The Life expectancy of a roof varies between different roof materials.
This depends on the type of material used on the roof and other factors, such as climate, geographical location (do you live near saltwater)? and various other factors. It’s important to note that these factors will lessen the lifespan of your roof greatly.
Asphalt Shingles, 3-tab – 15 to 18 years
Asphalt Shingles, Architectural – 24 to 30 years
EPDM (rubber) – 10 to 16 years.
Built-Up or Modified Bitumen – 10 to 16 years
Galvalume (metal) – 30 to 45 years
Tile – 35 to 50 years
It is important to remember that the amount of routine maintenance and the quality of the roofing products you purchase play crucial roles in determining life expectancy.
Life expectancy in a large part is related to the cost and style of roofing materials. Before choosing a type of new roof, consider how much you want to pay, what kinds of roofing products are used in the neighborhood surrounding your home, and how long you expect to be in your home.
You also might want to consult with a roofing contractor about which materials are the best fit for your geographical region in order to determine how long the roof will last.
