As the frequency of severe storms in Canada continues to increase, it's clear that homeowners, renters and landlords in Hinton are right to start thinking about water damage 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.

That's why we're proud to offer our new Comprehensive Water coverage to our clients in cities across Alberta, including Hinton. There's also our free online assessment tool so you can determine the level of risk to your home.
You don’t have to wait to better protect your home from water damage: take action now by sealing any cracks in your foundation walls and basement floors, cleaning your eavestroughs on a regular basis, installing downspouts and keeping storm drains clear of debris, among other steps.
