How long should a roof last in Texas?

Texas is famous for its hot and sometimes humid climate. As most roofs in the U.S. are made for different weather conditions, Houston roofing has to be designed explicitly for hotter climatic conditions. Before looking at how long a roof should last, you must evaluate the life expectancy of different roofing materials and conditions to consider.

Roofing Materials Expectancy

There is no definite roof life expectancy, and the lifespan of your roof greatly depends on the roofing material you choose. Since every roofing material has its distinct properties, each one has its life expectancy.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are the most common and widely manufactured roofing materials available in Texas. Made up of cement fibers and organic materials, they are very durable, offering protection from rain, wind, and UV rays. The underside of asphalt shingles is that they last 15-20 years.

Seam Metal Roofs

Seam metal roofs are best known for their well-roundedness and versatility. Similar to asphalt shingles, seam metal roofs are resistant to heavy rain and high winds. Metal roofs are also popular because of their modern look and have a life expectancy of up to 50 years. Its only shortcoming is that it can only be used in low-pitched roofing.

Slate Tile Roofs

Today, the most durable roofing materials in the market are stone tile roofs as they have a lifespan of up to 100 years. Slate tile roofing is suitable for houses that are in the way of heavy rainfall, high winds, and hailstorms. The disadvantage of slate tile roofing is that it is costly and heavy. Additionally, slate tile roofs are hard to find.
