I hired company to remove relatively small Yucca tree & roots from the dirt alongside this bldg. Turns out they busted (?) A galvanized pipe, & something about a "T." The quality plumber says they have to return tomorrow for a major job which now involves a jack hammer & access to the inside. Cringing as I ask for reactions?

Can't answer your question with the limited info you provided.

Generally, sub contractors are liable for damages they cause. Meaning: they have to have insurance.

Then you have to have the proof that they caused the damage. --99.59.x.xxx

Most damage to a water line in the soil outside of a residence doesn't require access to the inside. Maybe the line comes out from the crawl space and the plumber needs access to attach a new line from a fitting under the house to the outside line.

Plumber says the rotten, broken line comes into the unit under the tub & there's no way to get to it. He says one way would be to pull the tub out, but he's trying to see what's on the other side to find another way. Says it's hard to explain. (This guy did a really good job with a big under the water heater leak) --68.5.xx.xx

One house I opened the slap on the wall on the other side of a tub, in the living room, to get to the leaking cast iron drain pipe. Replaced a section of drain pipe, back filled the hole, compacted it and then cemented in a patch. Covered the concrete with the old padding and carpet. Problem solved.

On another home, I went in from the outside, under the foundation and to the broken toilet line, 3 feet inside of the exterior walls. I replaced the pipe and toilet flange and the back filled and cemented back in that area.

Pain in the neck. But this way I could leave the interior flooring in one piece.... --47.156.xx.xx
