It depends on what caused the leak.

If the leak is resultant of aged material or normal wear and tear such as an old roof that has outlived the life of the material, then that is a maintenance issue and ceiling damage will continue to occur every time it rains. Your insurance company would probably fix your ceiling but not until after you replace the aged roof.

If it is your house, probably not. The leak and consequent damage would be your penalty for not maintaing your roof. If your house is less than a year or two old, you may be covered by your builder's warranty. If you live in a townhouse or condo, you may be covered by the association's insurance.

Does it cover roof the leaks and wet the ceil in home?

It just depends on why you have a roof leak. 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.
