What Does All This Mean? Let Us Explain.
Tell me why!
The name of your home insurance policy used to be “fire insurance,” but that doesn’t give this coverage full credit! A homeowner’s insurance policy covers so much more than just losses resulting from fires. It protects you from a variety of risks, including natural disasters and accidental damages to your property, as well as losses resulting from them!
When you’re looking to protect your home, it’s essential that the insurance policy covers everything. Our Homeowner’s Insurance policies are designed for this very purpose, so there will never be any surprises when disaster strikes and cover:
- Your Residence
- Detached structures (garages, workshops, sheds, fences, dog kennels, etc.
- Your Belongings, including when you’re away from home
- Living expenses
- Personal Liability
- Medical Expenses
The Two Types of Coverage for Home Insurance
There two types of coverage for your possessions under your Homeowner’s Insurance policy, Actual Cash Value, and Replacement Cost.
- Actual Cash Value means that you can get paid out based on what it would have originally cost if they were destroyed or damaged but not both at once;
- With Replacement Cost Coverage, the insurance company will cover your loss up to a maximum dollar amount. This is better for you as a homeowner because it covers all of the cost of replacing property that has been damaged or stolen from an event such as a fire.
It is important to insure your home appropriately and ensure that you have enough coverage to rebuild your home if it gets completely destroyed. A good rule of thumb for getting a handle on how much protection is right for you is that the limit should equal what it would cost to replace everything from floors and windows up – including materials and labor costs!
The replacement value is calculated on a “cost per square foot” basis: take the square footage of your house and multiply it by an average cost for buildings in that area. Your insurance agent should be able to help you calculate the replacement value.
