& Drain vs. Flood Insurance
flood involves rising waters, such as those caused by rain, melting
snow, or overflow of a river. However, a homeowner’s or a
commercial property policy does not cover it. The primary way to
insure your home or commercial properties against flood is through
the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP)
and drain backup on the other hand involves water that causes damage
to to house and property as a direct result of a sewer or drain that
backs up. Sewer and drain back up coverage can be purchased as an
endorsement to your homeowner's and commercial policies.
