Get Insurance Savvy
In Kentucky, there are two main types of homeowners' insurance. A named
peril policy provides coverage for a specific list of events, and an
open peril policy provides coverage for all events except those named
in the exclusion clause. The latter likely costs more, but protects your home
against more events.
