The number of severe storms in Canada has risen dramatically in recent years, which means homeowners, renters and landlords in Fort Saskatchewan are more aware about water damage insurance than ever before. It’s no secret either that severe weather is extremely costly; in fact, water and wind damage account for half of all property claims in Canada, and extreme conditions have cost Canadians almost $10 billion in insurance claims since 1998. It's time to learn how you can protect your property against the worst weather Alberta has to offer with Comprehensive Water coverage from The Co-operators.
It's true that Canada was one of the very few developed nations without flooding insurance until very recently. This coverage gap was highlighted in 2013, the country’s worst-ever year for weather-related damage. That's why we're pleased to introduce Comprehensive Water coverage for our valued clients in cities across Alberta, including Fort Saskatchewan. Start by taking our free online assessment to understand the level of risk to your property.
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.
