The lifespan of a roof depends on several factors:
- Shingle thickness
- Climate and weather conditions
- Proper installation
Traditional asphalt shingle roofs typically last between 12 and 20 years, while slate, tile, and copper roofs may last upwards of 50. Thanks to their durability, metal roofs may enjoy life spans of 40 to 70 years. In regions that experience severe weather conditions such as high winds, snow, and significant rainfall, roofs generally have shorter life expectancies.
