One of the first things homeowners will purchase after buying a home is home insurance. Homeowner's insurance is needed to protect your home and valuables in the case of an emergency. Without it, you can be spending thousands of dollars on repairing your home and replacing lost valuables.
But will your homeowner's insurance cover flood damage? Yes and no. If an accident such as your water heater explodes or a burst pipe, your homeowner's insurance will cover the damages.
However, in the case of a flooding incident caused by rising waters, you will not be covered. Unless your purchase additional flood insurance. You can purchase flood insurance through your insurance agent or the National Flood Insurance Program.
While flood insurance may seem like an added expense that you don't need, at Holt Flood Insurance, we highly recommend purchasing it because, without it, you could be spending thousands of dollars on repairs alone.
Flooding can happen at any time and anywhere, regardless if you live in a flood zone or not. Storms are increasing each year, bringing large amounts of rain and snowfall.
This increase causes dams and floodgates to overflow, spilling into the streets, which could eventually find a way into your home. There are many ways you can prevent this, such as elevating your home, filling in basements, adding floodgates, and more.
But water can still find a way inside, so the best way to protect your home and valuables is by purchasing flood insurance. And whether you are new to flood insurance or looking for a better rate, Holt Flood insurance is here to help.
