You’ll want to closely consider what perils your home needs to be protected against.

This is especially important when it comes to potential damages from flooding. Many insurance companies make a distinction between different types of flooding, such as overland flooding, storm surge floating and tidal flooding.

Many policies also include “exclusions”. This means that while you may be covered for one peril, another may be excluded. For example, you may be covered for fire damage, but earthquake damage is an exclusion.

Speak with a licensed broker to figure out what sort of coverage makes the most sense for your home, its location and your lifestyle.

Which specific perils should I get home insurance coverage for in Niagara Falls?

Insurance rates are affected by location. Providers will always try to gauge the risks that are most common in your area.

Some common perils you’ll want to consider include damage from fire, wind and theft.

Homeowners are increasingly interested in coverage that will protect their homes in the event of a flood.

Speak with a licensed broker to figure out what sort of coverage makes sense for you: 1-855-754-0350.

Ask them about the nuances of flood coverage. For example, you can get coverage for overland flooding, sewage back up or tidal flooding.

In Niagara Falls, it’s unlikely that you’ll need tidal flooding coverage because it provides coverage for damage caused by salt water.

A licensed broker will make free recommendations about what coverage makes the most sense for you and your home.

How can I reduce the cost of insurance for my house in Niagara Falls?

Homeowners can reduce their insurance costs by taking steps to minimize risks to their property, for example:

Installing an alarm system to prevent theft.

Making sure your roof is in good condition.

Updating the home to prevent falls. For example, by installing railings where appropriate.

Upgrading the electric and plumbing systems.

Quitting smoking. Insurance providers consider house fires more likely in smokers’ homes.

To bring down your rate further, consider bundling your policies so that each is held with a single provider.

You can also increase your deductible. However, only do so if it’s likely that you’ll have cash available to pay for damages when they arise.

How is condo insurance different from home insurance?

The differences between home and condo insurance are mostly in name.

However, the home you live in — whether it’s a house or a condo — will affect the type of coverage you need.

Condo buildings themselves often have insurance policies. However, that coverage is unlikely to extend to your specific unit. You’ll need a policy for your condo specifically.

Connect with a licensed broker who has the experience and expertise to help you determine what coverage makes the most sense for your home and lifestyle.
