Homeowner’s Insurance for Chimney Repairs

Believe it or not, under some conditions, chimney repairs can be covered by homeowner’s insurance. There is a clear distinction between cases that are not covered and those that are. Damages as a result of normal wear and tear over time are considered the responsibility of the homeowner to prevent through careful operation of the appliance. Repairs for these issues are not covered by homeowner’s insurance.

However, if in any case a sudden and unexpected event leads to chimney damages, those repairs will be covered by homeowner’s insurance. Chimney fires, lightning strikes, and many other unexpected disaster can demand repairs that homeowner’s insurance will cover for you. These cases can arise from complicated circumstances, so it is always best to do more in-depth research on your specific situation. That said, this is a reliable rule of thumb to follow for most cases of chimney repair under homeowner’s insurance.
