Shingle warranties can be very tricky. Many years ago, a shingle manufacturer (we won’t mention the name) decided they wanted to compete with metal roofs. When it comes to roofing, metal roofs can be costly but last a very long time. Your typical metal roof warranty is about 50 years. So, this caused asphalt shingle manufacturers to want to stay in business and to be able to compete. So, the asphalt shingle manufacturers started offering "lifetime" or "limited lifetime". Now, let’s be real, nothing lasts a lifetime. A reasonable expectation for a roof is 15-25 years. Some may last longer but 15-25 years is a reasonable expectation. At Apex Roofing and Construction, we educate our clients as to what's a reasonable lifespan for a roof. We prepared this video to go over shingle warranties for you. Always read the fine print of your shingle warranty.
