I have been using this company for my auto insurance for years now with no complaints and only positive things to say. My rep Daniel Gorman is as professional as they come. He has always gone the extra mile to save me money on my insurance, and if needed will return my calls and emails on the weekends if I have any questions. I highly recommend this company, 5 stars across the board!

We have dealt with the agent, Eric Holle, who answered all our questions and walked us through the application process for a homeowners insurance policy.  He did this with patience and personal attention.  He was  most accommodating and took care of our insurance needs in a very timely manner.  Thank you Coastal Homeowners Insurance Company.

Homeowners Insurance Basic Coverages

Coverage A: Dwelling

Dwelling coverage covers the cost of rebuilding the house itself using like materials. This coverage also includes any permanent attachments, including central air conditioning equipment, heating and plumbing equipment, and similar attached items.

Coverage B: Other Structures

Fences, pools, gazebos, sheds, and other structures that are not attached to your home are covered by Coverage B, other structures coverage. The value of this coverage is usually set to 10% of the dwelling coverage amount but can be changed to a higher coverage amount if needed.

Coverage C: Personal Property

Personal belongings are described as personal property on your home insurance policy. This coverage would include common household items like televisions, furniture, clothing, and other common belongings. Personal property coverage is usually assigned a value of at least 50% of the dwelling coverage on a homeowners insurance policy, but this coverage amount can often be adjusted.

Many homeowners insurance policies cover personal property on an actual cash value basis. What this means is that if your personal property is lost, damaged, or destroyed in a covered claim, your insurer will pay a depreciated value based on wear and tear due to age. Some insurers provide an option for personal property coverage at replacement cost value, which covers your personal property for the full cost of replacement, typically for a slightly higher premium.

Certain types of items, such as jewelry, firearms, furs, and similar items have limited coverage on a homeowners insurance policy. These items can be added to your policy as an endorsement to insure them to their full value.

Coverage D: Additional Living Expenses

If a covered claim forces you out of your home temporarily while your home is being repaired, additional living expenses are covered by Coverage D. This can include the cost of hotels or of eating out and this coverage is designed to cover the difference between your normal living expenses and the higher temporary expenses you experience due to a claim. Typically, Coverage D is equal to 20% of the coverage amount for Coverage A, dwelling coverage.

Coverage E: Personal Liability

Coverage E, commonly known as personal liability coverage, protects you against lawsuits for bodily injury to others or damage to the property of others due to negligence. Coverage amounts typically start at $100,000, although most policies provide $300,000 of coverage or higher. Personal liability coverage on your home insurance also pays for your legal defense, which can be a sizable expense in itself.

Common risks include dog bites and slip and fall accidents, but accidental damage to the property of others is also covered.

Households with pools or children who have friends who visit your home may wish to consider a higher coverage amount. This coverage is available for all family members in the household.

Coverage F: Medical Payments

Your home insurance policy also provides coverage for small injuries to others that don’t involve a lawsuit. Accidents can happen, but many accidents are minor, only requiring basic medical attention.

All Risk vs. Named Peril

A homeowners insurance policy can be either an all-risk policy or a named peril policy, with the difference between the two being which risks to your home are covered by the policy. As its name suggests, an all-risk policy is more inclusive, providing coverage for almost all risks to your home except for specifically excluded risks.

A named peril homeowners insurance policy only provides coverage for the home that is specifically named as coverage items on your policy. Named peril policies also have specific exclusions to coverage while also excluding any risks that are not specifically named as covered perils.

Covered personal property perils may differ from those covered for the dwelling, depending on the type of policy. The five types of policies for single-family homes are HO-1, HO-2, HO-3, HO-3 with HO-15, and HO-8.

HO-1 Basic Homeowner

A basic homeowners insurance policy, sometimes called an HO-1 policy, provides coverage for fire and lightning, as well as wind and hail damage — but being a basic insurance policy, omits coverage for several other risks to homes. Due to consumer demand for broader coverage, this type of policy is not commonly available from insurers.

