Slate is a wonderful material. Slate provides a longevity that most other roof materials cannot compete with. A lifespan of 80-100 years is typical for slate roofing, although this can last longer if maintained well after installation.
In general, a cared for and well-maintained tile roof can last 50 years, although there are buildings in Europe whose tile roofs have lasted for centuries. Tile roofs exceed all other types of roofing materials for longevity.
Leaks in the Roof – This is the most common sign that indicates a problem with your roof system. Leaks usually occur after heavy snowfall or rains. Damage to the Paint – Peeling or blistering of paint also indicates that you may have roof problems. It is often due to poor attic ventilation.
The average life expectancy for a roof repair boils down to the materials used. Composite and asphalt shingles, for example, are often expected to last for 20 years. Metal can last as long as 80 years, while slate may survive for more than a century.
