In this blog, we complete our list of the most durable roofing materials, ending with the most durable material there is. To find the other materials, visit our last blog.

  1. Sheet metal
  • Lifespan: 30-50 years
  • Metal makes a tough, long-lasting roof. However, you must ensure you have a company that specializes in this type of roof. It cannot be installed by the average roofing company.
  1. Wood shake shingles
  • Lifespan: 25-40 years
  • These are thick wood shingles – much thicker than your average wood shingles. They will last a long time and perform wonderfully in hail, but they are higher-maintenance. They will need to be cleaned in order to prevent rotting and warping.
  1. Spanish tiles
  • Lifespan: 100 years
  • You can go to old Californian missions and see original roofs that are still performing well. Practically impervious to all the elements, these tiles are incredibly durable. If maintenance ever is needed, care must be taken, because they can be broken when walked on.
  1. Slate tiles
  • Lifespan: 100+ years
  • Slate makes all other roofing materials look like paper. The only downside to this material is its weight – having all that rock over your head requires a special structure.
