Slab Leak Repair Cost

When your concrete slab foundation begins to leak, the costs for repair will rise the longer you wait. It is best to bite the bullet and call in the right repair company as soon as possible to ensure the problem has been fixed in a timely manner and in the correct way. To simply detect the leak, the average cost is between $125 and $400. Then comes the actual repair, which involves using a jackhammer on the concrete foundation and repairing the leak. The cost for this particular job will cost around $500 to $800 to repair. Some homeowners may find they pay $1,000 to $4,000, however. This all depends on local rates and other factors that play a major part. You will most likely pay over $1,000 in total to have a slab leak repaired completely. It is costly, but not as bad as if you let conditions worsen.

Concrete Slab Leak Repair

A lot of homes these days are constructed on top of a concrete slab foundation – a single layer of concrete that is a few inches thick, which generally rests on crushed gravel. Pressurized water pipes and sewer lines are often inserted underneath this slab before it has been poured in place. Unfortunately, these pipes can often deteriorate, creating a slab leak in the home.

Slab leaks tend to be quite hard to detect, though the common symptoms include spikes in your water bill, lower water pressure, and a constant sound of water running. Once the leak occurs, the foundation of your home may begin to crack or settle. Mildew may form in the walls of the basement, and the floor could feel warm if the hot water line has begun to leak in certain spots. It is important to find the problem and repair the issue as quickly as possible before conditions worsen.

We have used Bienvenu Brothers several times over the last few years, and we have always been extremely satisfied with the service and quality work. Bienvenu always makes every effort to get someone out as soon as possible. They just finished a job that has increased my respect even more. Seven weeks ago, to the day, one of our bathrooms backed up in the early afternoon. Bienvenu had a sewer cleaning truck out later that day. Unfortunate, they were unable to clear the line and it was determined that we needed video inspection to determine the problem. When the video crew came out they determined that there was a problem with the parish sewer line. The parish would come but couldn’t clean the line because of a lift station problem. This repeat every couple of days for weeks. Keith and Louis made calls and did all they could to try to get the problem resolved. Finally, the parish fixed the lift station, cleared the line and corrected an issue with our connection to the main line. The next day, today, Bienvenu had Frank and his crew out, and they made the necessary repair to my line in a couple of hours. FINALLY, we can again use our own shower and toilet. Keith and Louis were persistent in trying to keep things moving, and Frank did a quick and great job of finishing up. I can’t imagine ever using anyone else!

Dear Bienvenu Brothers, I am way behind in my correspondence, but I wanted to thank you for the quick, efficient, honest service I received on December 19, 2011. My hot H2O heater went out. I called Bienvenu Brothers because of a recommendation. It was so close to the holidays, but yet you made it possible for my family to take hot showers that night. The computer board went out, and Kirk said it was under warranty and only charged me for the service fee. Since I had never used you before, I was amazed. Thanks for everything!

I just wanted to thank you for the outstanding service on my new State water heater. I bought the unit from Coburn’s and my husband and a friend installed it. It kept coding out and would not work. I called the manufacturer (State) and they recommended that I call you guys. Vint came out and did some troubleshooting. He contacted State Technical Support, and they sent the part over-night to me. Unfortunately, when the new part was installed, it still did not work, so I called Vint, and he called State again for another part. I have never had such wonderful customer service and was very impressed with the employees’ diligence in staying on top of the matter. Vicki called me to set up my appointments and was so sweet and friendly. Louis Bienvenu originally took my call and was very attentive to my problem and made everything happen. It was a very pleasant experience all the way around, and I just wanted to say “THANKS!”  Next time I have a plumbing problem, I will definitely be giving you guys a call. Thanks again and may God bless you, your family and your business!

Dear Keith: A brief thank you note for your help with our recent plumbing problems. We were appreciative of your prompt attention. You, Kirk, Louis, Robbie and Chris were all extremely professional, good attitudes and were very efficient. We would recommend you highly to anyone we know needing plumbing-heating-cooling repairs. Again, thank you.

Dear Mr. Bienvenu: Thank you so much for allowing us to pay off our new hot water heater. I also appreciate your help with this costly bill, and also with the excellent service we received from your Technicians. We look forward to doing business with you again in the future.

Dear Sirs: Just to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You all did a wonderful job and people have given you praise.

Dear Mr. Bienvenu: I wish to commend your entire staff for helping me get my mom’s sewer problem handled in an efficient and effective manner. Your office assistant (I’m sorry I don’t remember her name listened to my plight and relayed my concerns to the plumber. Louis Jr worked with me over the course of two days assuring me that he would give the problem his best effort but could not guarantee we wouldn’t have to dig up the entire front yard. His integrity and dedication got the job done! And then the gentleman (I think his name was Rick) who my mom talked with, assured her that her bill could be paid over a few months’ time, which is “life saving” to an elderly person on a fixed income, who wishes to remain independent. I could not have asked for more. 

Mrs. F.

Just wanted to pass on my sincere appreciation for everything you did with my tankless water heater. Hope I don’t have to call anytime soon.
