Informing Your Broker About Home Renovations

Your home insurance policy is designed to cover your home as it stands. That includes its replacement value, as well as any additional features, like swimming pools, signage, landscaping, garages, etc.

When you actively make changes to your home, such as finishing a basement, remodelling your kitchen, or adding a wood deck to your backyard, you are altering your home from how it was when you first purchased your policy. This means that the overall value of your home has changed as well.

Here’s why and when you need to inform your broker about home insurance renovations.
