Slab leaks have the potential to cause a lot of property damage and cost a lot of money in repairs. When you call, we will send out a licensed plumber to determine if there is a slab leak, then provide the appropriate solution.
One of the more frustrating plumbing situations for homeowners is when there is a leak somewhere in the house, but you have no idea that it exists. Usually, this type of scenario can’t carry on for too much time without signs popping up for you to see, but in the meantime, there is damage being done that may require costly repairs. One type of leak that has these “hidden” potential is called a slab leak.

Definition of a Slab Leak
By definition, a slab leak refers to a leak in the copper piping that runs underneath the concrete foundation of your house. That concrete floor, also known as a concrete “slab” is the ideal hiding spot for a water leak, because there is no way the average homeowner would ever think of it as a possibility. Once a leak develops under there, it can more or less carry on as it pleases until a sign points you or your plumber in that direction.

Possible Slab Leak Warning Signs
Although a slab leak may take some time to let itself be known, there are some signs that can help you out. If you see signs of moisture in your home like damp carpets, wood floors or baseboards, that can be a telltale sign. You may also notice unusual hot areas on the floor that aren’t usually there, or patches of mold growing with no other logical sources. The most clearly recognized sign of a slab leak, if it goes on long enough, is that your water bill will skyrocket from the massive amount of water escaping from this below slab leak and into the ground beneath your house.
What Kind of Damage Can Slab Leaks Cause?
Depending on how long the slab leak continues before it is resolved, there is pretty big range of issues that could occur. Depending upon the duration of the slab leak, it may cause no real damage at all, or it could cause extensive damage to your your concrete slab, carpets, wood flooring, fixtures, and could even flood the area under your home resulting in extensive foundation issues.
