Juniper Hill Ranch Barndominiums recommends obtaining Barndominium Insurance for your Barndominium.
Barndominium insurance plays a vital role in protecting you and your barndominium. Most U.S. insurers provide barndominium insurance, so if you have existing insurance policies call your agent and check to see what type of policies they offer. Barndominium insurance policy coverage can vary between insurance companies so it may be a good idea to gather information from several different companies. You may find that one company offers better rates while another one may have more benefits in coverage for your barndominium insurance.
Just as barndominiums are different from traditional homes, barndominium insurance is unique in itself. Barndominium insurance provides coverage for damage to both the living area and the storage area. The contents within the living area (such as furniture, appliances, and clothing) can be covered in the barndominium insurance policy as well as contents in the storage area. Be sure to check with your agent to see if the barndominium insurance policy can also cover free-standing structures like sheds and separate garages.
There are several questions to ask agents when inquiring about barndominium insurance. Finding out what the policies cover (and what they DON’T cover) will help in the decision process of choosing your ideal barndominium insurance policy. Typical barndominium insurance policies will cover the costs of damage to the barndominium as well as the contents inside, if specified in the policy. Damages are usually referred to as occurrences that happen due to electrical failures, fires, most natural disasters, and vandalism. Barndominium insurance can also cover medical expenses involved if any injuries occur due to the covered damage to the structure mentioned. Verify with the barndominium insurance agents that these occurrences are covered in the policy. The costs of barndominium insurance policies can vary between providers as well, so calling around to different companies may benefit you in the long run.
Other factors that the barndominium insurance company will take into consideration are as follows:
- Are you conducting any business out of the barndominium?
- Where is the barndominium located and how far away are the neighboring houses?
- Can you see the neighboring houses from the barndominium?
- Is the electrical and plumbing up to code?
Juniper Hill Ranch Barndominiums can help you answer many questions for your barndominium insurance agent even before your barndominium is built by referring to the blueprints of your design.
Barndominium insurance is typically less expensive than traditional home insurance. Juniper Hill Ranch Barndominiums build the barndominiums with welded steel I-Beams which cuts the cost of barndominium insurance down (compared to traditional insurance for traditional homes). Several other variables can also affect the cost of barndominium insurance premiums.

Many providers also give additional discounts on barndominium insurance policies for using certain items like security and alarm systems, smoke alarms, and carbon monoxide detectors.
