Understanding Your Insurance Coverage

(ACV) Actual Cash Value

Is the cost to repair or replace an insured item of property at the time of the loss, less depreciation. The value of depreciation is based on the age and condition of the item. Personal property, such as contents, is typically settled at ACV unless the insured purchases (RCV) Replacement Cost Coverage. Your ACV Payments is typically the 1st of two checks you receive. The 2nd check will be mailed when job is complete and all invoices are billed directly to your insurance company.

(RCC) Replacement Cost Coverage

Also know as Replacement Cost Value (RCV) is the cost to replace lost or damaged property with new property of like kind and quality at current prices. For an additional premium, it is available for buildings and contents. Some insurers automatically include RCC in the homeowner policy; however, usually it is an optional coverage that must be purchased.RCV = (ACV + Deprecation + Deductible)

Code Coverage

Every city has different code requirements that have to be met so it’s important for you to understand and know if you have code coverage added to your insurance policy. Code Coverage covers you in the event that your city has changed its codes requirements and you have to make an insurance claim.Usually code coverage is an optional coverage that must be purchased in addition to your homeowners insurance.

I have code coverage: Code Coverage covers you in the event that your city has changed its codes requirements and you have to make an insurance claim. If you have code coverage you will not have to pay “increased cost” based on local code requirements.

I don’t have code coverage: In the event that you “do not” have code coverage and your local codes have changed you will be required to incur “increased cost” out of pocket in order to meet your local code.

A homeowner’s insurance policy can provide comprehensive protection against damages to a house and its contents. Colorado law does not require a consumer to purchase homeowners insurance, but if your home is financed, the mortgage company will require coverage to protect their interest in the property.

There are various kinds of insurance including homeowner, condominium, renters and mobile home. All of these provide property and liability coverage. The property coverage will insure against perils such as fire, wind, hail, vandalism, and theft. The liability coverage protects you in the event someone other than the insured is injured on your property.

Keep in mind that the most homeowner policies will not insure you for floods. If you need to purchase flood insurance contact your company representative. Your policy contract will explain all of the insured coverage’s and exclusions.

It is important that you read your policy contract and understand its limitations.

If you have any questions about your homeowner coverage contact your insurance representative or contact us at Eco Roof & Solar!
