Slab Leak Repair Services in Jacksonville, Gainesville, Ocala, & Lake City
Among the many structural problems that are difficult to detect, a slab leak is one of the most common types. A slab leak occurs when the area below a concrete slab is being invaded by a water leak. The clay shifting below your foundation is the most likely cause of the leak. Whenever the soil below your property experiences heavy shifting or heaving, the slab receives a massive amount of pressure, which eventually causes it to develop cracks. Once water can travel deep into the concrete, your home (especially those built over 30 years ago) will sustain various problems that can affect the structural strength. Moreover, the crevices created can permeate into your indoor living space and outdoor space, causing the following issues:
- Foul Smelling Odors
- Mold and Mildew
- Damaged Floors, Rugs, Carpets
- Landscaping Damage
- Foundation Damage
