"I think this roof is about 14 years old...roughly how long should it last (regular asphalt shingled roof)?"

I have used cheap discount 15 year shingles when that was what I could afford. They lasted 15 years. I have seen the new 45 year architectural shingles that heve been on for 20 years and they look good as new. There are new steel epoxy coated shingles that shed snow like a regular metal roof. They look nice, but their life is still a question since they have less than five years in use here.
