About Home Insurance in Texas
Homeowners insurance pays to repair or replace your home and personal property if they’re damaged or destroyed by an event covered by your policy.

Types of Policies
In Texas, insurance companies sell two types of insurance policies:
- All-risk policies (also known as a comprehensive coverage or open perils coverage) offer you broad protection and cover all causes of loss unless the policy specifically excludes them.
- Named perils policies (also known as specified perils coverage) offer narrower protection than an all-risk policy and cover only the causes of loss specifically named in the policy.
The amount you pay for homeowners insurance depends on many factors, including the age of your home, the replacement cost, where you live, your claims history, and more.
In Texas, the average yearly premium is $1,661, making it the third most expensive premium in the United States. In other words, it pays to shop around for the best value. Get started now.

Most homeowners policies exclude the following types of losses:
- Wind or hail damage to trees and shrubs

Home insurance policies do not cover flood damage. To protect yourself, you will need to purchase a separate flood insurance policy from the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). If your home is located in a special flood hazard area, your lender will require you to have flood insurance.
Your agent at Rodney Mouton Insurance Agency can help you determine if you need flood insurance for your property.
