Starting as a 19th-century family small community by the Neches River, about 30 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, this Texas “Golden Triangle” city now has an estimated population of over 118,000 people. Since it made Sperling’s list as one of the riskiest American cities in terms of natural disasters, it’s wise to make sure you’re adequately covered with Beaumont, TX homeowners insurance.

A basic home policy usually provides a package of a few different types of coverage. It is prudent to carefully review your own coverage or discuss it with a local agent. There are four basic types of coverage:
What’s not included in typical home policies? Damage from floods and earthquakes is excluded from a basic policy, and windstorm damage is excluded in some areas as well.
For example, a basic policy often does not cover water damage from flooding, even though the city’s location near the Texas coast makes it vulnerable to damaging tropical storms, tornadoes, and hurricanes. The community does participate in the National Flood Insurance Program, and you can ask an independent agent about adding this additional coverage to your Beaumont homeowners insurance.
Texas is victim to a high number of catastrophes. And since the city of Beaumont is so near the Gulf Coast, it is also vulnerable to a variety of periodic windstorms and heavy rains. Hurricane Ike and Hurricane Rita both heavily damaged homes inside the city. Beaumont normally enjoys hot, humid summers and mild winters, but can experience ice storms and hail when conditions are right. Since the city also lies in a Texas region known as the Piney Woods, wildfires can be a threat under dry conditions.
Homeowners concern themselves with man-made risks as well as natural ones. A basic Beaumont homeowners insurance policy should cover your home and personal property against theft and vandalism. Some insurers will also offer you a price break for installing a home security system.
