Your roof is the primary protective element of your house. It has to endure a wide range of conditions, from temperature and weather extremes to the continuous Texas sunlight beating down upon it. And of course, here in north Texas, there's no need to mention hail storms, which cause widespread damage. Most roofing materials are designed to last for years, but sooner or later, whether from hail damage or normal wear and tear, every roof will need repair, and eventually, replacement.
Just because you don't see water leaking through your roof, doesn't mean you don't have a problem. Various issues can develop, including loose tiles or shingles and weakening of those materials. Most of these problems will eventually lead to some sort of leak. Unfortunately, some leaks are not immediately obvious, and if they go on for long enough, may lead to rotting wood structures, mold and other types of water damage. Sometimes, loose shingles may flap in heavy winds, allowing water to enter in, but under calm conditions, show no obvious signs of problems.
If you have any reason to suspect a problem, it's better to be safe than sorry. Even a mild leak will only get worse. If a heavy storm went through your neighborhood, even if it wasn't highly destructive, your roof may have suffered damage. The only way to know for sure is to get a thorough inspection by a qualified professional.
Your roof may not need any immediate work, but it's always good for a homeowner to know its general condition so you can plan for the future. If everything is ok, you'll also sleep better if you're assured your roof is fine. Don't wait till your roof actually leaks.
