Pennsylvania homeowner's insurance companies recommend you carry 100 percent replacement coverage on your home in case of a loss.
Tips for Your Protection
When you receive a Pennsylvania home insurance policy, read it thoroughly, making sure you understand its contents. The policy is a legal contract, so do not sign anything until you have clarified anything you do not understand. Ask the agent or insurance company about anything about which you have questions.
Check all agent/company licensing. It is illegal for unlicensed insurers to sell Pennsylvania homeowner's insurance. If you conduct business with an unlicensed company or agent, you have no guarantee that coverage will be honored, or you will be protected if the company goes out of business.
Shop and compare. Prices can vary greatly for the same coverage, so do your homework!
Set deductibles as high as possible. This will save you money on your Pennsylvania home insurance premium.
Ask about all available discounts. Some Pennsylvania home insurance companies offer premium discounts for installing safety items in your home such as deadbolt locks, smoke detectors, fire extinguishers or fire alarms. Other discounts include those for multiple policies, excellent payment/low claims histories, and a discount for senior citizens, to name just a few.
Check with your Pennsylvania insurance agent or company at least once a year to review your home insurance policy and ensure you have adequate coverage. As needs and conditions change, so should your home insurance coverage.
Getting an Accurate Quote
It is critical to provide the same information to each Pennsylvania home insurance agent when asking for a price quote. This ensures accurate quotes for the same coverage through multiple ensurers.
Most Pennsylvania insurance agents request the following information:
"What determines how much my home insurance will cost?"

Others include the type of construction used on your home (brick, frame, etc.), the age of your home, your home's distance from fire protection, the amount of coverage you are seeking, the height at which you set your deductible, and any discounts the insurance company provides.
