Protecting the Insurability of Your Home or Building

The statistics are eye-opening. Approximately 25% of homeowners have experienced water damage from appliance leaks and broken or frozen pipes. Over 95% of basements experience flooding. And nearly every home or building is susceptible to some form of water damage. In addition, the average homeowners’ insurance claim payout for water damage is nearly $12,000. 

How can you avoid the high costs of water damage for your home or business, and how can you keep your insurance premiums as low as possible at the same time? WaterCop may be the answer you are looking for. 

Give yourself more insurance against the high-cost of water damage. 

Repeated or large insurance claims are costly. Not only do you run the immediate risk of increased premiums, multiple claims will expose you to potential loss of affordable coverage or may even result in policy cancellation.
