Repairing foundation damage can be expensive. Unfortunately, foundation issues are common in North Texas. Most of the houses built directly in the area north of Dallas have a slab foundation. In addition, many of the areas where these houses are located have unstable soil. If the site wasn’t well prepared before the development was built, it can lead to foundation issues years after the home was constructed.
If you find yourself needing foundation repair for your slab home, then you also need to know about how this affects your home’s plumbing systems running underneath the slab. Knowing about this ahead of time will help you make the right decisions, take the right steps in the right order, and not be taken by surprise during the whole process. In this article, we’re going to give a short overview of the stages in foundation repair; discuss how this affects the plumbing; and talk about the water and sewer tests that need to be run before and after the repair.
