Water damage insurance in Barrhead, AB

With the increase in severe storms across Canada in recent years, homeowners, renters and landlords in Barrhead know that they need to start thinking about water damage insurance. Half of all property claims are now attributed to water and wind damage from extreme weather, costing Canadians nearly $10 billion in insurance claims since 1998. Find out how you can protect your home against Alberta's extreme weather with Comprehensive Water coverage from The Co-operators.

Protection against extreme weather conditions

Many developed nations have insurance against flooding rivers, lakes and other bodies of water, but, until recently, Canada wasn't one of them. This lack of coverage came to the forefront in 2013, when Canada faced its most destructive year to date for weather-related damage. We are happy to provide a solution with our new Comprehensive Water coverage, which is offered to clients throughout the province of Alberta, including in Barrhead. Take our free online assessment now to find out how high your home’s water risk is.

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.

To learn more about water damage insurance and to review your options, get in touch with your local Co-operators advisor in Barrhead today.

Our Comprehensive Water coverage is:

  • Straightforward: This one product covers you for damage caused by sewer or water backup, flooding caused by an overflow of a body of water, buildup of surface water caused by extreme weather events, and underground water that rises and comes into your home.
  • Custom: Choose the coverage that meets your specific needs.
  • Flexible: Instead of paying a flat dollar amount, your deductible is a percentage of the claim amount, ranging from 2% to 35% with a $1,000 minimum.
  • Cost-effective: You can take advantage of discounts if you choose to install such loss prevention devices as a backflow prevention device or a primary sump pump with a secondary automatic powered backup.
  • Comprehensive: Rest assured your home, personal belongings and detached structures are covered, as well as additional costs incurred if you need to stay elsewhere while your home is being repaired. If your home is unable to be repaired, it’s up to you whether you wish to rebuild or not; either way, we will still honour your claim.
