During the 2021 Florida legislative session, the Florida Senate approved Senate Bill 76 with the goal of reducing property insurance claims litigation and implementing restrictions on companies that solicit insured individuals to file roof claims. The legislation targets various issues specifically related to roof claims, such as prohibiting contractors from enticing, directing, or motivating customers to contact a contractor or public adjuster to make an insurance claim for roof damage. Additionally, contractors cannot solicit individuals through any means, and are not allowed to offer incentives to residential property owners in exchange for access to inspect their roofs or file roof claims with their insurance company.

The legislation also prohibits contractors from interpreting a property owner’s insurance policy or advising them regarding their coverage, except in cases where the contractor is also a licensed public adjuster. The law requires contractors to provide property owners with a comprehensive cost estimate before performing repairs, with the possibility of a fine up to $10,000 for any violation. Governor Ron DeSantis signed SB 76 into law, effective July 1, 2021.

With regards to homeowners insurance coverage for roof damage, policies may cover the cost of repairs depending on the cause of the damage, such as hail or a fallen tree. It is essential to review the policy to understand coverage limits and deductibles or consult with an agent for assistance in making adjustments. Homeowners insurance may also cover roof leaks if caused by a covered peril, but generally does not cover damage resulting from lack of maintenance or wear and tear.
