One of the most common questions we get asked at West Side Roofing is how long a traditional shingle roof is expected to last. The most basic roof lasts, on average, around 18-20 years.
A lot of things factor into your roof’s longevity, such as how well your shingles withstand winter weather, high winds, or possible storm damage.
Premium roofs, such as metal, have a longer lifespan and can keep your home protected for a maximum of 50 years.
Fortunately, even if you don’t opt for a high-end metal roof, today’s asphalt shingle roofs are more durable and made to last much longer than those installed several decades ago. A shingle roof installed today should last for at least 30 years, making for a one-time project while in your home.
