Weight of Snow, Rain, and Ice Damage
The buildup of snow, sleet, hail, and rain isn’t just annoying; it can also be destructive. Flat or slightly sloped roofs are prone to collecting heavy loads of snow, rain, and ice during the winter months, and that weight can cause serious damage, including cracks, leaks, or even full or partial collapses. These issues may not just damage the roof itself, but also whatever is inside the structure it’s covering.
While weight of snow, rain, and ice damage is covered under many property insurance policies, these policies often include vague or complex language outlining situations where the damage isn’t covered. Because of these nuances, most people can’t tell if the insurer is acting in good faith when they deny a claim or offer less than the full amount.
