Our deep understanding of specifying and installing asphalt shingle roofs came early on through many summers of stripping, preparing and then installing square after square after square of asphalt and architectural asphalt shingles on every type of roof imaginable. Each new asphalt job we get reminds us of our roots so we take a particularly nostalgic pleasure in doing this style of roofing.

Asphalt and Architectural Asphalt Shingles

The most common roofing material utilized here in the Northeast, asphalt shingle roofs represent a combination of beauty, affordability, and reliability not found in other roofing materials. In addition to having a variety of styles, textures, and colors from which to choose, asphalt shingles are cost-effective, durable and very easy to maintain.

Asphalt Shingle Composition

Composition of Typical Asphalt Shingle

The functional role of asphalt in this style of shingle is to serve as a waterproofing agent. It also holds the granules in place and adds to the overall strength of the roofing shingle.  The best asphalt will stay flexible and will not dry out or become hard or brittle for the expected life of the roofing shingle.

Today, advances in manufacturing and materials have made asphalt shingles stronger and more durable than ever. But all that brawn cannot eclipse the beauty and variety of architectural asphalt. There are cuts, patterns, and colors now available to match every design sensibility and aesthetic situation.

Strip Asphalt Roofing Shingles Single-layered asphalt roofing shingles typically designed to look like slate. Usually the lightest weight asphalt roofing shingles available in the market, they are built on a tough fiberglass base and each shingle provides resistance to blow-off and tearing. Strip roofing shingles are used primarily by home builders manufacturing economy priced homes or purchased by homeowners as replacement roofing shingles for homes that already have strip shingles on the roof.

Architectural Asphalt Roofing Shingles Recently, enhancements to dimensional shingles have resulted in a new generation of high-quality asphalt roofing products with distinctive and often dramatic appearances.  With these advancements came a new name:  architectural roofing shingles.  Also known as laminated or dimensional shingles, architectural roofing shingles typically are heavier weight than strip roofing shingles, are among the highest quality roofing products made and usually have improved warranty protections, which can range from 30-years to Lifetime.

Asphalt "Shake" Shingle

Asphalt “Shake” Shingle

Connecticut Roofcrafters has been able to create some stunning three-dimensional appearances using architectural shingles. Some of the most attractive architectural roofing shingles simulate cedar wood shakes; they are thick with random slots similar to real shakes.  Another architectural shingle design imitates the look of slate without the weight issues that normally accompany those materials and therefore do not require any additional roof support as slate would.
