Most of today’s asphalt shingles are designed to provide adequate home protection for a period of time ranging from 20 to 30 years or even longer. Do you know at what point a homeowner begins gambling with the shingle downward tipping point?
Shingles are typically referred to as a 20 year, 30 year, 40 year, etc. shingles. The number of years mentioned serves as an indicator for the lifetime cycle of shingle protection, but should ALSO serve as a reminder that it is always give or take several years, based on environmental conditions in your area and preventative maintenance over the years. As a rule of thumb you can expect a 30 year shingle to outlast a 20 year, as a 40 year would a 30 year, despite the region your live in. Likewise, you can expect shingles to begin cycling downwards as the lifetime expectancy nears.
