There’s no question that severe weather is in the rise in Canada, which is all the more reason for Olds homeowners and renters alike to obtain flood insurance. What you may not realize is just how financially damaging extreme weather can be: severe conditions have cost Canadians nearly $10 billion in insurance claims since 1998, and half of all property claims today are the result of water and wind damage. Fortunately, you can put an end to your worries with Comprehensive Water coverage, a new offering in Alberta from The Co-operators.
Flood damage can cost homeowners thousands of dollars to repair, but our flood damage insurance is affordably priced. Yet that's not the only thing that sets us apart. With our network of advisors in Alberta and beyond, you can expect exceptional service and expert advice about flood insurance coverage. After all, this type of insurance is relatively new to Canada, so you need to know more than just the price on the quote. Work with us and find out why we've thrived as a co-operative for more than 70 years—always putting our members and communities first.
It wasn’t until very recently that Canadians were able to obtain insurance against overland flooding. This lack of coverage came to the forefront in 2013, when Canada faced its most destructive year to date for weather-related damage. That's why we're pleased to introduce Comprehensive Water coverage for our valued clients in cities across Alberta, including Olds. Start by taking our free online assessment to understand the level of risk to your property.
You can take action now and work to protect your home from water damage by sealing cracks in your foundation walls and basement floors, installing window wells around your basement windows, installing downspouts and regularly maintaining your eavestroughs, among other steps.
