Yes, exterior damage to your home can be covered by our policies. For example, if something happens to your windows, the home's foundation, and of course, the roof, you will be covered.

Homeowner's insurance can cover everything from damage to the inside of your home to its outside to personal assets. It can even cover you – protecting you in case of a personal injury.

Does My Local Fire Department Impact My Homeowner's Policy?

Yes, The Insurance Services Office (ISO) rating of your local fire department will affect the cost of your homeowner's insurance. The ISO analyzes how your fire department is prepared to protect the local community and, therefore, your home.

What Are the Different Types of Home Insurance Deductible Options?

Regarding home protection, 'deductible' refers to the amount of money you would like to pay towards an insured item before the insurance company steps in. The deductible can be a set amount or a percentage of the full policy cost, depending on the provider. Usually, the higher your deductible, the cheaper your home insurance policy is.

Does Homeowner's Insurance Protect My Valuables?

Usually yes, but certain items such as heirlooms may need a separate policy. Homeowner's insurance covers the interior and exterior of your home, your personal belongings, and other assets in the house. In most homes, these policies cover all of your valuables.

However, if you own valuables such as art, antiques, designer items, or fine jewelry, you may have to pay a premium, or they may need to be separately insured. We can help as we provide special Valuable Items cover

What Does a Home Insurance Policy Not Cover?

Homeowner's insurance does not cover everyday damage or wear. So if your belongings, electronics, or appliances stop working because they are old or poorly maintained, they will not be covered by your policy. Home insurance policies are usually for emergencies only, such as flooding, theft, or fire.

Similarly, most policies do not cover your valuables when you take them out of the house. For most providers, these valuables need to be specifically outlined in advance or separately insured.
