Cleaning gutters as part of home maintenance

Rain on the Way

Wild weather is in the news more than ever. Day after day, storms, washouts and water damage of every kind happen here and around the world. And this time of year sees more than its fair share of these events. Yet, when asked, about a third of us are not sure what kind of overland water insurance we have, need or can even purchase. It’s too late to wonder after the damage is done. So, now is the time to get your ducks in a row.

Did you know that, in Canada, water damage accounts for well over a billion dollars in insurance claims every year? That translates into a lot of ruined flooring, furniture, photos, electronics, and priceless family items. Never just assume that your homeowners’ insurance covers overland water, leaks, sewer back-ups, or other water damage because that’s usually not the case. Most water damage coverage must be specifically named in your policy, and not all policies are created equal. Most insurance companies provide some water damage coverage for an additional premium, but many do not even offer the option to purchase overland water coverage. Can you afford not to be sure about yours? And how do you know what kind of water coverage you need?

Just call Steers. Our new, easy-to-understand Waterproof Coverage™ is designed with flexibility and options – like combined overland water and sewer back-up coverage. Competitively priced and backed by a hassle-free claims policy, Waterproof Coverage™ provides the peace of mind you and your family need in our changing climate. Got questions? We’ve got answers. And we’re happy to talk with you, anytime, to discuss your individual needs.

So, don’t wait until it’s too late – get water wise today – and have a worry-free Fall, no matter what the weather!
