Time to replace aluminum drip edge?

I have a 17 years old house. There was a severe hail in my area and I have to replace my old roof. My roofer told me there is really no need to replace drip edge unless I replace gutter at the same time. He shows my gutter to me. It seems my drip edge is in good shape (to my untrained eye). Also, the roofer will replace my drip edge if I pay him extra ($200).

I have no plan to replace my gutter.

My questions are:
How long will aluminum drip edge last?
Shall I replace my drip edge now?

Your roofer, who would make money if you did this, told you it does not need to be done

I wouldn't do it
