Service Line Coverage Endorsement
Service Line Coverage provides for the repair or replacement of underground systems that service the household, such as sewer lines, plumbing, electricity, natural gas, as well as telecommunications and internet access. Service line coverage also includes the cost to replace landscaping, concrete work, and anything necessary to access the underground systems and restore the property to its pre-loss condition. Most carriers usually offer coverage limits of $10,000 or $15,000. Some carriers may even offer higher coverage limits.

Example: A tree root grew through a sewer line located on a homeowner's property. The line required excavation to dig up the pipe and replace it. The cost to replace the line was $2,000 and the excavation of the line cost $6,500.
The annual premium to include this coverage is usually significantly lower than what’s available from the sewer or other utility companies. Contact an agent today to learn more.
