Quality of roof material- “Economy” roof materials have a shorter life.

Multiple-layer roof – A roof installed over an existing roof will have a shorter life.

Attic ventilation – An unventilated or poorly ventilated attic reduces roof lifespan.

Trees near roof – Tree branches rubbing on a roof or the acidity from the accumulation of leaf debris on a roof shortens its life.

Harsh climate – Severe weather, both harsh winters, and hot summers, along with big temperature swings within a 24-hour period, also shorten lifespan because of the expansion and contraction of roof materials.
