About Roof Insurance
Likely, you have purchased homeowner's insurance to protect that investment in case something destroys it.
Did you know, not all homeowners' insurance policies are the same? Especially when it comes to covering the roof that shields you and your belongings from all of Mother Nature's fury.
Your roof doesn't attract much attention until there's a storm and it's damaged. When it's damaged it is expensive to fix. You don't want to find out about your insurance coverage after your roof is damaged.
The information provided below will help you learn more about roof coverage before there's a problem. That way you know you have the insurance coverage you want or need.
Know Your Options
If you need more coverage for your roof, you can call your insurance agent (called a producer) and ask them about your options. You can also shop around for a different insurance company that has better coverage for your roof.
Remember, you'll be responsible for anything that isn't covered by your insurance. For instance, wear and tear (referred to as depreciation) of a roof over time isn't covered. But a windstorm that rips up a section of your roof is.
