The good news is that roofs are so essential that they are usually well-covered by homeowners or business insurance policies.
The bad news is that insurance companies don’t make money by paying out on claims, which means they are going to do their best to reject as much of your claim as possible.
That’s why you need roofleak.com when your roof starts leaking. We make insurers pay you the maximum that your claim deserves.

A Public Adjuster (PA) is a state-licensed insurance professional who manages claims on behalf of the policy holder. PAs are claim specialists who are able to negotiate directly with insurance companies in advocating for their clients to ensure that the claim is settled in a fair and timely manner.
Not necessarily. Most policies don’t specifically cover a leaking roof. But they do commonly provide coverage for weather events like hurricanes or hail, and any damage that results. This is one of the primary reasons you need a Public Adjuster. Often roof leaks won’t appear until some time after damage occurs, which allows insurers to deny claims. A Public Adjuster like RoofLeak.com works to substantiate the cause of the damage and impel the insurer to accept and pay out the claim.
Under Florida law, an insurance company has 90 days from the date the claim is made to either pay or deny that claim unless “factors beyond their control” impede them from doing so. These “factors” are not clearly defined under the law, which gives insurers a loophole to avoid paying claims promptly. A Public Adjuster like RoofLeak.com is able to legally question the validity of insurer stall tactics and impel them to pay out claims promptly.
Policies vary between insurers, but generally you can expect your policy to cover everything that is not specifically excluded in the text of the policy. Commonly, this includes severe and sudden catastrophic events while excluding damage that occurs due to long-term neglect or poor maintenance.

If the insurance company denies your claim wrongfully, you can file a lawsuit against them. If you win, you are entitled to receive compensation from the insurer for any legal fees you may have incurred. However, before you retain an attorney, you should contact a Public Adjuster such as RoofLeak.com to determine whether you should instead retain them to re-file the claim on your behalf.
Under Florida law, you have 5 years from the date of your loss to file a suit against your insurer. It does not matter how long it takes for your insurance company to deny your claim, the statute of limitations begins on the date that damages occur.
