I bought this house last year May(2006). Last hurricane season passed without any problems. But this season I have a lot sof leak spots all around the house. The leaks started during the windy rains about 2 months back but I didnt really care a lot hoping I will get it fixed soon. But the last 3 days continues rain has created a huge mess and one of the room had the sheet rock falli down. I cut and removed most of wet sheetrock in the room and there is a hole of about 3′-1′ x 5′-6′ in the room.
I have uploaded some of the pictures here: http://www.fiu.edu/~atmakurk/roof/roof.htm
I have called couple of local roofing people (from Craigslist) and they are scheduled for tomorrow. I am a newbe for all this house maintanence and repairs.
I would like to know whats the best solution at this point. Just repair the leaks ? or the whole roof needs to be replaced ? Will Insurance cover anything if I have to replace whole roof ? I have insurance from Citizens. The house is built in 1977
The roof is a tile. I have posted couple of pictures on this page. They are the end.
(can’t find the high resolution pictures)
I did not get any home warranty. I never knew there was something of this type warranty. I will give a call to Insurance Agent and see what he says. I have couple of local Roof repair persons coming tomorrow to take a look at and give me an estimate.
