The average longevity of a roof depends on several factors, including roof design and materials, weather conditions and whether or not the homeowner keeps up with roofing inspections and repairs.
Materials play a key role in a roof’s lifespan. Laminated shingles last up to 15 years, while roofs made of torchdown, asphalt and composite materials tend to last 20 years after installation. Fiber cement roofs have an average lifespan of 25 years, slate roofs can last as long as 50 years, and roofs made of copper, clay and concrete materials can last up to 100 years. Underlayment system and battens do not last as long as roofs and need to be replaced more frequently.
