As a homeowner, you know the value of your home and the memories it holds. But have you considered what would happen if a disaster struck your home tomorrow? Are you confident that you have the right insurance coverage to protect you from damages and total loss? These are crucial questions to ask yourself, especially as major insurance carriers may put a hold on new clients prior to a forecasted natural disaster or weather event.
At our agency, we understand the importance of having the right protection for your home. Our experienced representatives take the time to ensure that you have the coverage you need, so you can have peace of mind knowing that your insurance carrier has your back in times of crisis.
Home insurance is designed to cover the hazards that most homeowners face. In the event of a loss, you can file a claim with your insurance carrier and be reimbursed for the expenses, minus any deductible amounts. Home insurance also provides personal liability coverage, protecting you from situations that could result in lawsuits from others, such as injuries that occur on your property.
But did you know that home insurance can also protect you from other potential expenses? These may include damages caused by storm, fire, windstorm, lightning, hail, dog bites, manufactured home coverage, trampoline or swimming pool liability, wind damage, sinkholes, flood damage, sewer or septic backups, replacement cost for personal property, and umbrella liability insurance. Having the right home insurance policy can ensure that you are protected from unexpected expenses that could arise from these situations.
There are several aspects of home insurance that many consumers may not be aware of. Our agency is here to help you avoid potential problem areas, such as:
Sewer backup is usually not covered unless you purchase a special endorsement.Damages caused by surface water or water that flows below the surface of the ground are typically not covered.A standard homeowners policy does not usually include flood insurance.A standard homeowners policy may only cover jewelry up to set limits if the loss resulted from one of the perils named on the policy.Many policies default to actual cash value, which may not fully reimburse you for the current value of your possessions in the event of a claim.

What does home insurance cover?Home insurance typically covers damages to your home and personal belongings caused by covered perils such as fire, windstorm, theft, and vandalism. It also provides liability coverage in case someone is injured on your property and you are found liable.
How much home insurance do I need?The amount of home insurance you need depends on various factors such as the value of your home, the cost to rebuild it, and the value of your personal belongings. It's important to accurately assess the replacement cost of your home and belongings to ensure you have adequate coverage.
Are my personal belongings covered under home insurance?Yes, home insurance typically includes coverage for your personal belongings, such as furniture, appliances, and clothing. However, there may be limits on coverage for certain high-value items, such as jewelry, antiques, and electronics. Additional endorsements or separate policies may be needed to fully protect these valuable possessions.
Do I need home insurance if I have paid off my mortgage?While home insurance is not legally required once you have paid off your mortgage, it is still highly recommended to protect your home and belongings against unexpected events, such as fire, theft, and liability claims. Without home insurance, you could be left with significant financial losses in case of a covered event.
What should I do in case of a home insurance claim?In case of a covered event, it's important to notify your insurance provider as soon as possible and provide them with all necessary information and documentation related to the claim. It's also advisable to take photos or videos of the damages for documentation purposes. Your insurance provider will guide you through the claims process and help you with the necessary steps to file a claim and receive appropriate compensation.
