Insurance coverage and galvanized pipe SLAB LEAKS?
I think, only a guess that the pipe under the house and possible even those inside are not covered. The damage they cause probably is, but not the pipe itself. Ask your agent.

Yes, The insurance company will generally have underwriting guidelines for every policy coverage line they offer. If Galvanized pipes do not fit the underwriting guide then yo…ur home simply does not or no longer qualifies for that particular insurance program. Galvanized water pipes are no longer used in home construction. Older homes that were built in times when galvanized pipes were considered acceptable, should be updated to ensure that your home qualifies for future coverage offerings. Occasional home updates are considered part of the homeowners usual and expected maintenance routine. Insurance companies can non-renew policies due to number of claims, type of claims, or change in risk. They especially do not like broken waterpipes, theft/vandalism and fire. They are not supposed to cancel policies due to weather-related events (acts of nature) over which you have no control.
Answer . \ndepending on where you live (check with your insurance company first) they will replace cracked,chipped,pitted glass free of charge. if they do just crack it an…d have them fix it no charge
Most homeowners policys exclude gradual deterioration, and losses must be sudden and accidental, but I would certainly file the claim. They will not ever (that I have heard of…, and I have heard of a lot) cover a "refit" they will cover a spot repair some of the time, depending on the company and the circumstances.
Sure, as long as the damage was from a covered cause. The key tohomeowners insurance is that the damage is due to a covered cause.If you a re searching to see if your insuranc…e will pay forreplacing the pipe because of lack of maintenance, no it will not.Maintenance is not covered on a homeowners policy.
Galvanising means that the pipe has had a coat of zinc electrically applied (galvanisation.) -This makes the steel more resistant to rust, and is very common in 'home duty' pi…ping.
it varies from state to state. In Florida, the condo associations insurance would cover that as long as the policy was "special form" if it is in "basic form" than the Diffe…rence in Condition policy would respond.
Should you pay for slab insurance when the insurance company say they will not pay a claim if the slab cracked and caused a leak?
If you have a history of slab leaks, slab insurance may be the way to go. If your leaks are caused by earthquakes, then you may want to have the insurance, but it is not the m…ost common, overall, for a slab leak to be caused by shifting/cracked slab. Your decision should be based on whether you think there is a good chance that a slab leak will happen again.
The only likely expense they would pay would be to tear out that part of the building to get to the gas leak to determine why it was leaking. 99.9% of the time, the repair is …not covered.

only if engrish is ok
Probably not. It should cover any damage done by the break, but not the break itself.
Some insurance companies will cover some of the cost of slab leak repair. You will not be able to get covered for the actual labor to cut the pipe, or the repair parts, but if… you have slab leak coverage, the insurance company may pay to find the leak, dig to access the leak, and repair the concrete as well as the floor above the leak's location (subject to the terms and limitations of the policy). Some insurance companies will not cover the cost at all. Call your agent to start the process. If you are dissatisfied with the result, you may want to consider hiring a licensed independent adjuster to analyze the policy on your behalf and to act as your advocate.
If the piping is out doors welding will work or brazing In doors extra protection is needed as the zinc causes a lot of problems when heated
Most will if it is in the slab. Where it can get tricky is when the pipe in in the yard.
Galvanized pipes are no longer used for home plumbing purposes. If you home still have galvanized pipes in you home then it indicates that your plumbing has likely never been …updated.
Sorry but this is not a covered cause. It is more like maintenance. I remember a big issue with contractors using galvanized pipes going through concrete slab foundations. The… chemicals in cement tends to dissolve galvanized pipe and if I remember correctly the contractors had to make payment on the damages. Homeowners insurance covers sudden and accidental damages that happened due to a covered cause such as fire, windstorm, vandalism, etc.
