But hereâ€™s a little known fact, you may also be able to save money on your home insurance costs if you let your insurer know your home is block constructed.
Why the savings?Â Block constructed homes are more termite resistant, fire resistant, and this stronger construction method results in durability and decreased maintenance.Â Add to that the fact that block constructed homes are highly energy efficient reducing heating and cooling costs AND are sound resistantâ€¦ Your insurance carrier loves these facts and so will you!
So contact your insurance carrier to get your discount.Â I realized the potential for the discount a few years after building my Integra block constructed home and my insurance carrier reduced my payment by $60 per year and refunded me the 8 years worth of overage that I had paid.
Color me happy!
