Issues specific to the Grove:

  • Inspections must be specific to obtain better discounts. Homes built up to the 60’s mostly had dimensional lumber structure for the roof, a much thicker truss, and hold up better in hurricanes.

  • The large trees reduce wind speeds but can also be a hazard depending on the species if they are not properly trimmed.

  • The high-quality construction and high ground in most of the Grove benefits Flood insurance rates. The mangroves in the low-lying areas serve as natural wind and wave-breaks in storms, protecting homes and businesses on or near the water.

  • Many homes have cottages and exterior structures which must be insured separately.

  • Driving speeds are slower in the Grove thanks to the winding roads, lack of through-streets, and natural speed-bumps like peacocks. This all helps keep auto insurance rates lower than if you live across US1.

Your homes and businesses are exposed to many risks including fires and hurricanes, and neglect by tenants. I urge you to have the experts at MOURE INSURANCE review your insurance before the storm season. They have over 30 years of international experience in insurance and reinsurance, and can provide the technical analysis your property deserves. - Joan Andre
