What Roofing Material Lasts the Longest?

No matter what roofing you decide on, you will likely find the pros and cons of it along the way. Some of the materials that last the longest are concrete, clay, or slate tiles. These materials’ lifespans have outlived products like wood or fabricated roofing materials like asphalt and metal. Even though these materials also have a fair lifespan, they are not nearly as hardy and their strength and durability are what keep them together so well. The longest-lasting roofing products are very durable and are going to be a bit more pricey.
When purchasing a new roof, there are several factors you need to take into consideration, such as:

  • Your climate and weather conditions
  • The structure of your building or home
  • Your routine of roofing maintenance
  • The grade of the roofing pieces you buy
