Congressman Joe Courtney

Representing the 2nd District of Connecticut

Crumbling Concrete Foundations

I have been closely following the news of failing concrete foundations in eastern Connecticut, and have heard directly from some homeowners who have encountered this serious issue. To provide assistance to these homeowners, I have been in contact with Governor Malloy's office and the Department of Consumer Protection to help coordinate a response. 

If you are concerned that your home may be affected, you can file a complaint with the Department of Consumer Protection here.

For additional information or questions, contact the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection at 1-800-842-2649 or email 

The Department of Consumer Protection has also issued a warning to homeowners to be wary of scams to repair or replace faulty concrete. I urge consumers to take precautions before making any payments or signing contracts--read more here about ways to avoid scams.

As the state coordinates assistance and information for homeowners, my office is always available as a resource for eastern Connecticut constituents. Please feel free to call my office at 860-886-0139 or email me with any questions
