How many of you know whether your home is in a flood zone or how to protect yourself from water damage? With the rise of extreme weather happening in Canada it’s important to make sure you have the correct insurance coverage. Comprehensive Water from The Co-operators can help.

Water Damage Protection with Comprehensive Water from The Co-operators

Before I had this blog, I used to work in insurance. I think it was my time in insurance that instilled a deep belief of being prepared and always having adequate coverage. I pay my monthly premiums for peace of mind but that doesn’t mean that I don’t also do everything I can to ensure our risk is low.

In recent years, the reports of massive floods hitting both urban and rural areas have been increasing at an alarming rate. In Toronto, the city almost comes to a complete standstill when we get a heavy downpour and it becomes painfully obvious that the infrastructure is not in place to deal with the new normal when it comes to weather.

The Co-operators believes that we all need to work together to not only protect our homes but also our communities and I couldn’t agree more. Helping others could be as simple as sharing the information in this post with loved ones so that they can protect themselves before it is too late.

I know that in my community the city ripped up all our streets to lower our risk of flooding due to stormwater, but I still take extra steps to protect myself. We have a water sensor in our basement that alerts us and our home security company if water is present. We make sure our home is graded properly and that there are no cracks in the foundations. But there is more we can do to not only protect ourselves but our community as well.

With 94% of Canadians living in flood zones and unaware of it, it’s easy to see why less than 30% are doing something to protect what matters most. Water damage is now the costliest causes of damage in Canadian homes, surpassing even fire lately. Make sure you test your water H2O and find out your water risk through the water risk assessment.

And if you’re anything like me you still need to talk to a Financial Advisor about Comprehensive Water coverage. It’s easy to understand the need for water damage protection for the most important things in your life: family, home, and belongings. Comprehensive Water covers your home against sudden and accidental water damage whether it enters your home through a sewer or septic backup, or accumulation of water from extreme rain and overflow from lakes, rivers and other nearby bodies of water.

    Home insurance policies (as default) do not insure for overland flood coverage, water damage or sewer backup. You must request each item individually and see if its available for you in your area… But definitely inquire.

    Thankfully we have the Co-Operators because the issue of flooding has indeed become more of the norm. We live on the top of a hill and still got flooded one year because the ground was saturated from rain and would not absorb any more water.
