Once you have selected a base policy for your property insurance in Edmonton, there are still other important decisions to be made. You can choose additional coverage to enhance your policy. Some of these options include:
Sewer back-up protection protects you from losses resulting from the back-up or escape of water from a sewer, drain, sump pump, septic tank, eavestrough, or downspout. This coverage is relatively inexpensive and can prove to be invaluable in the event of a loss.
We recommend that all customers carry a minimum liability limit of $2,000,000. For higher liability limits, Personal Umbrella Liability policies are available for additional limits up to $5,000,000.
Provides coverage due to water damage caused by the overflow of a lake or river, heavy rain or rapid snowmelt that occurs at ground level or above. You cannot control the weather, but you can be ready with preventative insurance like this.
Identity theft can hurt you, your credit, and your finances. There are identity theft protection policies available which cover you and anyone under the age of 21 in your household.
This coverage means the insurance company will pay the full cost of replacing your home even if the amount exceeds your policy limits. Please be aware that there are several stipulations to be considered.
We recommend reviewing your homeowner’s insurance coverage annually, especially if you make any improvements to your home.
