What is Hurricane Insurance?
Hurricane Insurance is a necessary insurance policy in the state of Florida; it does cover property damages to a residential and commercial property caused by a tropical storm or named hurricane.
A hurricane insurance policy is the best solution to offset hurricane losses and receive compensation for necessary repairs to your home or your commercial properties in Florida.

The cost of hurricane insurance depends on many factors:

- What is the cost of your property to rebuild in the event of major damages?.
- And how much deductible you’re willing to pay up-front, such as 2%, 5%, or 10% of the policy limit.
Most insurance carriers won’t issue policies when a hurricane is imminent; therefore, you have to plan early to purchase a hurricane policy.
Why are Hurricanes so devastating?
Most often, due to the warm water from the Atlantic Ocean, Hurricane travels with a high wind over 100 MPH. In this case, a hurricane knocks out roofs, especially the one with the Joisted-Masonry roof construction, and causes severe water damage and structural damage to your home or your commercial building. Therefore, Insurance companies take the burden of home repairs and help property owner restore their properties to what it was before.
