First, you should inspect for damaged or missing shingles. Cracked and worn shingles can expose your roof to the elements. If this is the case, it can lead to a weak, rotted roof throughout the winter. Make sure to take an extra look at any areas with roof flashing. The last thing you want is structural damage or mold come spring!




If you find sections of the roof that are discolored, you might need to replace some shingles. The green color is most often due to a build-up of algae. The algae love to eat the limestone within certain types of shingles. Thus, they turn a green color and lead to weakened shingles and roofs.


Debris in Valleys and Drains


Water can build up in the nooks and crannies of roofs. Furthermore, they can build up piles of leaves and other debris. From there, it’s a good idea to take care of the clutter, so it doesn’t result in water or ice dams. Built-up water is one of the main reasons the roofs have damage!


Water Damage


Don’t forget to take a good look at all chimneys, valleys, and roof flashing. These areas are all highly susceptible to water damage. If you notice water damage near any of these areas, it might be time for a new roof flashing kit!
