Should I be concerned about leaves and pine straw buildup on my roof?

Yes, as dirt and debris (leaves, pine straw, limbs etc.) can hold moisture on the roof, you need to periodically check the roof and remove any buildup of debris, being careful not to damage the granule surface of the shingle. If left to build up on the roof, this debris can cause leaking and premature aging of the shingles.
