Almost all roofs are made of wood. What type of "roofing" material covers the wood framing? Shingles, tin, cedars shakes? What you want to inspect is the outside surface. Are the shingles curling? Have you had leaks? Is mold or moss growing on it?

Just like your other question, you need to provide a lot more detail to get an answer.
