water damage vs. floods
what's water damage?
Water damage in your home usually refers to water in home that did not come from the outside or did not touch outside ground. This type of water damage is usually covered by your homeowners insurance.
what's a flood?
Usually, when your or your insurance company refer to a flood they are talking about external water rising into your residence - such as outside floors, heavy rains, overflowing creeks, etc.
Floods are not usually covered by your insurance company and you might need some sort of outside flood damage insurance.[message type="success|error|info|notice"]We're experience with the insurance claims process.
