There is a lot of confusion, both in Atlanta and the Orlando area, when it comes to water leaks and homeowners insurance. What kind of damage is covered?
That depends on the type of insurance you have and what kind of water leak you have. A good rule of thumb, if the leak was sudden, such as a pipe bursting, typically the damages are covered by your insurance.
However, if wear and tear, or poor maintenance was the cause of the water leak, then that may be a different story. Many homeowners are surprised to find out pipes and septic systems require maintenance. For instance, low water pressure, higher than normal utility bills, stains on the ceiling, warm areas on the floor, unusual puddles in the yard, the sound of water running when all the appliances are turned off, and a musty odor, are all signs of a water leak. Cast iron pipes are another area of concern.
