Does homeowners insurance cover flooding or water damage? Do you work with insurance companies to minimize the cost and hassle?

Homeowners insurance provides coverage for damage that is sudden and accidental (such as water heater ruptures or pipe bursts). However, flood damage, no matter the source of the water, is NOT covered by standard homeowners’ policies.
