Capital-worthy protection for District residents
While D.C. may be the nation's capital, your home is your family's capital, which is why it deserves the best protection. Standard Washington D.C. homeowners insurance offers coverage for most weather perils including wind, lightning, hail, ice, snow and fire.
However, standard D.C. homeowners insurance policies do not provide coverage for damage from earthquakes or floods. For these perils, homeowners would need to purchase separate policies.
The District's location may protect it from some East Coast hurricanes, however, it's not uncommon for D.C. residents to still experience strong thunderstorms. And while the Atlantic Ocean may not be as much of a threat, the Potomac River can cause its own flooding problems. Even if you think your home isn't at risk, its not a bad idea for all homeowners to consider flood coverage through the National flood Insurance Program.
Weather can be unexpected and when it comes to your biggest investment it's best to cover all the bases. Learn more about the National Flood Insurance Program here.
