Flood Insurance Policies
Life happens, storms happen and it is best to protect your home or office and its belongings from potential flooding. Flood insurance is an added layer of protection, especially in Florida where hurricanes are a fact of life. Most insurance policies do not cover damage caused by flooding. Florida participates in the National Flood Insurance Program and can provide coverage. The Gordon Agency is enrolled in this program allowing you to purchase a flood insurance policy. It takes around 30 days for the policy to go into effect, so be sure to purchase this policy ahead of any potentially dangerous or damaging storm.
