After the torrential downpour of rain across the area yesterday, I thought it was a good time to remind people of the importance of Flood Insurance. Floods can happen anywhere, anytime. They’re one of the most unpredictable catastrophes, and just a few inches of water can soak your home and sock your wallet. And, according to safety experts, your home has a greater chance of being damaged by a flood than a fire. But, did you know that homeowners insurance policies don’t cover flood damage? Only flood insurance will cover the losses.We can help you secure flood insurance to protect your home or business.
It’s a good idea to start the process as soon as you can because most flood insurance policies have at least a 30-day waiting period before they take effect. Also, premium costs for residential properties vary depending on coverage, which is available for your building, contents or both. Our agency can help you determine the flood risk level for your home and property and advise you on the appropriate level of insurance protection.
