How much coverage is needed?

The amount of coverage that you need depends on what it would cost to replace your home in the event of a total loss. While you may be able to get by with only 80% coverage, you will have to take the other 20% out of your pocket in the event of a total loss. The incremental cost to insure a property to full “replacement cost value” is so low it would be foolhardly not to fully insure  your property  at full value.

 

What are the benefits of HCA?
