Inspect the valleys of your roof (the area of your roof with a downward slope). Make sure that the sheet metal does not have any holes or rusty spots.

Replace any in shingles in poor condition to avoid moisture leaks inside your home that can weaken your wall and/or ceilings.Take a look at your gutters to make sure that they drain well and don’t cause water to back up.
