How long does a clay tile roof last?

Changed insurance company and had an inspector come out and ask how old the roof was. Said 20 years. I know asphalt shingles last 20-30 years, slate over 75 years. How long do Florida clay tile roofs last on average?

I would say longer than your life. In your case, probably until the next hurricane comes along to blow them off. Terracotta roof tiles do last a long time. That's not to say you won't need to do maintenance while you have it.
