I just see a lot of replacement going on.
I know a shingle roof normally has a 25 year lifespan and a tile roof should be good for 35-40 years. I hope.
have you had a roofing inspection?

Swing hard, look up

Yes, it was inspected last year after a leak was found in one area where a section of the roof meets a stucco sidewall. This repair was make and the roofing contractor looked at the rest of the roof. Although he didn't like how the ridge vents were mated with the tile he indicated he wouldn't make any changes since it has not posed a problem over time. He also walked the entire roof and did some tile "pointing" in a few areas. He said there is no reason to believe this roof wouldn't last at least another five to eight years.

As I'm posting this we are in the middle of tropical storm Andrea (?) and it's pouring and has been since the wee hours of the morning. The repaired area seems to be holding up pretty good.
