Customer Question

if a flange is supported on only one half (no screws) to a wood base and no wood base support on the opposite side (no screws either) and I can actually raise it 2 inches with my fingers (PVC piping attached) i've been having a slow leak (damaged wood and wallboard) . To repair would require cutting holes in living room wall and part of ceiling. Lastly the waste pipe which serves my unit is in a wall between units and was ammended to be my responsibility to repair leaky pipes. Allstate who covers my unit on a sepetate policy says they only cover bursts. My HOA has a policy which reads that it will cover problems all the way to the original builder. The builder has a 10 year statute of limitations. It seems to me the original intallation of the waste flange was not up to code . If I'm right maybe I can get the homeowners policy, up the $8 million with a $5000.00 deductible. Your thoughts.
