Some people may not realize that water is one of the most destructive forces on the planet. Over time, it can eat through some of the hardest and densest materials on the planet. Just take a look at the Grand Canyon. The slab under your house is no exception. The slab is the reinforced concrete foundation that holds up your home. It’s probably one of the most important parts of your house, if not the most important. If that starts to leak you could have huge problems that can potentially cost you a lot of money. We’ve outlined some of common slab leak symptoms that we see in Denver.
Slab leaks occur when the cement in your foundation starts to crack, bubble or bend. Other than a natural disaster like an earthquake or tornado, this is usually caused by water leaks under the slab. The two main causes of that are water line leaks and sewer line leaks.
If you do have a slab leak, the resulting problems could be disastrous. As the ground under your home begins to swell or sag, it can cause your slab to shift. You will start to notice visible cracks in the slab, bend or form a dome shape.
