Water Backup

Did you know that water backup damage is one of the most common causes of loss for homeowners? 

There is an optional endorsement that can be added to a policy to ensure that waterback up is covered.  A typical homeowners policy covers a toilet or shower being clogged, overflowing, and causing damage.  There are other ways that water backup can damage your home, and water damage can be extensive and expensive to repair! 

If you wonder what is or is not covered on your policy, call your agent and ask them to explain it to you.  You can add more water backup coverage by adding an endorsement.
