That’s why it’s so important to have Louisiana homeowners insurance in Leesville. Getting quality insurance protects you from having to pay for damage out of your own pocket. Let’s take a look at just how a policy from Kin*covers your home.

What does Leesville homeowners insurance cover?

Homeowners insurance in Leesville, LA is designed to protect you from having to pay for losses resulting from common perils, such as fire, theft, and windstorm. Policies via Kin typically have six coverage to protect different areas of risk. These are:

  • Replacement-cost dwelling coverage that helps you pay for repairs if the structure of your home is damaged or destroyed by a covered peril.    

  • Other structures coverage, which is triggered by damage to a structure other than your dwelling, like a sidewalk or a shed.

  • Personal property coverage to help replace damaged belongings, such as clothing, furniture, and fixtures.    

  • Loss of use coverage that may help you pay for living expenses over and above your typical costs if covered damage makes your home temporarily uninhabitable.

  • Personal liability coverage to protect your finances if someone accuses you of causing their property damage or bodily injury.   

  • Medical payments coverage that can cover a portion of your guest’ medical bills if they’re injured on your property.

All of these coverages pertain to both the standard portion of the policy as well as the hurricane portion of the policy. That’s right, all Kin homeowners policies automatically come with hurricane coverage. Just choose your hurricane deductible to finalize your policy details. 

How much does homeowners insurance in Leesville cost?

While Louisiana is one of the most expensive home insurance states in the country averaging $1,968 in premium annually, chances are most Leesville homeowners don’t see premiums quite that high. The town is situated far enough from the coast that it hasn’t seen as much damages as cities closer to the Gulf.  

But you should note that location is just one of several factors that impact home insurance premiums. Insurance companies may also look at your home’s: 

  • Age.

  • Square footage.

  • Unique features and amenities.

  • Attractive nuisances.

  • Construction and framing type.

These and other characteristics may come into play when calculating premium – and that’s a good thing when you work with Kin. The premium on a policy purchased through Kin is based on lots of insurance data, which means it more accurately reflects your home’s risk. This can often lower your home insurance costs.
