There is nothing more frustrating than damages to your property. The only thing more frustrating than the damage itself is trying to deal with an insurance company that does not want to pay for the full extent of the damages.
Pipe Burst Damage
A burst water pipe in your home will cause damage eventually, depending on the location and severity of the pipe damage. Whether large or small, a burst pipe and resulting water will damage your property until the water is shut off and drained from flooded areas. There are a variety of situations that can result in pipe burst damage to your property.
Some of these situations include:
- Water damage to walls, furniture, or belongings
- Leaky roof or floor
- No running water
- Broken appliances
- Electrical wiring issues
It is important to know the limits and coverages of your insurance policy. The extent of your damage needs to be carefully documented, as well as the cause of the damage. You need to fully understand what type of damage is and is not covered by your insurance policy. Insurance companies have started to significantly limit the coverage available for pipe burst damage on property owner’s policies.
