Generally speaking if a roof is less than 7-8 years old, repair may be the best course of action. The roofing materials may even be under a pro-rated warranty. For roofs in excess of 10-12 years and older, it’s more likely that the roof will need replacement. The reasoning behind this is, that after 10-12 years the shingles become used to their placement and shape and begin to lose their elasticity (this of course does not apply to slate, tile, and metal roofs). A thorough inspection will allow problem to be identified. Specific problems like leaking skylights, vent damage, and fautly chimney flanges can be more simple to address as compared to shingle damage in a large area. Common symptoms like leaks and pest infestations will not only continue to affect the roof itself, but begin to have adverse effects on structual materials within your attic.
