Understanding Replacement Costs

Replacement cost is the amount of money it would take to replace, repair or rebuild your home with materials of a similar kind and quality as the original without any deduction for depreciation.
Replacing your home and its contents can be expensive so it’s important your policy has replacement cost coverage for both the building and its contents. For example, if you television is stolen, your standard homeowners policy would cover the purchase price less depreciation. If your policy included replacement cost coverage, you are covered for the cost to replace the television. Depreciation or inflation would not matter.
While most personal property may be covered, antiques and other rare items are subject to the actual cash value provisions of the policy. Actual cash value is equal to the amount you would receive for the item if you sold in the marketplace.
