Shingles are a type of roof covering that consist of overlapping layers. To protect the materials underneath, the shingles are typically installed from the bottom up in an overlapping fashion with the top being capped by a specialized type of shingle.
While the lifespan of shingles depends on a lot of factors, most shingles are rated at a lifetime of 20 to 50 years. Basically the protective oils in shingles will soften when exposed to heat, Arizona sun much, and will gradually be washed away over time by rain. The areas of the roof that are most prone to this erosion are eaves and roof joint areas where the rain is channeled when running down the roof. Once the oils have washed out of the shingles, the shingles will either shrink or rot depending on type. When this process takes place, the nails that hold the shingles to the roof will be exposed, creating areas prone to water leakage. On many occasions the water will erode and rot out the materials underneath the shingles, AKA your home, with out any signs of leakage in the home. And of course, when the leak is significant you will see the water damage on ceilings and walls inside your home. This is why its vital to have your roof checked regularly and thoroughly by a licensed roofing contractor.
