How long do tile roofs last?

Date : 20 December, 2020

Several different factors come into play when assessing the lifespan of roof tiles.

  • Atmospheric conditions
  • Incorrect accessing to the roof (where operatives walk on the tiles)
  • Pressure washing
  • Incorrect installation

You can expect any well-tiled roof to last up to around 60 years. This, of course, depends on how well-maintained it is. This longevity is a primary advantage of tiled roofing and, depending on the local area's immediate environment; a tiled roof can last beyond the expected 50-60 year average.

While weather conditions play a big part in testing the durability of roofing tiles, the underlay will need replacing every 30-40 years to maintain the roof system's integrity. It is also essential to keep an eye on any small repairs that are required. This ensures any issues are dealt with quickly, so they do not develop into larger problems.
