• Asphalt shingle

    Asphalt shingles are a type of roof shingle that uses asphalt for waterproofing. They are one of the most widely used roofing covers in North America because they have a relatively inexpensive up-front cost and are fairly simple to install.

    Typical lifespan: 15-20 years

  • Metal Roofs

    Metal is a very common type of roof. There are a variety of metal roofing systems available. This varies from zinc to steel, copper, aluminum, and tin.

    Typical lifespan: 20-40 years

  • Wood Shingle and Shake Roofing

    The wood or shake shingle is the inspiration for the modern day asphalt shingles. Similar to the asphalt shingle, the wood shake overlaps each other making the roof or siding weather proof. If you have a wood roof on your home, keep in mind, it will need regular attention if you want it to last for any decent length of time.

    Typical lifespan: 20-30 years (with proper maintenance)

  • Tile Roofing

    Tile roofing is an extremely durable material. These roofs can last a very long time without requiring any major upkeep. 

    Typical lifespan: 50 years

  • Slate Roofing

    A high quality slate roof that is properly installed can last 100 years. Extending the lifespan of both tile and slate roofs is not really an issue once they are installed, but choosing a high quality material initially is a must if you want peak performance and longevity. 

    Typical lifespan: 100 years
