A Must Read to Add to Your Winter Reading List

Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority of Saskatchewan (FCAA) reminds Saskatchewan homeowners to review their insurance policy coverage so they are not caught off guard if a winter-related disaster strikes their home.

“It’s important that people know their insurance coverage because not all policies provide the same coverage for winter issues,” FCAA Director of Insurance and Real Estate Ian McIntosh said.  “Homeowners should contact their broker or agent immediately if they have concerns and questions on what their coverage entails.”

To minimize winter weather damage, take preventative measures and clear snow away from your home’s foundation, windows, and furnace exhaust pipes, insulate exposed water pipes, and check the roof for potential ice dams.

The insurance policy tips will be shared via twitter @SKGov and www.facebook.com/SKGov and are available atwww.fcaa.gov.sk.ca/insurancecoverage.
