Slab Leak Claim Tampa

What do I do if I have a slab leak in Tampa?

Tampa is one of the most attractive cities in the Sunshine State of Florida. Its great cultural vibe, outdoor activities, warm weather, and picturesque evenings attract multiple tourists all year round. Since it is a coastal area, the groundwater table is very high; so most houses do not have basements. It is perilous to construct a basement because it is nearly impossible to dig deep. Hence, one has to build homes here on a slab.

Let’s understand why slabs may develop leaks resulting in insurance claims?

Overflowing water and increased water pressure are some of the reasons why these houses need to reroute or maintain their piping. Another problem is that mold grows within 24 to 48 hours in such moist surroundings and starts affecting the air quality. Bad air quality makes it difficult for people with asthma or allergies to breathe. Poor piping and slab leaks lead to gallons of water wastage, apart from affecting your health and personal property. Therefore, as a homeowner, you have to be vigilant about the condition of the piping under the slabs of your house. Regular maintenance that includes waterproofing and wrapping are some popular techniques to protect slab leakage. However, due to floods, coastal storms, severe rainfall, and hurricanes, these techniques might not always work. 

A slab leak insurance claim can be tricky, especially because most home insurances do not cover daily wear and tear maintenance. You may need to get service line coverage for these additional costs. Slab leaks are primarily due to piping issues like pipe bursts or leaks, causing water to rise and flood your floors. Apart from personal property damage, imagine the upheaval it will cause to your life!
