The Most Durable Roofing Materials

New metal roof

Roofs are not replaced often, but when they are it’s best to replace them with materials that will hold up under all conditions. Are you looking for roofing materials that will last a lifetime? Look no further than right here!

Steel is perfect enduring under extreme weather conditions and keeping the structure of your home covered and dry from moisture. This metal roof will also absorb sunlight to allow the house to remain cooler, saving the homeowner on monthly utility bills. A well-maintained steel roof can last anywhere from 50 to 100 years.

Aluminium is a perfect substitute if you don’t want to reinforce your roof for a heavier steel material. It will also absorb and reflect sunlight like steel to keep your home cooler during the warm weather months. Aluminium is offered in a wide variety of colors and styles for the homeowner who wants their house to stand out among their neighbors. This roofing material can also last over 50 years if it’s maintained regularly.

A homeowner that has an appreciation for classic architecture will usually opt for slate. These shingles are made from naturally occurring materials and they’ve been used for hundreds of years. Why do so many famous buildings utilize slate shingles? A properly installed and maintained slate roof can easily last over 100 years. The only downside to slate is its expensive price point, but many owners of slate roofs are willing to spend the money for its high quality.
