Blasting and Property Damage
Complaints filed with local fire departments and newspaper and news broadcast accounts all plainly list the damages blasting can cause to residential homes.
Residents living near blast sites have suffered from cracks in home foundations, basement flooding from groundwater entering through basement cracks, cracks in interior walls, ceiling collapse, broken well pumps, damage to wells, groundwater contamination from blasting residue and cracks in in-ground pools.
Homeowner's insurance will not cover damages caused by blasting. When residents file for damages with the blasting company's insurance, they are told that their homes are "settling."
Other common insurance excuses for not paying claims for blasting damage include: workmanship, age, guttering, drainage, drought and heavy rains run-off.
At a Selectmen's Hearing in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, residents complained about Maine Drilling and Blasting. "We've got problems you can't believe," said one resident. Houses affected had as much as $10,000 to $15,000 in damage. Liberty Mutual, which insured the blasting done by Maine Drilling and Blasting was refusing to pay. "They're just walking all over us," one resident stated.
