You MUST peel and put eyes on it! When we were shopping 2 years ago, my inspector found a smallish soft spot on the 10 y/o roof. He said at the very least we'd have to peel back the rubber to look. I negotiated a whole new roof off the price. When we started peeling, we found the entire perimeter of the plywood substrate delaminated for about 18 inches in from the edge. = total replacement. Glad we looked.
