Although building a home on concrete can be an effective practice, it can also create serious plumbing issues as the home ages. When your home has a slab foundation, concrete is poured within a mold to be cured. When the plumbing is installed during construction of the house, the pipes are either laid in the dirt under the concrete slab, or become encased in the concrete when it is poured. This is called under slab plumbing. This can make it difficult if a pipe cracks or bursts, as the pipe is nearly impossible to reach without breaking the concrete. At Plumbing Solutions, LLC, we have an experienced team of plumbing contractors and specialized tools to reveal and repair this tricky type of plumbing.
Concrete is a porous material, allowing for a leaky pipe to cause wet, soft spots on your floor. This can also result in foul odors in your home, as leaking water can lead to mold growth or even a break in the sewer line. This can also attract unwanted pests into your home, such as termites and cockroaches. If you notice cracks in your walls, this can indicate that there was a shift in your home’s foundation as a result of a leak.
