Does Home Owners Insurance cover foundation repair?

It depends on how the foundation was damaged and whether or not it was done by a covered cause or not. If a vehicle runs off the road and hits your home then it would be . covered whether or not the person had insurance. If the person did not have insurance, your homeowners policy covers damage caused by a vehicle. If the damage was caused by settling of the home and this caused the foundation to crack then no, the homeowner's insurance will not pay for this repair because it was caused by lack of properly putting in the foundation correctly or a lack of maintenance. Maintenance is never covered by your homeowner's insurance policy. Maintenance is the responsibility of the homeowner and it is never ending.

Homeowners Insurance is a "Hazard Insurance Policy" which covers "Sudden Losses" due to the specified perils listed on the policy.

It is quite safe to excavate right up next to a properly designed and built foundation of a 1- or 2-story house, as long as you first locate the gas, electric sewer and water lines, and take care not to break these.The foundation wall receives a varying load from the fill next to it. When dry, the load is less; when the soil is saturated, the load is more. But unless you have a foundation on an extremely steep hill, or very close to a lake or ocean, or the water table is very high, you are probably going to be OK.
