Primary Coverages of your Home Policy:
Coverage A – Dwelling
This coverage is the physical house itself. It covers your entire home’s structure from the ground up.
Keep in mind that it is not the house’s value but also the land, location, and all the features.
Coverage B – Separate Structure
This covers structures that aren’t connected to your house; it can either be a shed, a detached garage, the fence around the house, or a pool not attached to the house. Anything that is disconnected from the home will be your coverage B.
Cover C – Personal Property Coverage
This covers your personal property in your house. It helps pay your damaged properties due to being destroyed, stolen, or damaged due to a covered peril.
Coverage D – Loss of Use
This covers any living expenses incurred because of a loss. The loss can be your kitchen caught fire, and it doesn’t serve its purpose because it is being remodeled, then all of the expenses during that time will be covered.
