How Long Does A Shingle Roof Last?

Due to the overwhelming majority of roofs in southern Louisiana being asphalt shingles, we will address their lifespan. Each asphalt shingle manufacturer produces different classes of shingles. Like most products available in the world, you have the budget-friendly option, the middle “bang for the buck” option delivering both efficiency and affordability and then your premium options.

But unlike products like cars that you can spend $100k+ on and you get all kinds of electrical issues down the road, the premium roof options truly are worth the money in the long run. Roof quality is not something you want to cut corners on unless absolutely necessary.

7-15 Years

18-30 Years

Up to 50 Years

3-tab shingle

If the budget only allows a 3-tab shingle, then there is no shame in installing a 3-tab roofing system. It can still get the job done, albeit you will not be withstanding hurricanes and hailstorms.

Architectural shingle

Most people opt for the architectural shingle because of the giant leap in performance and durability it offers over the 3-tab option.

Class-4 shingles

Finally, you have your class-4 shingles (usually in the designer category) that can withstand some of the most brutal hailstorms and ferocious hurricane speed winds up to 150mph.

3-Tab’s general lifespan is 12-15 years under normal conditions, and 7-10 years under extreme conditions.

Architectural shingles can last up to 30 under normal conditions, and 18-20 years under extreme conditions.

Under extreme conditions, they can last up to 30 years, and up to 50 years under optimal conditions.
