Default Beware Allstate

Beware Allstate. My house was built in 1993 and met all building
codes at that time. Now I have wind damage and they will not cover
damage because the roof is not up to current code. We are simply
talking about the nailing strip on a single and its relationship with
the glue strip. I've had several roofers tell me that this is the way
roofs were put on at the time and the code has changed since. If this
is allowed then I'm not sure it pays to have insurance. I'm putting on
a new roof out of my pocket and leaving Allstate and will never return.

So if your house burns down because of an electrical fire, Allstate said
(not you, Allstate) they will not pay because you don't have (assumption)
AFCI's in you panel box. I doubt that you and Allstate discussed this by
chance but if your roof claim is as you say then my electrical scenario
must be true.

The way you are describing your experience, Allstate wants all their
customers to rip their house apart every time there is a major or local
code change? Doesn't sound right to me.

[note: not an AFCI wiz bang. Just something I read in this group about
new codes and using for an example]
