of 2, 5 and 10 acres (4.0 ha).

Originally a farming community, Colts Neck has long been known for its large number of equestrian farms. From the 1950s into the 1970s many of Colts Neck's heavily wooded areas were developed with large colonial and ranch-style houses on acre-sized lots. In the 1980s and continuing into the 2000s much of the town's farm land has been replaced with large houses, mansions and sprawling estates, although a large number of equestrian farms remain. During this time period increasing home prices in northern New Jersey and New York City resulted in large numbers of people moving to central New Jersey, causing real estate prices in Colts Neck and surrounding towns to rise considerably over the course of the two decades. Colts Neck real estate prices remain high despite the economic downturn: as of November 2012, the average listing price of a house was $1,433,112 and the number of home sales is down 41.4% from the previous year.

Many of Colts Neck's residents are professional business people who commute into New York City's financial district, as could be seen in the unusual proportion of the small community who were lost in the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center. A memorial garden dedicated to the five members of the community who were lost was created at the municipal center by sculptor Jim Gary, a member of the community who was raised in Colts Neck. The central feature of the memorial garden is his sculpture of metal and stained glass.

In 2018, Colts Neck made national headlines when a man set his brother's mansion on fire, killing his brother, sister in law and their two children.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the township had a total area of 31.79 square miles (82.34 km), including 30.72 square miles (79.55 km2) of land and 1.08 square miles (2.79 km) of water (3.38%).

Unincorporated communities, localities and place names located partially or completely within the township include Bucks Mill, Cooks Mills,[citation needed] Hominy Hill, Lippincott, Montrose, Phalanx, Scobeyville, Swimming River and Vanderburg.

The township borders the Monmouth County communities of Freehold Township, Holmdel Township, Howell Township, Marlboro Township, Middletown Township, Tinton Falls and Wall Township.

Laird & Company produces Laird's Applejack at its facility in the Scobeyville section of the township. Since the end of distilling in Colts Neck in 1972, the company has had its apples picked and distilled in Virginia, and then brought north to be aged, blended and bottled at its facility in the township. The only remaining producer of Applejack in the United States, the company received the first license granted by the United States Department of the Treasury, which was granted in 1780.

Four JG's Orchards & Vineyards is a winery based in the township, named for the shared initials of the owners and their two children.

 Asphalt Paving in Colts Neck Township, New Jersey

Asphalt paving is one of the most commonly used forms of construction today. This is due to its high adaptability and low cost. In addition, it is also considered to be a very practical option when it comes to home paving. However, it does have certain shortcomings that need to be taken note of. Read on to know about some of these and consider whether you should opt for asphalt or not.

One of the disadvantages of using an asphalt driveway is that it can be quite slippery. You need to make sure, therefore, that you drive your car carefully on it. And even if you do so, there is still a chance of your vehicle getting stuck on the asphalt. So, you should keep a good grip on the steering wheel and use all the available help you can. This is especially important if you are making a long-distance drive.

There is also a possibility that asphalt might damage the surface underneath if it is not properly sealed. This is because asphalt is a petroleum product and petroleum products can cause damage to the environment. Therefore, you should make sure that the paved area is adequately sealed to make sure that it does not erode.

It is also important to remember that asphalt can crack when it gets too wet. If this happens, you will need to replace the area with new asphalt so that it does not get cracked again in future. Otherwise, you may end up spending more on repairing cracks that you have caused. In fact, asphalt cracks can be a real headache especially during heavy rains when the paver becomes very susceptible to water penetration.

Apart from this, asphalt is also susceptible to cracking when it is exposed to heat. This is especially true during summer months when the temperature is high. During this period, it is possible for the asphalt to get very soft and mushy. When this happens, it is much harder to seal the surface properly and repair any cracks that have developed.

Another problem that can occur with an asphalt paver is when it is being used improperly. For instance, when the asphalt paver is being used to pave driveways, it can easily grind over the edges of the driveway. The grout lines might also get damaged during this process. In fact, there are some homeowners who prefer using concrete or paved paths in front of their homes and driveways. However, they often forget that they should also seal these paths. Sealing the pathways will help to keep them protected from debris, grit, water and sand.

