The number of severe storms in Canada has risen dramatically in recent years, which means homeowners, renters and landlords in Stettler are more aware about flood insurance than ever before. The facts speak for themselves: extreme weather has cost Canadians nearly $10 billion in insurance claims since 1998, and water and wind damage now account for half of all property claims. Fortunately, you can put an end to your worries with Comprehensive Water coverage, a new offering in Alberta from The Co-operators.
The cost of repairing flood damage can set homeowners back thousands of dollars, which is why we provide reasonably priced flood damage insurance. Yet that's not the only thing that sets us apart. With our strong network of advisors across Stettler and beyond, you’ll have access to the best customer service and expert advice on flood insurance coverage. After all, it’s only natural you’d have questions beyond cost when this type of insurance is relatively new to Canada. As a co-operative for the last 70 plus years, we have plenty of experience putting our members and communities first—that’s why you should work with us!
Up until a few years ago, flood insurance did not exist in Canada. In 2013, this coverage gap was only too apparent as the country suffered its worst-ever year in terms of weather-related damage. We're proud to offer a solution with our new Comprehensive Water coverage for clients in cities across Alberta, including Stettler. You can also get a free online assessment to find out the level of risk to your home.
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.
Don’t wait until it’s too late: contact your nearby Co-operators advisor in Stettler today for more information on flood insurance and get the coverage that’s right for you.
