What damage do roofing insurance plans cover?
While there are many different home insurance providers and policies, most will cover damage that is out of your control, such as hail storms. Many households in the Brisbane and Ipswich area have claimed roofing insurance following the hail storm in October 2020. It is important to contact your insurance provider as soon as possible to find out if your roof is covered. Delaying a claim can make it harder to receive compensation, and increase the risk of further damage to your home.
