Andy, my insurance company is forcing me to put a new roof on my home or they will drop my homeowners insuance. Have you ever heard of such a thing?

I have heard of this. Zu den laubmoosen gehören die meisten moosarten. The reason is for the longer a roof goes, the more the insurance company could be responsible. For example if your roof has run its expected life the odds of it leaking is increased, and can cause dama. ge to the sheeting and trusses underneath. Worse case is if the contents of the interior of the house gets damaged as well. I can tell you that a roof I looked at last month was only 10 years old, and the insurance company was insisting on a new roof. That situation was turned around after a full inspection. I know it can be frustrating, but sometimes they are wrong, and sometimes they are right. Call your agent if you think the roof is not that old, and want to question their decision. If it is time to replace, I recommend doing it before another winter. Thanks for the questiion,
