In the Kansas City area, foundation repair work is common due to the expansive clay soils. Sometimes the repair work can be complicated because of several factors. These factors can depend on the type of structure, the weather and the soil conditions underneath your house. Kansas City Foundation Repair During Wet Weather

In some cases, homeowners put off repair work due to the fear of it being too expensive. However, when a structure continues to settle over time, the problem will only get worse. Once a problem gets worse, the repairs can raise in cost. It is best to address the problems when you first notice them.

At John Norris Foundation Repair, our experienced technicians will answer your questions and talk you through the entire repair process. That way you know what to expect and when to expect it.

Can Home Foundation Repair Work Be Done If The Ground Is Wet?

Due to the nature of work, it can be hard to give an exact answer. In most cases, the repair work is due to improper drainage around your home. This can cause water to pool underneath or close to the foundation. Our foundation piers do require a hole to be dug under the footer of the foundation. In some cases, the holes can fill up with water.

Will My Homeowners Insurance Cover Foundation Repair Work?

Coverage will depend on your homeowner’s insurance and the fine print in your policy. Foundation damage that occurs from typical settling of a building over the course of time is usually not covered in most policies. One thing to check on your homeowner’s policy is flood insurance coverage, earth movement coverage or ground collapse coverage. If any of your issues are caused from a direct cause of one of those occurrences, it is possible that you could file a claim.
