Why did the Limit on my Dwelling/Building Increase?August 16, 2022
Barton Mutual employs an automatic increase feature in most of our policies. Sometimes known as inflation guard, this feature increases your dwelling/building coverage when the policy renews to help keep up with inflation and the rising costs of building materials and construction. Though we increase your dwelling/building coverage annually, this is no guarantee your dwelling/building is adequately insured. It is the responsibility of the policyholder to determine adequate coverage. Contact your agent if you need help determining the adequate coverage amount for your property. It is also important that you notify your agent if you make significant changes that increase the value of your property.
This information is meant to be a broad overview and should not be the only source you consult for evaluating insurance coverage or purchase. The description of coverages and programs are purposely brief and are subject to specific policy provisions, limitations and exclusions that can only be expressed in the policy itself. For a complete explanation of coverages, please consult one of our licensed agents.
