Elevation Review for Coastal Wind or Flooding Risk

Elevation Details Homeowners Tips
1 ft. This is the average home elevation in Manteo, NC

» Elevation is crucial to a homeowners insurance policy because it determines the risk of your home being in a flood zone which is particularly important in a coastal state such as Manteo, North Carolina.

A standard homeowners policy does not cover flood damage. If you live in a flood prone area, you will need to purchase a separate flood to fully protect your home.

Flood insurance can be purchased via the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) or in the private market. NFIP policies come with coverage caps and other restrictions so you may need to supplement your flood insurance coverage with a private market policy.

It is important to calculate your dwelling coverage for your home in Manteo so you know what type of homeowners insurance coverage you need to cover your replacement cost. It is recommended to have enough dwelling coverage to rebuild your home if it was destroyed by a covered peril.

Please remember that replacement cost coverage does not include the cost of the land, only the price to rebuild your home, which is why we like to help customers by answering a few questions that you may have.

What is the average replacement cost coverage in Manteo, NC?

Average Building Cost Per Square Foot in Manteo: $135 (low end)

None or Very Minor Improvements$135$248,400
Some Additional Upgrades$169$310,500

The dwelling coverage is calculated by the average cost per square foot ($135) in Manteo, North Carolina times your heated square footage.

So if you are looking to build, and your square footage of your new home is 2500, you are looking at a dwelling coverage premium of around $421,875 (Media price to build of $169 x 2500 sq. ft.) to cover the cost to rebuild your new home.

What is the difference between actual cash value and replacement cost value?

Homeowners insurance is available in both actual cash value (ACV) and replacement cost value (RCV). Knowing the difference is important:

Actual cash value: When valuing your personal possessions, an actual cash value policy will take depreciation into account. This means that your 10-year-old TV will be basically worthless according to your insurance company. While an ACV policy tends to be cheaper, if you have to make a claim you may be disappointed in your claim payout.

Replacement cost value: A RCV policy will replace your possessions with brand new items of similar quality regardless of how old they were at the time they were destroyed. While RCV policies are slightly more expensive, they are well worth the cost if you have to make a claim.
