A question we are often asked at North Carolina Flood Insurance is, “do homeowner insurance policies cover flooding?”
Flood insurance protects the structure and contents in the event of a flood or when groundwater rises and causes damage to your home or business as homeowner insurance doesn’t typically cover damage due to flooding.
Our flood insurance providers are a varied group of industry leaders. When you write your flood insurance policy with North Carolina Flood Insurance, you not only get access to receive a quote from our multiple A-rated, Admitted carriers – you’ll also get the best solution, coverage, and rate for your flood insurance needs.
Private Carrier Options
Even though private carriers were always able to provide alternate flood insurance coverages and quotes, it was typically up to the mortgage lender to decide what type of flood insurance was needed (usually through the NFIP) for your home.
With recent changes, you now have a choice.
Private carrier flood insurance policies are market-based, which means they can possibly be more competitive in price unlike policies offered through the NFIP (depending on the coverage you need and the zone your home/property is in). At North Carolina Flood Insurance, we recognize the importance of having the right type of protection.
We also recognize the importance of having more than one option – which is what we strive to provide you.
A few of our Private Carriers include:
- Clearwater Underwriters
- Lloyd’s of London
