Home insurance?

We woke up last night to our roof leaking! Had to sleep with a bucket in between my husband and I. Could we get this fixed through our insurance? Our roof is messed up all over the place because of the wind, but it hasn't been windy lately so I am not sure I could claim this through the ins. Anyone have experience with this?

  • sure why not? We got our carpet replaced when a water pipe frozen and busted.

  • Yes, especially with roof damage....where the leak comes out might not be where it is starting. They would send an appraiser out. Be forewarned, tho' - your rates might go up.....or policy could be cancelled!

  • Call your insurance company and talk to them; only their appraiser will be able to tell you whether you are eligible for a claim or not. All the best!
