Questions about Home Insurance Policy

Are there ways I can help protect my home?

Homeownership is a big responsibility, but it can be even more rewarding. You’re ahead of the game with preventive maintenance and know your home will last for years with proper care!

How many homeowners' insurance coverage do I need?

Understanding homeowners’ insurance coverage can be a challenging task for many homeowners. You might assume that the yearly expenses incurred on your house would cover any damage, from a broken pipe to replacing everything in case of disasters like floods or fire.

However, having an agent who is well-versed in their field of research can help analyze and research policies. This ensures that you get the right amount of protection at the best possible price, without any gaps in coverage that can leave you vulnerable to unforeseen disasters.

How can I prevent claims at my home?

To prevent insurance claims, it’s important to be a careful and vigilant homeowner. Recognize any potential hazards in your home before they become a problem.

Should I get an umbrella policy too?

If you are ever involved in an automobile accident and are unsure about who is at fault, it may be a good idea to consider obtaining additional protection.

Additionally, these policies can cover legal fees that may arise.

Do I need flood insurance too?

Flooding is not just a problem for coastal areas, but can happen anywhere, particularly in high-risk flood zones. Unfortunately, many homeowners are unaware that their insurance policy does not protect against flood damage. If you live near a coast, river, or lake, it may be wise to consider purchasing coverage for your home. While these types of storms rarely make headlines, they cause significant financial losses each year. We are here to assist you in making informed decisions about insurance policies that will provide comprehensive coverage, whether the damage results from windstorms, fires, hail, or rain.
