Yes. Under some circumstances the insurance company would "absorb" the deductible if the claim for that particular line of coverage exceeded that policy limit. Also, there are some policies out there that do not have a deductible if it is "scheduled personal property", e.g. Rolex Watch, Musical Instruments, Oriental Rugs.

You have insurance on your home but no replacement insurance What does this mean?

HOAIt means our policy is based on actual value rather than replacement cost. It means that the insurance company is not guaranteeing you the replacement of your home if it burns down. For example, your insurance policy limit is $200,000, but the cost of replacing your home is $210,000, if you had a replacement policy, the insurance would pay for the replacement of your home despite the fact that your insurance limit is only $200,000. However, the insured value at the time of the loss is usually required to be at least 80% of the replacement cost before your policy is covered on a replacement cost basis.

It depends on the specific provisions of your coverage; if you only have liability insurance, then no. If you have comprehensive coverage, then they will still only cover the cost above your deductible. Some insurance companies will cover windshield replacement with no deductible if you use their preferred repair company and agree to repair (rather than replace) the window if possible, but this is not universal. You should call your agent and ask.

What is the average cost of Allstate home insurance?

If you equate "cost" and "premium", the answer depends upon many factors. These include: 1. The location of the property within a state. 2. The state in which the property is located. 3. The history of claims by the policyholder under prior homeowner's policy. 4. The type of construction of the house (brick, frame, etc.) 5. The age of the house. 6. Whether the insurance provides actual cash value or replacement cost coverage. Actual cash value coverage takes into account depreciation when determining how much will be paid, whereas replacement cost coverage allows for the payment of the actual cost of reconstruction. 7. The dollar limits of insurance purchased. 8. Whether contents coverage is provided. This refers to insurance on the contents of the house, such as furniture and fistures. 9. The amount of the deductible selected. A deductible is the dollar amount of damage that the insured has to pay before the obligation of the insurer to pay is triggered. These factors apply to all homeowner's insurance policies, not just through Allstate.
