Hello! I spoke with a friend of mine who is in the roofing business and here is what I found out for you.

Metal Roofs have an average life of 20 to 25 years in Houston. As Class A material, they are fire and impact resistant, and can handle strong winds of 100 - 110 mph. They can also be re-coated to add an additional 10 years to their life.

Shingle Roofs have an average life of 10 - 15 years in Houston (Unfortunately, even "30 Year" roofing typically won't reach the full 30 years due to Houston's weather). They are less durable than metal roofs, only handling winds up to 80 mph.

NOTE: Though metal roofs typically have a longer lifespan than shingles, cosmetic blemishes such as fading , nicks, and dents will appear on the surface over time.

Before I started my company, Biosweep of West Houston, I was a property adjuster for 15 years. I have inspected every type of roof imaginable and can't even count how many roofs I've inspected. In my experience, a 30 year dimensional shingle will last on average anywhere from 12-18 yrs depending on sun exposure (heat) and roof ventilation. It is important to ventilate the attic area. A roof with poor ventilation after several years will start to form "blisters" on the roof surface and eventually they pop like a blister. This will cause your roof to deteriorate faster. Also, the roofing industry uses "30 years" as a way to market the shingle not meant to last for 30 years.

As for metal roofs, I would make sure when installed they are installing the screws in the correct location, and they are not over or under driven. Either way will cause a leak. As for maintenance, main issue goes back to the screws. After the initial 5 years, I would inspect the screws every few years to make sure they are flush with the metal roof.

The durability of tiles is greatly influenced by the thickness of the steel sheets and the protective zinc coating. If the metal is very thin, then the danger is great that it is deformed, and also quickly rusts through and through at the slightest violation of the layers of protection. The duration of service varies from 15 to 60 years. The average service life of a metal tile coating is 20 to 40 years. Of all the coatings, the most durable (60-70 years) is a product coated with plastisol. Second in strength (30-40 years) are polyurethane. Products with other types of coatings have an average service life of 15-20, 30 years, warranty periods vary from a year to 10 years.
