Hello. We have confirmed sinkhole activity and have a private adjuster working on our behalf to help get us through this so our insurance company does not leave us short. October will be a year since the claim was filed. We still do not have a settelment, thus no repairs. I hope this site will provide additional information.

Just signed up and looking for information about what may be the cause for cracks forming in our Block structure - it appears that the slab is "tilting" in at least one direction and perhaps 2. The home is in central Florida (west side) and the area homes are built on slabs that are based on a "Fine" sand.
I do not think that it is a "sinkhole" at this point .... but perhaps the land our neighborhood is being build on is not suitable for homebuilding.
It almost seems as if the water that lands near the base of the slab is removing the support and the slab is leaning/cracking on at least one corner causing the cracks to form the stairstep patten in the stucco surface.
Information on what to execpt would be appreciated.

Well this is my first time. My wife and I are considering buying a home at a great price, but there may be a sinkhole on the property. The concrete around the pool is badly cracked, and one corner of the house has the sla actually sticking out of the dirt and the block around it is seperating, by as much as a half inch in the largest spot. Also there is some sort of crack in the window frame, and the glass itself in this one window is bowed out. Any ideas? We're afraid to even have the place tested due to the cost involved.

We live in Oak Ridge, TN. Have part of the yard tearing away and a slowly growing hole in the backyard that was formed by geysers during a heavy rain. The crawl space floods from underneath the house rather than through the walls. House is almost 5 years old. Insurance doesn't cover and lawyer says it is too late to sue. So, we're kind of out in the cold with no one to guide us. Hoping to learn something of value here.
