Homeowners Insurance Endorsements to Consider

Consider these coverages to add on to your home insurance.

Your homeowners insurance is designed to protect you when the worst happens. For the most part, it does. However, every policy has limitations and exclusions. The best way to protect y our property is to know what your policy excludes and how to fill those gaps. Home insurance endorsements can help. Take a look at common home insurance endorsements to consider.

  • Scheduled personal property

While your home insurance will cover your belongings, your high-value items may not have enough coverage to be replaced if they are lost in a peril. Scheduling your property with a rider helps to ensure that your expensive belongings, such as jewelry, art, antiques, musical equipment, and more are covered from disasters.

  • Sewer backup

A sewer backup can be caused by anything from clogged drains to damaged sewer lines – and it can cause sewage to back up into your home. Just a few inches of this can quickly ruin your property. Since sewer backup coverage isn’t always included in standard home insurance policies, adding it as an endorsement is a smart move to make.

  • Home-based business

If you’re thinking of launching your own business from your home, be sure to talk to your insurance agent first. Business activities, even small-scale ones, are not covered by standard home insurance policies. This means that your business property is vulnerable. You may be able to add a home-based business endorsement to your home insurance policy instead of purchasing a full commercial insurance policy.
