Home insurance is what lets homeowners sleep at night. It protects the place you and your family enjoy your lives. If you already have a home insurance policy, have you ever read it? If, like most people, you haven’t, don’t feel bad. It would be enough to put you to sleep. But it does include some vital information about the things excluded from the policy. At Rock Insurance Agency Inc. in Medford, NJ, we make sure our customers have all the facts about their home insurance policy.
Probably the most shocking news to most homeowners is their policy does not cover flooding. Flooding causes devastating damage, and even just one inch of water in the home can cost you $25,000 in damages. The good news is you can purchase flood insurance through the NFIP.
If you feel the earth moves under your feet, you should be anxious because your home insurance will not cover it. Whether it is an earthquake, landslide, or a sinkhole, any time the earth moves, it is excluded, but you can buy an endorsement or an additional policy to cover it.
This is a disgusting thing to even think of and even more so when you have to pay for the cleanup yourself. Again, you can add an endorsement.
Your insurance carrier assumes you are going to maintain your home. If you allow your roof to become so old that it allows water to damage your ceiling, your insurance won’t cover it. If you get termite damage, this is something treatment could have prevented, so no coverage is standard. This is an excellent reason to do the necessary repairs and maintenance to your home.
