Homeowners Insurance

Whether it is in Providence, Warwick or another city, for most of us, our home is our biggest asset and we need to protect it well.

Plan now and be protected later with homeowners insurance you can count on!

Your Personal Insurance requirements are exactly that……Personal!  Of course, you need Homeowners Insurance, but just to fit your home, not your neighbors or your friends from across town.  Your home is bigger or smaller, with more bedrooms or not so many.  It has a basement or is on a slab and has a built-in garage or perhaps none at all.  It has 5 bathrooms or just one.  In short it is entirely different than almost all of the other homes that you are familiar with.

Providence, Rhode Island’s harsh winters and unpredictable summers can present unexpected home maintenance issues. If you are not prepared, these costly expenditures can put you in a precarious position. Luckily, this doesn’t have to be the case. With the right home insurance plan, you will have the help you need to pay for repairs and replace expensive items.

* Theft Protection – A thief doesn’t think about how broken windows and stolen appliances can seriously impact your life. From replacing costly electronics and jewelry to fixing broken windows and damaged locks, your homeowners insurance can help cover items and that are stolen or damaged during a break-in.

* Natural Damages – It is hard to beat a blue-sky day in Providence. Unfortunately, not all days offer such pristine beauty. In the event your home is damaged due to fire, wind, rain or lightning, your homeowners insurance will help you repair your home.

* Hotel Expenses – Can’t stay in your home due to damage? When a disaster forces you to find shelter elsewhere, the last thing you want is to be counting pennies to pay for a bed. Your homeowners insurance will help you cover the cost of hotel expenses.
