A work crew forgot to cover up the top part of a wall outside my kitchen after the gutter and the roof overhang were removed (in preparation to install the screened-in porch). There was heavy rain, and rainwater poured into the wall. The field operations manager said that the rainwater would simply dry out, and no additional action was needed from Housworth for this problem. Later I found out through professional inspection and testing that the mold level inside the kitchen wall was more than 10x the level found in other parts of the house or outside the house. Infrared imaging showed that water inside the kitchen wall came from the top of the wall (not from the bottom, where the crawlspace is located). Nevertheless, Housworth insisted that the mold growth is due to pre-existing mold problem, to a humidity of 53% in my kitchen, and to the evidence of previous mold in my crawlspace (which has a dirt floor). They blamed the presence of moisture in the kitchen wall to a rainwater bladder stored in my crawlspace, which they said was leaking water; however, when I had the rainwater bladder inspected, there was no leak. Housworth deducted only $500 from my final payment to them. However, the mold remediation professional has estimated the cost of cleaning up the water and mold damage in my kitchen wall at around $4000 to $5000. There is no question in my mind that the rainwater exposure to my kitchen wall, due to the fault of Housworth crew, resulted in the 10x elevated mold level in that wall, comparing to the level in any other part of my house. My decision to work with Housworth has cost me money (on the order of thousands), because of their evasion of responsibility.
