Useful Life

Just curious if anyone had a source or reference guide they used when determining the useful life of commercial real estate properties/systems/roofs/etc.
Not only to use when calculating depreciation, but also when determining the timing on upgrades.

Check out RS Means Facilities Maintenance & Repair Cost Data. It might be exactly what you are seeking.
