Why Arkansas homeowners insurance?
Arkansas may seem tame, but the state experiences some of the nation's most tumultuous weather. Located in Tornado Alley, it has borne witness to some of history's deadliest twisters. The state also suffers about 60 days of thunderstorms a year, along with hail and severe winter storms. Luckily, a standard Arkansas homeowners insurance policy will protect from these perils and others such as fire and theft.
As the 'Natural State,' Arkansas is known for its lush flora and numerous lakes, streams, and rivers. In fact, Arkansas means 'the downstream place.' So many prominent water features might make the state beautiful, but they also make it vulnerable to floods, which aren't covered by homeowners insurance. If you live in a floodplain or near a body of water, consider purchasing a separate policy through the National Flood Insurance Program.

Standard Arkansas homeowners insurance coverage
Now that you know what to pay, find out what you pay for. A home insurance policy protects much more than simply the structure of your house. Standard coverage types are:
- Dwelling: This is the coverage you think of when you picture home insurance. It protects the structure of your home from named perils such as wind or fire damage.
- Other Structures: Additional structures on your property detached from your house are safeguarded by this coverage.
- Personal Property: Your policy also provides coverage for the contents of your home.
- Loss of Use: If your home becomes so badly damaged that you're forced to move out while it undergoes repair, Loss of Use can help you pay any hotel or restaurant bills involved.
- Personal Liability and Medical Payments: If someone sustains an injury on your property and decides to take you to court (Personal Liability), your policy can help pay legal costs and the final judgment; if that person does not take you to court (Medical Payments), your policy can help pay any medical bills.
