What Doesn’t Homeowner’s Insurance Cover?

Though home insurance is made to protect your investment, the truth is that it won’t cover everything. Because of that, you need to make sure that you talk to someone to make sure that your investment is protected. Barry Insurance Group in Pearland, TX encourages you to learn more about your homeowner’s insurance. 

What Doesn’t Homeowner’s Insurance Cover?

Earthquake and flood damage. Most typical homeowner’s policies don’t cover earthquakes and flood damage. If you live in an area where earthquakes or floods are common, you may want to add that coverage to your homeowner’s policy. 

General maintenance. If you don’t take care of your home, your homeowner’s insurance may not cover any damage that occurs. If something breaks that could have been prevented, if you had taken care of your home, you may have to pay for the repairs yourself. 

Limits on personal property. Your homeowner’s policy will set limits on how much it will actually cover. It will cover your possessions up until a point. If your jewelry, artwork, or electronics are high-end, you may want to add an umbrella policy to your insurance to make sure that it covers everything. 

Your business. If you run your business out of your home, it won’t be covered under your homeowner’s policy. You will need a separate business insurance policy to make sure that you are covered. 

In order to make sure that you are fully protected, you need to talk to a professional. Here at Barry Insurance Group in Pearland, TX, we would be glad to sit down and talk to you about your options. We want to make sure that you have enough insurance, in case anything happens. We don’t want you to lose your home over something that could have easily been prevented.
