According to a 1996 study by Simpson Gumpertz, the life expectancy of most popular roof systems is between 11 and 14 years. The chart below shows various popular roofing systems and the impact of roof restoration vs. tearing off and replacing the roof.
Roof restoration can increase the service life to your roof 5-15 years longer than a tear off/roof replacement. Further, you can continue to do restorations on sound roofs to further extend the life of the roof. Roof restoration provides a sustainable, easy to maintain roofing membrane without the time, cost, disruption, or safety concerns of tearing off an existing roof and replacing it.
