If you haven’t reviewed or updated your home insurance in a while, now is a good time to do so. You don’t want to be caught off guard in the event of a disaster. By reviewing your coverage with a Fida Insurance Group agent, you can see if adjustments need to be made in your policy to compensate for changes in your structure, contents or lifestyle. The beginning of a new year is a good time to update home insurance to ensure you’re protected throughout the coming year.
Is It Time to Upgrade Your Insurance?
If you renovated your home over the last year, you’ll need to include these renovations in your coverage. Major renovations like a new roof, new bathroom or deluxe kitchen remodel could increase your home’s value, making your current coverage insufficient to fully protect your property. Upgrading your dwelling insurance will help compensate for this increased value. By having your home in Monroe, CT reappraised, you can get a better idea of the new value of your property so you can adjust your coverage accordingly.
In like manner, you may have received pricey gifts or made costly purchases over the holidays that need to be added to your coverage. If the limits of your contents insurance are too low to protect these goods, you’ll need to raise them or get additional insurance (an endorsement) to fully protect your valuables.
Liability coverage is yet another area to review on your policy. If you’re entertaining more or having people stay over for extended periods of time, you may need more liability coverage to protect you against accidents.
Benefits of Upgrading Insurance Coverage
