Overview

As your home ages, so does the exterior water service line that brings fresh water to your house. If this line breaks or leaks due to ground shifting or extreme temperatures, you could be faced with an expensive repair bill. There's no way to prevent a water service line emergency. Be prepared with an affordable repair plan called Exterior Water Service Line Coverage. PLUS, Coverage includes an additional $1,000 toward restoring landscaping damaged due to a covered water line breakdown.

Leaks and breaks on a home’s exterior water service line can be caused by aging of the pipe, corrosion, extreme temperatures, settling or shifting of the ground. Basic homeowners’ insurance does not typically cover damage due to normal wear and tear. Help get protection from the high cost of repairs with a home service repair plan from HomeServe.

Does my homeowners insurance cover this?
Many homeowners believe their utility companies or homeowners insurance is responsible for emergency repairs to the water, sewer, plumbing, electrical, heating and cooling systems, but the reality is that in many cases you, the homeowner, are responsible.
