Customer Question
I live approximately 12 miles...
I live approximately 12 miles from a rocket booster plant in McGregor Texas. The simulators are set off about 2 or 3 times a day. All the tiles in my house have cracked, crown molding is coming apart from the ceiling. Even my driveway is cracking and probably the slab of the house itself.

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If your home is being damaged by the vibrations from the plant, your first step is you need a civil engineer to come out and inspect the home and write a report regarding the damage and linking the cause to the vibrations Once you have that, you have grounds to sue the plant for the damage these vibrations are causing to your home. However, without an engineering report, you do not have the proof required to sue the plant.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
