Are Frozen Water Pipes Covered By Homeowners Insurance?

Going on vacation soon?

It’s that time again when we’re ready to leave the cold and head south for a warm get away. But when you’re packing do you ever think to turn off the water to your house?

Unfortunately, homeowners who return from vacation sometimes find that the cold weather in South Jersey caused pipes to freeze and burst, leaving behind severe water damage.

Luckily, these disasters are covered under your Homeowners Insurance. But the headache can easily be avoided by turning off the water valve to the main line.

Generally, if you won’t be home for an extended period the water should be turned off (all year long.) Water lines to refrigerators break, too!

Not all homes have easy-to-find water valves. A local plumber can install one for you so you can truly relax when you’re away from home.

And, of course, never leave the house with a major appliance running. Sometimes appliances break and start leaking or catch fire. Your home is one of the most valuable assets you have. Homeowners insurance helps protect that investment. Get a homeowners quote today by calling us at 1-888-OK-Glenn or clicking here.
