Leaks and Other Plumbing Repairs
One of the most frequent calls we take for plumbing services in Roanoke year round is leak detection and repair. With so many different leak and clog-related concerns that can take place in your home, preventative measures can go a long way. According to the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety®, there are a host of clues that might mean a plumbing leak, and being aware of that could help you handle the issue before it ends up as pricey water damage:
- A higher water bill than usual could uncover a leak.
- Pipes that bang loudly and consistently are a sign of trouble.
- Rust stains in your sinks or rust-tinged water can be signs of bigger problems.
- Moisture on your floors or in your walls can point to a plumbing leak.
- Signs of wet soil erosion near your home’s foundation can mean you have a leak.
