The home insurance policy is one of the most misunderstood policies that an individual can purchase. Many changes to this type of insurance policy have occurred through the years to expand what is covered and also to clarify what the policy excludes. Our dedicated protection team will guide you through this selection process to make sure you are comfortable with the various provisions and coverages within the homeowners’ policy.
To be very clear, the ultimate purpose of homeowners insurance is to enable the homeowner to rebuild his or her home and life, even in the event of total destruction.
A good homeowners insurance policy will cover:
- Your residence
- Any detached structures, like garages or garden sheds
- Your personal belongings
- Additional living expenses in the event of a loss
- Personal liability for your actions
- Medical expenses to others who may be injured on your property
- Damage you may cause to the property of others
Our staff at Pembina Insurance Services will provide you with the most comprehensive policy available on the market today which will help to put your life back in order in the event of a catastrophic loss.
Not all home insurance policies are alike. To be sure, there are many insurance companies in the market today that will quote an inexpensive policy but most of them are only giving you the “bare bones” coverage. When quoting your home insurance premium, we will use a full replacement cost valuation to be sure that you can replace your home in the event of a total loss.
We will also make sure you are clear about any areas of the policy that have limitations and exclusions. Protection for such things as sewer back up is excluded from the policy but may be purchased separately at renewal time. Coverage for overland water and ground water seepage can also be added, as well as for your underground service lines.
One of our carriers also offers coverage for equipment breakdown for such items as your furnace, washer, dryer, fridge, etc.
Other items such as jewellery, coins and collectible items have limitations in the policy but can be added by providing appraisals and paying a small additional premium.
Discounts are available for newer homes, monitored alarm systems and higher deductibles.
