So according to the roof contractor, firstly, you must replace the roof if it’s leaking or damaged. 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.
In case your roof is penetrated, due to hill hit or blistering it is going to decrease the lifespan of your roof. Poor ventilation can also be the reason behind penetration. Due to the penetrations water gets down in the decking of the roofing system.
