Sources of Roof Leaks

You depend on your roof having the quality and integrity to keep out the elements of nature while you rest comfortably in your home. Unfortunately, roof leaks are common, and they can arise for a number of reasons. When you have a leak in your roof, the need for a repair is immediate. If you have insurance, you should be able to depend on the insurance company to issue benefits pursuant to the terms of your policy. When they fail to do so, you may be able to pursue a remedy through a civil lawsuit.

If you are dealing with an insurance company that is acting in bad faith, you have the right to pursue your claim against them in court. The Dallas insurance claim attorneys of Smith Kendall, PLLC, are dedicated to helping our clients to secure the benefits which they need to address covered damages such as a roof leak.

Reasons for Roof Leaks

There are numerous possible causes for a roof leak, and if your insurance policy covers the source of damage in your case, then it is essential that the insurance company honor the terms of the contract. Some common causes of leaking roofs are:

  • Holes made by animals
  • Missing shingles from wind damage
  • Damage to “flashing” sheets, or sheets that cover transitions and seams in the roof
  • Skylight leaks
  • Damage from hail

An insurer may be hesitant to pay your claim because it has a negative effect on their own profitability, but the terms of your policy are binding and we can help you to enforce them.
