The Ins and Outs of Water Damage Coverage

When facing water damage, you often wonder what your insurance covers when it comes to restoration. Your insurance company provides water damage coverage specific to the cause of the damage. Water damage caused by a flood, or otherwise known as an outside source, requires special insurance coverage. Usually, your insurance provider covers water damage from interior sources, such as appliances and busted pipes. Each policy contains specifics on how to cover water damage restoration to your home. No matter what caused your water damage, it can be restored.

Water Damage Coverage Inside the Home

The first thing you do, when you discover water damage in your home is file a claim. The common dilemma of filing a claim, is knowing cause behind the damage. Some common causes include a broken pipe, a faulty sump pump or a roof leak. Broken appliances also cause flooding and water damage. Water damage coverage is very specific, based on the cause. Usually, your insurance provider covers any damages and restoration caused by a problem inside of the home.

Water Damage Coverage Outside of the Home

Unfortunately, water damage comes in various forms, not just inside the home. Your insurance provider handles water damage caused by flooding differently than water damage caused from interior sources. Unknown to many homeowners, flooding needs a particular sort of coverage. According to most insurance providers, water damage from flooding is caused by an overflowing river, overflowing lake, a hurricane, a tsunami, a mudslide, and even heavy rains. In northern states, ice jams on rivers often cause flooding in the spring, as well. When dealing with your provider, you may want to debate the water damage coverage. It’s possible that your sump pump was unable to keep up with flooding, or torrential rains caused your roof to leak. Unfortunately, your insurance company consider these details situational.
