Durability

A factor that affects the life-cycle performance of a material or assembly. All other factors being equal, the more durable item is environmentally preferable, because it means less frequent replacement. However, durability is rendered moot as a factor if the material is replaced for aesthetic reasons prior to it actually wearing out.

durability

1. The ability of a material, component, assembly, or building to resist weathering action, chemical attack, abrasion, and other conditions of service.
2. The resistance of a particular species of wood to decay.
