We specialize in flood insurance needs for the Sacramento area to help protect you and your family.
Flooding is defined by the National Flood Insurance Program as a general and temporary condition of partial or complete inundation of two or more acres of normally dry land area or two or more properties (at least one of which is your property) from overflow of inland waters, unusual and rapid accumulation or runoff of surface waters from any source, and mudflows.
Standard homeowners insurance doesn’t cover any damage caused by rising waters that cover more than two parcels of land. If your home is filled with water as a result of rising bodies of lakes, rivers, streams, and oceans or even flooded streets you need flood insurance to return you to where you were before the flood.
Even one inch of water in your home, condominium or apartment can cause more than 10,000 in damage. A flood policy can help you get the water out, replace and repair damaged property and even cover the removal of debris that remain on your property after the rising waters have subsided. We have access to both the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) as well as companies that will provide policies that can ensure you are protected where the NFIP cannot offer that same coverage.
Please contact us so we can provide you a value focused proposal to protect you, your family and your possessions and provide you peace of mind that comes with an insurance agent you know and a policy you can count on.
