Typical Homeowner’s Policy Coverage:
Damage to your Home’s Physical Structure (Dwelling Coverage)
This is your core coverage over a designated set of loss situations, to help you pay for the messes that sometimes happen. All policies come with a deductible, so it’s important to look at your budget and see what you could come out of pocket for a loss on any given day. We usually never see these things coming, so it’s best to cover your bases.
Extended Replacement Cost Coverage
This will help pay for unexpected repair or rebuilding costs that exceed the coverage of your dwelling/building replacement cost coverage within your policy.
Other Structures Coverage
Damage to other structures like a garage or shed
Personal Property Coverage
Coverage for your personal belongings – whether they are in your home or elsewhere during the incident.
Loss of Use Coverage
This will provide additional living expenses if necessary in the event of a covered complete loss.
This covers you in the event someone is injured, or their property is damaged, by you or a family member.
Extra Coverage for Valuable Items
The definition of protection under a typical homeowner’s policy is quite broad, and includes coverage for your furniture, clothing, and appliances along with limited coverage for jewelry, silverware, furs, and firearms. Most likely the things most important to you, such as the stone falling out of your diamond ring, your antique statue that is accidentally broken, or a flooded basement that damages your deep freezer, will slip through the cracks of an ordinary policy. In fact, most homeowners policies set dollar limits on the amount of protection offered to cover the theft of items such as jewelry or furs (usually only up to $1,000), firearms (up to $2,000), or silverware (up to $2,500). Optional add-on coverage to your homeowner’s policy enhances coverage by providing higher limits and expands protection for special property. There’s a nuance to choosing the right coverage, learn the basics of Valuable Articles (aka Floater).
