Common Homeowners Insurance Questions
What is home insurance?
Your home represents one of the most important investments you will ever make. That value alone is worth protecting, and homeowners insurance will help you do so.
You never know when a hazardous event or natural disaster might occur at your home. It can cause extreme damage and cost thousands of dollars.
However, as a homeowner, you will want to make the necessary repairs to your property without a huge financial strain. Homeowners insurance will pay these recovery costs on your behalf so you can move on from life’s challenges without it costing yourself an arm and a leg.
What does home insurance cover?
Homeowners insurance policies offer a diversity of benefits, each designed to offer targeted protection for a diversity of unexpected, unavoidable issues. These include:
Structure protection: This insures your house in the event of damage from fires, weather, theft, vandalism or other hazards.
Detached structures coverage: Other buildings on your property – such as fences, carports, gazebos and detached garages - will have coverage.
Possessions insurance: This pays for damaged belongings. Protection might cover everything from furniture to food in the pantry and computer systems.
Liability coverage: If you accidentally harm someone else or damage their property, you can use this coverage to repay them. Coverage will often pay for incidents both on and off your property.
Additional living expense protection: Do you need to move out temporarily after household damage? Let this coverage reimburse you for expenses like dining or hotel bills.
Plus, because your home is unique, you can further tailor your benefits with more unique options like:

What is home renovation coverage?
- Home renovation coverage, or dwelling under renovation coverage, is a type of insurance that people commonly get if they’re undergoing a home remodeling project. The coverage includes:
Construction material coverage: This helps cover building materials and tools used to remodel your house if they are damaged or stolen.
- Foundation collapse: This helps insure your house against damage due to hydrostatic pressure, which can sometimes cause basement walls to collapse during renovation or construction.
How much home insurance do I have to buy?
