Customer Testimonial

Meet The Wagners in this Best Practice Story and see how they were able to reduce their flood insurance by working with the Flood Risk Evaluator team.

“Through F.R.E., our premium went from $2,038/year to $511/year! That’s a 75% reduction! We even received a refund check from our Insurance Agent for the difference in premium since we paid up-front for the year. We’re thankful for F.R.E.’s mitigation recommendations as just a few months later we got flooded and the Smart Vents that we installed performed flawlessly and saved our home from collapsing.”-The Wagners
