Sinkholes are all over the news lately, which has naturally led to a lot of media inquiries for LRE Foundation Repair Following the sinkhole in Clermont that caused the collapse of a three-story building at Summer Bay Resort, NBC News published a story by reporter Diana Orlick of CNBC, who spoke with Frank Vitale, vice president and general manager of LRE Foundation Repair. The increase in sinkhole occurrences has led many to believe that overdevelopment in the state might have led to the surge.

Vitale told CNBC that a sinkhole could be caused by a number of different factors, including aquifer, settlement issues, issues with the clay, buried debris and more. It's important for a homeowner to contact an engineer to have the sinkhole inspected in order to determine the cause and the proper solution.

Vitale also says the leading Florida sinkhole repair company has seen a definite increase in work over the last five years. LRE Foundation Repair has been in business for over 25 years and has completed over 4,500 sinkhole repair jobs.
