Signs You Need Foundation Leak Repair
Since slab leaks affect the pipes underneath your home’s concrete slab, they can be difficult to detect until months or years of accumulated damage starts to cause problems with your plumbing or foundation. Your home may have an untreated slab leak if you notice:
- The sound of running water, even when everything is turned off
- Increasing water bills without changing your usage
- Visible damage in your walls or foundation, such as cracks
- Mold or mildew growth
- Hot or cold spots in your floor or foundation
- Standing water around the foundation
If you notice any of the above in your home, call us as soon as possible. Acting quickly will reduce repair costs and the amount of damage done to your house.
Why are Slab Leaks Dangerous?
The reason you need quick foundation leak repair is the same reason you should repair any burst pipe as soon as possible. Excess moisture will prompt mildew and mold growth, which will make your air quality worse and damage your walls and floor. Flooding can also damage other parts of your plumbing, rot away structural support, and destroy your lawn.
Leaks underneath your concrete slab carry the extra risk of washing away sediment and causing your foundation to shift or crack. This damage to your foundation can undermine the structural integrity of your whole house. Fast, professional repairs are vital to preventing expensive disasters.

Our Professional Plumbing Solutions
When our plumbers arrive at your property, they employ advanced home foundation leak detection techniques such as video camera inspection to determine the exact location of your plumbing problem. This lets us perform spot repairs where we only have to open a small portion of the slab to access and repair the leak.
While larger leaks may require pipe replacements, we can fix smaller leaks with a cost-effective epoxy pipe covering. Older pipes with a history of leaks may be better to replace, or we can reroute the entire line. This option is more expensive but will safeguard your home against future slab leaks.
