What are Examples of Gradual Damage?

Some of the most common examples of gradual damage causing losses or denied claims are:

  • Plumbing, faucets or pipes leaking over time causing damage to the walls, ceilings or floors .
  • Water damage caused by seepage coming in from cracks in the foundation, or at the exterior of the house allowing water to enter your home.
  • Flashing, tiles, shingles or deteriorating parts on the roof that indicated signs of needed repair.
  • Mold, rot or corrosion
  • Deteriorating electrical wiring
  • Poor repairs or lack of repairs to home

It is often hard to understand why a claim gets denied, and one of the most popular reasons for a claim to be denied is when you try and make a claim for something that suddenly appeared to you, but is the result of something that has been happening for a while.
