About Insurance and Water Damage
A home or business owner’s insurance policy may or may not cover the costs which are associated with water damage and restoration. While one of the most common causes or residential water damage is the failure of a sump pump, many homeowners do not have insurance that cover the associated costs without an addendum which adds to the monthly premium of the policy. Typically, the verbiage of this addendum will be similar to “Sewer and Drain Coverage.”
Those who live in an area that is affected by wide scale flooding may have the ability to apply for either government of FEMA Grants to cover the work that needs to be done. Businesses, cities and whole communities can also apply for FEMA Public Assistances programs after a catastrophic natural disaster which causes flooding.
