One main cause for a damaged foundation is a plumbing leak. Even if you do not yet have a foundation problem, leaking and broken sewer lines can cause significant foundation problems if left untreated.Aftermath Foundation Repair has the experience and knowledge to identify possible leaks in your home. If you notice any of these symptoms, schedule a consultation with us:
- A larger than usual water bill.
- Water seeping through the slab or out from under the slab into surrounding soil.
- A warm or cold feeling under the foundation where the leaks have occurred.
- Unusual wet areas in the landscape around the home.
- A drop in water pressure inside the house.
- Cracking in the foundation or in paved areas around the house.
A leak in your plumbing system could mean that your cast-iron piping needs to be switched to PVC. To repair under slab sanitary piping there are two common methods:
- Tunneling under the foundation or,
- Breaking through the concrete slab.
It is possible that the damage to your plumbing system was caused by tree roots. Tree roots can grow and damage your piping material. This causes blockage and accumulation of sewage that could eventually backup into your home. In order to stop current damage and prevent further damage, we install root barriers to protect your pipes.
