Another Florida Sinkhole Makes Headlines

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014 by Lisa Scully


Click here to watch a short video about the Spring Hill sinkhole.

Sinkholes typically occur unexpectedly and are a result of unstable soil. Sinkholes can also result from human activity, resulting from a water main break or ruptured sewer pipe.

No matter what the cause, sinkhole activity can damage your home and reduce its value, especially if ignored. Sinkholes can also be extremely hazardous, and even deadly.

While major sinkhole occurrences are less frequent in north Florida and south Georgia, you should still know the common signs:

  • Cracks show on the interior and exterior surfaces of your home and appear to be widening.
  • Water stains, due to roof and flashing leaks, show up on walls and ceilings.
  • You hear popping sounds and creaks at night.
  • Floors are no longer level, making it difficult to operate windows and doors.
  • In the yard, depressions and holes appear.
  • Fences shift out of plumb.

If you recognize any of these signs, then be sure to give us a call today for your free estimate: 800-714-3020.
