Does it cover water damage?

The coverage for water damage varies from policy to policy, and almost always there are exceptions or exclusions. For example, many homeowner's insurance policies will cover sudden water damage, but will not cover damage from a slow, long-term leak. And water damage from a flood would be covered under a separate flood insurance policy, and not under your homeowner's insurance. It is a good idea to review your policy and consult with your insurance agent to make sure that you won't have any unpleasant surprises where you thought it would be covered but it isn't.
