How Often Do You Need To Replace Your Roof? With Alan Monzon

Video Transcription

“In Arizona, how often do you need to replace your roof? How long is it good for?

Sarlo Residence Roof ReplacedAlan Monzon, Arizona Roof Rescue: Usually the shingle roofs, they should last at least… If you got a 30-year shingle, it’s a 30-year dimensional, or a 25-year shingles, usually the sun, it will shorten the life of the roof by five years. So if you got a 30-year shingle, you got to replace them every 25 years. Or if you got a tiled roof, the tiled roof… The average of the tile roof it’s between 18 and 20 years, but if you do maintenance the roof can last you at least about 25 to 30 years. When I’m talking maintenance, I’m talking about doing an inspection of all the valleys, all the roof vents, all the openings, and of course replace any damaged or broken tiles. But that’s gonna be the life of your roof right there. But in Arizona, the sun, it would deteriorate the underlayment. It would dry it out and average it’s about 20 years. Every 20 years you got to remove the tiles or put a new underlayment. The life of the tile, it should be between 75 and 100 years, a regular concrete tile.”
