Our team of qualified insurance professionals at Innovative Insurance Resources in Honolulu, HI understands how much it matters to ensure that your home is protected from all kinds of damage, including water damage. Although it can be hard to figure out whether your home insurance policy may cover certain types of harm that happen to your property, we can offer general ideas of what home insurance policies usually do or don’t cover. Since every home insurance policy is different and has terms and limits that apply specifically to that policy, you’ll want to consult with the insurance agent before assuming that something would be covered.
Likewise, you shouldn’t assume that a policy can’t cover something because of an internet article. Home insurance professionals will give guidance for your situation. They’ll also offer tips on how to make the most of your policy.
Can Home Insurance Cover Water Damage?
To determine whether your home insurance policy might be able to assist with affording the costs of repairing water damage, you’ll first have to consider whether the water damage source occurred inside the home or outside the home. If the water damage resulted from sources outside the home like a flood from a hurricane or other disqualifying natural disaster, it’s unlikely that a home insurance policy will help pay to fix the damage.
On the other hand, if the water damage happened because of an issue with the pipes in your home like one of them bursting or becoming compromised in another way, your home insurance policy might cover the water damage based on the terms.
