Asphalt shingles are one of the most used shingles in America, largely in part to their low installation and replacement costs. Asphalt roof shingles last between 15 to 20 years, but their life expectancy largely depends upon the climate in which they are installed.
Asphalt shingles tend to last longer in cooler climates compared to hotter ones. Most need to be replaced every 2 decades, so if you are looking for them to last longer, then you should look at a sturdier variety of shingles.
