Protecting Your Home From Earthquakes

Living in an earthquake-prone region brings with it additional responsibilities in terms of protecting your home and property. Earthquakes are unpredictable natural events that can cause considerable damage to your property. That's why purchasing earthquake protection for your home is essential to protect your investment and ensure your peace of mind. In this article, we explain everything you need to know about earthquake insurance and how it can complement your existing home insurance.

What is earthquake protection?

Earthquake protection is additional coverage that can be added to your existing home insurance policy. Unlike standard home insurance, it offers specific protection against damage caused by earthquakes. In the event of an earthquake, this insurance will cover the cost of repairing or rebuilding your home, as well as replacing damaged property inside.

Why do I need earthquake insurance?

Some regions of the world are more prone to earthquakes than others, but that doesn't mean that seismic shocks can't happen. Even in areas considered low-risk, an unexpected earthquake can cause significant property damage. Unfortunately, most standard home insurance policies exclude earthquakes from their coverage, which means that without specific insurance, you would be responsible for paying in full for any necessary repairs.

What does earthquake insurance cover?

The extent of earthquake insurance coverage may vary depending on your insurance provider and the level of protection you choose. As a general rule, this insurance covers structural damage to your home, including the foundation, walls and roof, as well as property inside your home, such as furniture, electronics and other personal items.

Purchasing earthquake insurance is a smart way to protect your home and belongings against potential earthquakes. While no one can predict exactly when an earthquake will occur, being prepared and insuring your home properly can save you from crippling financial expenses in the event of a natural disaster.
