Typical exclusions and limitations
found in many homeowners policies


We want you to know more about your insurance protection. As good as they are, most homeowners policies leave coverage gaps that can expose the typical family to serious loss. We encourage you to study this list. If you feel that you may have uncomfortable gaps in your insurance protection, give us a call.
  1. Your homeowners policy may not fully pay the cost to rebuild your home, particularly at today's prices.

  2. Under the typical homeowners policy, the reimbursement you receive to replace or repair damaged property may be only a fraction of the actual cost of the item because insurance companies apply "depreciation" (the company's judgment of how much value you received from the item before it was damaged).

  3. If you own a recreational vehicle, it may not be properly insured.

  4. Your boat may not be properly insured.

  5. Work tools used away from home and kept in your car or truck, at a job site or plant may not be covered.
