Do You Need to Upgrade Your Home Insurance Coverage?

You could miss out on valuable protection if you renew your home insurance annually without reviewing your coverage. Home renovations may not be covered, or significant home purchases may not be protected because you haven’t added these to your policy. At Alloy Insurance Partners in Dallas, TX, we recommend reviewing your policy before renewing to ensure you still have accurate coverage. Here are some reasons you may need to upgrade your policy.

Home Renovations

Major home renovations like kitchen remodeling or adding a new bathroom to your home can increase the value of your property. This could make your current dwelling coverage insufficient to cover the cost of rebuilding your home in the event of total loss. You may need to increase your dwelling insurance to reflect your home’s new value.    

Major Home Purchases

Property insurance protects your belongings. Significant purchases you’ve made in the last year, such as a new sound system, flat-screen TV, or pricey furniture, will affect your property coverage. Depending on your coverage limits, you may need to boost your property insurance to protect these big-ticket items fully. 

Adding a Dog to Your Household

Dogs add joy to a household and increase the risk of injury to others, as your pup may bite or attack visitors to your property. You may need to upgrade your liability coverage to ensure you’re protected against incidents that may occur with your dog.

Home Business

Starting a home business may require a total revamp of your insurance protection, as your home policy may not meet your business needs. Depending on the nature of your home business, you may need a separate commercial insurance policy.
