Does Umbrella Insurance Cover Property Damage?

At Colling Insurance Services Inc. in Lakewood, CO, we ensure that our umbrella insurance policies cover what homeowners care about most. That being said, every policy is different, just like every homeowner’s needs are different. Generally, you might wonder what umbrella insurance policies cover regarding property damage. As you keep reading the article below, you will find that we have an answer to that question.

What does umbrella insurance cover?

An umbrella insurance policy may cover a combination of liability, property damage, and other considerations for those with a home insurance policy. If you reach the limit of your existing policy, an umbrella insurance policy might be able to help pick up the rest of the bill for repairs or related costs if they happen under certain qualifying conditions.

The point of umbrella insurance is to serve as an “umbrella” that gives you an extra layer of protection for metaphorical rainy days. When difficult events like certain qualifying natural disasters hit your home, your umbrella insurance policy may be able to assist you with rebuilding by covering some of the property damage. Of course, this all depends on the policy’s terms and the limits set on both your home and umbrella insurance policies.

In the best-case scenario, your standard home insurance policy will cover the damage, and you will not need to rely on your umbrella insurance to cover some or all of the costs. In the worst-case scenario, most of our clients are thankful to have the foresight to purchase umbrella insurance before this kind of emergency strikes so close to home.
