Property & Casualty Insurance/House paint


We were sold wrong products for house paint and store gave us incorrect instruction. 3 painters who looked at house and paint used said store is responsible for job/repair. What is your take?
The problem is that stripping, washing and sanding will ruin our landscaping and is more expensive than simply replacing shingles and siding. Do we have a case?

Hi Kate,

My area of expertise lies in the realm of insurance.  You are asking a legal question (Do we have a case?), so my advice is to ask one of the legal experts. I am sure they will be able to point you in the right direction.

Best of luck, and please get back to me with any insurance question you might have.
