DRD Insurance works with carriers to find our clients affordable home insurance for California homes.
How Does Home Insurance Work?
When purchasing home insurance, it’s important to know how much coverage you need. To calculate that coverage, you need to know the replacement value of your home. The replacement value of your home considers the cost it would take to replace the structure and its amenities. With the replacement value of your home, choose the amount of coverage it would take to replace your belongings in case of disaster. Home insurance covers:
- Structure: Damage to the structure of your home by fire, smoke, lightning, hail, theft, vandalism and other perils may be covered under homeowners insurance.
- Personal Belongings: Personal belongings on the policy are covered from the same incidents as the structure of the home. You can add additional coverage for valuable items such as furs, art and jewelry.
- General Liability: General liability steps in if you or a family member causes bodily injury or property damage to someone else.
- Additional Living Expenses (ALE): ALE helps with the expense of living elsewhere while your home is being repaired or rebuilt after a disaster.
You can choose to receive either the actual cost value or the replacement cost value of your lost belongings. Actual cost value provides compensation to replace the item with one of similar quality and little to no depreciation. Replacement cost value provides similar compensation with consideration for depreciation.
