Avoid Unwanted House Insurance Claims This Winter

Released on January 16, 2015

Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority of Saskatchewan (FCAA) in partnership with the Insurance Brokers’ Association of Saskatchewan (IBAS) is pleased to provide the following winter house maintenance tips to help Saskatchewan homeowners avoid home insurance claims this winter.

“No one wants to wake up one morning to see water running down their wall, call their insurance agent and be told they don’t have coverage,” FCAA Chair and CEO Dave Wild said.  “Homeowners should perform regular house maintenance and know their coverage.” 

Not all house insurance policies are the same.  Understanding the different types of coverage, what is covered and the circumstances around the coverage is very important.  Talk to your insurance broker if you have questions about your policy.

“Homeowners who are planning to escape the cold for an extended period of time should talk to their broker if they’re not sure about what’s covered and make sure to have someone check their house on a regular basis,” IBAS Executive Director Ernie Gaschler said.

The winter house maintenance tips will be shared via twitter @SKGov, @skbrokers and are available at
