Make sure you purchase a entire brick home. No vinyl siding. Also, see if home has storm windows or protection for the windows in the event of a storm. Finally, look at the number of BIG trees in the yard and how close they are to the house.... more
depends on what side of hwy 98 you live on and if your in a flood plan. However, I think the average cost is around $1,800 to $2,500 depending on sqft. Also, depends on how much you are willing to cover first. Most people do 2%, but I have seen coverage as high as 10% for deductible.... more