Homeowners should therefore find a qualified company to clean up their asphalt paver once in a while. These professionals will use a pressure washer to remove all the dirt and debris that have built up on the paver. They will then use a power washer to completely clean the water surface. After this is done, you can simply have the surfaces sealed and maintained by your local company.

By hiring a company to perform regular maintenance on your asphalt paver, you will be able to prevent some very common problems. For instance, if you find that the pavers have cracks, you can ask your local maintenance company to repair these cracks before they become larger. You can also ask them to apply new asphalt once a year. If you forget to do this, the asphalt will eventually wear out and begin to crack again. By properly maintaining your asphalt paver, you will be able to save yourself money in the long run because you will not have to call maintenance on a regular basis.

 Basement Repairs in Colts Neck Township, New Jersey

Basement Repairs Masonry

Basement Repairs Masonry

Brick and block walls and foundations are prone to flooding, structural damage and shifting. Repairs may involve drainage systems, waterproofing, and reinforcement of walls to reduce movement. In the past, a common method of repairing severely damaged walls involved using large steel I-beams upright against the wall to prevent further movement. Today, less obtrusive methods are used. For concrete walls that have moved less than two inches, carbon fiber strips are epoxied to the wall in locations determined by engineering data. For more significant movement, low profile channel steel beams can be used to stabilize the masonry.

The first step in any masonry repair is to identify and treat the underlying cause of deterioration or failure. This could include previous painting (which traps moisture in the masonry), poor drainage around the house or parging, or efflorescence -- the crystallization of salts on the surface or within the brick leading to spalling. It is also important to use the correct type of mortar for repointing. Older houses built before 1930 usually used a high lime or all lime mortar that was designed to be softer and more breathable to absorb stress from building movement.

When a foundation is sinking, shifting or cracking, it is often caused by excess soil movement or water leaks that are causing the foundation to shift. A solution to this problem is to install steel push piers or helical piers to transfer the weight of the foundation from unstable soil to stable piers. Foundation lifting is another option that uses hydraulic equipment to raise a foundation from below. This technique can be a permanent solution to a sinking or shifting foundation if done by a licensed professional.

 Foundation Repair in Colts Neck Township, New Jersey

Masonry Foundation Repair

When a brick or masonry foundation begins to crack, it's a serious problem that requires a professional inspection and possibly a permanent repair solution. Early signs of a failing foundation include step cracks that develop from settling walls, vertical corner cracks that form due to shrinking soil around the foundation and bulging or bowing masonry wall.

If the foundation is still structurally sound, a homeowner might choose to repair small horizontal cracks with epoxy and a quality masonry sealant, especially during dry weather. For larger cracks and heaving, a company that performs concrete or foundation repair should be consulted.

With a poured concrete foundation, heaving and bowing is often caused by hydrostatic pressure created by the freeze/thaw cycle of moisture in the ground. It's essential that soil conditions at the time of construction were ideal for the type of foundation being used. If these conditions have changed, a geotechnical engineer may need to be hired to complete a soil report. This can add $500-$3,000 to the cost of a foundation repair project.

In a masonry foundation, lateral pressure is seen most commonly in the mortar joints. These crack in stair-step patterns along horizontal and vertical edges of the wall. As the pressure continues, the masonry blocks will eventually tip inward at their base. An old method of repairing severely damaged masonry walls called for anchors to be drilled through the exterior and extended inside of the home. This was a very expensive and time-consuming process.

 Masonry in Colts Neck Township, New Jersey

Masonry Contractor

Masonry Contractor is a general term for someone who does concrete and stone projects. Concrete contractors work with either poured or block concrete while stone masons are usually more focused on stone.

Whether you need an outdoor patio, retaining wall, or cozy fireplace a mason can handle it. They often specialize in specific types of masonry materials like brick, stone, and tile, and they know how to best use these materials in varied settings. In addition to knowing how to work with the different types of materials, a good mason can recommend solutions that are more cost-effective in the long run.

When it comes to hiring a mason, you should ask for references and examples of their past work. You should also find out if they are insured in case of any accidents that might occur while working on your project. A good mason will have no problem providing proof of insurance and a copy of their license if needed.

Another thing to consider is how much a mason charges for their services. It is important to get quotes from several masons before making a final decision. You should also find out how they accept payments and whether they provide a warranty on their work. Lastly, make sure that you know when the mason will start and finish your project. If they are late, it could result in delays with your home renovation and cost you more money. Also, be sure that they bring the necessary tools with them so that they can begin working as soon as possible.

