If the shingles must be replaced so often the you need to worry about plywood life, then the roof must be replaced at the rate of 3 times per week for 60 years. In that case, someone is installing them wrong, or give me the homeowners number, I'd love to work for them

When you say re-roof, that implies another layer going over the top of the exosting layer(s).

Most codes only allow 2 layers of roofing and some will allow for 3 at a maximum.

When a complete tear-off of any and all existing layers is done, then the condition of the existing deck sheathing can be inspected and repaired as necessary.
