To prepare your roof for whatever the summer and the fall brings, you need to remove any dried leaves, dust, twigs and branches that cover your roof after the snow melts. You also need to inspect your roof for any damage caused by the freezing months, so try to check every inch of the roof surface, including the roof valleys, the flashing around the skylights and the chimneys, the gutters and the vents, then note down or document any fault that you find;

If you are, do the repairs as soon as you can; if you would feel more comfortable knowing that your roof is taken care of by experts, start looking for an experienced roofer right away.
