A pipe burst is one of the most destructive things that can happen to a home, and poses a real nightmare for the homeowner. Imagine coming home to see your house flooded, and finding valuable personal belongings and furniture irreparably damaged. The water damage from a burst pipe can cost tens of thousands of dollars, and if not properly dealt with, can even cause structural damage to the home. There is also the subsequent risk of mold and mildew growth, which cause unsanitary conditions and can even make your house unsellable.
Water damage caused by the pipe burst itself is usually covered by insurance, but whatever causes the damage may not be. Often, insurance companies will claim that the pipe burst is only covered under flood insurance, and will therefore only cover part of the repair cost. In other instances, the insurance company may claim that the homeowner was negligent or cite other reasons to deny the homeowner’s pipe burst claim.
A pipe burst can cause serious water damage to your home, as well as to costly and irreplaceable personal belongings and furniture.
