Don’t get sunk. Consider sinkhole coverage.
Sinkhole insurance from an agency you can trust.
Even with your homeowner’s insurance, you’re still at risk in the event of an earthquake. A specialty earthquake insurance policy can help bridge the gap in coverage, keeping your home and possessions protected.
Is your home at risk of sinkhole damage?
You should never assume your existing homeowners policy will cover sinkhole damage. Home insurance policies in some states cover “catastrophic ground collapse,” but this usually has heavy restrictions and only covers the most dramatic sinkholes. If your policy does mention covering sinkholes, check if it is restricted to natural phenomena. If so, sinkholes relating to mining won’t be covered, for example.
Coverage that fills in the gaps of your homeowners policy.
Around a fifth of the land in the United States is at risk of sinkholes. This is most commonly because limestone or similar rock beneath the surface dissolves. When this happens, the results can range from minor cosmetic damage in road surfaces to the sinkhole swallowing up a car or even causing part of a home to collapse.
Don’t get caught off-guard without sinkhole coverage.
Sinkhole insurance is one of those insurance policies where there’s a low chance you’ll need to make a claim, but if you do it could be for an extremely large amount. That’s why having this coverage as a backup is essential so that if you home is ever damaged or destroyed by a sinkhole, you can recover.
