Canada has experienced an increasing number of severe storms in recent years, which means the time is right for Strathmore homeowners, renters and landlords to start considering sewer backup insurance. Since 1998, wind and water damage caused by extreme weather has cost Canadians nearly $10 billion, which is 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.
It's true that Canada was one of the very few developed nations without flooding insurance until very recently. Albertans especially won’t be soon to forget that 2013 was Canada’s worst-ever year for weather-related damage. That's why we're proud to offer our new Comprehensive Water coverage to our clients in cities across Alberta, including Strathmore. There's also our free online assessment tool so you can determine the level of risk to your home.
You can be proactive about minimizing water damage to your home by installing downspouts, sealing cracks in your foundation, cleaning your eavestroughs and ensuring storm drains are clear of leaves and other debris.
