The number of severe storms in Canada has risen dramatically in recent years, which means homeowners, renters and landlords in Vulcan are more aware about sewer backup insurance than ever before. 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. 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. In 2013, this coverage gap was only too apparent as the country suffered its worst-ever year in terms of weather-related damage. For that reason, we're proud to provide Comprehensive Water coverage for our clients in cities across Alberta, including Vulcan. If you need to determine the risk to your home, there's also our easy-to-use online assessment tool.
There are steps you can take to keep unwanted water out your home, including clearing eavestroughs, installing window wells around your basement windows and keeping storm drains clear of leaves and other debris.
