How Is High-Value Home Insurance Different From Traditional Mass Market Home Insurance?

High-value home insurance policies are crafted with intelligent and valuable coverages and enhancements to meet the needs of your lifestyle.

Here are some details:

  • Increased policy limits are available in high-value home insurance for money, jewelry, landscaping, personal contents and business-use items

  • Broader perils / coverage for items like fine arts, memorabilia, antiques and wine collections

  • If an insured chooses to rebuild after a loss, coverage is available for increased construction costs after a claim due to bylaw compliance requirements.

  • While most traditional insurance policies limit the amount of coverage available for additional living expenses, our high-value policies offer unlimited additional living expenses on home, condo and renters policies. 

  • Our high-value policies offer full cash, replacement cost settlement options without depreciation for both the home and personal contents in the home (without any requirement to rebuild/repair the dwelling or replace any of the contents)

  • High-value policies include a custom on-site reconstruction cost home appraisal.  All appraisals are performed by highly skilled & trained professionals. These appraisals will used to determine the Insured value of the home and ensure the coverage is sufficient to rebuild the home in the event disaster strikes.
