Recover from slab leaks in style with the power of Hercules!

Slab Foundation Repairs

The majority of homes in South Texas are built upon slab foundations. That’s a lot of homes depending on their slab to remain stable! As massive and heavy as a block of concrete is, your foundation can sustain damage over the years. When your slab foundation cracks, shifts, sinks or otherwise moves, your home is put at risk.

Luckily, Hercules Foundation Repair has spent years gaining all the knowledge needed to address your slab repairs effectively. When it comes to the foundation of your home, there’s no room for error. Our team uses attention to detail and precision to recommend and execute the best solution to your slab issues. Gain back your peace of mind today with powerful foundation repairs!

How Does Slab Repair Work?

For all intents and purposes, a slab is a large block of concrete with rebar running throughout it. When the soil shifts underneath the slab or other pressures cause it to shift, the entire slab can tilt, crack and become unstable. This is where we come in!

We implement a set of piles or piers underneath the slab to raise certain areas up. This brings the slab to a level status again and saves your home from dangerous movement.

Slab Leak Foundation Repair

Water is capable of a lot of destruction. If given enough time, a single drop of water can turn a mountain into a canyon, so imagine what it can do to the concrete slab of your home’s foundation. A slab leak occurs when there’s a break in the pipes that run within the slab that supports your home. If left unchecked, it can cause tremendous damage to your entire home.

Given that they’re so difficult to detect, they can trickle away for months, subtly raising your utility bill and leaving you with extensive water damage. Luckily, if the worst happens and you deal with a slab leak, the professionals at Hercules Foundation Repair are here with the foundation repair you need.

Hidden Signs You Might Have A Slab Leak

Given the nature of slab leaks, they can be hard to detect. Hidden, buried deep within the foundation of your home, sometimes the only signs of a slab leak are some of the secondary issues that they are capable of causing. This means it’s advantageous for homeowners to know what these secondary issues are so they can be more aware of when they may be dealing with a potential slab leak.

To help our customers out, we’ve put together the most common signs of a slab leak.

  • Rising Water Bills — Our water meters keep track of every drop that passes through the main lines attached to our homes, and we’re charged for every ounce. An unexplained spike in your water bill is one of the most obvious signs that you might be dealing with a hidden slab leak.
  • Unexplained Dampness — Water and dampness should never be ignored, especially when the source of that water isn’t immediately obvious. Slab leaks can cause water to pool and accumulate in odd places, like the center of the floor. Any unexplained wetness should be investigated as soon as possible.
  • Water Sounds — Just like actual dampness, unexplained water noises should never be ignored. If you hear hissing, dripping or any other sort of water sounds and can’t seem to find the source, it could be a sign of a slab leak hidden beneath your feet working to destroy the foundation of your home.
  • Cracks In The Walls Or Foundation — Slab leaks have the potential to cause water damage that can warp and crack your walls and foundation. Every minor fault lowers the overall structural integrity of your home and increases the chance of extensive damage.

Post-Leak Foundation Solutions

Once you’ve worked with a local plumber to get your water leak identified and repaired, your foundation may be left with some damage. Both the leaking water and the plumbers may leave behind damage to the concrete keeping your home stable. That’s when calling our team at Hercules is the best last step in this process.

We understand that you’d like to get this unfortunate event behind you, so you can trust that we’ll work quickly and efficiently to make any repairs needed.
