Water Damage!

Monday, July 10th, 2017 by Gwen Hurd


The world is unpredictable. We frequently hear about natural disasters destroying property all over the world. Every region seems to have their plague from mother nature (well, except Hawaii). Blizzards, hurricanes, floods, landslides, hailstorms, tsunamis, earthquakes, sinkholes… am I missing anything? All these lovely events can cause horrible property damage.

But what are the numbers? What events wreak the most havoc? The Insurance Journal has the numbers. The number 1 cause of home claims? You guessed it! Water! Water damage is the most frequent and common claim seen by insurance companies. 30% of all home claims are water damage.

Water damage is the most prolific type of home insurance claim because there are so many possibilities for water to get into your home. From ice dams in the attic to basement flooding, there’s always a place for water to cause problems.
