With proper installation and consistent maintenance, an asphalt shingle roof can last 20 to 30 years. However, it is subject to the effects of weathering throughout its lifespan, most of it a result of long-term exposure to the elements. Several factors also affect how well it ages. Dynamic Roofing Concepts, Inc., the leading source of asphalt shingles, metal and tile roofing products in the area, discusses them below.

Quality of the Roofing Material

You can expect your roofing system to last long if you choose high-quality roofing materials. To be sure, you must work with a manufacturer-certified roofing company. With them, you can rest easy knowing your investment is properly installed.

Structure Underneath the Roof

Apart from the roof shingles, the additional components hidden underneath them play an essential role in the overall lifespan of the whole system. A vapor barrier installed over a high-quality sheathing material will help extend the lifespan of your roof.

Roof Slope

A steep-sloped asphalt shingle roof doesn’t retain moisture like a low-sloped one does, which means it is less likely to incur moisture damage. A low-sloped asphalt shingle roof, however, can withstand the damaging effects of strong winds than its steep-sloped counterpart. Trusted roofers like us take local wind speeds and average rainfall into account when determining the slope of the roofing system we are installing.

Roof Color

The color of your roof also determines how well it ages. Despite being more aesthetically pleasing, dark-colored roofs absorb more heat from the sun, making them more susceptible to ultraviolet damage. Light-colored roofs, meanwhile, are more reflective, allowing them to minimize thermal cycling.
