What Causes Slab Leaks?
There are plenty of things that can cause a slab leak here in Frisco, Texas. Even the smallest slab leak can cause expensive damage to your home or business. One of the most common causes of a slab leak is shifting soil.
When soil underneath the structure begins to shift, whether that’s caused by underground streams or simply shifting that happens over time, your pipes become strained and can eventually burst. Burst pipes can lead to additional soil shifting and significant damage to your home or business.

Detecting a Slab Leak
There are a few obvious signs of a slab leak that you should look out for. If you notice any of these signs, contact the team at Smith and Son in Frisco, Texas for a world-class repair service. The first and most obvious sign of a slab leak is damaged flooring caused by moisture. If your underground plumbing bursts and leaks through your slab, your flooring can become warped and damaged.
