How Long Do 50-Year Shingles Actually Last?

A big misconception about 50-year shingles is that once installed they will last you for at least 50 years without any maintenance or inspections from your local roofers.

The truth is, once installed, you can expect your roofing system to last anywhere from 30 to 40 years or more as long as they are regularly inspected by a professional, especially after intense storms such as a hurricane or severe hail or snowstorm.

Are 50-Year Shingles Worth The Money?

If you plan on living in your home for many years, specifically 5 or 6 decades, then 50-year shingles may be the best option for you.

However, the only way to understand the best roofing material for your home is to speak directly with your local Northern Virginia roofing company about their extensive options taking in consideration your individual needs.

Other factors that can impact your shingles include the climate you live in and if storms are a frequent occurrence.

When deciding if shingles are worth the money, consider warranty packages and repair costs to your roof to determine if they are worth the investment.
