When it comes to slab leaks, homeowners are often unaware of the problem until it becomes a major cause for concern. This type of leak can happen in the foundation that your house sits on just as easily as it can happen to the water pipes under the foundation. The causes of a slab leak are as varied as the location where the leak occurs, but can include extensive water damage to the home, excessive humidity in the home, and much more. It can be one of the worst types of damage to a home because of its location and the damage done prior to its detection.
