Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Plumbing Repairs?

The short answer to whether homeowners insurance covers plumbing is, “It depends.” Policies differ on an individual basis. That said, there’s one thing that is almost universally left out of policies: Preexisting damage.

Did you purchase a Cove Appliance built-in dishwasher between February 2018 and May 2021? The manufacturer is recalling 42,000 of these dishwashers due to a fire hazard. According to the June 16 recall alert published by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the dishwashers can fail to properly shut off, which can cause them to overheat.
