That said, let’s look at the aspects of your home that are covered in a standard homeowners’ policy.
If the wind blows a section of your roof away, your homeowners’ policy will definitely cover the cost of repairing the part of the roof that has been damaged, but what if the some of your personal belongings — say furniture, electronics, jewelry, or clothes — are destroyed due to exposure to external elements? The answer is yes. While policies vary from one provider to the next, most of them cover personal items such as clothes, furniture, appliances, sports equipment, etc. if they are destroyed by an insured disaster.
Usually, there are conditions when it comes to the coverage of personal belongings. In most cases, coverage is extended to 50-70 percent of the coverage you have on the dwelling. Valuable items such as jewelry, art, collectibles, and fur are covered up to a certain limit. You can get additional coverage for your jewelry or expensive art.
