You home insurance will cover certain "sudden" losses resulting from the perils described in your policy. Typical sudden loss perils are fire, wind, hail, lightning etc.

Your homeowners insurance policy does not provide coverage for poorly installed roofs nor for cosmetic or aesthetic conditions of your home nor from conditions that result from normal wear and tear.

If your roof has developed blisters this could be a sign of age or of improper installation of the roofing materials and can be addressed by your roofing contractors General Liability policy. Most Contractors General Liability insurance policies provide coverage for the Roofers completed operations and quality of workmanship issues.

Will homeowners insurance cover a new roof?

Your question can be read in a couple of ways. 1. If an occurrence covered by a homeowners policy caused damage to the roof, it probably would be covered. If the occurrence that caused the damage was a type of occurrence covered by the policy, the damage would likely be covered. 2. Conversely, if the roof leaked just because it was old, insurance would not cover repair or replacement because insurance does not cover ordinary wear and tear. 3. If what you mean is whether a new roof (rather than an existing roof) is covered, the rule stated in #1 would apply.

Only your insurance agent can tell you. I would think not. It's like getting an oil leak on your car. You pay for that. If the leaf is the result of something falling on your roof I believe that would be an insurance issue.

Will homeowners insurance cover roof replacement?

It depends on why your roof needs replacement. Bear in mind that your property insurance policy is "Hazard and Accident Insurance", and not a home warranty or home maintenance policy.If your roof was damaged by a covered peril such as wind, hail, lightning, etc, Then your homeowners insurance would cover the cost of repair subject to your deductible of the damaged portion. It would only replace the entire roof if your policy has replacement valuation and the roof was damaged beyond the ability to repair it.If your roof is just old and has reached it's life expectancy then it is not covered under your homeowners insurance policy. That would be a normal expected maintenance expense incidental to home ownership. Composition shingle roofs for example have a rated life expectancy of about 20 to 25 years. After the roof has reached it's life expectancy it is considered to have depreciated to zero value and therefore non-insurable.
