Checking In On The Crumbling Foundations Crisis
Dozens of Connecticut homes have been hoisted off the ground as the state helps pay homeowners to repair ruined concrete foundations.
This hour, we check in on the crumbling foundations crisis that is impacting homes and homeowners. We talk with the Hartford Courant journalist behind a yearlong series on Connecticut’s ruined concrete foundations.
We hear from a Tolland homeowner whose basement is being rebuilt with assistance from the state, and we ask a state legislator who represents towns affected by the crisis: what does Connecticut need to do to further support residents whose homes have been ruined?
Crumbling foundations is not just an issue locally. We check with a homeowner in Ireland, where residents face a similar problem with crumbling concrete.
Has your home been impacted by crumbling foundations? We want to hear from you.
