Is insurance available for water damage?

You never know when rain is going to hit, and hit hard. In Canadian cities, we’ve learned to take the weather as it comes. It’s impossible to accurately predict what’s going to happen next.

That’s why it’s so important to prepare for the unexpected. Will your current home insurance policy cover you if water enters your home during a sudden downpour? It may come in through the roof or perhaps under the door if an outside drain plugs and backs up.

Most insurance policies provide water damage protection, but it’s often just from inside sources, such as an overflowing toilet, or a burst pipe. Not all insurance companies will cover your claim if the water comes in from the outside during a storm or if sewers backup into your home. Even if they do, they often charge you an extra premium to purchase additional water damage riders.

At Square One, we include the broadest water protection available, in all of our policies. You don’t need to worry about adding extra coverage. We believe in protecting you against the unexpected. Call us at 1.855.331.6933 for a quote tailored to your unique needs. Or get an online quote now.
