How Often Should You Replace  Your Roof?

It can be difficult to know when it is time to replace your roof.

Roof replacement depends on many factors, such as weather, how well you maintain it, and the severity of the damage. Keep clicking to learn  more about the longevity of certain roofing materials. 

01. Asphalt Shingles

There are two types of asphalt shingles (3-tab asphalt and architectural).  The 3-tab asphalt can last from 15 to 20 years, while the latter can last 10 years longer than the former.


02. Metal Roofing

Good durability and many options to choose from. For example, steel and aluminum can last up to 50 years,  and zinc and copper can last up to  100 years.


03. Concrete  Tile Roofing

An extremely durable roofing due to heavy and resilient tiles,  giving extra reinforcement for your home.  Concrete tile roofing can last up to  50 or even 100 years.


04. Wood Shingles

Not the most durable options out there due to the material being susceptible to fire and mold.  Therefore, regular maintenance is required for this particular type. With good upkeep, wood shingles can last from 25 to 30 years.


05. Slate Roofing

A premium roof system is known to be the most durable type you can find on the market. However, due to that reason, the price is expensive. A slate roof can last up to 100 years.
