Plans to Remodel your Home? Why you Need to Contact your Insurance Agent

As a homeowner, you may want to do some home remodeling to update the look of your surroundings or are planning to sell soon and want to add value to put it on the market at a higher price. While this sounds like a great idea, before you get started, it’s important to review your homeowners insurance policy to make sure your planned upgrades are covered.

If you have significant upgrades, especially structural, your insurance agent needs to know. You could have an increase in coverage to protect the new dwelling. You never want to be put into a situation where you have a loss and need your insurance to kick in, only to find that your losses won’t be covered because your additions or changes to the original policy weren’t done. Time and time again, homeowners don’t take the time to review their policies prior to remodeling and find themselves in a bind when something happens.

Don’t be one of those instances. Although you may end up paying more money, it will be worth it in the end. For more information, contact North American Advantage Insurance Services.
