If you plan on doing the renovations yourself and you have a comprehensive home insurance policy, your policy should also cover any damage that you may accidentally cause to your own home or belongings, or to those of your neighbours. For example, if you live in a condo and you're the one who accidentally puts a screw in a pipe that causes damage to the units beneath you, your personal liability coverage should pay for any resulting damage to your neighbours' property.
For more information on how renovations may affect your home insurance coverage, speak with one of Square One Insurance's licensed agents or visit www.squareoneinsurance.ca.