HO-2 Broad Basic Homeowner

An HO-2 homeowners insurance policy expands upon the coverage provided by an HO-1 policy by adding some additional perils to the coverage for the dwelling: falling objects, roof collapse due to the weight of ice or snow, building collapse, water damage due to bursting pipes or sudden leaks, frozen pipes, and damage from electrical surges.

HO-3 Special Extended Homeowner

Currently the most popular type of homeowners insurance policy, an HO-3 policy provides all-risk coverage for your dwelling while providing coverage for 18 named perils for your personal property. All of the coverages provided by an HO-2 policy apply to personal property on an HO-3 policy. Covered perils for the dwelling itself are limited only by named exclusions.

HO-3 with HO-15 Comprehensive

This type of policy does not limit coverage for personal property to named perils, instead of covering both your home and personal belongings for all perils except for those specifically excluded from your policy. Depending on the insurer, a similar type of comprehensive coverage may also be available through an HO-5 policy.

HO-8 Modified Homeowner

Coverage for historic homes is often provided through an HO-8 homeowners insurance policy, which provides limited coverage similar to an HO-1 policy but is designed to cover homes that may cost significantly more to rebuild than their market value.

About Travis NY

Travis-Chelsea is a neighborhood at the west-central shore of Staten Island, one of the five boroughs of New York City. Some local geographers classify Travis-Chelsea as being on the island’s West Shore, while others reckon it as a Mid-Island neighborhood. It is composed of two areas, Travis and Chelsea, which are often characterized as one neighborhood. It is bordered to the north by Bloomfield, to the east by New Springville and to the west by the Arthur Kill. It is mainly industrial.

Located north of the Fresh Kills along the shoreline of the Arthur Kill, Travis-Chelsea is one of the most isolated and sparsely populated locales on Staten Island, known at times as Long Neck and New Blazing Star Ferry, it became the site of the United States’s first linoleum factory in the 1860s, leading to its being named Linoleumville; however, in 1930, residents overwhelmingly chose to rename the community after Colonel Jacob Travis, whose family had resided there before the linoleum plant opened.

The 1980s saw an expansion of commercial development along the West Shore Expressway, including a giant UA Movie and Bowling Complex; that complex no longer houses a movie theater. The West Shore Plaza was also built into this area with the island’s only Burlington Coat Factory (before this, it was a flea market, Bradlee’s Store and Caldor before that) as the anchor store. Also part of this expansion was a large industrial park called the Teleport located at the eastern edge of Travis-Chelsea. It houses mostly companies engaged in the Internet and telecommunications industries. The service roads of the West Shore Expressway are also the site of many retail and other businesses.

Travis-Chelsea is home to FDNY Engine company 154, which also houses a spare fire engine and Brush fire unit 4. Also protecting Travis-Chelsea is one of the last volunteer fire houses in the city, and second on Staten Island, Oceanic H&L Company No. 1. Oceanic was formed in 1881. This makes it one of the oldest volunteer fire houses in the country. The fire house itself was located on the other side of town and moved down Victory Blvd. by horse to where it resides today.

The building of the UA movie theater complex has changed Travis-Chelsea dramatically over the last decade. Traffic patterns have changed along with new development of homes. Many of the older homes that sat on large plots of land are being torn down and replaced with new row homes. Even with this building boom, Travis-Chelsea has retained many of its characteristics that made it the last frontier on Staten Island. Still standing is the old Tennyson’s confectionery . It now is a balloon and party store, but this once held a penny candy store that was operational for almost one hundred years. This is located across from the Oceanic Hook and Ladder firehouse and was a popular hang out for the town locals, and firemen. Owned by “Snappy” Ed Tennyson, called that because he moved so slow, was handed down to his son in law, Robert Minto Jr. who ran the store just about up to his death in 1986.
