Is a leak from a pipe inside a concrete slab covered under a homeowner’s policy?
The answer depends on your specific insurance policy language. Slab leaks or Pipe Leaks in slabs typically allow for coverage to all the resulting damage from the leak. This includes gaining access to the pipe through the concrete slab and replacing the concrete slab that was needed to gain access. The pipe its and the cost to repair it typically is not covered. If this happens inside your home and floods your home then the water damage to all affected materials and contents is usually a covered loss under most standard policies. Be careful when you buy your policy or when opening a claim to read your policy or call your agent to make sure there is not a $10,000 water cap on your homeowner’s policy.
