More Information on Flood Insurance

It’s easy to think of floods as the result of storms or natural disasters, but it’s just as common for a burst sprinkler, parts failure, melting snow, or inadequate drainage to cause flood damage that standard Home insurance doesn’t cover.

What is Flood insurance?

Flood insurance from Farmers covers your home or business from water and flood damage for up to $250,000 of the structure itself.

Contents are not automatically included with Flood insurance, so depending on your assets, it may make sense to add Contents coverage to protect valuable items. Up to $100,000 of Contents coverage is available to both homeowners and renters.

How Much Coverage Do I Need?

Coverage specifics vary depending on where you live – coastal, low-lying, or other flood-prone areas, for example, can impact how you choose your Flood insurance.

Contact a Farmers agent to help you determine the amount of coverage to protect your home. Your agent can also help you decide whether it makes sense to include Contents coverage with your Flood damage insurance.
