Roofing Contractor Discusses Typical Lifespans of New Roofs, Covington, Kentucky

Whether you’re replacing your roof or building a new one from scratch, you want your investment to last. The expert roofing contractors at Northern Kentucky Roofing in Florence explain that life expectancy primarily depends on the materials and the quality of installation. 

Below, they share their insight into the average number of years different materials will last:


Choosing metal for your home can spare you re-roofing expenses for up to 50 years, and can last even longer if maintained properly. In fact, it’s not uncommon for those comprising premium copper components to serve homeowners for 100 or more years. A metal roof’s ability to withstand long-term damage and weathering makes it a worthy investment for homeowners.


Roofing-ContractorArguably the most popular choice among residential clients, the lifespan of an asphalt roof depends on the quality and thickness of the shingles used. In general, they’re comparatively cost-effective and can serve you well for up to 30 years. Reinforced ones stand out with their durable construction and resistance to harsh weather conditions.


Rubber is an ideal and affordable choice for homes with flat or low-sloped tops. They’re comprised of a single-ply layer of synthetic Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) that ensures proper insulation and protection for your home. A coating of waterproof rubber membrane safeguards your roof from high moisture levels and lends it greater durability. Best-suited for moderate climates, a rubber option can last up to 30 years with routine upkeep services by professional roofing contractors.
