We know that installing a new roof can bite a large chunk out of your savings, and it is a significant investment, but it is also something that you wouldn’t want to do too often. Most roofing systems can last up to 30-40 years, sometimes even longer when properly cared for and maintained.
The lifespan of your roof is determined by environmental conditions, frequent exposure to harsh natural elements, and the quality of your roofing system’s installation. Living in Bradenton means that your roof is regularly exposed to things such as stormy weather conditions, frequent rainfall, tornadoes, and more. These environmental conditions can significantly impact the lifespan of your rooftop and lead to its accelerated degradation.
Let’s take a look at how long your roof type typically lasts in Bradenton:
Asphalt Shingle Roofing
Asphalt shingle roofing is probably one of the most common roofing materials in the Bradenton area. It is a popular roofing option due to it being relatively cheap and easy to install. However, their lifespan can be anywhere between 10-30 years. In an area like Bradenton, that experiences frequent storms and tornadoes, your asphalt rooftop may need to be replaced every time a significant storm passes.
Metal roofing is believed to be the most environmentally friendly roofing material available. The metal roofing is often made from 100% recycled materials. Not only is the roof eco-friendly, but it is also cost-effective as it has a lifespan of 30-50 years, and with proper maintenance, you can stretch this lifespan to nearly 70 years. Most metal rooftops can withstand wind speeds of up to 140mph; therefore, if you’re lucky, your metal rooftop will survive the stormy weather frequenting the Bradenton area.
Tile roofing can add a pleasant, tailored aesthetic to your home. The tiles are made from terracotta clay, ceramics, or concrete. When properly maintained, your tile roof can last you about 100 years. However, homeowners with tile roofs need to be on the lookout for cracking tiles, especially in areas with sweltering climates. Tile roofs also do not do well with a lot of foot traffic. For your tile rooftop to survive harsh weather conditions, they need to be installed correctly by a tile roofing specialist. If not, you’ll have flying roof tiles the moment a storm comes into town.
