New addition, redo complete roof?


I'm building a garage adjacent to my house with connecting roof planes on 2 sections and i'm wondering if it's necessary to replace the shingles on the existing roof. These were replaced 8 years ago and are still in very good condition.

As long as you can buy shingles that closely match the existing ones - there is no reason to replace an 8 year old roof. I'm in the same situation - adding a new bedroom addition and the old roof is 15 yrs old.... but in decent shape. Got lucky and found the same color shingles - covered the addition - and when looking at it from the yard - can't tell the difference between old and new.....
