Protect from Expensive Repairs with Flood Insurance

Add Flood Protection to Your Homeowner’s Insurance

Did you know your standard homeowner’s insurance or renter’s insurance will not cover flood damage? It’s a surprise to many! More concerningly, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has revealed that over 20% of flood damage claims are filed by property owners in low to moderate flood risk areas. The reality is that flood damage can happen to almost any property!

Flood Insurance Coverage

Adding flood insurance coverage to your policy gives you the protection you need following common events like:

  • Heavy or excessive rainfall
  • Storm Surges
  • Rapid Snow Melts
  • Blocked Storm Drainage Systems

Without flood insurance, damage caused by events like these would be your responsibility!

Flood insurance coverage is split into two categories: building coverage and contents coverage. Here’s a quick reference to better understand the difference.

Structure Coverage:

Furnaces, water heaters
Electrical systems
Permanently installed carpets

Contents Coverage:

Electronic Devices
Portable Devices (e.g. microwaves or air conditioners not built into the home)
Washers and dryers
Kitchen utilities like refrigerators or stoves

The True Cost of Flood Damage

Water damage can happen quickly, and when it does, it typically requires complete replacement. Everything from drywall to furniture and flooring becomes unusuable following flood damage due to the risks of mold, mildew, or health risks contained in the overflowing water.

These costs can easily range in the tens of thousands of dollars from just a few minutes of flooding in your home!

Understand Your Flood Risk

Homes purchased through loans often require flood insurance by the lender to protect the property. Sometimes this depends on flood maps which determine the risk level of a given property. FEMA provides an accessible way to look at flood maps for any area within the United States.

Whether your home is in a high-risk flood area or not, floods can happen to anyone.
