How Long Will Your Roof Last?

The lifespan of your roof depends greatly on the material it is made from. Repairing or replacing a roof can be a huge investment. When choosing a new roof, you may want to consider your budget, what length of time you expect the roof to last, and how long you are planning to stay in the house. Here is a list of common roofing materials and the lifespan of each:

  • Asphalt shingles (3-tab) – 15 to 18 years
  • Asphalt shingles (Architectural) – 24 to 30 years
  • Metal – 30 to 45 years
  • Concrete Tile - 35 to 50 years
  • Built-Up or Modified Bitumen - 10 to 16 years
  • Rubber - 10 to 16 years

These life spans are based on "typical" conditions. There are, of course, situations in which your roof's lifespan may be increased or decreased. A lot of people use certain materials based on the aesthetic appeal; however, that may not be the best material for your particular roof.

Some of the conditions that may affect lifespan include:

  • The colour of the roof - Dark roofs absorb more heat, which compromises materials
  • The angle of the roof slope - Higher pitch roofs tend to last longer
  • Orientation of roof surface - A roof that faces South tends to get more sunlight and may ultimately cause it to have a shorter lifespan
  • A multiple-layer roof - Roofs installed over an existing roof may deteriorate more quickly and therefore have a shorter life
  • Quality of roofing material - Cheaper materials will obviously not last as long
  • Installation - Improper or sloppy installation shortens lifespan
  • Attic ventilation - Improperly ventilated or no ventilation reduces lifespan
  • Large trees near roof - Branches brushing up against the roof or accumulation of leaves on the roof reduces lifespan
  • Harsh climates - Severe weather, both hot and cold, or extreme temperature swings within a short period of time (within 24 hrs) shorten lifespan due to materials expanding and contracting
