MONEYGEEK EXPERT TIP

Dwelling coverage protects you from the cost of damage to your home's physical structure. You should get enough coverage to pay for rebuilding your home.

It's possible to estimate your rebuilding cost with your insurance company's help. However, you can also hire a professional home appraiser to help you assess the cost of rebuilding your home.

Factors like your home's age, structure, design, the material used and other important details are essential in determining your home's replacement cost.

Extended replacement cost, guaranteed replacement cost and inflation guard coverage could be wise investments for extra protection over time.
