Homeowners who have experienced property damage caused by a burst pipe know that it is no small matter. A burst pipe can cause flooding which could lead to extensive water damage and even mold or mildew growth. These are serious consequences that can damage the structural integrity of your home or place of business and threaten the health and well-being of residents – even making the building unsellable. Usually, significant flooding can damage your possessions and furniture as well, sometimes causing irreversible damage to priceless family valuables or favorite belongings. These types of damages add up, often costing the homeowner tens of thousands of dollars to properly repair. If the property that has been impacted by a burst pipe is insured, in many cases the insurance company is responsible to cover those damages. Unfortunately, many insurance carriers treat these claims very reluctantly.
