Sump Pump Overflow

Sump systems are designed to drain water, but certain problems can cause them to overflow instead. They can fail when the sump pump breaks down or loses power. This policy may help to cover repairs or replacement for water damage.

Blocked Drain Tile

Drain tile absorbs and channels water away from your home's foundation. Obstacles like tree roots can clog the tile, causing water to enter your basement instead. This coverage can help pay for damage that occurs because of this event.*
