Nothing in this world truly lasts forever, not even your roof! While this may not come as a surprise, it is important you are aware of how long your home’s roof is expected to last. Although the average life expectancy of a roof is between 20 and 25 years, there are several factors that affect how long your roof will last before needing to be replaced:
• The quality of the materials used to form your roof
• What weather conditions your roof is exposed to
• How often you perform maintenance on your roof
• How well your roof was initially installed
If you aren’t sure whether you should repair or replace your roof, you should consider these factors to determine whether fixing the issue will add significant time to your roof’s lifespan or if it is best to invest in a new roof.