 Driveway Paving in Colts Neck Township, New Jersey

Whether you're replacing your old driveway or simply trying to improve your curb appeal, there are a few things you need to know about driveway paving. From the cost to the materials used, here are some helpful tips to guide your next project.

What You Need to Know About Driveway Paving

The best way to determine the true cost of your driveway paving project is to get a free estimate from a driveway paving specialist near you. There are many experts ready to help. The cost of a new driveway will vary greatly depending on the size, shape, and material of the driveway.

There are four main types of driveways. They are asphalt, concrete, gravel, and pavers. All four come in different styles and performance qualities. The most popular material is a paving stone.

However, you can also install a small gravel driveway. If you are a green space fan, you may want to consider installing a grass paver instead.

The cost of driveway paving will depend on the size of your driveway, the material you choose, and the labor required. This includes the actual installation of the driveway as well as the disposal of the old material.

The cheapest material for a driveway is a gravel one. The average price ranges from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. Alternatively, you can pay for the labor to lay down a paver base.

A properly constructed driveway can last decades. The most durable type is a gravel or grass filled plastic paver. These can be easily replaced if they start to wear out.

 Paver Patio in Colts Neck Township, New Jersey

Paver Patio Installation Basics

Pavers are the do-it-yourself patio paving solution that nearly any homeowner can handle. The process starts with clearing and leveling the area for the paved surface, which may be treated with weed killer to prevent the growth of any unwanted plants while you work. You then create a base for the pavers by digging 6 inches or more to allow for a layer of gravel and a thick bed of sand. A sand base is easier to install than dirt, and it provides better load distribution and thermal resistance than the clay soil under most backyards.

Before you begin paving, you should always call 811 (the national call-before-you-dig number) to have any underground pipes or cables marked. This step is necessary to ensure you don’t damage or obstruct anything as you install your patio, and it’s a good idea regardless of the size of the project.

If you choose to lay your pavers on a slope, you’ll need to mark the slope with a stake and string. You want the highest point of your paver patio to be at or slightly above ground level where it meets any doors or structures on the house, and you can use a line level to make sure the mason lines are straight.

You’ll also need to edge the patio with plastic edging, which can be secured by driving included spikes into the ground. Most paver edging is made of lightweight high-density polypropylene. It has tongue-and-groove edges that fit together, and the spikes are spaced about 12 inches apart to keep the edging from coming loose.

 Pressure Washing in Colts Neck Township, New Jersey

Starting Your Own Pressure Washing Service

Pressure Washing Service is a type of cleaning where water is shot from a hose or other device under high pressure to clean dirt, grime, moss, mold, loose paint, and other debris from outdoor surfaces. It’s an effective way to clean items such as driveways, sidewalks, decks, and home siding. Using a pressure washer can be dangerous, however, since the water is sprayed at high speeds and could hurt someone if not done properly. For this reason, it’s best to hire a professional service to handle the job.

Besides looking good, regular commercial pressure washing has a number of practical benefits. For one, it prevents damage to the building or items outside by removing things like moss and mildew before they cause corrosion. It also extends the life of the building’s exterior by preventing damage from rain, snow, and ice. And lastly, it improves the overall safety and hygiene of the building’s occupants by removing contaminants like dirt, mold, mildew, and chemicals that can contaminate indoor air.

If you’re thinking of starting your own Pressure Washing Service, there are a few steps you need to take to make sure your business is successful.

Steps & Walkways Masonry

Steps & Walkways Masonry

Your walkways and stairs are one of the first things that your guests and visitors will see, and they can set a strong impression about your home or business. At PatioScapes by SalCorp Landscaping, we create beautiful masonry walkways and stairs that complement your landscaping while offering easy access to your home or building. Our masonry work can be done in various materials, and we provide a variety of styles to suit your taste.

When choosing a material for your walkways and steps, you should consider how they will be used. For example, a rough or uneven surface may be hard on feet or exacerbate existing problems such as erosion or cracking. We will help you select a material that will look good and be durable enough for heavy use.

