Signs that could indicate a sinkhole is developing..

We buy sinkhole houses in Tampa Florida. A sinkhole is more prevalent in Tampa Florida because Florida sits on limestone. Weather conditions such as rain and drought can cause limestone to erode and dissolve causing the limestone to give way in areas creating sinkholes.

Sinkholes that develop under houses can cause structural problems and must be addressed by strengthening and repairing the foundation through a process called underpinning. If your neighbors are experiencing sinkholes then you should have your property assessed by a contractor. Your home owner insurance policy will entitle you to have a free assessment of the damage. If you have a Tampa sinkhole house the costs for repairs can be overwhelming and possibly very costly. I buy sinkhole houses for fair market value and can save you the cost of repairs and the time that repairs can entail.

There are several signs that could indicate a sinkhole is developed or developing on your property. Cracks in your ceiling, walls, and flooring, cracks or buckling cement in cement slabs or cement flooring, cracks in outside steps, areas that are depressed or sunken are all signs that the property is experiencing a sinkhole. Houses falling into huge sinkholes are very rare. The instances of this are very few and far between. Most houses can be secured and repaired through underpinning. The house insurance policy will cover costs associated with sink holes; however, you may need a lawyer to help you fight for the repairs as insurance companies often opt to pay the maximum insurance on the house rather than face the cost of repairs.

Your house will need to be vacated during the repair process. Underpinning requires pulling up flooring under the load bearing walls and drilling pins to secure the foundation of the house. The house’s foundation must be secured as the shifting and settling of the soil can cause the foundation to shift and move. Often when a house is experiencing sinkholes, the floors can be felt shifting and moving as they are walked on. The repairs to the ceilings, walls and floors and any other damage incurred by the sinkholes must also be addressed.

A professional engineering company will be contracted by your insurance company and can give you a proper assessment of damage and the possible cost of repairs. If the engineering company finds that there is no evidence of a sinkhole the insurance company will deny your claim. Contacting a lawyer may be necessary if you are experiencing the evidence of sinkhole with signs of cracking and sinking. A lawyer will review the tests thoroughly and are often able to find evidence in the tests of sinkholes activity.

The process of underpinning is widely considered to be the best course of action when repairing sinkhole houses. If you are not interested in going through this process We buy sinkhole houses. Selling your house is a great option when faced with the expense of repairs and the time consuming process that can include needing to vacate the house during the repairs.

The signs of sinkhole Damage.

We buy unrepaired sinkhole houses in Tampa Florida. Sell me your unrepaired sinkhole house in Tampa Florida and avoid the financial and time consuming headaches of having your sinkhole house repaired. Sinkhole houses can have varying degrees of damage that result from settling and cracking. The sooner you notice signs of damage and contact the insurance company to begin testing and analysis the better.

The Signs of Damage: Some of the signs of damage can include cracking and settling that appears in the outside steps. The house shifts as the dirt collapses under the foundation and this can result in the steps being pulled away from the foundation.

The walls of the house often show signs of the house sinking in the sinkhole. The cracks running along the tops of the walls can be obvious or subtle depending on the length of time the sinkhole has been developing and by the severity of the sinkhole. The floor can pull away from the walls and leave cracks and gaps between the wall and the floor boards. Carpeting can sometimes conceal this issue but the damage can be easily seen by lifting the edges of the carpeting. There may also be signs of sinkhole damage in the yard as well. New dips and holes in the yard should not just be dismissed they should be investigated as they could be evidence of a sinking that is taking place on the property and that is affecting the house as well.

Notify Your Insurance Carrier: Notify your insurance carrier if you notice any of these signs of damage or other similar signs such as nail pops and doors that are difficult to open or close. The settling of the house will affect the door frames. There are many signs of sinkhole damage and a home owner should not dismiss small signs as the sooner the issue is addressed the better it will be for the house. The insurance carrier will send out professionals to assess the property and to process the claim. This could take several weeks.

Contact a Lawyer: The insurance carrier may deny your claim. Do not assume that there is no sinkhole based on the insurance companies finds alone. Contacting a lawyer that specializes in sinkhole claims and cases will help you determine if you do have a valid claim. The tests will be reread and more tests can be done to determine if there is a sinkhole present on the property. The lawyer will be able to help you walk through the process of appealing the claim. Insurance carriers often opt not to pay for the repairs so they instead pay the maximum amount insured on the house. Insurance carriers are often concerned about the high cost of repairs and the potential for future damage. A lawyer can make sure that your policy is read properly and that you get all that you are entitled to.
