Norfolk residents are very lucky to have one of the finest climates in the country. What with our humid subtropical climate, which typically has moderate seasonal changes, we can enjoy warm summers, pleasant falls, mild winters, and beautiful spring days.
However, we occasionally experience heavy rains, especially during late summers, and strong winds during thunderstorms. Furthermore, because of our proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, hurricanes sometimes make landfall in the area. The highest-risk period is mid-August to the end of September.
Even if we have one of the mildest weathers in the country, it is still important to ensure your roof is in top shape. This is so that when harsh weather conditions do occur, you, your family, and your valuables will be well prepared and well protected against outside elements.
Also, depending on the type of roof you have, the condition of your roof can be determined by its age. If you have an asphalt shingle roof, you can expect it to last for 15 to 20 years. Wood shingles or shakes are known to last between 10 and 40 years. Clay or concrete tiles have a life span of over 20 years. Metal roofs can last between 15 and 40+ years. Last but not least, slate can last well over 100 years! Keep in mind that these are merely averages and that weather conditions and how you maintain your roof play big roles in its longevity.
