Does home owners insurance cover a caved in garage roof from snow?

Yes.


Will homeowners insurance cover a roof?

Yes, If your roof was damaged by a covered peril on your Home Insurance Policy then you have coverage. If your roof is just old and is due for a replacement then that is part of the home owners maintenance responsibilities and is not covered under your policy. Roofs occasionally have to be replaced when they reach the end of their life expectancy much the same way you need to paint every number of years. It's just normal maintenance. Failure to maintain your home in a reasonable condition can result in cancellation or non-renewal of your Home Insurance Policy.

Does homeowners insurance cover roof replacement?

It depends on why your roof needs replacement. If your roofing material has reached the end of it's life expectancy (normally no more than 20 years) then it is not covered. This is an owners maintenance issue considered a normal and expected part of home ownership. Much the same as a home needing an occasional paint job. If the roof needs replacement due to damaged caused by a covered peril such as Fire, wind hail etc. then you may have coverage. If damaged due to a covered peril and you have a replacement valuation on your policy then your insurance company would cover the cost of repair or replacement depending on the extent of damage and the roofs repairability. If you purchased a less expensive policy based on ACV, then the insurance company would only pay the depreciated value of the roof. In this case the home owner would need to make up the difference out of pocket in order to pay for the roof replacement.


Will insurance cover a leaking roof?

It depends on why your roof is leaking. If your roof was damaged by a covered peril such as fire lightning etc. Then your Homeowners insurance would cover the damage. If your roof is old and worn out, it just needs to be replaced and would not be covered by your homeowners insurance. Roofs require the home owners maintenance and upkeep along with replacement every 20 years or so. It's just part of the cost of owning a home. Failure to engage in expected normal maintenance of your home can be interpreted as a moral hazard and can result in cancellation of your homes insurance policy. If your roof is fairly new and you just have a leak with no visible damage, then it is most likely the result of faulty workmanship and again, not covered by your home insurance policy.

Does home owners insurance cover damage caused by a roof leak?

If your roof is leaking due to a loss suffered from a covered peril under your policy such as fire, wind hail etc. (see your policy for covered perils) then your roof leak as well as any resulting damage should be covered under you home insurance policy. If you roof is leaking simply because it is old and has reached or or surpassed it's life expectancy (an expected and normal home owners maintenance issue) the roof leak would not be covered.


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.


Will homeowners insurance pay for your roof replacement?

It really depends on several factors such as the language of your Homeowners Insurance Policy, The condition of your roof but primarily, whether you have replacement valuation on your homeowners insurance policy. If your wanting your roof replaced simply because it is worn out then there is no policy that will cover it as that is just a normal and expected part of home ownership. Composition (Shingle) roofs need to be replaced about every 20 years or so. If your roof is severely damaged and a total loss due to a covered peril such as wind or hail damage, with replacement valuation coverage on your policy and the roof is beyond repair, then you should have no problem getting it covered for replacement by your insurer.
