Keep the Claim Free Discount

There are millions of homeowners claims filed each year that are non-fire related.

Here are some suggestions on ways you can keep your claim free discount:

Inspect your gutters. Ice and snow can loosen gutters causing a change in water flow. Leaves can cause water to flow over the gutter and result in water in the basement.

Test the sump-pump. Pour water into the chamber and make sure it drains properly.

Check the roof. Change in temperature can cause cracking and ultimately - leaks.

Walk the yard. Make sure that the grading drains water away from your foundation. Flower beds can settle and they tend to be close to the foundation wall.
