Water Damages - Call Your Home Owners Insurance

I am posting this as a reminder for Home Owners on the site.

In my region, there has been a lot of flooding and related water damages from storms.

We get many calls from people, looking for quotes on the removal of the damaged areas and repair of them.

I always make it a point to remind them to contact their Home Owners insurance, to inquire about their coverage relative to this.

I'd say about 50% of people I meet, don't realize that they should be covered, in some form, for such damages.

We were not covered on our original policy - 1st year we bought house
AS it turns out there is a $25 a year rider for a sump pump
Of course the Insurance company never bothered to tell us & we didn't know to ask
Even tho we may never have a problem we keep that extra insurance
As I recall it only covers a certain amount...maybe up to $25k here ?
Depends upon your insurance.....so like Atlantic said - check & find out !!
