I am buying and renovating 75 year house with a Ludowici tile roof. Some "advisors" say replace the roof. (They sale roofs). Others say tile roofs should outlast the house. There is obvious leaking in the front walls of the house.
How do I know who to believe? Are there obvious signs that tile needs to be replaced.

Is the tile spalling (flaking apart), cracking, splitting or otherwise showing signs of deterioration and failing? If not, then the roof can and should be repaired and/or restored, not replaced. You will probably have to replace the flashings, or some of them. The leaking on the front walls can be coming fram a variety of sources - possibly broken tiles or old, improper repairs. You need to have a close look at it and find out what the problem is.
