Cast Iron Pipe Claims

  • Newer homes are constructed using Polyvinyl Chloride, or PVC. They are cheaper, lighter, more durable, and are the new industry standard.

  • However, if you have an older home, your plumbing system may be composed of cast iron pipes.

  • These pipes are notorious for corroding, rusting, scaling, pealing, and even bursting and/or breaking. They may also cause obstructions, which may result in plumbing backups or overflows.

  • These claims are very costly for the insurance company, as they may have to pay you to trench your home to replace the damaged cast iron pipes. That is why they will look for reasons to avoid doing so.
