Homeowners Deductible Options

One of the most popular ways to reduce the cost of homeowner’s insurance is to select an optional higher deductible.  While your share of any loss you suffer will be greater, your annual premium savings can range from 20% to 30%.  Ask our representative to assist you with finding out which deductible works best for you, and how much you may save.


Flood damage coverage

Standard homeowner’s policies do not cover flood damage. Special coverage is required under a separate insurance plan. If your town has flood plain zoning in place, you may be eligible for insurance through a special federal government program. Ask us for more information.
