If your roof is old, worn, or showing signs of damage, now is likely the time to invest in a roof replacement. However, before making this decision, a common question homeowners ask is how long a new roof should last. This question makes sense, as homeowners want to feel confident in their investment. The answer isn’t one size fits all. The longevity of a roof oftentimes depends on the material you select. Some materials are more durable than others, so prior to choosing a new roof, research the expected lifespan of each material.
Different Types of Roofing
When looking for a roofing system that is right for your home, consider the following options:
- GAF-certified asphalt shingles that are durable and available in eye-catching styles, designs, textures, and colors. These shingles are expected to last for 20 to 30 years.
- F-WAVE REVIA®synthetic shingles that are crafted in a wide selection of styles and colors. These synthetic shingles are made with a mix of commercial-grade polymers and are resistant to impact, wind, fire, fading, and cracking, and offer UV protection. This type of roofing can last for 40 to 50 years.
- Euroshield roofing is rubber-based and has a Class 4 impact rating—the highest possible rating for residential roofs. This enables the roofing system to withstand hail up to four inches in diameter. And due to its resistance against hail, this roofing system may even lower your home insurance rates. Euroshield roofing is expected to provide dependable protection for up to 50 years.
