Frequently Asked Questions About Home Insurance

Navigating home insurance can bring up many questions. Below, we've compiled answers to some of the most common inquiries we receive at Poco Insurance. For personalized advice, we encourage you to speak directly with one of our knowledgeable insurance agents.

Is my Jewelry or Fine Art covered?

Standard home insurance policies place coverage limitations on certain valuable items, such as jewellery and fine art. For example: Jewellery is often capped at $6,000 to $10,000 per claim. For those requiring higher limits, it can often be purchased for an additional premium.

Does Home Insurance Cover Earthquake Damage?

Earthquake Coverage may be added as an optional endorsement onto many home insurance policies. The premium and deductibles associated with earthquake coverage vary depending on your home’s location and susceptibility to earthquake damage.

Does Home Insurance Cover Water Damage?

Home policies typically include various subcategories of water coverage. Some are automatically included in your base policy, whereas others must be added as an endorsement. Below are the Four primary Water Coverage Subcategories: Water Damage - protects against burst pipes or sink overflow and is standard in most policies. Sewer (Septic) Backup - Covers against the accidental backing up of a sewer or drainage system. Overland Water (Flood) - covers water from pooling rainfall, or the overflow from fresh water rivers, lakes, and streams. Ground Water - protects against sudden water penetration into a home's foundation or basement.

Why Do I Need Home Insurance?

Considering your home is likely the most significant investment you'll make, protecting it—and the contents within—is crucial. The cost to rebuild a moderate sized home, and replace its contents, can easily exceed one million dollars. Home insurance safeguards your assets by transferring this financial risk to the insurance company. Additionally, most mortgage companies require a home insurance policy to be maintained at all times.

How Much is Home Insurance in Port Coquitlam?

The cost of home insurance is influenced by a variety of factors, including the homeowner's age, financial and insurance history, the home's location, age, size, and construction quality. The type of coverage selected and who occupies the property also play a role. Premiums can range from as low as $600 for a small, owner-occupied home with basic coverage, to over $10,000 for a large, luxury property.
