Do You Have Coverage For The Service Lines To Your Home?
If you are like me, you probably have received many solicitations from Aqua, or your local water company in the mail. Aqua offers a protection plan for homeowners in Pennsylvania for your exterior utility lines or pipes. Have you already purchased this coverage? If you’re like most people, you probably have ignored the offers, because you’re not quite sure what the coverage is.
As a homeowner, did you know that the underground service and utility lines on your property are usually your responsibility? Damage to the service lines, can happen, and the cost to repair or place the damaged pipes or lines can be costly. Maybe you have a friend, neighbor, or family member that had issues with the underground service line to your home. Do you remember seeing their front lawn and sidewalks under construction. Did they tell you how much the repairs cost? Was it $5000, $7000, $10,000?
Home Insurance Coverage for Service Lines
The standard Home Policy offered by many Insurance Companies, does not provide coverage for damage to underground service lines or pipes. In fact many Insurance Companies do not even offer this coverage as an additional endorsement.
But did you know, that you can purchase this additional protection from McCollum Insurance? Why pay for multiple service contracts, offered by multiple utility companies, when you can build this coverage into your home insurance policy. Please let us know that you are interested in this coverage when speaking to an Agent at McCollum Insurance.
