Property & Casualty Insurance/water damage

Question
Is water damage to the wood floor of a home considered damage to personal property  or is it considered damage to the structure?  The wood floor was installed over a concrete foundation.
Thank you.

Answer
Jay:

Once the wood flooring was "installed" or "attached" to your home, it became part of your structure (Coverage A).  Had the wood flooring still been in boxes and not installed yet, it would've been considered a "content" (Coverage C).  Hope this information helps you.
