As Monsoon season has passed here in Arizona, we at times still are experiencing rains of significant proportions. Clients have recently asked us about damage that has occurred over the years due to Monsoon Seasons.
A HO policy 00 03 05 11 with and endorsement of HO 32 32 06 12, states that constant repeated discharge, seepage, or leakage of water excluded. This coverage pertains to repeated wind-driven rain that causes hidden damage, mainly rot, and water damage to insulation that cannot be seen.
There is an exception for mold that is hidden behind walls that applies to water caused by heating, plumbing, air conditioning system, sprinkler system, or household appliance, or storm drain or water steam/sewer pipes off premises. The endorsement excludes water caused by repeated seepage or leakage. Wind driven rain is not repeated leakage or seepage, it is forced by the wind. Wind-driven rain is excluded under the water exclusion. Therefore this is not a covered loss.
