Flooding and water damage caused by aging, faulty and defective plumbing and appliances cost homeowners billions of dollars each year. Washing machine hoses split, pipes freeze and burst, dishwashers leak, toilets overflow, and water heaters fail all resulting in needless expensive property damage. Often the property that is damaged is difficult or impossible to replace such as artwork, antique furniture, computer data, old photographs, and more. Homeowner’s insurance helps defray some of the cost of losses and repairs, but cannot prevent loss or damage to your valued property. It happens every day, so why leave your home unprotected?
