A standard home insurance policy does not pay for damages caused by inclement weather or other natural disasters. This means that you are on your own if your home in Arizona suffers damage because of flooding.
In most cases, you can purchase additional coverage for natural disasters from the same indemnity company that provides your standard home insurance plan. Many companies offer coverage through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which is a federally supported option specially made for homeowners who live in areas prone to flooding.
Those living in Prescott, AZ and other parts of the state may be surprised to learn that flood insurance is required in Arizona.
Monsoon season brings heavy and consistent rain that ultimately raises the risk of flooding. The federal government, because of the state’s overall landscape, classifies water as a flood in Arizona if it reaches over one foot. The result of flash floods alone could render more than a foot of downpour. Thus, you need a flood insurance plan if you hope to remain compliant with the law.
The amount of flood insurance you purchase depends on several factors, which are not limited to:
You should not automatically go for the most economical plan as such a policy may not be enough protection when the unexpected becomes reality. Purchasing the most expensive policy may also not be the best strategy.

Absolutely great quality, good value, very professional and super responsive. Adam handled everything for me so I didn't have to worry about a thing! Got me a better price on car insurance than I could get for myself looking through the internet. I have referred my family to him as well.
I have had a few difficult situations with a couple of different insurance companies and Adam has always been extremely professional and helpful finding me the best rate and value. Super responsive and knowledgeable. Great agent! Wouldn't go anywhere else!
Always answers my calls whenever I call. I’ve been working with him for three years. I can tell you right now there’s nothing like good customer service when you have insurance. Sure you can change for 300 bucks a year but when push comes to shove you wanna have somebody that has your back and is willing to talk to you seven days a week.
Adam is one of the hardest working persons I have ever met. He is local, honest, and very thorough. As an insurance broker, he was able to shop with a multitude of carriers that really helped him go above and beyond to find insurance coverage that was customizable to my families needs. He was able to facilitate every policy we were needing; renters, homeowners, pet, life, umbrella, auto, business, boat, travel trailer, and UTV. One thing that really stood out to us is the personalized service we received, as a client of Adam's you can call, text, or email him directly and never have to deal with endless 1-800 numbers and transfers. Give this guy a call, you wont regret it.
Adam was referred to me by a friend. His ability to reduce my insurance costs and explain coverage was awesome. I highly recommend Adam.
