Out of pocket costs to repair water damaged property
Here are some common problems that are typically not covered by a standard homeowners insurance policy:
Water ruins property due to floods, hurricanes or high tides like in Florida. Flood damage and storm surge damage are excluded from standard home insurance policies. If you want coverage for floods, you will need to buy a separate flood insurance policy.
Water damage from swimming pools or fountains.
Water damage due to lack of maintenance or negligence, such as not repairing a plumbing problem.
Water damage from “earth movement” like a sink hole, earthquake or landslide. For example, if your pipe burst because of an earthquake, the water damage most likely will not be covered. If you want coverage for earthquake destruction, you will need to buy a separate earthquake insurance policy.
Water damage that backs up through a sewer or drain. (Unless you have purchased special coverage for this problem.)
Water damage from seepage or leaks through a foundation.
