You will learn the difference between when to actually replace a roof and when you want it to be replaced.
First of all you need to look at the shingles, if the shingle system of your roof is pretty old (like 15 to 20 years), you need to either improve its condition or get a new one. If your roof is penetrated, because of hill hit or blistering, it is going to decrease the lifespan of your roof. It also occurs because of poor ventilation. Because of the penetrations water gets down in the decking of the roofing system.
Another factor is the brittleness of the shingles, when you lift up an old shingle while installing a boot, it becomes brittle. Brittle shingles are easily broken even by the hailstones. Next important thing is the moss; a layer of algae usually grows on your roofs. If you don’t clean it, your roof will start to damage.
