Signs You Have a Slab Leak In Central Florida & Atlanta Slab

It just takes a small water leak, under a concrete slab, under a sink, behind a wall, even under the oak tree in the front yard, to create big trouble. 

Water leaks often happen without anyone noticing, quickly, and they are typically an expensive repair. Ignoring it just makes it worse and you will be lucky if your insurance company helps bail you out. 

Most home insurance policies don’t cover damage relate to neglected maintenance or normal wear and tear.
