Slab Leak Repair Options
One of the more costly plumbing repairs to worry about is an underground slab leak. They can cause a great deal of damage to your home if your unprepared or away from your home for some time.
What do I do, and where do I start? Here are a few tips on slab leaks, slab leak cost and slab leak repair options to help you throughout the process and to help you minimize costs.
How do I know if I have a slab leak?
The first would of course be water intrusion if the leak has made it’s way through the foundation. Some leaks do not make it through and most people notice that either their water bill has gone up or sometimes people complain they can feel that their floors are warm in certain areas.
What does a slab leak repair cost?
Slab leaks can be very expensive and very intrusive. There are two ways to repair a slab leak. You can either bust through the foundation of your floor or re-route a new plumbing line over head. Here’s what the pricing might look like.
- Slab Leak Detection – $200 – $400
- Slab leak Re-route – $995 – $2200
- Slab Leak Repair – $2000 – $4000
As you can see, the cost can get pretty expensive. As a plumber we would always recommend you have the leak re-routed over head.
In many cases once you have a leak in your copper line, much of the line becomes pitted and can leak in numerous cases. The best thing to do is to delete the line altogether and run a new one.
Slab Leak Repair Insurance
It’s always a good thing to call your insurance company to see if you have coverage for a repair like this. Many times your insurance company will cover the damage that was either caused by the slak leak or the slab leak repair. In the end, you may only end up paying a portion of the total cost and with some insurance companies, nothing at all.
