Roof Damage in DeLand, Daytona Beach and Volusia County
Hail, strong winds, fallen trees, and other debris can significantly damage your home’s roof. Although your Florida homeowners policy is supposed to cover this roof damage, you could be extremely disappointed to learn that your insurance company has found reasons to deny your claim. We will fight their denial and make sure you get compensated fairly.
Roof Damage Claims and Your Florida Homeowners Insurance Policy
DeLand, Daytona Beach, and other parts of Volusia County are often hit with strong winds during tropical storms and hurricanes. The roofs on our homes are very vulnerable to damage during these times of high winds, and there’s not much we can do to protect them other than have homeowners insurance that covers wind and storm damage to roofs.
When we have this kind of coverage, we have every right to expect that our insurance company will pay for repairs if our roofs are damaged. However, many times, Florida homeowners are dismayed to learn that their roof damage claims have been denied or that their insurance company has refused to pay for all of the repair or replacement costs.
Insurers might claim that your roof problem existed before the high wind storm and, therefore, the damage is not covered by your policy. They might, for example, say that your roof was old and damaged to begin with, that your roof was not installed properly, or that your roof was not maintained well. They might also limit their assessment of the damage to what is apparent immediately and not account for other issues that can occur over time because of the original damage. Additionally, they have been known to assert that your roof was old and, therefore, not worth the total replacement cost.
