Among the many issues that some homeowners will have to face, leaks are just some of the minor things. However, major leaks can occur and that can prove to be very difficult to manage, especially when they are underground at the slab level. This might be surprising to some, but it is seriously one of the most frustrating things for a homeowner to deal with, and that’s why Rooter Guard is here to help. When you suspect that there’s an issue underneath the home, call us immediately so that we can help you with fixing the issue.
It’s never fun to discover that you have to deal with slab leaks. They will happen, there’s no way to avoid them, other than hoping that nothing happens with the elements. The problems usually rise when the pipes underneath the home rot, rust, or deteriorate. When this occurs it produces leaks that are the size of pinholes throughout. These small leaks might seem simple, but they truly cause issue over time. The water comes up to the surface where concrete can protect your home for a short time, but then pushes through over time. It is crucial to catch this early so that there is not a great deal of damage, but often times, it’s found when things are too late.
