At San Marcos Insurance Group, serving the greater Chandler, AZ, we are committed to helping homeowners find the right home insurance policies for their needs. One of the best ways to do this is by answering homeowners’ questions about their policies. We are often asked what other structures mean in a home insurance policy and why it is vital to ensure your homeowners’ insurance policy covers your other structures. Read on to get the answer to this question.
What Are Other Structures?
Regarding home insurance, other structures refer to the structures on your property that may not be attached directly to your home. Some examples of different structures include detached garages, sheds, barns, gazebos, pools, hot tubs, driveways, sidewalks, fences, and permanently installed or anchored docks.
Why Is It Important to Ensure Your Policy Covers Other Structures?
Most home insurance policies cover other structures, but not all of them do. As such, it is important to review your policy and find out if other structures are included or excluded from your policy. If your policy excludes them, you may have to pay out of pocket if an unexpected event damages these structures. Reviewing your policy helps you to understand what is and is not covered.
If you have other structures on your property and are unsure if they are covered, the San Marcos Insurance Group team, serving the greater Chandler, AZ area, can help you determine if they are covered. If they are not covered, we can help you find a home insurance policy that covers them. Call or email us today to schedule an appointment to discuss your home insurance policy.
