Certain factors are taken into account when you file for home insurance. For example, its structure, location, and current condition. Over the lifetime of your home, there will be a lot of changes and possibly even damages. What if you need to do some remodeling? Does your current coverage help with the costs for renovations?
What To Do Before The Renovation?
It’s advisable to contact your agent when you start with your house remodeling. Why? If you are remodeling and making your home significantly more valuable, it could lead you to be underinsured.
For example, if you have an insurance coverage policy that gives you a payout of $300,000 as the value of your home, and you choose to do renovations that make your home worth $370,000 and something happens to your home before you change your policy - you will not be reimbursed the difference.
It means that if you do not evaluate or extend the limitations on your insurance, you will be responsible for any expenditures not covered by your package offer.
What Are The Available Policy Changes?
Before you begin construction on your home, you can consult your insurer about the available changes you can take advantage of. The list below will provide you with varied options.
Your insurer will cover your renovation plans, but if there are high and unaccounted costs, you’ll most likely be underinsured. This is why you have to consult with your agency before starting the construction.
