Did they at least have insurance to cover this or does everything go out of their own pocket?
Getting your house destroyed sucks at the best of times, but when youre old, and in this point in time when its probably worth shit anyway...double ouch.
Well, they have State Farm insurance, which is an awful company to work with on water damage issues. They're trying to tell the homeowners that they will only pay for the damages to the room that was directly affected by the water. I'm trying to help the owners by explaining to the insurance adjuster that even though the water was localized to one room, the mold growth is contiguous throughout the house and is a direct result of that pipe because it created that humid condition throughout. Humidity is moisture too, and the adjuster is too dumb to understand that.
