Our New Beach Home Insurance Blog

August 15, 2011 General by Administrator

This Blog is for the large special community that loves the Beach and is willing to take the risks associated with owning a home by the water.   Beach Front Homeowners have real problems that require special actions including a strategy to handle storms (Boarding Up, Storm Windows), Winter Water Leaks, Winter Burglaries, Fire Response Issues and the difficulty in finding solid insurance protection at a reasonable cost.

My hope is to provide a venue to talk about problems, solutions and exchange good advice on handling our problems.  And over time establish a list of reliable professionals that can help us manage our homes.  We all need insurance, craftsmanto work on the constant wear and tear on a Beach home, Fire and Security Systems, plumbing issues like shut off valves, finding a reliable Winter Caretakers to look in on our homes and other solid experienced vendors that understand that Beach Homes are not like other inland houses.  Hopefully over time we can find solutions through sharing our experiences.
