AnswerIt may vary state to state but generally NO insurance will not cover the leaking pipe but it will cover the cost to get to it and repair the damage done to get to it as well as cover the damage done from the leak. You are on your own with the cost of the plumber. Best bet is to read your policy on exclusions. If it is not excluded, it's covered.

It just depends on why your siding is leaking. If it's leaking as the result of a covered peril, fire, wind or hail damage, a tree fell on it, then it would be covered subject to your deductible. If the siding is just old, worn out or of poor workmanship then it is not covered, it would be an owners maintenance issue.
