If they are asking you for the report it would appear they already know what they are looking for at this point. If you hide the information they could deny the policy (or a claim which would be worse) based on misrepresentation. Some companies will give you time to repair/replace a roof but it is at the insurance companies discretion. It sounds like they have the same concerns you do. What I mean is you realize the importance of having insurance due to the age of the roof which is what the insurance company is concerned about also. An older roof is more likely to allow water in and water damage coming in from a roof is very expensive to repair. My suggestion is give them the information they are asking for and wait for a response.

That is not true. I would love to help you but Missouri is not one of the states we write in. You are probably talking to a company like State Farm or Allstate. They may have a company restriction and since they only know what their company can do, they may assume it is the same for all companies. If you would like us to find an agent that can help you, send me an email or give us a call and I find an agent that can write your home insurance. ... more
