If you already have homeowners insurance, do you know which coverage you have or which one you should have? Below we talk about coverage that you should have in order to be fully protected. Every home needs full protection. This is especially true in the state of Florida, which is prone to floods and hurricanes. Let’s dive in.
This is basic in any insurance and perhaps this term is familiar to you if you relate it to car insurance. It is the guarantee by which third parties are protected by your actions, and in the case of home insurance, they would also be protected from the actions of the people who live in the house and the house itself. That is, the CR protects your neighbors from the damage that you can cause them by: breaking a pipe, suffering a fire, or any other unintentional accident that may occur in your home and affects the house of a neighbor.
Now, you have to consider damage caused by meteorological phenomena: rain, strong winds, heavy snowfall. Natural phenomena are practically unpredictable and in vulnerable areas such as coastal cities, hurricane areas or high concentrations of snow, it is important that your insurance protects your home from any accident caused by bad weather.
Objects of Special Value
This does not necessarily apply to everyone, but if this is your case, it is best that your policy is broad enough to protect your objects of special value: works of art, paintings, skins, antique objects, or precious metals. It is important that, at the time of contracting the policy, you tell your insurance advisor that you have objects of special value, so that they are properly insured.
Theft in the Home
One of the worst situations that can occur in your home is that robbers enter to steal. Not only because of the belongings that can be stolen, but because of the feeling of vulnerability that this event usually leaves. To deal with theft in your home, having a good policy that covers you will always be a benefit for you. Not only to compensate for the damage or replace your belongings, but because, with a good policy you can even have access to psychological assistance if necessary.
Get a Good Policy
Finally, remember that home insurance is not a matter that should be taken lightly or motivated solely by the price. Don’t get carried away by the cheap home insurance. Check all your options and the guarantees offered to you, and make sure you choose the option by which you are best protected. Speak to someone at a Florida Insurance Agency and discuss your situation so you can choose the best policy.
