Insurance Discounts through DIY Protection Home Security in the GTA


"The first cheque you write is for the mortgage, but the second is for the insurance."-The Blind Side

A house will likely be the most expensive purchase and biggest investment you make in your life.  Because a house is such a large and meaningful investment, it also requires a lot of protection.  The protection can come in a lot of forms, but the first piece of protection that everyone with a home absolutely needs is homeowners' insurance.  What exactly is homeowners' insurance and why do you need it?

Homeowners insurance is an agreement between a homeowner and an insurance company to cover a property against damages to the house or its contents.  That could mean protection against damages caused by a fire, damages caused by a flood or even theft of personal property or possessions.  That means that if almost any type of emergency takes place, your house, and your investment, will be covered.  That makes homeowners' insurance absolutely essential. In fact, most mortgage companies and banks require homeowners' insurance to be kept for the entire term you are financing your home in order to even get a mortgage!  Now that you know what homeowners' insurance is and why it's so important, most people will want to know ways they can get the best coverage for the best value.  That's where DIY Protection comes in!

DIY Protection, much like homeowners' insurance, specializes in protecting your home investment.  If you have a home, you need a home security system.  But did you know that having a home alarm system also has great added benefits that will also allow you to save money on your homeowners' insurance? The reason why is simple: Home alarm systems work!  Because home alarm systems protect your home from burglars, your insurance company will offer you a discount.  The deterrent value of a home alarm system alone will make it about three times less likely that your home will be broken into in the first place!
