Mold can be very damaging to a home and to your family’s health. It can develop over a long period of time behind walls and under carpeting without providing any indication of its presence. During that time, it can use HVAC systems to spread throughout the home. Over time, it can destroy walls and, in extreme cases, make the home uninhabitable. This scenario can put your home at risk, and the damage can be very costly to overcome.
If you’re like most Americans, your home is your largest investment. You put a lot of money into purchasing it, paying off the mortgage, and keeping it running. But you also put a great deal of time into making it your own. You are proud of your home. So what if something were to happen to it — such as a fire, burglary or vandalism?
The roof of your home not only protects your family and belongings, but it also helps secure the structural integrity of the property. With that in mind, your home insurance company is very much focused on helping you to protect your roof. If you have a simple roof leak, for instance, it could impact the overall structural integrity of the building. It is much easier and less expensive for a home insurance company to cover the repairs to your roof than to replace the home because of structural damage.
