The 5 Most Common Types of Losses and How to Protect Your Home

A home is one of the largest investments you make. Aside from money, you invest time, energy, and memories. Here at Bacon Insurance Group in Richmond, VA, we know how important your home is to you. We want to help you protect it.

Here are the five most common losses and the steps you can take to protect your home:

1. Wind and Hail Damage

When the weather report indicates high winds, take the time to tie down or put away any outdoor furniture or lawn ornaments. Park cars in the garage to avoid hail damage and regularly have your roof inspected. 

2. Water Damage and Freezing

Notice a leak? Turn off the water to your house until the cause is found and addressed.  Winterize your home to make sure your pipes are ready. Check with FEMA  to see if you are in a flood zone. 

3. Fire and Lightning

Make sure your fire alarm batteries are regularly changed. Avoid leaving candles, plugins, or wax warmers unattended. 

4. Liability

To avoid injury to guests on your property, be aware of anything that poses a risk. If you cannot fix them, tell your guests about them and do your best to find ways around them. 

5. Theft

Invest in a quality home alert system. Leave your porch light on at night to discourage curious eyes. Communicate regularly with your neighborhood watch.
