Homeowners insurance in Wisconsin: Why you need it
Wisconsin experiences severe thunderstorms several times a year, along with ice and snow storms in the winter. Especially this year, the state's residents have experienced bouts of extreme, bitter cold.
Wisconsin's name means "grassy place," so it's no wonder that the state is surrounded by water. A standard Wisconsin homeowners insurance policy can protect against the perils listed above, but it does not cover flooding. Consider purchasing a separate policy through the National Flood Insurance Program if you live near a floodplain.
Home insurance premiums in Wisconsin
Homeowners in Wisconsin are paying around $764.00 for home insurance as of April of 2015. Premiums have decreased since March when Wisconsin homeowners insurance premiums were approximately $768.00.

Save on Wisconsin homeowners insurance premiums
Wisconsin may be "America's Dairy Land," but homeowners insurance in the state shouldn't cost you a lot of cheddar. It's a fact: Homeowners who adopt a DIY bent can miss out on many of the discounts for which they might qualify.
Common price breaks include:
- Bundle: One of the easiest ways to save is purchasing your auto insurance and your Wisconsin homeowners insurance from the same carrier. You could lower your premiums by up to 20%.
- Fire safety: Even in a state with so much water, it pays to be fire conscious. Providers typically offer a price break for homes with sprinklers or smoke detectors.
- Nonsmoking: Homeowners also can earn savings if none of the members of a household smoke.
- Retiree: Providers sometimes give discounts to retired homeowners, aged 55 and older.
- Claims history: If you haven't filed a claim within the last 10 years, you could earn a price break.
Standard homeowners insurance coverage
Wisconsin homeowners insurance quotes pledge to protect more than the structure of your home. In fact, there are 6 main types of protection in a standard policy. They are:
- Dwelling and Other Structures: Any structures on your property, whether attached to your home's structure (Dwelling) or not (Other Structures) are safeguarded by your homeowners insurance policy.
- Personal Property: Your policy protects the contents of your home up to the limits of your coverage from disasters such as fire or wind as well as from theft. Milwaukee's burglary rate is higher than the national average, according to the 2012 FBI Report on Offenses Known to Law Enforcement, although Green Bay and Madison have lower-than-average burglary rates. You may need to schedule an endorsement for certain high-value items.
- Loss of Use: When a covered peril such as wind, hail, or fire damages your house and forces you to move out while repairs take place, your provider can help pay the hotel and restaurant bills that you accrue.
- Personal Liability: If someone sustains an injury on your property and takes you to court, home insurance can help pay for your legal costs and the final judgment.
- Medical Payments: Your policy can help pay the medical bills of a non-family member who becomes injured on your property but who doesn't take you to court.
