Your home’s foundation is under a lot of pressure. But you probably don’t have to worry about the foundation—not yet at least. What you should pay attention to are the plumbing pipes and lines that run underneath your foundation. You see, all it takes is for a slight crack to form and you’ll be facing extensive and costly damage. And it gets worse. From a tiny crack to a major break, a slab leak puts your home’s foundation at risk for destruction.
Thankfully, our team at Ray The Plumber is here to help. With our swift slab leak repair services, we’ll stop a problem from spiraling into a catastrophe. Better yet, we’ll use our expertise to eliminate a potential problem before it even arises. Now that’s peace of mind.
Many homes have main plumbing lines installed within or below the concrete slab of the foundation. That’s because this is the most efficient and least expensive way to network water.
But here’s the thing: Even though that concrete slab helps your foundation retain its structural strength, it provides no protection for your pipes. As a result, the immense pressure bearing down on those pipes can result in slab leaks.
Slab leaks have a really bad reputation—and for good reason. Even the smallest crack, break or leak can deteriorate into a pricey disaster. If this serious problem is left unnoticed or unresolved, it can cause rotting and mold. This affects the support structure of your home. But that’s not all. If you breathe in the mold for an extended period of time, it causes health concerns, too.
In short, a slab leak can threaten your home, your health, your budget and, ultimately, your peace of mind.
The best defense against a slab leak is to have it repaired as soon as it arises. But how do you know when to take action?
Well, to start, look out for these warning signs:
Slab leaks can be professionally detected, too. When you turn to our team, we’ll use innovative technology to diagnose the cause of the leak and determine the appropriate resolution.
