How Long Does A Shingle Roof Last?

May 14, 2021Blog, Shingle Roofing

Your home is likely one of your largest financial investments, so you want its roof to remain leak-free for as long as possible. While roofing materials vary, one of the most common materials used for residential roofing in the United States is asphalt roof shingles. So, how long does a shingle roof last?

 

In general, an asphalt shingle roof will have a life expectancy of 15-30 years. Wood shaker shingle roofs can also last up to 30 years. There are many choices, however. The brand you choose, and how they are installed, can impact the lifespan of your roof.

 

We are a certified installer for CertainTeed products, and we proudly offer other top brands including GAF and Owens Corning. We offer a 10-year workmanship warranty and a 50-year manufacturer’s warranty on residential roof installations.

 

HOW MUCH WILL A SHINGLE ROOF REPLACEMENT COST?

Asphalt shingles will be the most economical choice. An asphalt shingle roof replacement will cost $4-$8 per square foot. The size of your roof, its existing condition, your location, and the type and brand of shingle will impact the cost of your roof replacement. This online roofing calculator may give you a rough estimate, but we encourage you to contact us to get a better idea since we can offer a roof estimate that’s more localized and better suits your needs.

 

We offer affordable roofing for homes in Lancaster, Harrisburg, Chester, Berks, and nearby areas. River Run Roofing can help finance up to $100,000 toward your residential roofing project through our partnership with Enhancify.

 

When evaluating the cost and affordability of replacing a shingle roof, consider that replacing your roof may increase the resale value of your home!

 

CAN YOU REPAIR PATCHES OF SHINGLE ON MY ROOF?

We can repair cracked, loose, and damaged shingles and replace any that have gone missing.

 

Our team of professional roofing contractors can also repair damage caused by improperly installed skylights and/or damaged flashing. We also offer emergency roof repair, 24-hours, in northern Delaware, southeastern Pennsylvania, and northeastern Maryland.

 

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF SHINGLES?

We install Certainteed Landmark, GAF, and TAMKO asphalt shingles. These are all quality, reliable brands. Learn more about our Roof Shingle Types.

 

Certainteed shingles can be installed to mimic a wood shaker roof (at far less the cost!) and offer warranties on algae-resistance, fire-resistance, and some even offer solar reflectivity.

 

GAF is one of the most innovative companies when it comes to asphalt shingles. It recently released an asphalt shingle product containing recycled waste!

 

TAMKO is known for having some of the most unique colors on the market. Also, 15% of the company’s workforce are veterans and first-responders and TAMKO provides financial and product donations to wounded servicemembers and the nonprofits that support them.
