Frequently asked questions

How long does a roof typically last?

A roof’s lifespan depends on various factors, including the type of material used, climate conditions, maintenance, and installation quality. On average, asphalt shingles last about 20 to 30 years, while metal roofs can last 40 to 70 years. Tile, wood, and slate roofs have longer lifespans, ranging from 50 to 100 years or more. If you have concerns, contact Diamond Roofing for a complete roof inspection. 

How do I know if my roof needs replaced?

There are several signs that indicate your roof may need to be replaced. Look for missing or damaged shingles, curling or buckling shingles, excessive granule loss, water stains on the ceiling, or visible signs of sagging. Additionally, if your roof is more than 20 years old, it may be approaching the end of its lifespan and should be inspected by a professional roofing contractor.
