A standard homeowners policy does not cover damages from flooding. A separate flood policy is needed to cover losses to your property caused by flooding, which provides coverage for things such as:

  • Structural damage
  • Furnace, water heater and central air-conditioning
  • Flood debris clean up
  • Electrical and plumbing systems

Cost of Coverage

As a homeowner, you can insure your home for up to $250,000 and its contents up to $100,000. For this $250,000/$100,000 building and contents coverage, yearly premiums average $450-$730 in low- to moderate-risk areas.

Stay Protected

Flood insurance means you’ll be reimbursed for all of your covered losses. As long as your community participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), you’re eligible to purchase flood insurance.

In general, a policy does not take effect until 30 days after you purchase flood insurance. However, if your lender requires flood insurance in connection with the making, increasing, extending or renewing of your loan, there is no waiting period.

Testimonial

"I am a sales professional / manager and always emphasize to the people I train the importance of quick and personable service. I left my last insurance company because they were bought out and the new service was horrible. I've always used a brokerage services because I want to see options and from the moment I contacted Tony & Roya at Neckerman I was certain my search was over. They are a great team, attentive, responsive and professional. I was able to feed in all my info online quick and easy. Inside of a day of shopping my bundled policy needs around I received a numerous competitive options and was able to make the switch immediately. Unfortunately for me we've had to file a few claims and both times they've walked me through the process, again everything was submitted online, quick and easy with great follow up. Very happy with the move, not only will I be staying but I will be referring my clients and customers Neckerman's way as well."
