No matter the reason for the leak, a leaky roof can cause a large amount of damage to your home as well as the personal property inside your home. Almost all roof leak cases occur because of severe weather such as hail, wind, or lightning. Homeowner’s insurance should cover against roof damage so you can get your roof replaced. Unfortunately, some insurance companies act in bad faith on many roof damage claims and may deny or delay making payments on a valid claim.
Repairing or replacing damage caused by a roof leak can be prohibitively expensive without the benefits you are due under your insurance policy. For help enforcing the terms of your coverage when an insurance company has failed to observe its obligations, contact the Dallas roof leaks insurance litigation lawyers of Smith Kendall, PLLC, at (214) 361-6124 today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your legal options.
There are a variety of causes for a roof leak. Approximately 95 percent of all roof leaks are because of damage to the weathering that surrounds your chimney and air vents. This can happen for a variety of reasons including weather damage or even poor installation.
Your roof may also leak after wear and tear from the age of the roof itself. If your roof has been damaged and leaks, your insurance company should provide you benefits as provided under the terms of your policy. The failure to do so may warrant the pursuit of legal action.
Do not delay, as waiting will only serve to increase the financial strain that you experience as a result of a roof leak. Contact the Dallas roof leak claim lawyers of Smith Kendall, PLLC, by calling (214) 361-6124 today.
