I’m accustomed to insurance companies asking clients if the house they are buying has knob and tube wiring, 60 amp service, galvanized steel water supply pipes, an old oil tank etc.
However, I was surprized to hear from a client this week that his insurance company asked if their new house had a poured concrete foundation wall or a concrete block foundation wall.
Has anyone else come across this? And what would be their motivation to ask? (Hollow channels allowing water to migrate through the wall and leaking in a spot that is displaced from the origin of the leak?)
