Concrete is a versatile and stable substance that is used widely in a variety of applications. The Portland cement mixture is mixed with water and aggregates to form a soupy consistency that can then be molded into virtually any shape. Internal components can also be added to increase the strength of the finished concrete product. Many modern homes throughout Georgia are built upon a concrete slab foundation.
While water is an essential ingredient in the formation of concrete, it is an insidious enemy once the mixture has hardened. Water intrusion in or around a concrete slab foundation can cause serious damage, and often before the homeowner realizes anything is amiss.
Slab Leak Detection Services
Atlanta Leak Detection offers professional slab leak detection services to help Georgia homeowners prevent expensive damage to their homes. Many homes and businesses that are built on a concrete slab have plumbing systems with piping running underneath or through the concrete slab. These pipes can leak, causing erosion of the surrounding substrate or the foundation itself.
Further, erosion can cause the foundation itself to shift or tilt, further compromising plumbing and the structural integrity of the home. Your home’s location, orientation, the slope of the property in question and even the type of soil can all be a factor that contributes to possible erosion and foundation issues. If slab leak detection is not performed in time to locate the problem, your home could become uninhabitable until extensive repairs are made.
