Canada has experienced an increasing number of severe storms in recent years, which means the time is right for Hanna homeowners, renters and landlords to start considering sewer backup 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. Find out how you can protect your home against Alberta's extreme weather with Comprehensive Water coverage from The Co-operators.
Canada was one of the only developed nations without flooding insurance until recently. This lack of coverage came to the forefront in 2013, when Canada faced its most destructive year to date for weather-related damage. For that reason, we're proud to provide Comprehensive Water coverage for our clients in cities across Alberta, including Hanna. If you need to determine the risk to your home, there's also our easy-to-use online assessment tool.
You can minimize the risk of unwanted water entering your home by installing window wells around your basement windows and making sure your eavestroughs and storm drains are free of leaves and other debris.
