A deductible is the amount of money you state you will agree, in advance, to fund as part of the settlement when you file a claim. Subject to your claim being successful, your insurer will make the remainder of the payment to balance your claim; or a sum as mutually agreed. Claims can only be made based on the terms of your homeowner policy. You may be asking a question like 'What is the effect of increasing my deductible?' Increasing your deductible gives you the opportunity to save a lot of money on premiums. For instance, you can save up $20 or more when you have a deductible that's a sum of say $2,000 or more. Also, remember that in areas like Florida, and some parts of Louisiana, you might be asked to have different deductibles for different forms of damage. Such as windstorm damage as a result of hurricanes. Huge discounts are often offered by insurers; this is due to the fact that clients with high limit deductibles rarely file for claims. No matter the size of deductible you choose, endeavor to keep that sum of money safe. If ever the need arises for you to file a claim, your money is then always available towards a repair or replacement.
Provincial differences do exist. Coverage costs vary by province because each province has its own unique challenges. Average insurance in Ontario are not typically impacted by things like earthquake coverage but the same cannot be said of British Columbia, for example. In Canada, overland flooding is a separate area for insurance and insurers are not typically willing to cover this risk. As an example, an average home insurance premium in Alberta is ~$900/year for homeowners. Quebec homeowners pay on average ~$840/year in home insurance costs.

In general, the damage to your property caused by wear and tear are not covered. It is essential to understand that the list of exclusions can vary from company to company.
