Insurance will only cover things that are a result of a loss. So if the leak in the sunroof was caused by a covered peril — like damage from bad weather — this would count towards a comprehensive claim. If the leak was caused by wear-and-tear, your insurance will not cover it.

While your first comprehensive claim doesn't raise your rate by all that much (about 4.35%, or $64 per year), you should get an estimate for the fix to see if it's worth filing a claim for since you'd still need to pay your deductible for your insurance to cover it. It is likely that you'll save more money by paying for it out-of-pocket.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. For more information regarding insurance and minor damage, see the additional content below.
