Pennsylvania FAQs

Pennsylvania has a history of sinkhole activity, with some areas of the state having a higher risk due to underlying geology, such as limestone formations. Areas such as Lancaster and York counties have seen a significant number of sinkholes in recent years.

Preventative measures include regular inspection and maintenance of your property, as well as proper grading and drainage to direct water away from the foundation. If you suspect a sinkhole is forming, it is important to contact a licensed geologist or engineer to assess the situation and recommend appropriate action.

Sinkhole coverage is typically not included in Pennsylvania homeowner’s insurance policies, but it can be purchased as an additional endorsement. Coverage amounts and specific terms can vary, so it is important to review your policy and speak with your insurance provider to ensure you have adequate coverage.
