INSURANCE

Flood insurance is designed specifically to provide protection to your property for any loss that results from flooding. Since most of Florida is in a flood zone, this is valuable coverage that you should consider. In Florida, the effects of flooding from a hurricane or tropical storm can be devastating. What’s worse is that your homeowners insurance does NOT provide flood coverage. With rising waters and flash floods, it’s becoming increasingly important to obtain this policy. Flood insurance can help you get back on your feet and back into your home after a disaster.
