“If you think that your homeowner’s insurance policy protects you against financial loss for all types of damages, you may want to research your coverage more closely. One of the more significant and common events that it does not typically provide coverage for is flooding. A flood that brings even a few inches of water in your home can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage or more. Without flood insurance added onto your home insurance coverage, you may have to pay for these expensive repairs out of your own pocket. A closer look at if your home is at a high risk of flooding is in order.
FEMA has created flood maps that indicate the likelihood that your home may be impacted by a flood. In many cases, if your home lies in a known floodplain, your mortgage company may require you to purchase flood insurance in addition to your standard home insurance policy. Even if this is not required, it may make sense to check the FEMA maps and to determine what your risk is. UnderstandRead More

Most people think of home insurance as something that protects the structure of their home from perils such as tornadoes, hurricanes and fires. It does do that, but it also provides additional coverage that can be just as important: personal liability coverage.
Personal liability coverage can help to protect your assets in the event that you are sued and may face liability. The scenarios can be numerous. They could include your dog biting someone while out on a walk, a person slipping and falling on an icy sidewalk in front of your home or you facing a libel lawsuit over something you said on a social media page.
The personal liability portion of your homeowners insurance will cover you for these events and allow you to feel more secure that your assets will be protected. To find out more about personal liability protection, call Alliance Insurance or check out its website at alliancesrq.com.Read More

If you own a home, you have to insure it, and thanks to large disasters as well as overall inflation, most people’s homeowners insurance premiums are going up. If you are looking to reduce your homeowners insurance costs, there are a number of things you can do, including raising your deductible, shopping around and installing a home security system. One thing you may not have thought of, however, is having a wind mitigation experience.
Since much of the damage covered by home insurance in Florida, comes from wind, insurers are very concerned about it. That’s why many insurers require a wind mitigation inspection, and it’s actually a good thing. During the inspection, the inspector will look for key features and additions to your home that would qualify you for discounts on insurance. He or she also will give you tips on things you can do to your home to get further discounts.

Do You Have Property Insurance?
When you live in Florida, it is essential to have flood and hurricane insurance for your residential or commercial property. Hurricanes occur each year in Florida, and some of these storms are devastating, leading to massive property damage from the high winds and torrential rains. In addition to the damage caused from the rain and wind, the local waterways and sewage systems can overflow, causing additional problems for your property. Without insurance, you can’t afford to repair or replace a building, and this can lead to a significant financial loss.

When you live in a coastal state like Florida, you can save money on your home insurance premiums by hiring a certified inspector to perform a wind mitigation inspection. Wind mitigation involves performing whatever home repairs and renovations necessary to reduce the risk of damage and associated loss caused by the strong winds that often occur with storms and hurricanes in the region. Given the high number of coastal storms, a large portion of the costs related to most Florida insurance plans is related to the wind-related risk.
A wind mitigation inspector looks at a lot of different home features like construction materials, the presence or lack of shutters and other types of door and window coverings and roof design and slope. The inspector also checks if everything is to code. Once the inspection is complete, you’re given the opportunity to improve your home if necessary so that it can better withstand strong winds and result in a positive wind mitigation report.
