There’s no question that severe weather is in the rise in Canada, which is all the more reason for Picture Butte homeowners and renters alike to obtain water damage insurance. Since 1998, wind and water damage caused by extreme weather has cost Canadians nearly $10 billion, which is half of all property claims. Make sure your home is protected against Alberta's extreme weather: learn more about Comprehensive Water coverage from The Co-operators.
Until recent years, insurance against flooding rivers, lakes and other bodies of water was not available in Canada. This anomaly was easy to see in 2013, when Canadians experienced their worst-ever year for weather-related damage. For that reason, we're proud to provide Comprehensive Water coverage for our clients in cities across Alberta, including Picture Butte. If you need to determine the risk to your home, there's also our easy-to-use online assessment tool.
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.
