How Long Can Property Owners Expect a Roof to Last?
The average lifespan of a roof can be from 20 to 50 years, but it depends on the installation's material and quality. Three primary factors affect the life expectancy of a roof in Texas, including:
- Sun exposure
- Other weather
- Type of roofing material
The UV radiation and heat in Texas influence how fast roofing materials break down. Extreme weather conditions also damage the roof, including Texas winds, blizzards, and heavy rainfall.
Some materials typically deteriorate faster. For example, a metal roof can last up to 70 years longer in Texas than regular asphalt shingles.
Roof Replacement vs. Roof Repair
When your roof is damaged, you need an expert roofing contractor to inspect your roof for:
- surface condition
- structural damage
If your roof is over 15 years old, we recommend a total roof replacement. Many homeowner insurance policies require replacement every 15 years.
Additionally, we want to ensure that no matter the material, the roof’s condition is still water-repellent and doesn’t allow excess drafts into your home or business. If the plywood or other coverings are in a high state of disrepair, we may recommend a total replacement.
