Do more with an eco-efficient rebuild
At TD Insurance, we aspire to help improve the environment so people and economies can thrive. You can make a difference too. Making your rebuild an environmentally friendly one can be a great way for you to reduce your carbon impact.
With our Enhanced Home Coverage, you can get additional protection to cover the extra costs of buying environmentally friendly products for your repairs. If you have Eco-Efficient Rebuild and are repairing your home after a covered loss, you can take the opportunity to install environmentally friendly materials at no additional cost to you up to an extra 10% over the amount of your claim (up to $50,000). If you don’t have this extra coverage, you can still choose to pay out of pocket for green materials which sometimes pay for themselves in the long run.
Why go eco-efficient?
Going green isn’t a fad in home improvement. It’s the future (and really, the present). The amount of eco-efficient materials, products and services on the market keeps growing and our Eco-Efficient Rebuild can help you add environmentally friendly options.
Being eco-savvy can reduce the negative impact you have on the environment. That’s good for the planet and the health of your community. Not only is it considerate, but it can also help save on your energy bills too. Upgrades like improved insulation, energy efficient windows and eco-friendly appliances can trim down your electricity use and strain on heaters and air conditioners.
What are some eco-efficient products I should consider?
Provide your dedicated TD Insurance claims adjuster with a detailed description of the product you’re considering. We can help you find out if it’s approved for coverage. Here are some popular green home improvements that are often covered:
- Low or no VOC paints
- Low flow bathroom fixtures
- High-efficiency furnace
- LED lighting
- Water pervious driveways, walkways and patios
- Reclaimed wooden boards
- Renewable flooring materials like bamboo or cork
- Eco-friendly roofing options
- Eco-friendly insulation
What should I know before starting an eco-efficient repair?
The key to any good repair after filing a claim is knowing what you need in advance.
If you’re working with contractors or a building company, consult with them about how you can use eco-efficient materials for your repairs. You can also do your own research to find stores and vendors in your area that can help you find the products you need.
In the event of a claim, talk to your Claim Advisor to confirm how to take advantage of the Eco-Efficient Rebuild feature of your Enhanced Home Coverage.
