Home Insurance Utility Line Expense Coverage
Utility lines run underground from your home to the public utility or a private system. A crack or weak spot in a utility line can lead to more extensive damage that can keep you from getting water, electricity, or power.
If a utility line is on your property, it’s not usually your municipality’s responsibility to get it repaired — it’s yours. Our utility line coverage can help cover reasonable and necessary expenses incurred for excavating, remediating, repairing, or restoring land or structures other than buildings. An example of one of our insurance company's pricing and coverages:
