Don't Improvise When it Comes to Your Coverage!
April is Jazz Appreciation Month and with Philadelphia being the home of some of Jazz's most notable musicians, we want to make sure our local musical traditions continue! Part of that is making sure our clients musical instruments are properly covered. Contact your agent today to discuss covering your musical instruments, your homeowner's policy may not provide enough coverage and may not respond if the loss occurs during a paid performance!

    Advice from our Agency: Updates to your Home


    It may be Jazz appreciation month but don't let your party blow the roof off. With the weather warming up you may be considering some updates to your roof. With a harsh winter behind us having your roof looked at is important to prevent the spring showers from coming inside! Heavy snowfall can cause damage & ice damming, creating sudden issues in the event of heavy rains. Not only is roof-work good maintenance, it can also provide a discount on your homeowner's policy! Having your roof replaced might lower your homeowner's premium by a few hundred dollars!

    Don't forget to let us know if you are doing major updates to your home so we can keep your policy up to date.
