Concrete used in homes in contained the mineral pyrrhotite, which degraded foundations. Without repairs costing $150,000 to $250,000, affected homes eventually would be uninhabitable.

Private Insurance companies have denied homeowners’ claims to cover the cost of foundation repairs. In 2019, the Connecticut State Supreme Court ruled that homeowners’ insurance policies can exclude crumbling foundations under the existing definition of “collapse.”
