Standard Colorado homeowners insurance coverage
Curious about the coverages that typically come with standard Colorado homeowners insurance? Here they are:
- Dwelling: A standard Colorado homeowners insurance policy should include enough dwelling coverage to pay for the replacement or repair of the home if it's damaged in a covered peril.
- Other Structures: Other structures such as detached garages or sheds would also be protected from covered perils by a standard home insurance policy.
- Contents/Personal Property: Offers reimbursement for the belongings inside your home such as furniture, electronics, clothing and other personal property, if they're stolen or damaged by a covered peril. For special items such as expensive jewelry, art, or collectibles you can schedule an endorsement to provide full coverage for those items.
- Loss of Use: If your Colorado home is damaged in a covered peril, Loss of Use coverage pays for alternative accommodations and living expenses while your home is uninhabitable.
- Personal Liability Protection: Offers financial protection in the event someone is hurt on your property and plans to sue you.
- Medical Payments: Reimburses you for medical bills if someone is injured on your property and doesn't sue you.
Does your coverage stand up against Colorado weather?
As CO residents, you should be aware of the severe weather that can threaten your area. Colorado sees tornados, wildfires, and even flooding despite being a very dry state. In fact, in September 2013, parts of Colorado were devastated by floods.
While standard homeowners policies provide coverage for most weather related perils, earthquakes and flooding are typically excluded. For flood coverage homeowners should purchase a separate policy through the National Flood Insurance Program. Every homeowner should consider flood insurance even if they don't live in a flood plain. Many of the areas devastated by the Colorado flooding weren't in flood plains either, which means it can happen anywhere. Learn more about the National Flood Insurance Program and make an informed decision.
