We've had about 3-4 inches of snow, and because my snow removal service came out, there's close to 2 feet of snow on the side of my driveway.
Truth needs to be told at this point. It was not
my snow removal service that did the damage. It was a friend of mine that does snow removal on business properties. She doesn't normally do private driveways, but it was just happenstance that she was driving by at the same time that DD#2's car was stuck at the end of the apron. We got DD#2's car unstuck, Friend plowed out the apron area then insisted on telling me to move my car into the street and she'll do a quick-plow on the driveway. I told her that I have a service, she really didn't need to do this. She said "No problem! It will take me 5 minuets, then your service can come in and finish the clean up."
When I originally posted, I didn't see a difference between "my snow removal service" or "my friend that did me a favor."
(My snow removal service uses snow blowers.)
I strongly apologize for my misnomer, however, at the time of my OP, I didn't think that it was an important factor. Someone removed the snow from my driveway.
As long as your fix covers and seals the hole, you shouldn't have any problem with it until a pro can assess a permanent fix, and I'd suggest having a plumber check it because the most likely thing I can think of is that your snow removal service hit it with a plow or blower and bottlecapped it, which means a new cover probably won't attach correctly. Assuming you have city sewage, having the cap disappear won't damage the system beyond functioning but it'll stink unless you get it fixed.
Yeah. Now that the snow is melted? I see that there is a considerable amount of damage. While my plastic bowl fix is still tightly holding firm, there are jagged edges on the pipe. The lid and pieces of the pipe were found about 6 inches away. I do need to call out a plumber in order to fix this properly.
If it was, in fact, my service people that caused the damage I wouldn't have any qualms about calling them and expecting them to pay for the damage.
Since the damage was caused by a friend doing a favor?
What would you do?
