Whenever there are floods in Wisconsin, we receive a large volume of
calls from members wondering about how to get insurance coverage to
protect themselves from losses due to flooding. Here are answers to
commonly asked questions.
Make sure your insurance is keeping up with your life! We share a few
critical events that should trigger a review of your policies.
Spring and summer in Wisconsin can brew up severe weather resulting in property losses. Hail storms, high winds, flooding, and lightning. These are the most prevalent weather-related causes of property damage in Wisconsin. With deductibles averaging around $1,000, getting hammered by severe weather may cost you some money. Reduce the chances of taking a financial hit by doing what you can to prevent a loss due to severe weather.
Don't you love seeing rain instead of snow after a long winter? It’s great to be moving into spring. Spring rains
are also a good reminder to be sure your home is adequately covered in
case of a flood.
Did you know that homeowners insurance doesn’t cover flood damage? If you’re unsure about your need for flood insurance, our insurance
consultants can help you make an informed decision and give you a quote.
It’s mid-March and already areas in central and northern Wisconsin are being hit with floods. When it comes to your home and personal safety, we have some good information you'll want to know about.
Just because you haven't experienced a flood in the past, doesn't mean you won't in the future. Anywhere it rains, it can flood. Since standard homeowners insurance doesn't cover flooding, it's important to have protection.
