Roofs typically last 25-50 years, but the lifetime of your roof can be affected by a number of things such as the quality of the roof material, underlayment, and ventilation.

  • Quality of the roof material: Some roof materials are stronger than others which makes them more withstandable in storms and allows them to last longer than lower-quality materials. 
  • Underlayment: The underlayment of a roof is the waterproof protection for your home if the outer layer of your roof is damaged. Underlayment also helps to prevent rotting and mold. 
  • Ventilation: Making sure your roof has proper ventilation is extremely important because proper ventilation helps to prevent your roof from cracking from pressure. Improper ventilation can lead to many issues that could be costly.
