Inspecting your roof for water damage on a regular basis can help to prevent water damage to both the interior and the exterior of your house. Here are some things that you should watch out for:
Buildup of leaves, twigs, and other yard debris can clog roof gutter and downspouts and can impede drainage. Take the time to properly clear these areas.
Before winter, make sure that all garden hoses are disconnected from spigots and outdoor watering systems, like sprinklers are turned off.
Curling, cracked, or broken shingles may indicate damage from trees. This damage can cause water damage during a rainstorm. Repair all broken or damaged shingles promptly.
Keeping your roof in good repair will help to ensure that your house remains in good repair as well.
