Lenders almost always require first time home buyers to purchase insurance. Homeowners insurance protects one of life’s biggest investments. Should a tree fall through your roof or a fire break out in the kitchen, insurance for your home helps cover the cost to repair  or rebuild.. It may also cover other buildings on your property like a garden gazebo or storage shed.  If the damage is extensive enough to prevent you from living in your home, homeowners insurance also helps cover the costs of temporary housing and living expenses.

What is the difference between flood damage and water damage?

Water damage is usually caused by water coming through something like a burst pipe, an overflowing toilet,  a dishwasher that leaks all over the kitchen floor or a roof that leaks after a hard rain.

Flood damage is caused by water coming from something like an overwhelmed levee that breaks, a clogged drainage system, a river or lake that overflows or even just the ground being inundated with too much water after a torrential storm. Water seeping into your basement after a heavy rain or winter runoff is usually considered flood damage.
