NFIP Flood Insurance policies in Illinois

Do you need Flood Insurance?  Are you in a flood zone?  The truth is everyone is in some sort of flood zone - it’s just that some areas are more prone to flooding than others. Did you know that floods happen in all 50 states and 25% of flood claims come from areas that are not considered high risk?  And, did you know that your Homeowners Insurance Policy does not cover a flood claim?  Let Langlois Insurance Agency walk you through the steps to proper Flood Insurance coverage.

So, what does Flood Insurance cover?

Building Property

  • The insured building and its foundation
  • Electrical and plumbing systems
  • Central air conditioning equipment, furnaces and water heaters  
  • Refrigerators, cooking stoves, and built-in appliances such as dishwashers
  • Permanently installed carpeting over unfinished flooring
  • Permanently installed paneling, wallboard, bookcases, and cabinets
  • Window blinds
  • Detached garages (up to 10 percent of Building Property coverage).  Detached buildings (other than garages) require a separate Building Property Policy
  • Debris removal

Personal Contents Property

  • Personal belongings, such as clothing, furniture, and electronic equipment
  • Curtains

  • Certain valuable items such as original artwork and furs (up to $2,500)

What's Not Covered:

  • Currency, precious metals, and valuable papers such as stock certificates
  • Property and belongings outside of an insured building such as trees, plants, wells, septic systems, walks, decks, patios, fences, seawalls, hot tubs, and swimming pools
  • Living expenses such as temporary housing
  • Financial losses caused by business interruption or loss of use of insured property
  • Most self-propelled vehicles such as cars, including their parts
