What Does Homeowners Insurance Cover ?

Homeowners coverage helps limit your financial losses if your house or its contents are damaged, destroyed, or stolen, for a budgetable yearly premium. If you are adequately insured, homeowners insurance shifts the bulk of the liability exposure to the insurance company. Depending on your policy, if your possessions are lost or damaged by fire, theft, vandalism, storm or another covered disaster, your homeowners insurance can help replace, rebuild or repair the asset. It can also pay damages if someone is hurt while on your property. Generally, flood damage is not covered under homeowners policies and must be purchased separately as a seperate rider.
