How much can I save on my insurance?


The state of Florida now requires insurance companies to provide stated discounts for hurricane protection. However, purchasing window protection isn’t mainly about saving money on insurance premiums. It is about making your home safe and secure during a hurricane so that you have a home once the storm is passed. It is crucial that you protect your windows during a hurricane. An opening of as little as 5 percent in a wall facing hurricane winds can pressurize the house enough to blow it apart. Preventing loss is the most important solution to the hurricane insurance problem. Your savings will depend on your insurance provider. Contact your insurance agent about discount programs they provide.
