Portland homeowners insurance rate factors

Portland faces several types of natural disasters, which can affect your home insurance cost and what type of coverages you may need.

Earthquake insurance in Portland

Because the West Coast is prone to earthquakes, we recommend having protection for your home from earthquakes. Standard home insurance usually will not cover damage from earthquakes. However, you can purchase earthquake coverage and add it to your policy. You can also purchase a separate earthquake policy from a different insurance company if your current home insurance company does not provide it.

Wildfire coverage in Portland

There are more than 140,000 properties in Oregon at high to extreme risk of wildfire damage, according to Verisk Analytics. A standard home insurance policy will usually cover fire damages. If you can't get home insurance coverage because you live in an area that has a high risk of wildfires, then you may be able to get wildfire coverage from your state's Fair Access to Insurance Requirements (FAIR) Plan.
