I know home insurance covers some natrual disasters and not others. What about wildfires?

Generally speaking, yes. Fire is a covered peril on most standard home insurance policies, and this includes wildfires. However, if you live in an area where wildfires are common, coverage may not be available, so be sure to check your policy or consult your insurance provider.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
