Roof Leak Insurance Claims

Roof leak insurance claims are very common, especially here in Florida. A roof leak can be caused by many different factors, including hurricanes, tornados, windstorms and heavy rains. All too often, a roofing problem is not discovered until after water damage has occurred from a leak, which means that not all roof leaks produce noticeable damage immediately.

Many times, a roof leak will cause damage to the interior of our homes or businesses, including staining, cracked paint, deterioration and swelling of the ceilings, walls, baseboards, and so on. Depending on the circumstances, if you have experienced a roof leak, your insurance policy may entitle you to a full replacement of your roof and coverage for interior water damage.

Unfortunately, roof leaks are seldom simple to locate. Sometimes, the hole in the roof is not even close to a stain in the ceiling. Other times, the leak comes from a tiny space between the flashing and the roof. To locate a roof leak, the entire roof must be checked very carefully.
