Protect your properties with tailored options for Wind Deductible Buy Backs.

As commercial property risks are not one size fits all, the Blue River Underwriters team provides tailored options for Wind Deductible Buy Backs to lessen the insured’s expense exposures. Under this separate policy, the insured can reduce the deductible to a lower percentage or flat rate on a primary wind policy in effect. This attractive solution gives flexibility where needed, particularly in coastal areas and those likely to experience weather related events.
