- Smoke damage
- Windstorms and hail
- Freezing damage
Pays for damage or destruction to your house and any unattached structures and buildings, such as fences, detached garages, and storage sheds.

In certain areas (mostly coastal) of some states, standard home insurance coverage does not cover damage caused by windstorms and hail. Check your policy information to see if windstorm damage is covered in your area.
