What's Included in Standard Georgia Homeowners Insurance

- Loss of Use: In the event your home is damaged or destroyed by a covered peril, Loss of Use coverage will help coveralternative accommodations and living expenses while you're unable to live in your home.

Preparing your coverage for Georgia weather threats
The Peach State comes complete with beautiful coastline, breathtaking mountains and charming cities. However, it also comes with some severe weather that could seriously threaten your home, whether it’s in Marietta or Augusta. While Georgia doesn't sit in Tornado Alley, it's still quite prone to twisters. The capital city of Atlanta made the Weather Channel's list of top 10 tornado cities and Atlanta alone has been hit by more than 70 tornados. Standard Georgia homeowners insurance typically comes with wind coverage and you'll want to keep that coverage in case a tornado rips through your neighborhood.
Georgia can also be victim to hurricanes and while wind coverage is usually standard, flood coverage is not. Georgia homeowners who live in an area susceptible to flood should purchase a flood policy through the National Flood Program. Click here to check whether your neighborhood lies in a flood hazard zone.
Whether you reside in Athens or Columbus, as a homeowner in the state of Georgia, you should review your current policy and see what perils are covered and which are not. An adjustment in coverage may be necessary in order to keep your home fully protected.
