Flood Insurance for Massachusetts Residents
Flooding is the most common natural disaster to impact homes in the United States. It only takes one event to transform dozens of family homes into unlivable buildings, and recovery is expensive. Beyond Mother Nature, flooding can also occur from faulty plumbing and other circumstances. Thankfully, you can protect your home with flood insurance from A-Affordable Insurance. We provide Massachusetts residents with affordable, convenient policies and the peace of mind that you can recover after a devastating flood.
The Importance of Flood Insurance
Many people believe you only need flood insurance if you live near water. Unfortunately, this isn’t quite true. Recent natural disasters have proven that floods can affect you no matter where you are – even if you’re nowhere near a body of water. Plus, flood damage isn’t only caused by coastal storms and overflowing rivers, as homes are also under threat from the following:
- Slow-moving storms
- Melting snow
- Blocked sewers
- New construction
Very few homeowners insurance policies offer flood insurance as a standard option. Most companies believe the risk is simply too expensive to justify including it for everyone. Unfortunately, without it, your home can be ruined in a single event. If you want protection against floods, you’ll have to buy an additional policy on top of whatever home, condo, or renters insurance you own.
What Does It Cover?
Flood insurance will cover you from an assortment of causes, from natural floods to sewer backwashes to a malfunctioning washing machine. In case of a flood, your insurance will pay for the following:
- Repair or replacement of damaged and destroyed property
- Cost of living if your home becomes unlivable until it is fixed
There are two different types of flood insurance. The first covers damage to the structure of the home, including damage caused by water pressure and by rot from moisture. The second type covers damage to possessions inside the home. Both are essential for homeowners to fully protect their assets.

Condo insurance coverage is unique. You may believe the insurance you have through the
condo association is sufficient to meet your needs, but that’s not so. Your condo association insurance essentially covers the studs and sub-flooring – and little else.
This means that you also need coverage for everything from faucets, fixtures, walls, and floor coverings to your furniture, cabinetry, and even your wall coverings. Essentially, any improvements you made to the condo, other than the bare bones of the building, are excluded from the association’s condo insurance coverage.
