We had a 20 ft belly in a pipe that connected our bathroom to the main sewer line. When the floor was jackhammered open to replace this pipe, one side of the floor dropped by 1 1/2″ because there was no dirt supporting the floor up on that side. The ground must have settled/ decayed leaving a huge gap under the foundation which is how the belly in the pipe formed to begin with. Now we have to rebuild the floor by ripping out the collapsed section and pour new concrete. The other issue is the floor has asbestos tiles on it so we may need an asbestos abatement. Is there anyway to have this covered by homeowners insurance?
Does Insurance Cover A Dropped Floor Or Foundation?