A stone walkway is a traditional and classic option, but there are many other types of stones to choose from. We have experience constructing walks in granite, sandstone, limestone and slate, among others. We can also use brick, pavers or concrete blocks. Brick or paver walkways offer advantages over poured concrete. They are more resistant to damage from metal snow removal tools and deicing salts, and they have a textured surface that prevents weed growth.

Stone steps are generally more expensive than brick, but they do offer a timeless look and durability. The price for stone varies depending on the type and size of staircase.

 Waterproofing in Colts Neck Township, New Jersey

Foundation Waterproofing

Foundation Waterproofing is a multi-step process that involves a series of treatments and methods designed to prevent the infiltration of ground water into a home or building. It is usually done by using a variety of membranes, drains and treatment. This process may be as simple as installing a perimeter drain and damp proofing the concrete or as complex as adding a Geodrain cavity drainage membrane and drain system.

In the case of the former, a contractor will dig outside the building’s foundation and install perimeter drains along with a layer of dimple mat or another waterproofing membrane. Preparation for this includes obtaining service locates that involve gas, water hydro or cable; and removing any dirt or clay that is against the foundation footing or wall. In addition, grading the soil closest to the house is often required to ensure that runoff flows away from the house rather than toward it. Similarly, rerouting downspouts to drain further away from the foundation will also help to reduce moisture problems.

This type of waterproofing is a good choice for a new construction or in cases where an older, existing basement is being converted to living space. A professional should be able to provide you with specific recommendations that are tailored to your home’s needs and site conditions.

The most effective waterproofing is a comprehensive system that addresses moisture infiltration issues from multiple angles. The ideal approach would include a layer of a material like MB 2K Plus that is designed to resist high levels of hydrostatic pressure. Then a secondary layer of an acrylic sealant that is injected through the concrete to fill cracks and voids is applied.

What Are the Benefits of Asphalt Resurfacing and Overlay Services? Ultimately, you'll be happy with the finished result, but what's the right approach for your situation?

What Are the Benefits of Asphalt Resurfacing And Overlay Services?

Let's look at cost, time, and preparation. Read on to learn more about repaving your driveway or parking lot. And then, contact a professional company to get the job done right! And don't forget to compare costs and labor times, too!


Asphalt resurfacing and overlay services are typically less expensive than a full reconstruction of the surface. Typically, the new layer sits one and a half to two inches above the existing concrete. Overlays are also a cheaper alternative to complete reconstruction, and they typically deliver the same level of quality. However, the cost of these services will depend on the type of asphalt you choose. Below are some of the factors to consider.


If your driveway is looking a little tired, it may be time to get an asphalt overlay or resurfacing service. Asphalt overlays are a relatively inexpensive method to fix surface damage. These services apply a new layer of asphalt over the old one, and the old surface serves as a foundation for the new asphalt. Because an overlay is less expensive than a full reconstruction, it may be a better choice if your driveway is getting too old or has extensive structural damage.


If you're looking to replace the pavement on your parking lot or highway, you'll want to know how much asphalt resurfacing and overlay services will cost. The cost will depend on a few different factors, including the square footage of the road, depth of repairs, and additional materials. To get a fair estimate, ask the contractors for an estimate for the labor required to resurface or overlay your road.


The preparation for asphalt resurfacing and overlay services begins with the removal of failed sections of the roadway. These sections are removed and replaced with a new section, either an asphalt overlay or a slurry resurfacing project. Inspectors determine which areas need resurfacing or replacement and may need surface treatment or a modified seal. This process should be performed systematically. The resulting resurfaced section will be up to one and a half inches higher than the existing concrete.


Using asphalt resurfacing and overlay services is an affordable and effective way to fix the problems on your pavement. Overlays can repair small cracks in your pavement, as well as fix larger ones. They are ideal for repairs of older pavements that have deteriorated. They can also improve the look of your parking lot or driveway. But how can you tell which one is right for you? Here are some tips to determine whether asphalt resurfacing and overlay services are right for you.


Overlays are an inexpensive solution to minor cracks in your asphalt driveway. However, they should only be used on a limited number of spots, such as minor stains and ruts. Overlays are not recommended for severely damaged asphalt because they may add to your total replacement cost. Instead, choose an asphalt repair company that offers a comprehensive range of resurfacing options. Listed below are the common problems associated with overlays.
