Any aluminum head I pull, as a minimum, is going to the machine shop for a professional once-over AND pressure test for cracks.

Head gasket replacement as routine maintenance? No. Not without cause. I know with some brands OF aluminum heads always warp and therefore need to be machined to flat. If the block deck and cylinder head face are not flat sealing is compromised.
