How Long Does an Asphalt Shingle Roof Last in Georgia?

Page Roofing is the leading asphalt shingle roofing contractor and recently did a roof replacement job for a client in Grovetown, GA.

The customer’s roof was well beyond its lifespan. Several shingles were loose and a couple were gone entirely plus the roof was sagging. He found by a local advertisement and called for a quote.

Upon arrival, we knew right away his roof needed replaced from several of the signs mentioned above. He was concerned about the lifespan of an asphalt roof and asked us how long one should last in Georgia. We told him it depends on several factors, including the type of shingle used, the climate and maintenance, but quality asphalt shingles in Georgia should last about 20 to 30 years.

Asphalt shingle construction is the most important determining factor of how long a roof will last in Georgia. Quality is of utmost importance and we only use the highest quality materials at the best possible prices with expert workmanship.

Fluctuating Georgia hot and cold temperatures can wear on a home – especially when temperatures in the summer are hot and humid and below freezing in the winter. This can cause materials to break down quicker and reduce the lifespan by 5-10 years, which is why it is important to have quality materials.

Finally, a high quality asphalt shingle roof has a greater chance at lasting longer. Routine roof maintenance can catch early signs of a roofing issue. When roofing issues go unnoticed or unattended, they can escalate into a larger, more costly issue down the road.

He was happy to find a company that took the time to explain this to him and to put a beautiful new roof on his home. He said he will be having us do routine roof maintenance and inspections regularly to keep his beautiful new roof lasting.
