How Long Does a Shingle Roof Last?

FREE ESTIMATE(623) 471-7096

A shingle roof usually lasts anywhere from 20 to 30 years. However, there are a few things you can do to make your roof last even longer. In this blog post, we will discuss the six main factors that affect the lifespan of your shingle roof.

These factors include the material quality, installation quality, ventilation quality, the environment, the surface exposure of your roof, and the angle of your roof. In this article, we will investigate these factors and also provide some tips on how to extend the life of your roof. Read on to learn more!

How Long Does A Shingle Roof Last?

Material Quality

If you want a roof that will last as long and cost less, go with the higher quality materials. The difference in lifespan is significant enough to make it worth considering if your budget allows for this upgrade!

Installation Quality

When it comes to the lifespan of your roof, proper installation is crucial. Improper or sloppy work can cause severe defects that will shorten its useful life span and bring unnecessary problems in return for what should be a seamless experience! That’s why choosing an experienced team who knows exactly how they’re doing things gets all aspects off on track with little effort needed from you after-the job has been completed. 

Ventilation Quality

Well-ventilated attics have been shown to extend the lifespan of a roof’s materials. In contrast, unventilated or poorly vented roofs can reduce how long those tiles last and could lead you to needing more work done on your home in general because there would be less protection against water damage from rainstorms which are known causes for Roof repairs after all!


The sun is a powerful and relentless force that can cause damage to your skin if you’re not careful. We offer many different types of tile and metal shingle options for Phoenix residents who want the best protection against the harmful UV rays in their environment

Surface Exposure

The orientation of your roof will affect its lifespan. This is due to how much sunlight hits it and, thus, the length that lasts before being replaced or repaired by professionals like us at Pinnacle Roofing. In addition, roof slopes facing south receive more sun than any other side, so they need shorter-lasting materials for safety reasons!

Angle Of Your Roof

The angle with which your roof slopes will be affected by the sunlight. The more that hits it, the shorter its lifespan- so choose wisely! A pitch or slope favored towards south-facing aspects can help an installation last longer than one facing north because of how much solar radiation they receive each day; however, this does nothing if cared for adequately protecting what’s on top – like shingles, for example?

  • I was in a hurry to replace my roof because Tesla solar was installing my system and had moved up my installation date. Pinnacle was able to bump up my roof installation a few weeks in order to accommodate my solar install. I really appreciated this. Everyone with whom I dealt was professional. I was happy with my new roof.

  • Had plywood and surface damage on a large 400 sq foot second story 29 year old walk deck/balcony. Pinnacle Roofing did an amazing job repairing existing plywood, adding a second layer of plywood and applying a four step Polycoat coating. The entire staff was helpful and in constant communication with me. I had twelve different companies come out over three months for estimates and was completely satisfied with my choice and the end results from Pinnacle.
