Water is perhaps the most invasive and damaging of all substances. While it may seem odd that something so vital to life can be so detrimental to physical properties, Atlanta Leak Detection has witnessed firsthand the damage that water causes to homes and other structures. In fact, water could be compromising your home’s foundation without you realizing it.
In many residential plumbing systems, plumbing pipes run underneath or through the concrete slab foundation. The orientation of your Atlanta property, the slope of the land and the type of soil at your property all can affect how water can intrude and cause damage to your foundation. Consider that if your home foundation shifts only a few degrees, this can result in damage to plumbing pipes. If leaks occur, your foundation and home are at risk of suffering extensive and costly damage.
Signs of Water Damage to Your Slab Foundation
Sadly, in most cases, when you detect that water has penetrated your slab foundation, extensive damage may have already occurred. In fact, it is this damage that most often signals there are problems with your foundation. Telltale damage signs can include:
- Higher water bills
- Cracks in walls
- Windows and doors that no longer open or close smoothly
- Puddles around your home’s foundation or nearby in the yard
- Uneven floors
- Porches or decks that separate from the home
All these and more can signal major problems with your concrete slab foundation. These problems can even cause your home to become structurally unsound, and unsafe for continued habitation.
