What Roofing Materials Last the Longest?

Choosing a new roof for your home can be challenging especially since there is a wide variety of roofing materials on the market.  You need to consider which roofing materials can withstand the New England weather. In the winter, we deal with blizzards, cold rain, and sleet.

It’s quite obvious that the longest-lasting materials are typically the most-sturdy. Natural roofing materials such as wood shingles are typically outperformed by concrete and slate tiles. Aluminum and asphalt roofing have an extremely long lifespan so they are definitely another material to look into.

Below is a look at the most popular and reliable roofing materials:

  • Asphalt Shingles: This type of shingle is by far the most economical and It has a seamless installation process. You also have the luxury of choosing from a variety of colors and it’s inexpensive.
  • Metal Roofing: Metal roofs hold up wonderfully to extreme weather conditions and you can choose from aluminum, copper zinc or stainless steel.
  • Wood Shingles: These are absolutely breathtaking as they create a rustic or country feel, making the home look very storybook-esque.
  • Slate & Clay: This specific type of roofing creates an elegant appeal, completely reinventing the exterior of any home. Choose from black, green, grey, red or purple!
