Around here, if you have cedar shingles...your deductible is super high.

My old insurance company went to 2% of home value for roof damage from wind/hail several years ago.
Changed companies and was surprised to see $1k still available.
For a price...

Nope. Asphalt. I need to call that insurance company and ask. Perhaps I didnít pay attention when we purchased the policy 15 years ago. Iím betting it changed and they hid it in the huge packet nobody reads. (State Farm FYI)

I paid $2,000 (deductible) for roof that had to be replaced - damaged by wind . Had it been damaged by a tornado I would have had to pay $6,000. I was ecstatic to have USAA return some money to me after many, many, many years. Total bill over $21,000. I didn't care if the roofing company overcharged or not.

In 20 years of living here we have had 2 new roofs due to 2 hail storms 10 year apart. Also new gutters and down spouts.
