Example of Claims Covered
Frozen pipes: During a cold winter, a community center’s pipes froze and burst inside their facility. This caused major water damage to their building. The community center needed extensive repairs, which came at a great cost. These repairs were covered and paid for under the community center’s property insurance policy.
