Texas Insurance Storm Damage Deductible $ vs %?
I live in Houston, Texas and have USAA as my insurance company. I've been told by USAA where as I used to have a $1000 deductible for wind/storm damage for a house in Minnesota, USAA told me the State of Texas requires a 2% minimum of house value for a deductible.
I'm wondering if this is BS and if you can infact find insurance in Texas with a $$ deductable vs a %. I'm looking more into this with other insurance companies and plan on checking with what the State says. Any familiar or Texas based insurance reps around who care to share?

I live in Texas, and our insurance is written with a 1% deductible. I'm not aware of being able to write it for a set dollar amount, although in the end it's pretty much the same (e.g. choose a percentage of your home's declared value that's consistent with the deductible you want).
It has not been my experience that the deductible has to be a minimum of 2% of the home's value; like I said, mine is 1%.
I would scream just to be heard, as if yelling at the stars - I was bleeding just to feel.
You would never say a word, kept me reaching in the dark - always something to conceal.
