Sometimes it really stinks to be a single mom.....
That said there are a few things to look for on your roof for starters.
Flashing ( metal) around chimneys are a big one. So are the rubber boots that go around any pipes sticking up. They get old.
Missing/damaged shingles, nails sticking up and ridge vents if you have them. It's also important to keep gutters clean as heavy rain can back up water under the shingles.
If you have something specific please post it and we can all help out!

And I need help trimming some way high up limbs from my maple tree so they don't extend over my roofs -- same problem as above.
And I think I need help roofing a couple sections of my lower roofs, but they are steep!
Probably not the jobs you are offering help with, hmm.
Ok -- I need to replace a bathroom mirror and lights -- I'm scared of electrical stuff and the old medicine cabinet has live wires but the lights don't work -- no,it doesn't just need new bulbs, lol.
And making forms to pour new cement porch steps.
And replacing a yard light that the storm took out -- the post is there, the wiring is there, the top with the lamp needs the old clampy thing cut off and the new lamp top put on.
Try that teleport thing -- I have fresh offerings in the kitchen!
It is a $20.00 extension wand that can be hooked up to your hose and act as a 5 foot extension that can be used to spray
the leaves out of the otherwise unreachable gutter above you on the ladder. It can be messy if not agneled properly away from you when spraying - but can be a lot cheaper than calling in a gutter cleaning company.
