Howell is considered one of the “gateway” communities to the Shore in Central New Jersey. It is a quick 20-minute ride east to reach the coastal communities that people flock to every summer.
Howell is one of the larger communities in this area, as it was home to roughly 51,000 residents as of the 2010 Census, a 4.4 percent increase in population since 2000. The population in the town has actually exploded since the 1970s, when there were closer to 20,000 residents calling Howell home.
FUN FACT: Scenes from the 2005 remake film “War of the Worlds” were filmed in Howell. One of the neighborhoods, called Ardena Acres, is still standing in Universal Studios Hollywood.
Families account for almost all of Howell’s population breakdown, and it’s easy to see why they like to call the town home. Howell provides wonderful neighborhoods, access to both the Shore and New York City as well as great public schools. The median household income and median family income is high compared to the surrounding areas as well.
Homes in Howell range in both size and style very greatly. In fact, there’s still a lot of undeveloped land in Howell that should see new homes be built in the next few years. These homes are a diverse mix of split-level, colonial and ranch styles, all fitting in with the specific neighborhood.

Howell homeowners do have a plethora of choices in design and color for asphalt shingles that could allow their home to have a unique look. The three main choices of roof material and style are:
Homes in Howell are built to deal with the Central New Jersey climate, which often fluctuates from hot to cold, and vice versa, quite often. Even though it is closer to the Shore, Howell homes don’t take the extra pounding from the higher winds, sand and salt that come off the coast.
The roof is one of the most important aspects of your home. It keeps you and your family protected from all of nature’s elements, so it’s very important that you regularly assess the quality and lifespan of your roof, and replace it before it’s too late.
