Answer some questions to see your rate. If you're a condo owner or tenant, you may be eligible to buy your insurance online.
Your home insurance premium is the price of your insurance. It's the amount you pay monthly or annually to maintain your coverage.
Your home insurance policy is the contract you have with your insurer. It outlines what situations and losses are covered by your insurance.
Your deductible is the amount you have to pay out of pocket when you make a home insurance claim. Example: Let's say you have a $500 deductible, and you incur a loss that's covered by your policy. If the repairs cost $5,000, you pay the first $500 and your insurance pays the remaining $4,500.
An endorsement is a change to your home insurance policy, such as the addition or removal of coverage.
For example, above-ground water and weight of ice, snow or sleet (Endorsement 42) coverage extends your protection in the event of sudden or accidental damage caused by the weight of snow or ice as well as rain or melting snow seeping in above ground through places like the roof, doors or windows.
Premium increases could be due to reasons under your control, such as:
- You purchased valuable items
- You had major renovations done that impact the cost to rebuild your home
- You changed how you use your home
- You bought an older home or have not renovated in many years
- You filed a claim
It might also go up for other reasons, such as:
- Climate change
- Rising costs of materials and labour
- More frequent and costly water damage
Have questions about your premium? We're always here to help find a solution that's right for you. Renewal is a great time to contact us and review your options to make sure you're getting the right coverage at the right price.
