Four years after state legislators passed a law meant to move people to private windstorm insurance plans, the scales have apparently tipped in favor of the private market.

Do you have a list of which private companies now offer windstorm coverage?

Rust Ewing Insurance in TC has several commercial and residential markets that INCLUDE wind coverage in the quote. Rates are much cheaper than TWIA.

I would very highly recommend GIA right here on the island to contact about wind insurance and especially to get their input regarding your structure rating, which is crucial in determining your premium . Our experience with them was phenomenal in reducing our condo HOA premiums by $18,000+ a year from the previous agency we used, which basically threw their hands up and said nothing could be done.

As far as our experience with GIA, they're the best of the best.
