New Roof Replacement MaterialsThere are many roofing materials that can be used in replacing a roof and each has a different lifespan. It is important to know the materials used for your roof so that you have an idea of how long those materials normally last.
Asphalt Roof Shingles: Asphalt shingles are a popular option due to their low costs, resiliency, and easy installation. More than 75% of U.S. homes use asphalt shingles on the roof. While they can be cheap, they tend to have a shorter lifespan (15-30 years) than many other roofing materials available today.
Clay or Concrete Tiles: In order to install clay tiles, a home will need to have additional roof framing as they are very heavy. Clay and concrete tiles are fire resistant and come in a variety of colors, some of which have the ability to reflect the sun, resulting in lower energy costs. Clay and concrete tiles have a lifespan of 50 years or more.
Metal Roofs: Metal shingles are becoming a popular option for homeowners as they often utilize a high percentage of recycled materials and are very durable. They are also much lighter than many other roofing materials and are resistant to inclement weather. Metal shingles have a lifespan of 50 years or more.
