A slab leak is a water leak located under the concrete foundation of your Evansville home. These leaks have the potential to create massive damage as they wash out the material supporting the foundation of the house. In addition, cracks in the concrete from the added stress can cause walls and floors to sag and eventually compromise your home’s safety and structural integrity.
The leak detection pros at Sims Electrical, Plumbing & Mechanical use sound amplification devices, moisture sensors, and thermal imaging to locate slab leaks in a non-destructive manner. These tools and years of experience allow our staff to pinpoint hidden leaks even under the several inches of concrete that support your home.
The leak’s location is the deciding factor on the repair technique used to repair it. For example, leaks near the perimeter of the foundation can be accessed by digging from outside your home. In other cases, the leaking water line is abandoned after a new supply line is installed in the attic or walls of your home. This process offers the added benefit of never again worrying about the line leaking under your home’s foundation. The final option is to cut a small access hole in the foundation to repair the leak. Once the repair is pressure tested, the foundation and flooring are repaired.
If you suspect a water leak in your home, call (812) 408-1906. The Sims Electrical, Plumbing & Mechanical team will locate any issue quickly to determine if your home needs a Evansville leak repair or slab leak repair to prevent further damage.
