Foundation Damage and Insurance Claims

The foundation of a home or commercial building is the basis of its structural integrity. Unfortunately, foundations, whether concrete or pier-and-beam, can quickly be damaged as a result of bad storms or flooding, as are all-too-common in Dallas. While you may count on your insurance company to help you through the financial aspects of repairing or replacing your damaged foundation, sometimes these companies can be less than helpful. They may even deny you coverage altogether. At Smith Kendall, PLLC, we know how difficult this can be for Dallas homeowners and business owners. Fortunately, because of how dangerous foundation damage can be, most insurance policies do cover it.

Dangers of Foundation Damage

Foundation damage can be a critical problem for a homeowner or business owner, as it can easily cause a building to be unsafe. There are many dangers that can be caused by such damage, including:

  • Cracks / uneven pavement
  • Pothole formation
  • Damage to wooden pier beams, such as rot
  • Building collapse

These and other dangers posed by foundation damage necessitate quick repair. Unfortunately, when your insurance company is unfairly denying you coverage for these repairs or misrepresented your policy to you, causing you to believe foundation damage was covered, it can make it difficult, if not impossible to make the necessary repairs.
