Hey, that’s weird…why’s it raining inside? Unless this is some sort of elaborate practical joke, you’re pretty sure that there shouldn’t be a puddle in the middle of the living room floor. Or water dripping onto your head. Anyways, there’s water where it shouldn’t be and you think a roof leak is to blame. Now the burning question (or soggy question) is does home insurance cover roof leak claims? And how can you tell if your roof is actually leaking? (Not all leaks are caused by a roof problem.) Well, we’ve got the answer to those questions, coming right up.
Did you know that roof inspections help you save on your homeowners insurance?
As we have discussed on insurancehub.com before, preventive maintenance is the key to protecting the investment of your house. Your roof can be compared to a helmet that protects your head. Just as a damaged helmet can make you susceptible to brain injuries, a damaged roof can make you susceptible to water damage, termites, and mold growth.
