When you’ve had a flood or water damage to your home it’s a big mess. And one of your first questions is probably whether or not your homeowner’s insurance will pay for the damage and repair. Water damage is one of the most common claims by homeowners, and is also one of the types of claims that is most confusing.
If the flood to your home or business comes from rising water (from a nearby river, for example), then you are probably not covered by your regular homeowners insurance. But if the flooding occurs inside your home due to a burst pipe or leaking washing machine you are most likely covered.
It’s important to remember that insurance doesn’t cover normal wear and tear on your home, so if you are found to be negligent in the maintainance of your plumbing, then a burst pipe that causes damage may not be covered.
