The best way to know what is covered is to contact your insurance provider. Your coverage will depend on the age of the roof, where you live, and other factors. Most homeowner insurance policies will provide coverage for roof damage caused by unpreventable events like wind, rain, and hail.
Depending on the age of your roof, you may only be reimbursed for the depreciated value of the system. Regardless, when you submit your roof insurance claim, an insurance adjuster will be sent to inspect the damaged areas and determine the cost that the insurance company will pay.
RCV stands for Replacement Cost Value. This is the total budget your insurance company has set for the replacement of the damages to your home.
Manufacturer warranties are lifetime and most are transferable to new homeowners.
