Protect your home from one of the most common natural disasters

Damages Add Up

  • A mere five inches of flooding in your home can cost you $11,000 in damages or more
  • In low-risk areas, your most valuable appliances and items are stored at ground level
  • Flooding costs homeowners over $6 billion of damages per year in the United States

Consider the Risk

  • A quarter of all flood claims are made by homeowners in medium and low flood risk areas
  • Floods may occur anywhere it rains, and where floods are rare they tend to be more severe
  • Global warming will increase flood risk in New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Miami & more

Flood Maps Change

  • A home that was in a low flood risk area twenty years ago may now be considered high risk
  • If you are in a low-risk area, your flood insurance will cost less, making it a good investment
  • 23 of our 50 states have coastal zones, which may also change and your increase flood risk

Don’t Rely on NFIP

  • The National Flood Insurance Program maxes out at $350,000, even for destroyed homes
  • The program has seen problems, sometimes it is requested for more money than it takes in
  • The program now costs $20 billion to run, and payouts are often based on outdated maps

Get Coverage Today

  • Most basic homeowner insurance policies do not include any flood damage coverage
  • Between 60-99% of homeowners effected by flooding in 2018 did not have insurance
