Buying a home is the single, largest purchase most people will ever make. Therefore, it is important to make sure your home and its contents are properly insured. Homeowner’s insurance provides coverage you can rely on, ensuring that your most valuable possessions are restored to the same or better condition they were in before a loss occurred.
We’re often asked why a homeowners policy with replacement cost is a big deal. This is crucial for contents and your actual home’s structure. Should a loss occur, you will want to be “made whole” as soon as possible, and will want your home and/or contents replaced as quickly and easily as possible, to the same level they were before the loss occurred. If your homeowners insurance policy has your home and contents covered at replacement cost, then you will be able to have them replaced as just outlined. This is a MUST that we believe should be included with every policy, which is why we strongly suggest this type of coverage.
Let’s say that a nasty spring storm brings with it high winds, hard rain and even hail. During this storm, your roof is damaged to the point that it is leaking and causing problems inside your home; the realization sets in that the roof must be repaired, and possibly needs to be replaced. If your insurance policy provides for actual cost, then you’ll be subjected to receive actual cash value (ACV). The formula for this situation is ACV = cost to replace the roof – depreciation. This represents the dollar amount you could expect to receive for the roof, after wear and tear are factored in. Replacement cost coverage means that the insurance company will pay the full cost to repair or replace the damaged roof, using new materials that are of the sime kind, style and quality as the damaged roof.
