Why Are Slab Leaks Dangerous?
Slab leaks are different from regular water leaks in your home. These leaks occur underneath the concrete slab that supports the foundation of your home. A leak underneath the concrete slab is dangerous because as water rushes away from the area, it also removes packed dirt, sand and other sediment that are designed to provide support to the slab. If enough of this dirt gets washed away, you may experience serious structural problems in your home that require extensive and costly repairs.

How to Tell if it’s a Slab Leak
If you experience any of the following signs or symptoms in your home, you may have a leak underneath your concrete slab:
- Hearing the sound of rushing water in your walls or floor.
- Standing water near your home’s foundation.
- Cold spots on your walls or floor.
- A spike in your water bill.
- Water stains.
- Mold growing on the floor or walls.
How Are Slab Leaks Repaired?
There are a number of ways professionals solve a slab leak. Depending on the age of your piping system, the process changes slightly. Some of the ways we repair slab leaks include:
- Spot Repair - Spot repair opens up the slab and repairs the issue at the source.
- Reroute - Sometimes rerouting or replacing the entire water line is best, particularly with older plumbing.
- Epoxy- When there are multiple small leaks, an epoxy covering over the existing pipe is often the repair method of choice.
