Rain is unpredictable, but coverage for rain doesn’t have to be.

Looking up and seeing a brown patch from rain water is a scary sight. No homeowner or renter wants to find their roof has a leak, and an even worse sight will happen if it goes without a repair. This may lead you to ask: Does a home warranty cover the roof?

Luckily, there are home warranties to provide coverage on roofs. This coverage is very important to help keep items in your home from water damage. Know the difference between your home warranty and home insurance, and find the best roof coverage to keep both your home and your wallet safe.

Roof Leak Coverage with Home Warranties

Roof leak coverage takes care of roof leak repairs over the occupied living area of a single family home.

Homeowners insurance does not typically cover damage due to wear and tear and may have specific exclusions from perils such as wind and rain damage. Instead with a home warranty, the cost to repair a roof leak is covered according to your terms and you’re only responsible for paying a modest day-of service fee to the technician.

Home Warranty Roof Coverage: What Does it Cover?

When purchasing a roof home warranty, you can rest easy knowing you’re covered with roof leak repairs over the areas of your family home. Select Home Warranty will connect you to a qualified service technician to repair the leaking section of your roof. We’ll cover the costs associated with the repair according to your terms.

  • Covered: A leak in your bedroom, living room, bathroom, kitchen, or any other occupied area of your home is covered, so be sure to check for leaks after storms and make a claim as needed.
  • Not Covered: Certain areas of a roof are not covered, such as if the leak occurs on a patio or through a metal roof. Take a look at our home warranty terms to be sure you’re covering the essential parts of your home’s roof.

Be on the lookout for leaks and when the time comes, submit a claim. Select Home Warranty will help coordinate sending you a qualified technician to repair the problem.

Can a Home Warranty Replace My Roof?

Home warranties do not cover a full replacement of your roof. Your home warranty contract will cover repairs due to leaks.

Roof replacement may be handled by your homeowners insurance coverage. Be sure to document the damage as soon as you notice it, such as after a storm or when the leak suddenly happens. Your home warranty does not cover water damage done to personal items.
