Inspect the Roof and Chimney

Keep a good roof over your head by examining it for problems yearly – and take care of any you find right away. Make sure that storms haven't lifted, curled, or damaged any shingles, and that there's no "sponginess" underfoot. Remove leaves from roof valleys, and clean the screens on roof vents and louvers.

Check the flashing around your chimney and any skylights, and inspect the rafters inside the attic for any signs of water damage. Clean the chimney cap, if necessary, and have the inside of the chimney cleaned, if you didn't do it last fall.
