San Antonio Roof Repair Company Rhino Tuff Roofing owner Bret Hannah discusses the lifespan of your roof.
Are you in the market for a new house or thinking of upgrading one you already own? As a the homeowner it is important to be acclimated with one of the most critical barriers protecting you and your home: your roof.
Your roof has the responsibility of protecting your home from extreme elemental damage. Rain, hail, snow, and wind can wreak havoc on your home depending on the quality of its roof. Never make the mistake of overlooking quality materials for your roof. The protection provided for your home is directly dependent upon materials used in construction.
Here is a quick breakdown of what to expect based upon your shingle of choice:
1) Wooden roofs typically last around 15 to 20 years depending on the quality of the installation.
2) Asphalt roofs last about 20 to 30 years.
3) Metal roofs can last up to 50 years.
4) Slate roofs may last 60+ years depending on the quality of installation.
5) Ceramic tile roofs can last nearly 100 years under optimal conditions.
To ensure the longest possible lifespan of your roof make sure that you regularly inspect it once or twice a year. Check for cracks or worn granules depending on the type of roof you have installed. Your roof will be most prone to damage after the hot summer or cold winter, so consider an inspection near September or April.
Regular maintenance on your roof will help extend its lifespan as much as possible saving you money in the long term. Choosing quality materials will also play an important factor in getting the most out of your investment.
