For many people, a home is the largest single purchase they’ll ever make - certainly, it’s one that is crucial to your way of life. You need protection for that all important asset that will help you get peace of mind as it protects your most important possession.
At Regional Insurance Services, we’ve been in the insurance industry for over 30 years. We don’t believe in the cut and paste approach - we'll work with you to find the solution that’s right for you for home insurance or condo insurance.
What to Expect with Home Insurance
Typical home insurance coverage includes:
All risks - just as the name suggests, it covers damages to your home and the property in it from all risks other than named exceptions.
Named perils - less expensive than All Risks coverage, this may include losses from damage due to fire, theft and water damage only or other specific perils.
The mid-range alternative - priced somewhere between All Risks and Named Perils, this type of coverage usually includes All Risks on the building and some Named Perils on the contents.
Additional Living Expenses - if you have to leave your home temporarily because of damage.
Personal Liability - this will cover damage to other people's property while on your premises and other people harmed while they are on your property as in a slip and fall situation.
Improvements and Betterments - coverage for upgrades to amenities that you have purchased beyond the builder’s standards, for instance upgraded kitchen cabinets, carpets, and so on.
Optional Home Insurance Coverage
Some types of coverage are optional and can be added on to a standard home insurance policy. This type of additional insurance can include damages caused by:
Furnace oil spills
Your personal possessions are covered no matter where you are, for example the possessions you bring with you on holidays.

We’ll Help with the Details
There are many details to consider and we’ll use our experience to give you the best possible advice, including options that may help you save on premiums or ensure adequate coverage for what’s important to you.
Actual Cash Value or ACV vs. replacement value - when loss or damages occur to the property you have in your home, you can insure it for its ACV, which is the purchase price less a certain percentage of depreciation based on its age, or for its full replacement value as a new purchase. This will affect your premiums.
Jewellery and furs - and other luxury items may not be covered under a standard policy, or coverage may be limited to specific amounts. We’ll help determine what level of coverage you need and any additional riders that may be required.
