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 a new roof? 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.
Most of the time you’re probably not too fixated on the roof over your head. It does its job – it keeps the water out and protects you from the cold, the heat, and storms. Perhaps you don’t give too much thought to it. But here’s the thing – your insurance company does. They’re actually very concerned with roofs.
So, therein lies the question (well, questions):
How does your roof affect your home insurance rates? Can your roof help you get a discount on your premium?
Well, guess what? We’re going to answer those questions.
Should you file a roof hail damage claim after a storm? Maybe, but it is important to note not all damage merits a claim. So what should you do if you suspect you have roof hail damage? Get it inspected.
