Slab Leak Repair and Service
What Is a Slab Leak?
Exactly as their name would suggest, slab leaks are water leaks that can occur in the pipes in your home’s concrete foundation or “slab.” Slab leaks are especially dangerous because they can easily go unnoticed and cause critical damage to a home or business’ structure, requiring thousands of dollars’ worth of repairs. In California, slab leaks are most commonly caused by earthquakes and other foundational shifts which place pressure on a building’s pipes, though they can also develop over time as a result of corrosion. Slab leaks can also occur if a building’s pipes are damaged or during installation or improperly fitted.
