How Can Slab Leaks Affect Your Home?
When water builds under the foundation of your home, it can create some serious problems. The ground can shift or heave around the leak, causing a crack in the slab. If your slab foundation shifts, it could result in damage to your home such as cracks in walls, floors or tile. Similarly, health hazards like mold and mildew can occur because of the increased moisture in your home. Additionally, the moisture can also weaken the roof and walls of your home, in some instance creating dangerous conditions. No matter where the slab leak is, our expert technicians can provide your home with efficient and professional repair services.
What Causes Slab Leaks To Occur?
Slab leaks can happen for several reasons. Sometimes the piping wears out or it was poorly assembled. It may have been damaged during construction of your home. Depending on what your piping is made of, rust can be a factor. Poor soil that expands and contracts can shift soil and cause pipes to break; or tree roots growing in and around the pipes can cause damage. Commercial products designed to clean drain pipes often do more harm than good because they can eat through the walls of the pipes.

Every situation is different, so once we locate your leak, we will consult with you about your options. Depending on the location, it may be wise to expose the pipe by using a jackhammer to break away a section of the slab. Sometimes, if the leak is located under cabinetry, a bathtub or expensive tile flooring, it is better to abandon the leaking pipe and reroute new plumbing elsewhere. We will consider the age of your plumbing and the frequency of slab repairs in your neighborhood. If you have relatively new plumbing or leaks occur frequently in the area, you may save a lot of money and frustration by moving your plumbing above the slab.
