Normal home policies do not protect your home from water damages. Placing Sewer Backup onto your policy will grant you protection against any damage resulting from burst pipes or an overflowing sewage system. Water can cause thousands of dollars worth of damage in seconds and thus we always recommend this additional coverage to our clients.
Overland Water Protection
Overland water is an extension to your standard home insurance policy that covers you or your unit from water that overflows or pools and seeps into your building causing damage. This can be from rain water pooling or flooding from a near by water source.
Belleville is a very old community with a rich history resulting in many traditional old style homes being built. The materials used to build those homes may no longer be allowed according to municipal by-laws as they could pose a threat to the structural integrity of the home. If your home needs to be rebuilt but with different materials and you do not have this coverage the difference in cost will come out of your pocket! Since there are still many older homes standing we will always recommend this coverage to our clients with older style homes.
