My mother lives in Florida and her house has a sink hole does any know of any reliable, trustworthy, dependable contractors in Port Richey, Fla. One contractor estimated the repair at $90,000, and the insurance company estimated the repair to be much, much less!!

Port Richey is known as sinkhole country......tough to get homeowners insurance......

What role is the Insurance Co playing in the problem.......They usually take no responsibility for fixing "soils" problems unless Mom has purchased special sinkhole insurance.....

Remediation is expensive.......hundreds (or thousands) of cubic feet of a specialized grout is pumped underground to stabilize the soil.....

You can find engineers listed in the YellowPages: Professional Engineering-Geotechnical-Soils
