Does my House Insurance cover Repairs or Damages (Ceiling Damage because of Water) at the property insured?

Asked 4 months ago - Riverside, CA

I have a property in Riverside, CA and its insured with CSE Safeguard Insurance company (If the name would make a difference) and recently i found the Ceiling near the kitchen is Leaking and there's obviously water damage. The question is Can I contact the insurance regarding this and whether they will cover this or not Because i contacted private contractor and they estimate the repairs roughly around $15,000.00 (Fifteen Thousand Dollars) and i cannot afford this or even afford to leave the ceiling damage Not Repaired.

Please Advice!! Thank you

    Answered . A definitive answer would require a review of your policy language, but generally speaking homeowners insurance will cover water damage due to broken pipes.

    One would need to read the policy to provide a definitive answer to your question.
