Homeowners insurance includes different types of coverages For example, dwelling protection covers your home and other structures attached to it, like a garage, porch, or deck You can also get coverage for other buildings on your property that are separate from your home Then, if your home or other structures are damaged by one of these perils, your homeowners insurance can help you make repairs, or, if necessary, replace it If your home is too damaged to live in, additional living expense coverage helps pay for the cost of rent, hotel, food and other increases in living expenses

Most of your belongings are covered too, if they're stolen or damaged If someone injures him or herself on your property, you may be obligated to pay for their injuries and legal costs Or if you or a family member injures another person or damages their property, you could also be responsible for the costs Family liability protection can help protect you from out-of-pocket financial loss for those damages, and guest medical protection may help pay for some medical expenses if a guest, including a babysitter or someone you've hired, has an accident in your home Allstate also offers other coverages to further protect your home and family
