Homeowners’ Insurance and Fence Installation

Homeowners’ Insurance and Fence Installation

Fence installation is a messy endeavor. It could potentially leave damages behind even after the project is over.

Homeowners’ insurance is one of the most important parts of protecting your home. Fence installation is a messy endeavor. It could potentially leave damages behind even after the project is over. Let’s find out more about how this is all supposed to work. 

Fence Coverages 

First of all, let’s look at the types of damages that are covered under your homeowners’ insurance policy: 

Falling Trees 

Trees tend to fall over, especially in bad weather. However, there are limits to the protection against trees that fall down on your property. Fence installation can take longer than you expect if such hazards exist, and the policies generally only cover issues associated with healthy trees; sick or dying trees are typically not covered. 

Wind and Hail

Even though spring is coming, we are still in the grip of winter weather. What this is that some days the wind will be much higher, making the day feel colder than it is. It’s also likely that freezing rain could turn into sleet or even hail. Regardless, weather damage to your new fence should be covered, especially if it is destroyed by Mother Nature and you need to have a new one installed in its place. 

Vandalization 

You never know what could happen in your neighborhood. Bored vandals looking for a bit of mischievous fun might decide to leave their “mark” on your fence. Luckily, this type of superficial damage is included in most homeowners’ insurance policies pertaining to fence installation. However, one catch is that you need to file a police report. That way, your insurance company has some documentation to follow up on when the time comes. In fact, you might not be able to claim the money owed you without this form of paperwork. 

Vehicle Accidents

Finally, vehicle damage to your fence should also be something included in your policy. If it isn’t, then it might be time for an upgrade or revision to your current plans. After all, it’s much better to be safe than sorry!
