Here are close up before and after images of a home in Canton CT that was in need of a new roof due to lichen deteriorating the shingles and detracting from the beauty of the home. The color they choose is Owens Corning Colonial Slate.

These home owners in N. Stonington desperately needed a new roof on their barn. As you can tell there was a tremendous amount of organic growth on the roof of this barn. This barn also needed some rafters replaced since these were completely rotten. Now they have a top quality roof backed by Millstream that will last for decades!

In August of 2016 we completed this Onyx Black roof in West Hartford Connecticut. The client had an aging roof that was long overdue for replacement, so we explained the issues and created a unique proposal to bring this roof back to life!

In 2016 we installed a new Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System to this home located in Vernon featuring Teak color shingles. Our team of experts dropped by to provide a thorough diagnosis of the roof, allowing our guys to pinpoint the exact issues. We guided the homeowner through the process, ensuring a job done right!

In 2016 we installed these Owens Corning Brownwood shingles to this Marlborough Connecticut home.  The homeowners were pleased with the job and the new roof looks great!

Asphalt Shingles

asphalt shingle roofing
The preferred choice. Asphalt shingles are the most commonly used residential roofing material.

Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material for residential homes. This material offers a great blend of durability and affordability, with multiple styles and colors available to choose from. Modern technology has developed strong asphalt shingles than ever before, and most are reinforced with a fiberglass mat to prevent tearing. Asphalt shingles come in three tab and architectural:

Three tab shingles

  • Consistent shingle size
  • Less weight than architectural shingles
  • Lower cost

Architectural shingles

  • Various sizes and shapes create a dimensional appearance
  • Thicker shingles are more durable
  • Generally helps improve property value

As an added benefit, roof replacement and repair can be handled relatively easily with asphalt shingles. The roofing pros at Millstream Construction can help you decide what type of asphalt shingles are the best fit for your home depending on your needs and budget.

Wood Shingles

Unmatched beauty. Although there are some maintenance challenges, it’s hard to beat the appearance of wood shingles.

If you’re looking for a unique appearance for your home, wood shingles and shakes are a great option. Wood has a beautiful finished look as a roofing material and provides great durability. Wood shingles are cut with a saw and have a consistent thickness and shape, while wood shakes are split and are usually thicker and rougher. Either option can be used depending on the look you want to achieve and the style of your home.

Wood is a great roofing choice, but it will require more maintenance than an asphalt shingle roof. Wood shingles and shakes are typically more expensive to install as well. However, the benefits of wood shingles still make them a popular choice — especially for historic homes.

Slate Roofing

slate roofing
The gold standard. Slate roofing is the best roofing material available, but installation is pricey.

When it comes to roofing materials, nothing beats slate. Slate shingles are slivers of rock that are cut in the shape of shingles and installed as the roofing material. Slate is a versatile material that has unmatched appearance and durability, making it a fantastic choice for any home.

However, slate roofs are very expensive and very heavy, sometimes requiring additional work to the structure before installation. Slate can be difficult to work with as well, meaning an experienced and skilled contractor is a necessity. If you’re interested in slate roofing, the experts at Millstream Construction can help you find the best solution and give you a high-quality installation.
