Insurer Settles Claim More Than a Year After the Homeowner Files
A long driveway takes you up to the red brick house with an expansive front porch and giant white pillars. Once inside, a grand foyer and stairs lead you up or down. The home is not only large, it’s beautiful.
‘We are proud of it and love it,’ Ronald Daughtridge said. He and his wife purchased the home more than 14 years ago.
‘We were trying to get away from the killings and shootings at night and wanted to raise (our) kids in a good area,’ Daughtridge said.
The home was by all accounts perfect until a rainy week last year. A week of storms and rain proved too much, and water started to pour inside the bottom floor.
‘It (flooded) the den, the kitchen, and the bathroom,’ Daughtridge said. After using a wet vac, the family ripped out the carpet and baseboards to suck up about three inches of water. Several pieces of furniture were damaged or ruined.
