We know Michigan's no stranger to extreme winter weather, with some areas receiving more than 200 inches of snow annually. Freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall can do a number on your home — including frozen (and potentially burst) pipes, roof damage, and more.
Luckily, most homeowners insurance companies, including Esurance, provide coverage for damage to your home and belongings caused by burst pipes or the weight of ice, snow, or sleet. They also cover a whole host of other hazards.
According to the Insurance Institute of Michigan, the state experiences an average of 16 tornadoes each year, typically in May, June, July, and August. Fortunately, a standard homeowners insurance policy covers your home against damage caused by tornadoes and other windstorms, in addition to a host of other weather-related perils:
Your Esurance policy literally goes above and beyond the structure of your home, providing protection for the things that make your house uniquely yours. When you grab a quote for homeowners insurance, you'll see several coverages that come standard with your home policy in Michigan.
Living in the Wolverine State, you're likely used to hot summers, freezing winters, and even a tornado or 2 — in fact, Michigan averages 12 of those a year. Fortunately, if a covered risk like wind, hail, or even fire damages your well-loved abode, your coverage can help pay to repair or rebuild it.
If you're ever temporarily forced out of your home due to a covered loss, this coverage is sweeter than a Michigan cherry. It helps cover your meals, hotel bill, and other reasonable expenses for up to 12 months (up to your coverage limit), or until you're able to go home.
Other home coverages that come standard in the Wolverine State include:
For even more protection for your house in Michigan, it's wise to consider some additional coverages to your homeowners policy.
Chances are you've got at least a few pieces of jewelry, family treasures, and other costly knick-knacks in your house. Fortunately, we offer high-limit coverage on items that might exceed the limits of basic personal property coverage.
And that's not all! To help you get the most from your policy, Esurance also offers optional coverages such as identity theft expense coverage, eco upgrade coverage, building codes coverage, and golf cart coverage. For more information about additional coverage options, give us a ring at 1-866-439-5633. Our agents are here to help at these times.
