The Best Shingles for Buildings in Connecticut

Connecticut has humid continental climate, with warm summers that get high precipitation and winters that are quite cold, but get moderate amounts of precipitation. The four seasons are distinct and temperatures do not vary extremely during short periods. The balanced climate is quite mild on Connecticut roofs, making shingles the perfect solution for buildings in the area – here are the varieties that work best:

  • Asphalt shingles – the lightest weight and the most affordable variety of all shingles features high resistance to tearing, humidity, sunshine and winds provides great protection for any building. For local installation look to the professional folks at New England Masonry and Restoration;
  • Dimensional shingles – these are thicker shingles made from multiple layers of material to create a three-dimensional appearance and to offer more protection to your home than asphalt shingles. Dimensional shingles are also more expensive and heavier than asphalt shingles; 
  • Wood shingles – expensive varieties that need expert installation and regular maintenance, but uniquely beautiful products that work great on historical buildings;
  • Composite shingles – made from various materials such as rubber compounds or resins, composite shingles carry the longest warranties of all shingle varieties. They are very popular because they efficiently replicate natural materials that are much more expensive such as slate, other varieties of stone or wood.
