What do you need to know about Pennsylvania Homeowners Insurance?
Not all homeowner’s insurance policies are created equal. Some basic provisions are standard across all policies. Insuring your home helps protect you financially if you suffer a loss due to fire, theft, vandalism, or other covered events. It will also cover you in the event someone is injured while on your property and wins a legal judgment against you.
It is important, though to be aware of what your specific policy will cover. Do you know if you are covered if your finished basement is 2-feet deep in water? Here are some helpful hints in obtaining and maintaining the proper coverage for your home:
- Take your time – though many commercial insurance companies offer homeowners quotes in minutes, it is best to take the time to assemble and review your policy. Better to take the time now, than discover a mistake in the event of a claim
- Keep your insurance in mind when improving your home – swimming in your new pool or lounging on your new deck, it’s easy to forget your insurance. Make sure that any improvements done to your home are updated with your insurance company and are covered under your policy.
- – Work with an agent! – An agent or independent broker often has the experience and tools to be able to advise on and service your policy with you and help you avoid any mistakes.
- Shop comparatively – Price is important, so it’s best to periodically review your coverages and how much you pay. Insurance carriers want your business, so it is to your advantage to see what other companies can offer periodically.
At Volko Insurance Agency, we use these techniques to find our clients the coverage they are looking for: we go through your current coverage in detail and shop your information with over a dozen companies. Once your policy is in effect, we have the tools and superior service skills to maintain your policy and make sure that it is up to date and is competitively priced.
The Right Coverage. The Right Price. The Right Value.
The amount you pay for your homeowners insurance depends on many factors. Think of your personal housing situation, and the assets you want to protect.
Protection for Your Home
Property or Dwelling Coverage typically pays to repair or rebuild your home if it’s damaged or destroyed by an insured event like a kitchen fire or windstorm.
Protection for You and Other People
Personal Liability Coverage applies if someone is injured or their property is damaged and you are to blame. The coverage generally applies anywhere in the world.
When choosing your liability coverage limits, consider things like how much money you make and the assets you own. Your personal liability coverage should be high enough to protect your assets if you are sued.
This covers medical expenses for guests if they are injured on your property, and in certain cases covers people who are injured off of your property. It does not cover health care costs for you or other members of your household.
Additional Living Expenses
If you can’t live in your home because of a covered loss, your home insurance policy will pay additional living expenses-commonly for up to 24 months-while damage is assessed and your home is repaired or rebuilt.
Protection for Your Belongings
Your home is filled with furniture, clothes, electronics and other items that mean a lot to you. Personal Property Insurance helps replace these items if they are lost, stolen or destroyed as a result of a covered loss.
Scheduled Personal Property Coverage
If you have special possessions such as jewelry, art, antiques or collectibles you may want to talk to your agent about this additional coverage. It provides broader coverage for specific items.
If You Rent Out Your Home
Landlords may have the option to buy optional liability coverage for the risks posed by tenant-occupied dwellings. Visit our Landlord Protection Insurance page for more information.
Doylestown – Protect the Things that Matter to You
Make an inventory of your home and personal belongings. If possible, make a list as well as take photos or video – using two inventory methods can help expedite the claim resolution process. Keep this list somewhere other than your home. Keep in mind that your policy doesn’t cover damages caused by poor or deferred maintenance on your part.
