Homeowners Insurance

Homeowners insurance provides financial protection against disasters. A standard policy insures the home itself and the things you keep in it.

Homeowners insurance is a package policy. This means that it covers both damage to your property and your liability or legal responsibility for any injuries and property damage you or members of your family cause to other people. This includes damage caused by household pets.

It is important to know that homeowners insurance is meant to cover unexpected damage, not routine maintenance. Ask your agent to talk about what is covered and be sure to read your policy so you know exactly what's included and what is not.

Builders Insurance

Builders Risk / Course of Construction Insurance

The importance of builders insurance is often overlooked when construction is under way.

Any major remodeling of your home or business should be considered for builders risk insurance to avoid coverage gaps.

Auto Insurance

Auto insurance protects you against financial loss if you have an accident. It is a contract between you and the insurance company. You agree to pay the premium and the insurance company agrees to pay your losses as defined in your policy.

An auto insurance policy is comprised of six different kinds of coverage. Most states require you to buy some, but not all, of these coverages. If you're financing a car, your lender may also have requirements.

Most auto policies are for six months or a year. Your insurance company should notify you by mail when it's time to renew the policy and to pay your premium.

Business Insurance

 Interruption & Bonding

Business insurance is specifically designed to protect your business from financial consequences when property damage, circumstances or errors and omissions create legal liability.

Business income interruption and extra expense coverage protect you from the loss of income that may be created by a claim. Proper bonding can actually help a business increase its revenue while protecting its reputation. Ideally your business insurance is designed to protect you as the business owner as well as the business itself.
