What Causes Damage to Underground Cables?
There are many reasons why the underground lines to your home could need repair, but the most common issues include:
- Contact with electrical wires while using tools or heavy equipment.
- Aging wires or other materials.
- Tree roots.
- Repeated freezing and thawing of the ground.

Are Underground Electrical Service Repairs Covered by Insurance?
The short answer is, sometimes. Many insurance companies have started offering the option to insure underground electrical repairs and issues related to your main electrical service.
Once an underground wiring issue is identified as the source of your electrical problems, contact your home insurance provider. Once we’ve visited your property, a 4-Star electrician will provide as much detail as possible to help with your claim.
How Long Does an Underground Electrical Repair Take?
It’s difficult to estimate the timing for an underground repair before an electrician has more information about the problem. But repair timelines will be affected by:
- The amount of cable being repaired or replaced.
- The severity of damage to your electrical wires.
- Complications like tree roots or other unforeseen obstacles.
- Access to the repair site on your property.
