I just had my gutters cleaned, and the roofer said my roof needs
winterized. I never heard of such a thing.
I asked him what it entails. He said they blow off all loose debris, and
pour a solution over the entire surface to keep it from becoming brittle.
Google is no help. Is he pulling my leg, trying to sell me snake oil?
You can be pretty sure this guy is trying to rip you off. If you were
really sneaky, you'd call the local DA's office and set up a sting.
Let him spray your roof, collect some of the "solution", have it analyzed
and nail the SOB. Have an ADA act as your son or nephew so he can be on
site as a witness.
Should be fun!

Each fall, I cover my roof with whipped cream. It attracts birds and
when they poop it waterproofs the roof. At least that's what the
whipped cream salesman told me.
It also keeps the roof from being brittle. Have you ever seen brittle
whipped cream? There you go. QED.
I don't think it's necesary to go this far to get a conviction. If
something goes wrong proving fraud., she'll owe for the service
rendered. OP let the cops or DA advise you, fraud division.
