Zillow doesn't have home police checking on repairs, upgrades, etc. Zillow assumes a house is in standard okay condition in their Zestimates, and doesn't take into account houses in miserable condition vs stellar condition.

A new roof is a repair, and doesn't add value to a house.  If you were to sell, a bad roof would indeed affect your selling price, but that wasn't taken into account with the Zestimates.

Has Zillow sent out an inspector to value the property recently?

A new roof is a maintenance item, will not affect value
