Why Flood Insurance?

No other type of natural disaster has done more damage and destruction than flooding, in fact, just one inch of water can cast $27,000 or more in damages according to FEMA. Not only may your homeowner's policy not cover flooding, even if it does you may still need excess coverage to truly protect your home or business. DUAL offers primary flood coverage through their revolutionary online rating portal as a competitive alternative the NFIP. Excess Flood Coverage also available in all 50 states.
