How to find cheap home insurance in Nebraska

Home insurance is an optional — but important — product that works to keep your belongings safe in the event your home suffers damage from common incidents. A homeowners insurance policy defends your dwelling, personal property, and other buildings from a number of calamities, including wind damage, fire, theft, vandalism, and more.

Unlike auto insurance, homeowners policies aren’t controlled by state legislation. Even so, major discrepancies exist in home insurance rates from state to state. Insurance policy costs by state vary based on the total number and value of home insurance claims made across the state, and depend on the value of the belongings and home insured on the policy.

The easiest way to find affordable homeowners insurance in Nebraska is to get quotes from multiple insurance companies. Learn average home insurance rates in Nebraska via the below breakdown. Your rates may vary, depending on your coverage details.

Tornado insurance in Nebraska

A tornado can hit without much warning. There isn't much that can be done to prepare and the outcomes can be devastating. As such, it's vital to insure your home against tornadoes in Nebraska, which averages 55 tornadoes per year.*

Tornado damage is usually the result of wind, so verify your current homeowners policy includes some form of windstorm coverage, a standard feature of any average homeowners policy.

Wind protection covers the exterior and overall structure of the building. Depending on your policy type, interior damage may only be covered when it's caused by exterior damage, like a tree branch breaking a window. Also covered are detached structures, usually up to 10% of the home’s insured amount. Please note that other damages resulting from the storm may not be covered. For instance, if your home is damaged from flooding that occurs from the same storm that produces the tornado, your home won't be covered unless you've previously added flood insurance to your policy.

Homeowners insurance and hail in Nebraska

Depending on your location, hail can result in varying degrees of destruction to your property. In Nebraska, homeowners policies typically come with hail coverage to insure the structure of your home if it's damaged by a hailstorm.

If your home is located in an area that is notably prone to hailstorms — such as Nebraska, which endured 309 incidents of hail in 2018* — it’s crucial to double-check the details of your insurance policy to see exactly what's covered and what's not — some insurance companies charge more expensive deductibles for hail-prone areas and make exclusions for cosmetic damage, so if your home is damaged but still functional even with aesthetic flaws caused by a hailstorm, your insurer will probably not cover the costs to repair it.
