Does your home owners insurance cover a sewer line that has been broken? There are things to consider here. There is the replacement cost as well as the damage that a broken sewer line can do to your valuables. You want to talk about holding your nose? This could be devastating in a couple of different ways!
Of course, every homeowner’s policy is a little bit different. MOST of these policies pay for some of the costs of replacing faulty wiring or interior plumbing. Any exterior plumbing problems are often ignored. One of the first things that your home insurer will want to know is “where did the break occur”? Was it within your home’s foundation?
These are not topics that we want to think about, but in the dead of winter it is a good time to give it a bit of thought. One thing you don’t have to think about is whom to call in the Seattle area if a sewer line breaks and causes damage in and around your home. It all starts with Snohomish master plumber Shawn Allen.
