MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) -- All she wants is to go home but a Milford woman is still staying somewhere else four months after Super Storm Sandy.
The house's foundation is seriously damaged but she says her insurance company isn't paying her what she deserves.
"It was the american dream. It was a place ot give my daughter roots," said Jen Daigle.
But Jen Daigle and her daughther have been uprooted since Super Storm Sandy which she says damaged the foundation of her Richard Street home.
"As the water got under my home and got stuck there as the force of the water leaving, what it did is destroyed my foundation," said Daigle.
But the Flood Damage Assessment report given to the Hartford Insurace company concludes the foundation damage was pre existing, that it was there before the October storm.
This, despite a city inspection just a few mnths earlier post storm Irene findging the foundation fine, but an inspection after Sandy calculated damage at 70 percent.
For Daigle disputing that damage wasn't due to Sandy is daunting.
"And then I come home and I put on my hard hat and I fight these insurance ocmapnies and I am right and I deserve justice," said Daigle.
The insurance company has settled this already issuing her a check for $58,000 but Jen isn't cashing it. Instead she is fighting on, going through what is called an appeals process.
"I am just going to keep pushing into until the truth pevails because I believe that's what happened. The insurance companies as big as they are I'm going to find a way to get to them and I'm going to find a way to get, all I ask is what's fair," said Daigle.
In the meantime, the city of milford ruling in order to re-build, the house must be raised and Daigle has submitted plans to do so, even though it might cost over 100 thousand dollars, wanting to once again live a block from the beach.
"Point Beach is still where my heart is," said Daigle.
News 8 spoke with a spokesperson from the Hartford Insurance Company and they acknowledge the claim is in the appeals process and that they are working to resolve this.
The State Department of Insurance says there have been over 60,000 property Sandy claims and over 375 million has been paid out. There have been over 6,000 flood damage claims with national flood insurance paying over 160 million.
