Water Damage is on the rise
One of the main reasons is the climate, 100-year storms are now the new norm, flooding from system overcharging, mass flooding, road and infrastructure damage—none of this is new and the reason why Water damage to the home is on the rise, both in frequency and severity.
Severe rainstorms compounded by the lack of sufficient infrastructure in most communities to handle large amounts of water in a small period of time.
Water damage claims grew from 20 to 50 per cent of all property-related claims within Canada over the past nine years partially from weather related events.
