Got Flood Damage? We Can Help!
Water damage from a flood or busted pipe in your home can be devastating. The damage can linger for months or years in different forms. Something that can make the disaster even more devastating is finding out your insurance doesn’t cover the damage.
A good rule of thumb when thinking about water damage to your home is that it comes from inside or above, you are generally covered. If it comes from above, you are generally covered. If it comes from the ground or below ground, you generally aren’t.
Homeowner’s insurance policies do not generally cover flood damage, including a flash flood. Back up of the sewer system is another damage generally not covered. It is best to add a separate flood policy to make sure you have coverage for damages.
If a pipe bursts in your home and floods the house, insurance should cover it. If your washing machine or a toilet overflows and floods a room, insurance should cover it. If you have rain water that comes into your home from storm damage, insurance should cover it. If rain leaked into your home because your roof is old and needed to be replaced, insurance may not cover it.
