Insurance Coverage for Exterior Repairs
Your property insurance policies may cover the cost of making major repairs to your aging condominium, apartment or commercial building.
Washington law changed in 2012 to allow for potential coverage for hidden water damage where construction defects have allowed rainwater intrusion.
The attorneys at Stein, Sudweeks & Stein have pioneered and perfected a claim process to maximize your insurance recovery. We have recovered significant settlements on behalf of 60 different condominium associations and apartment building owners in Washington, and have numerous cases in progress including commercial buildings.
Our work has helped to develop the law and establish coverage for hidden water damage against old, expired policies (some more than 30 years old) in the following cases. Law 360, an online legal journal explains the significance of the Sunwood decision obtained by our very active managing partner, Jerry H. Stein.
