Foundation and Slab Leak Repair
If your house sits on a concrete slab, be aware that as the house settles, your slab may crack in places. This does not always warrant a problem, and there are warning signs inside and outside the home if trouble is brewing.
- Wet or damp carpet.
- Warped flooring or high spots.
- Musty smell.
- Soft areas of ground in your yard.
- Overly wet areas of grass — never dries out.
Slab leak repair cost can add up quickly.
Smashing up parts of the foundation of your house or digging up areas of your lawn are an awful sight. That may be the only way to repair a slab leak.
To add fuel to that fire, repairing the collateral damage to flooring, walls, cabinetry, and furniture can be more expensive than the plumbing repair itself.

Of course in order to repair a leak in a slab you must first detect where it is.

Propane and Natural Gas Leaks
One of the most concerning types of leaks for any home or business is the gas leak. Propane or natural gas leaks possess the potential danger of causing an explosion that could level a house or building with much collateral damage to the surrounding area.
It is important if you have gas appliances or heat in your home or commercial property, you have regular inspections and perform essential maintenance as required by law and the manufacturer of your equipment. Safety for life and property are priority.
Shelton Plumbing performs inspections for gas leaks using special sensors that are able to hone in on the tiniest pinhole leak.
Gas Leak Detection
In an effort to make propane and natural gas more noticeable to humans (and trained animals), an additive is mixed into the gas that makes it smell like rotten eggs or sometimes garlic.
If you are in an environment where gas is present and you detect the smell of rotten eggs, there is a possible gas leak.
If you have access to the shut off valve, turn the gas off and leave the premises. Don’t touch any electrical equipment such as a light switch as it may cause a spark. Wait until you get outside before you place a call for help.
There are a few other signs to watch for that indicate a possible gas leak. You might listen for any hissing sound or look for dirt blowing near your pipes. Do you have dead plants or do your plants have discolored leaves? Is the flame of your gas stove an orange or yellow color?*
