Shingle Roofing Lifespan

A shingle roof can last between fifteen and thirty years. When you follow a maintenance program, your roof can last longer than normal. Without proper care, it can last up to fifteen years, but this is not typical. Adding a coating will assist in keeping your shingle roof in mint condition for longer. Keep in mind that shingle roofs need more maintenance than some other roofing types.

Shingle Types

There are six types of shingles:

Traditional wood shingles: Over the years, there have been improvements in the quality of wood used for shingles. In addition, new technology is used to pressure treat the wood, protecting it from the elements.


Slat, flagstone, and plastic shingles: These three types of shingles are not used at Sully-Jones Roofing Company.

Metal shingles: Metal shingles are a fantastic way to benefit from the strength and durability of metal while enjoying the classic look of shingles.

Composite shingles: This is the most common shingle type. When our clients imagine shingle roofs, they typically are thinking of composite shingles. Composite shingles are made of either fiber cement or asphalt, both of which have granules embedded in them. These granules can become loose if a shingled roof is not maintained properly.

A shingle roof will need repairs at some point, just like any other roof. Shingles have the tendency to break, become brittle, and they are vulnerable to damage from severe weather. This is why they typically need more maintenance. Over time, shingles will need restoration as well as replacement.
