I’m remodeling my home, do I need to inform my insurance company?

Many people will take the opportunity of the warmer weather to make some home improvements. When you undertake these home remodeling jobs, there are a lot of things to consider. How much is your budget? What can you do yourself? Who can help you?

There is one thing that you may not even think about when it comes to your home improvement projects. That is to let your insurance company aware of what you are doing. Why? Well, there are several reasons. First, if you are using professional help or even the assistance of friends and relatives, you will be liable for any accidents and potential injuries. A chat with your insurance agent can help bring you peace of mind that you are properly and sufficiently covered.

The other reason to contact your insurance agent is because any significant improvement is likely to increase the value of your home. You will want to make sure this improved value is covered in your homeowners insurance policy is well.
