Hey, what's going on guys It's your man Mike "Doc" Rannigan with Doc's Roofing and Construction. We are here with another episode of frequently asked questions.
So a recent question that I just received was, how long will my new roof last? I'm gonna tell you what that is a loaded question. We put on a bunch of roofs about two-three years ago out in McKinney, Texas. Three years later, they get hit with a major hailstorm. We're already having to put new roofs on those homeowners and it's just been three years. So depending on where you live in the United States, depending on where you live in the state of Texas is going to be indicative of how long your roof will last.
Now, barring McKinney and some of those natural disasters that just seem to pop out of nowhere, typically a new roof can last you about 15 to 20 years. Here in Texas, our roofs are continuously being threatened by high temperatures. The heat out here 110 degree tamps 120-degree temperatures can really play a number on your roof. But if you use a reputable contract contractor will typically go out there once a year to do just simple roof maintenance and a check to make sure that the caulking hasn't begun to crack around your roof fence or your pipe boots or anywhere that can be susceptible to leaks and then overall will just give you a passing grade on that.
