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. Minor maintenance may be a short-term bother, but it is much less of a problem than repairing major roofing issues or replacing the entire roofing system.
A variety of factors determines the lifespan of your roof. Some of which include exposure to environmental conditions, the quality of your roofing materials, its installation accuracy, etc. Living in New Jersey means that your roof is regularly exposed to things such as hurricanes, tropical storms, significant snowfalls, 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 which roofs last the longest in New Jersey and thus be easier on your pockets.
Asphalt Shingle Roofing
Asphalt shingle roofing is one of the most common roofing materials in New Jersey. It is a popular option because it is relatively cheap and easy to install. However, their lifespan can be anywhere between 10-30 years. Natural phenomena like hurricanes and tropical storms pack quite a punch. Due to the intense wind speeds of these weather conditions, asphalt shingle rooftops are usually the first to suffer significant damage when these storms make landfall.
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. Metal roofing systems are renowned for being one of the most durable rooftops with the highest weather resistance. This makes it the perfect rooftop for homes in the New Jersey area as it’s capable of surviving storms, it sheds rain and snow very quickly, and it cools your home during those summer heatwaves.
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. In places like New Jersey, which experiences intense wind speeds, it’s important that homeowners hire roofers with tile installation experience because you don’t want heavy tiles being flung into the air as soon as some wind passes by your house.
