Photo 4  
Roof access door has deteriorated and will not close, this is an entry for rodents, water and insects.

Photo 5  
This should be repaired asap, this is direct accessto interior attic structure, animals, and rodents etc.

Many of the rain gutters are completely blocked with debris

Photo 7  
Build up of leaves and mulch from trees, should be removed can deteriorate roofing materials.
