Lewisville Plumbing Service: Slab Leak Detection and Repair
The expansion and contraction of the clay soils in the Texas area can cause problems to the foundation of buildings if a water source is left under the slab for a long period of time. When foundation work is done on a home it is possible for pipes to be pulled apart, causing a small leak. It is important to test for slab leaks before and after any changes to the foundation of a building. If you are noticing higher than usual water bills that you can’t account for, it may be due to a slab leak underneath your home.

Our decades of experience allow us to get to the core of the problem quickly and without doing any unnecessary damage to the slab.

Many pipes are designed with an average life span of 25 years. When they begin to fail, they corrode slowly which creates leaks at the weak connecting joints, these corrosion points, and small material cracks gradually progress and if not fixed early can lead to a more than minimal fix. Annual maintenance can extend the life of most pipelines can help avoid a catastrophe to your property.
