Water and Flood Damage Restoration Claims

While some types of property damage are covered by most homeowner insurance policies, many will not cover home or property damage that results from water or flooding. If insurance coverage isn’t provided, homeowners who have water or flood damage may have difficulty restoring their property to its original condition and replacing their damaged belongings due to the high costs.

Even when flood and water damage to your home or property is covered by your insurance policy, the insurance company may be unwilling to cover the entire cost of repairing the damage, replacing personal items or other property that was damaged. Only the actual cash value of the property may be covered with depreciation taken into consideration and will not be the full replacement cost.  The complications in making insurance claims for water and flood damage are best handled by professionals with experience in working with insurance companies.
