COVID-19: Information for our clients
The latest big trends among Canadian homeowners involve the basement. Whether you want to transform your basement from a dusty old storage space to a tricked-out furnished "man cave” complete with an entertainment center, or if you were considering making some extra money by renting it out as a small apartment, the basement means far more to the average homeowner than it used to. It also means the risk of water damage is that much more severe. Flooding and water damage are never fun, but there is a big difference between a few inches of water in a basement used to store old cardboard boxes and one that is fully furnished and appointed. It's time to review your water insurance in Woodstock and make sure that your policy matches your needs.
Water damage can take many forms. From leaks in the roof to sewage backups in the basement and everything in between. However, most homeowner's insurance policies only cover certain kinds of damage. This is particularly true in regards to flooding, where policies make distinctions between backups, floods, storm surges and more. While the end result is similar (a ruined basement and massive headache) your coverage (or lack thereof) can vary dramatically.
