“Having cathedral or vaulted ceilings may slightly increase the rate of your insurance policy.
The dwelling portion of a homeowners insurance policy covers the replacement cost of the primary structure. Since a cathedral ceilings use more materials than a standard ceiling, it will cost more to replace.
Between materials and labor, the cost of a cathedral ceiling is around $18,000. This seems like a lot, but if your dwelling coverage is $300,000, $18,000 more will not increase the premium that much.
You will want to answer any questions about your home honestly to make sure you are adequately covered. Be sure to include things, like:
- high-end appliances
- upgraded kitchens
- upgraded bathrooms
If you don’t include these, there is a chance you will end up with builder’s grade replacement if there is a loss.
