Flood Insurance

Flood Insurance

We know that cost is the #1 factor in choosing flood insurance. But most people we talk to want great service from their insurance advisor, too.

Flood Insurance You Can Trust In

Did you know that your homeowners insurance does not cover flood damage? Insurance against flooding must be obtained separately. A flood insurance policy also reimburses you for the work that you and other family members did to sandbag your homes, move furniture and remove debris.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) maps are important when it comes to flood insurance because if they show that your home sits in a 100-year flood plain, you must buy federal NFIP insurance in order to get a mortgage. If you live outside a high-risk zone, or if you no longer have a mortgage, this insurance is optional, yet highly recommended.

We offer free, comparative quotes on flood insurance from multiple insurance carriers so you can get the best possible rate.

  • Private options do not include surcharges for non primary residences and businesses
  • Pricing can be much more favorable that the NFIP
  • Some carriers offer an option to lock your rate in for as long as 3 years, for an additional premium
