I had a roof leak declined by my insurance for lack of maintenance.

I was told it would only be covered if a tree limb or something fell on it, struck it or, I hit something while driving.

So, keep up with your roof maintenance program. Even if you pay someone to do it, it's cheaper in the long run.


Say somebody is paying a dealer to inspect and maintain, but you still get a leak?

It may be like your house...if the roof leaks, the insurance company won't cover it if the roof is old, but they will cover the resulting damage inside from the water intrusion. At least mine did. They would not cover the roof damage (and I really would not have expected that) but they covered the resulting damage.


In my friend's case, the insurance company wouldn't cover any of it. They had mold and soft-spots and the insurance company denied the entire claim.

I had a unique (I hope) issue a few weeks ago. I went out to my MH sitting in my yard, and found a hole in the ceiling. I went up on the roof and couldn't see any issue. My son went up a couple of days later and found a hole in the roof. Went back inside the MH and found a bullet on the floor. My insurance company was contacted and has already sent out a check for a whole roof replacement.
