Is Your Insurance Canceling You Because of the Age of Your Roof?

Jun 28, 2024

As a homeowner, your roof is one of your more significant investments. And that’s why your roof insurance is so important. But what happens if your insurance is canceling your policy because of the age of your roof? If you’ve received such a notice, you may feel some frustration and worry set in. But knowing what’s required to be covered under your insurance and understanding what to do in response to such a notice can take some of the pressure off. Luckily, you have Roofing Done Wright to guide you through the process. Whether you’re a homeowner in Georgia or Florida, we have you covered.

Roof Insurance in Georgia: What to Know Regarding the Age of Your Roof

Homeowners in Georgia have been reporting notices from their insurance companies that policies may be canceled if they can’t prove that their roof is less than 15 years old. In some cases, insurance companies are only insuring roofs up to 10 years old. This is a drastic change from what policies used to cover, and if you feel that your case is being treated unfairly by your insurance company, seeking legal counsel may be a smart step to take. Doing so can help you better understand whether the policy cancellation is a.) legal and b.) applicable to your situation. It’s also important that you contact your insurance company for a clearer explanation and review your policy for any provisions regarding the age of your roof.

Roof Insurance in Florida: What to Know Regarding the Age of Your Roof

In Florida, recent policy cancellations by insurance companies were met with the implementation of new roof requirements from the Florida state legislature. These requirements state that companies are not permitted to deny coverage because of a roof’s age if the roof is less than 15 years old, and for those that are older than 15 years old, insurers must allow an agent or homeowners to have an inspection of the roof’s condition before any cuts to coverage. Again, this is where it’s important to have all the information you can get on your roof and any provisions within your insurance policy. It’s also why you may want to consider who to call upon for a roof inspection.

What to Do If Your Insurance Is Being Canceled Due to the Age of Your Roof

If you receive notice that your insurance company is canceling your policy or not issuing a new policy during the renewal window and you find that your roof is nearing the age threshold where it may no longer be covered, it’s important that you know your next steps. Beyond reviewing your policy and shopping around for other insurance possibilities, turning to your local roofing experts can help. For homeowners in Georgia and Florida, Roofing Done Wright is here to help.

We can provide you with a thorough roof inspection and work alongside you to give you a full view of your roof’s condition. This information can be helpful in your negotiations with your insurer, but it can also guide you toward the best course of action for your home’s future. Because if your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan or its condition isn’t where it needs to be, repairs or a full roof replacement may be in order. And we’re the team you can count on to handle that project as well.
