When it comes to water leaking into your home or onto your property, it can put a lot of stress on you and your family. Water leaks can happen for a variety of reasons, but the key is knowing what to do when you’re facing a leak. One of the most serious leaks that can occur is a slab leak.

Most Culpeper homeowners will deal with a water leak at some point throughout their life. Even the most inconveniently placed pipe in your home can usually be accessed through the wall or attic. However, slab leaks are exceptionally tricky to find a repair. Your home hosts a network of plumbing to feed water to your entire house. This means that pipes run all throughout your walls, ceilings, floors and into your foundation.
When a pipe is damaged or wears out inside your foundation, water can begin leaking. This is a slab leak. Since your entire home is resting on top of your foundation, it’s important to act quickly to limit any structural damage from the leaking water. Whether it’s a small drip or a steady flow, water damage to your slab can be disastrous.
The most important aspect of a slab leak is early detection. If water is allowed to flow for days or weeks, major damage could occur to your home. That’s why keeping an eye out for any strange signs in and around your home is essential. These are some of the most common signs of a slab leak:
Most of these symptoms are concerning enough for a homeowner to call for a water leak repair. You might not even know that the water is leaking from your slab until professionals arrive to evaluate the system! That’s why calling on Vern’s early when you spot any signs of water leaking is your best course of action.
Once our team assesses your home and the slab leak, we can form a plan for repair. First things first, we’ll make sure that your water is turned off to stop the leak. Next, we’ll use your shutoff valves to cut off as many water outlets as possible throughout your home. Once we have control of the path of the water, we can turn it on, measuring when and where the water pressure starts to drop.
We use technology to narrow down the exact location of the leak without getting our eyes inside your slab. That’s one of the benefits of getting professional help right away. When our team is on the job, you’ll feel supported and confident that everything is progressing smoothly to get your slab repaired. Our plumbers are always open and honest when it comes to recommending repairs on your slab. You’ll know how invasive it will be, how long it could take and how much the project is going to cost you before we start any work.
