Check Your Insurance Policy

With the ice storm causing havoc across the country, homeowners are being advised to safeguard their properties and remove any debris that may cause damage.

As Quebec, Southern Ontario and the Maritimes continue to battle against the elements, affected homeowners need to check their policies as soon as possible, says the Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC).
The ice-storm has caused widespread damage to many homes across the provinces, with many owners uncertain of what is and is not covered under their insurance policy.
Damage to homes from falling trees or ice is generally covered by a homeowner’s policy, including damage to contents when water or snow enters through opening caused by high winds. 
The IBC says homeowners need to contact their own insurance company if there is damage caused by a neighbour’s tree and to take images of all incidents. 
Many homeowners’ policies have standard deductibles of $500, while a claim of burst water pipes or food spoilage caused by power failure could also be made. 
With Christmas just one day away and many homes still without power, the IBC warns those that are choosing to stay hotels that such expenses may not be covered.
