Understanding the Importance of Flood Insurance

Whether you live near water or reside in an area deemed low-risk, the minimal investment in flood insurance far outweighs the potentially devastating effects of flood damage.

It is important to note that standard homeowners and business insurance policies do not cover losses caused by flooding. Additionally, we recommend you secure flood coverage even if you are a renter or if your property is in a low to moderate risk flood zone. Flood insurance covers damage to buildings, personal possessions, fixtures, machinery and equipment, as well as the cost of preventative measures and cleanup expenses.

Barton Insurance offers premium flood insurance coverage at affordable rates through the National Flood Insurance Program. As we know all too well, flooding can happen anytime, anywhere. There is typically a 30-day waiting period from when the coverage is purchased to when it goes into effect so do not wait for the next, big storm if you are considering flood insurance.
