Answered

A metal roof is one of the longest-lasting and lowest-maintenance roofing choices available. You can expect it to last between 40 and 80 years. The actual number will vary depending on the climate you live in, which has a dramatic impact on the condition of your roof. Your level of maintenance also affects the longevity of your roofing surface — keeping it clean and free of debris extends its lifetime. Read our guide on how to maintain your roof for more tips.
