What Is Water Backup Coverage?

And Why Is It Important?

Water Damage Can Be Disastrous To Your Home
Imagine discovering that your entire basement is filled with brown water and sewage from a backed-up water main or other pipe. It’s not only disgusting and potentially dangerous, it’s also expensive.

On average, most water backup claims cost $5.000-$10,000 to repair.

Water Backup Coverage
is optional coverage that can be added to your existing homeowners policy for this type of situation. But since many homeowners policies either don’t cover water backups, or only offer limited protection, it’s worth learning more about this valuable and affordable option.

The Amount of Coverage You’ll Need Depends on Several Factors Including:

Whether you have a finished or unfinished basement
The size of your basement
The type of flooring in your basement
The type of wall material in your basement
Whether your basement has a bathroom
Whether you have a washer, dryer, or heating and cooling system in your basement
