Taking into account that the typical house has not been designed to support the weight of a tile roof, modern metal can be a good choice; possibly lasting a lifetime. Asphalt shingles are the next most durable material, and can sustain for decades. Even with proper care, cedar is unlikely to last you more than 20-30 years.
Maximizing the Life of Your Roof
Moisture, particularly here in the Pacific Northwest, is the culprit that can shorten the life of your asphalt or cedar shingles. If correctly installed, this is not necessarily a concern with metal roofing.
