Digging in to service line coverage

Many homeowners are surprised to learn that the repair or replacement of service lines on their property — such as underground wiring and piping — is their responsibility, not the service provider’s. Damage to these lines often occurs unexpectedly, and the expenses aren’t always covered in a basic homeowners policy. Service line repairs average roughly $3k to $4k — but can go much higher.
