There’s something you should know: Flood losses aren’t covered by your homeowners insurance policy.
Flood Insurance policies protect your home in the event of a flood, and is required in most coastal regions. As soon as you complete your claim, we’ll file it and send an adjuster to your location to verify the extent of your flood damage. We’ll work hard to get you back to normal fast.
Frequently, buildings, roads, and parking lots are being built where forests and meadows used to be, which in turn, decreases the land’s natural ability to absorb water. Combined with ever-changing weather patterns, this construction has made recent floods more severe and increased everyone’s chance of being flooded. Floodwaters have the power to damage not only your home and sense of security, but also your financial future. How can you protect your most important investment in case of flooding?
The biggest investment most people will ever make is in their home. That’s why it makes sense to protect the sizable financial investment you’ve made in your own home with a comprehensive homeowners plan. Your home purchase is an investment deserving the protection that only an experienced insurance professional can provide. Choose from a variety of policies to protect your home against loss; often, this insurance can be paid on a monthly or annual basis, and can even be covered in your monthly mortgage payments if you decide to “escrow”.
