technical question about quality and longevity of coax cables

I was up in my attic recently and was reminded about the extreme heat up there during the summer months. That said, it made me think about something. Giving the fact that attics can sometimes reach 150 degrees during the summer, does this impact the lifetime of coax cables in the attic?

I had my home pre-wired a couple of years ago when it was built for antenna wiring from my rooms up to the attic for my antenna. I simply grabbed the available standard RG6 cables that I found, at the time, from Lowe's and some from Home Depot - never thinking about such things as quad shield cabling. I don't recall brands - but most of it was in long spools so that it could be cut accordingly for each room as needed.
