what’s covered by homeowners insurance?

Same as with auto insurance, the specific terms of your homeowners policy depend largely on the coverages you choose. But basic homeowners insurance in South Carolina typically offers:

  • Dwelling protection to help cover the cost of rebuilding your home after damage from a natural disaster, vehicle crash, or other incident
  • Personal property coverage for your damaged or stolen valuables
  • Liability protection to help safeguard your finances if someone is injured on your property
  • Additional living expenses (like for a hotel and food) if you have to temporarily relocate due to a covered risk

If you finance your home, your mortgage company will likely require at least basic homeowners insurance. But even if coverage isn't legally required for you, having protection like the ones mentioned above is the surest way to solidify your house, finances, and family's future in the face of unpredictable risks.

The National Hurricane Center deems South Carolina the fifth-most vulnerable state in the U.S. for hurricanes. Given the havoc these storms can wreak, this info is enough to (understandably) put homeowners on edge.

Thankfully, homeowners insurance should help residents in your state, from Abbeville to York County and everywhere in between, keep their cool. With coverage against hail, heavy winds, and other stormy side-effects on your side, you can take comfort knowing you can recover from hurricanes (even if you can't prevent them).
