How slab leaks are repaired
There are several ways that we can repair slab leaks and which one we recommend is going to depend on the cause of the leak in the first place. In many cases, it is necessary to completely redo the pipes. This could include re-piping or pipe rerouting. Re-piping is the process of putting all new pipes in the home and is the most thorough solution. This can sometimes be necessary for ensuring that there are no leaks and it will last the longest.
Pipe rerouting is sometimes a more affordable solution because it is a way to move water away from a leaking pipe without having to replace all of them. The cheapest option is an epoxy restoration. Sometimes this is possible but we will not know for sure until coming out and examining the pipes to determine where the leak is coming from. Ultimately, that is the first step in this entire process.
Thus, it is important to call us for a leak detection so that we can make a recommendation for how to repair it and draw up an estimate for what it will cost to do so. Sometimes, homeowner's insurance will pay for all of this so it is a good idea to call and speak with your insurance agent.
