Own an older home? Older meaning more than 30 years? Recently had an insured who’s sewer line failed, causing a nasty backup into his basement. Many people are surprised to learn that their homeowners policy DOES NOT cover the cost to repair or replace a sewer line. Thankfully, we had this particular client with SAFECO and for $30 a year, they will cover up to $12k towards a sewer line repair. The claim went smoothly, and most of all the insured was very satisfied with the whole process.
Be sure to check with your agent in regards to whether or not your policy covers sewer line damage. Odd’s are, it doesn’t. If that’s the case, call us or reach out for a quote!
