The majority of homes in Austin are built with “slab construction.” This means that most homes in our beloved city don’t have crawl spaces or basements. Instead, they are built directly on a concrete foundation sitting flush with the ground. There are some advantages to this design, such as not having to clean out a damp, neglected, underground area. However, when these foundations develop a leak, they can become a major pain and require leak detection and repair ASAP.
Slab leaks pose difficulty because the problematic pipes are generally built directly under the foundation itself. If these unexposed, underground pipes crack or break due to the home settling or age etc., you not only have a major issue, but one that’s not visible!
We're Ready to Help
Some Tell-Tale Signs You Have a Slab Leak
- Puddles on the floor with no apparent source
- Hot spots
- Mildew under carpets
- Rising utility bills (despite consistent usage)
- The sound of running water when the tap is off
- Damp ground
- Movement on your water meter without use
Over time, slab leaks can erode your foundation and cause serious problems for the structure of your home. Their existence overall is inconvenient, costly, and even destructive, as your floor and appliances can be warped by water damage.
When you suspect that your home has a slab leak, it’s time to call in the professionals. Radiant can send over a fully licensed and trained plumber to fix your problem today!
