Answer: No, never
Explanation: In general, water damage from a burst pipe inside your home will be covered by a home owner's policy. If an outside pipe bursts & causes damage, that should be covered as well, but you must be able to demonstrate that the damage was caused from the burst pipe. If the problem is from poor drainage (a non-covered maintenance problem),your claim may be denied.
