Will Insurance Cover Water Emergencies? Only an experienced restoration company should restore your property to ensure coverage. A company who documents every detail before and after the restoration project will save you $5000-$50,000 dollars in coverage. In some cases, the savings is even greater!
Will Insurance Cover Water Emergencies Like This?
You walk into your kitchen one morning, half asleep. As you reach for the coffee, you feel water through your socks. That means the kitchen floor is damp, and you notice more water is coming from the wall.
So, you call the first restoration company that pops up in your Google search.
The technician arrives…eventually. He notices there is water slowly leaking from the exterior spigot located on the kitchen wall. He suggests the cause of the water damage is a slow leak in the exterior spigot. This type of slow leak is not covered by standard homeowner’s insurance policies. Later, an insurance adjustor inspects the damage. The adjustor agrees with the restoration technician. This decision leaves the entire cost of repair on your family. In your case, it will be thousands of dollars worth of repairs!
As a result, you are in shock, but you decide not to give up. You search Google again, but you decide to read the customer reviews before placing your call. The reviews for Independent Restoration Services are terrific! So, you call IRS.
Certainly, the owner of IRS arrives within one hour. He inspects all areas affected by the water, and gets to work. He discovers the leak is not from the spigot. The leak is actually from a burst pipe in the wall. The water is coming from the supply line to the spigot. This type of leak is definitely covered by insurance.
Next, he documents every detail and makes a call to your insurance company. He strongly requests the damage be covered. After some deliberating and more than one call from IRS, your insurance company agrees! You are on your way to a restored home without a dime from your own pocket!
