Home insurance risks in Denver

Denver is susceptible to a wide range of weather events that could cause serious damage to your home. Among them: floods, thunderstorms and winter storms.

Thankfully, most insurance policies cover damage from thunderstorms and winter storms — including damage from hail, freezing and high winds. However, standard home insurance usually doesn’t cover flooding.

If you think you’re in an area where water damage is possible, you can purchase flood insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) or from a number of major providers.
