What You Should Know About the Holidays & Your Homeowners Insurance, High Point, North Carolina

The excitement of the holiday season is often chaotic, sometimes leading to serious accidents that can turn your celebrations into a disaster. Along with extreme weather the season usually brings, holiday decorations pose a significant fire risk, and the stream of visiting friends and family members increases the odds of someone getting hurt. Fortunately, your homeowners insurance policy will protect you from some of the most common threats you face during the holidays. Here’s what you need to know. 

How Your Homeowners Insurance Protects You During the Holidays

Covers Your Roof

Even if your area doesn’t get a lot of snow, ice dams can build up on your roof, eventually forcing water under your shingles and potentially causing extensive structural damage throughout your house. While your homeowners insurance will pay for the damage to your roof, drywall, and personal possessions, you can prevent many of these issues by cleaning your gutters and winterizing your home.

Helps You Recover From Fires

If a defective strand of holiday lights, a dry Christmas tree, or a kitchen accident causes a fire, your homeowners insurance policy will help you recover.

Pays for Personal Injuries

If a guest falls down the stairs or slips on ice on your walkway, their injuries can have serious financial repercussions. If you have comprehensive personal liability, your home insurance policy will cover their medical bills and other losses, minimizing the financial impact and preserving relationships with your loved ones.
