Shingles are made of various materials such as wood, slate, flagstone, cement, metal, plastic, and composite material such as asphalt shingles. Here in the U.S., fiberglass-based asphalt shingles are by far the most common roofing material used for residential roofing applications. They are easy to install, relatively affordable, last 20 to 50 years and can be recycled when it’s time to get a new roof. Asphalt shingles come in a large number of styles and colors, so they are easy to customize to fit your personal style and taste.

Hartford, CT’s Residential Roofers
Warranties on asphalt shingles range from a 20 to 50 years or more and are transferable should you ever sell your home. Many manufacturers’ warranties provide full coverage for labor and materials in the first three to ten years after application. Our residential roofers will gladly explain these in more detail when visiting you for an onsite roof estimate at your Hartford, CT area home.
One negative aspect of asphalt shingle roofs is that they provide little defense from the summer’s heat. A study conducted by the University of Texas at Arlington found that attic temperatures of a wood roofed structure were approximately 28 degrees cooler than asphalt buildings. To lower this heat build up, our roofers can install a radiant barrier “heat shield” into the roof system. This reduces attic temperature by 25 to 30 degrees.
