If your home or business was damaged or destroyed by a flood, you face major decisions about your property. Do you repair? Do you rebuild? Do you relocate?  The decisions you make now can help provide a safer, stronger future for you and your family. If you decide to repair or rebuild, here are some points to consider:

  • The risk you faced yesterday might not be the same risk you face today or in the future.
  • By rebuilding higher, you can reduce — or perhaps avoid — future flood loss and reduce the impact on your finances.
  • The financial consequences of not having flood insurance coverage could be devastating if another flood occurs.
