Are new homes covered for foundation damage?
While homeowner’s insurance has very limited coverage, builder’s insurance can cover some costs up to 10 years.
First, attempt to find the reason for the foundation damage, whether it’s simply ground shifting, nearby construction, or even poorly designed when the home was built.
You will also want to check with your home builder’s insurance company to assess what they do and do not cover.
Sometimes, related causes can null out the protection of the other potential cause(s) of foundation damage. For example:
Say your house has been settling for years unnoticeably, and then a pipe bursts adding water damage that causes more extensive damage to your foundation. The settling of the house was the initial cause for the pipe bursting, so the damage wouldn’t be covered.
