What roofing material lasts the longest?

The hope was that the severe thunderstorm would have missed your location to the north. However, like usual the mighty weatherman couldn’t predict the future. Another painful thought comes to your mind about something a friend told you a year back.  You race into the garage and pull out a ladder and hurry up onto your roof.
