How often should a roof be replaced?

There are many factors that affect the average lifespan of roofs, tiles and shingles. The type of material used, the climate and weather conditions, signs of wear and maintenance required are all important considerations for homeowners.

Different roofing materials have different longevity levels.

Based on the roof material used, here is the recommended replacement schedule:

  • Composition Shingles: 12-20 Years
  • Asphalt Shingles: 15-30 Years
  • Wood Shingles: 20-25 Years
  • Rubber roofs: Lasts 30-50 years
  • Metal roofs: 50-75 Years

You will find that the replacement time for these materials can vary depending on where you live. The materials can wear quicker in extreme winters or humid areas. It is a good idea to inspect the roof after a storm or strong wind. Protecting your home and belongings is crucial. Make sure you keep it in good shape.

Over time, roofs become less efficient. You should inspect your roof immediately if you see anything unusual. You might be able to repair your roof rather than replacing it completely if you catch it early enough.
