The roof is the most important and the single most expensive part of any building. It is also one of the parts with a relatively shorter lifespan compared to the rest of the building like the walls and the flooring.
Roofs typically need to be replaced every 20 or so years. However you also need to get a roof replaced after it has been substantially damaged. Some of the time this expense can be covered by your property insurance.
If you happen to have travelers insurance, you need to fulfill some conditions to qualify for travelers roof replacement.
There are things missing which can lead to rejection of the roof replacement claim and others that might end up in you having to bear part or all of the cost.
