Are Emergency Repairs Covered By Homeowners Insurance?
They can be.
It depends on whether your plumbing repair is:
- Covered on your specific policy details
- Caused by neglect or lack of maintenance
Since every policy is different, some may cover the cost of a professional plumber to fix the issue while other policies only cover water damage. However, most home insurance policies will not cover plumbing repairs for problems caused by neglect or lack of maintenance. Simply put, you’d have to prove the problem was “accidental and unexpected”.
If you have a homeowners policy that provides coverage for your plumbing issue, we’d be more than happy to work with your insurance adjuster! Our team will meet with them directly, write a written report, and recommend the best available options. We offer this as a part of our policy to help customers as best as we can!
