I'm looking for my first home insurance policy and I'm not really familiar with how home insurance works. In what ways can my coverage be canceled?

The most common reason for your homeowners insurance to be canceled or non-renewed is submitting frequent claims. Most companies will drop you or not be able to offer you a quote if you’ve submitted two or more claims within a five-year period.

Other common reasons why you can be denied homeowners insurance or issued a cancellation notice include having a vicious breed of dog (or a dog with a bite history), having an unsecured pool and/or spa, having a trampoline, and having an older roof with lifting or missing shingles.

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👍
