Five Outdoor Space Insurance Considerations

June 30, 2013

Protect with homeowners insuranceWhile you’re planning your big Fourth of July cookout food and drink menu, you may also need to think about insurance. Insurance? Yes, according to the insurance experts over at the Equifax Finance blog. Many of us enjoy outdoor entertaining during the warm months, and have made outdoor entertaining space improvements or additions to the home. But are those spaces adequately insured?

In the recent Equifax Finance blog article, “

5 Reasons to Update Your Homeowners Insurance This Summer,” we get five scenarios in which you may want to review your homeowners insurance policy.

  • If you’ve made recent outdoor home improvements – new additions may or may not be covered
  • If your outdoor property is in poor condition – if someone hurts themselves on your property, you could be liable
  • If you need different coverage – you may need bodily injury protection
  • If you need more coverage – you could purchase an umbrella policy on your existing coverage to expand your protection
  • If it’s been a while since you reviewed your policy – you might be missing out on savings/discounts
