Why is the Roof Leaking in My New House?
Home roofing damage, like many issues with home construction, doesn’t typically appear right away. And when it does, trying to deal with a claims issue with home insurance can many times be a difficult challenge as coverage parties seek to disassociate themselves with different kinds of issues. Both require a lot of research, patience, a good understanding and depth in the related technical knowledge, and a bit of resilience in response to the tedious bureaucracy of the claims process.
Who is Responsible for the Leaking Roof in my New Home?
A roof, no doubt, provides an integral part of a home’s protection. It’s also what keeps all the walls of a home connected and everything inside sheltered. However, if a roofing layer is not applied correctly, the related construction work doesn’t use the right materials, or it suffers damage from an unclear source, the repair work can then be quite a hassle trying to get recovery to pay for a replacement. Home builders frequently try to argue that damage found years later is more associated with wear and tear and exposure to the elements than anything done wrong in their construction. Coverage providers also frequently try to quibble about details to get out of paying claims, arguing they are not within the scope of insurance coverage agreed to. In the meantime, a homeowner has to deal with a roof that is about to start being exposed during the wet season to rain, moisture and then subsequent water damage.
And it doesn’t take much for water to do its dirty work once inside. A consistent leak can travel across the inside of a roof, soak insulation, and damage lower layers of drywall significantly. By the time the homeowner actually does see a leak inside the home, the damage is already well under way. Which means hundreds to thousands of dollars of replacement materials and technical work will be needed to restore the leak-damaged area.
