Will Insurance Pay for Slab Leak Detection and Repair?

Slab Leak Detection and Repair

Dutton Plumbing is here to take care of all of your slab leak detection needs, but you might be wondering if you are the one who has to foot the bill for repairing the leak if it turns out that you have one. A slab leak happens whenever a water pipe springs a leak, either underneath or inside of the foundation of your home. Slab leaks are more difficult to repair than normal leaks since they are not visible to the naked eye the way that normal leaks are.

Diligent Detection

Whether you have to pay for a slab leak or not, you will want to look into slab leak detection as soon as possible since there is a chance that a slab leak can lead to flooding. The price of repairing slab leaks can vary from region to region and also depend on the extent of the leaks, but the average cost is roughly $1,500.

As far as your homeowner’s insurance policy paying for a slab leak, the answer is that you will most likely have to pay for it yourself. The reason for this is because your insurance insures your home rather than the foundation that your home is built on. One thing to keep in mind is that your insurance policy just might take care of any damage caused by the flooding from a slab leak.
