Comprehensive water coverage
Comprehensive water provides simple and easy-to-understand protection for your family, home and belongings from sudden and accidental water damage* caused by:
- Water, septic or sewer backups, which is the sudden discharge, backup or overflow of water or sewage that enters your home through inside drains, a sump pit drainage system or overflow from outside drains or sewers
- Storm surge, defined as the abnormal rise in lake or ocean water level during a storm, when the height of the water goes above the normal predicted level
- Waves, and spray from waves, resulting from a storm or hurricane
- Flooding from the overflow of any natural or man-made body of water, like a creek, stream, river or lake. This includes floods caused by breaking dams, levees or other water containment systems
- Surface water, a buildup of water caused by heavy rainfall, fast snow melts and extreme weather
- Rising of the water table, which happens when underground water rises to the surface. Underground water can also cause damage by putting pressure on sidewalks, driveways, foundations, walls and floors, causing leaks or sudden breaks
*Comprehensive water covers your home, personal property and detached structures, with the exception of structures designed or used for agricultural purposes.
Depending on the age of your roof, you may receive additional coverage** for above ground water damage.
**Some restrictions may apply. Contact your financial representative for details.
Our policies include liability coverage, meaning that you don't have to worry if someone has an accident in your home, like slipping on your steps. We even cover the costs if you're on vacation and you accidentally break something in your hotel room.
Optional coverage for your home
You can purchase extra coverage for:
- Seasonal residence and contents
- Water infiltration and sewer backup damage
- Use of residence for professional activities
- Personal belongings in storage
- Earthquake damage
- Golf carts
- Above-ground pool and outdoor spa
Let your financial representative know about any furs, gems, electronics or other high-value items in your home. You may need additional coverage to ensure they are fully covered.
