How long do shingle roofs normally last in Florida?

One of the most accurate ways to tell how long a roof will last is by referring to the manufacturer’s warranty and comparing it to the date of installation. However, it’s likely you bought your current house with its existing roof, and there’s no visible marker indicating its warranty.


In that case, you must do your best estimating. Most roofing shingles come with a 20-year warranty, and that’s a good rule of thumb to follow when estimating the life of your roof. However, some come with a 30-year warranty; and of course, the kind of environment you live in plays a huge role in your roof’s lifespan as well, so you’ll want to take that into consideration, too.
