Wind-Driven Rain and Roof Damage
In a city like San Diego, rain can be elusive.
Regularly, six months at a time will pass between precipitation events. This general lack of rainfall is great for beach-goers, but presents a problem to homeowners and those who are responsible for maintaining roofs. The tendency to put roof maintenance on the back-burner is especially common.
While all types of roof leaks during a storm can cause significant interior damage, only certain types of roof damage are covered by typical homeowner’s insurance policies. Insurance adjusters will often deny coverage for leaks that they consider to be “maintenance and repair issues.” They will often provide coverage for damage interpreted as “wind-driven rain damage,” which means that the wind was blowing so fast that rain entered a home horizontally.
