Canada has experienced an increasing number of severe storms in recent years, which means the time is right for Andrew homeowners, renters and landlords to start considering sewer backup insurance. It's estimated that half of all property claims can be attributed to damage caused by extreme weather, which has cost Canadians almost $10 billion in insurance claims since 1998. Fortunately, you can put an end to your worries with Comprehensive Water coverage, a new offering in Alberta from The Co-operators.
It wasn’t until very recently that Canadians were able to obtain insurance against overland flooding. This coverage gap was highlighted in 2013, the country’s worst-ever year for weather-related damage. We're proud to offer a solution with our new Comprehensive Water coverage for clients in cities across Alberta, including Andrew. 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 Andrew today for more information on sewer backup insurance and get the coverage that’s right for you.
As a responsible corporate citizen, we believe in balancing our economic, environmental and social priorities. In fact,
Andrew has a public policy system that provides a minimum level of mandatory coverage to vehicle owners when they purchase license plates.
