Our Plumbing Water Leak Repair Services

A plumbing leak is not always due to improper maintenance, but it’s always an urgent repair. Sometimes, pipe damage, corrosion, clogs, high water pressure, temperature changes, or root intrusion can disrupt your pipes and lead to cracks and leaks. 

And because your plumbing system is all connected, minor cracks or leaks can damage multiple pipes. That’s why our experts use advanced tools and technology to inspect your plumbing for all potential leak damage fully.

Once we repair your plumbing leak, we’ll test your system and provide you with any additional maintenance advice to prevent future leaks. 

Common Signs You Have a Plumbing Leak

  • Water stains on floors or ceilings 
  • Bubbling or damaged wallpaper or paint
  • Mold or mildew
  • Dripping water sounds
  • Musty or sewage smell 
  • Increasing or unusually high water bill

Sewer Leak Repair Services for Charlotte & Surrounding Areas

Sewer leaks can sometimes be mistaken for water line leaks due to a lack of water discoloration or odor. However, sewer line leaks can quickly become an extreme health hazard in your home if not repaired quickly. It’s important to contact a professional right away if you notice any of these signs of a sewer leak:

  • Unpleasant odors
  • Frequently clogged drains
  • Mold growing around your plumbing
  • Damp floors
  • Excess water in yard 

We use advanced technology for sewer leak detection to determine the source of the issue. Once identified, we’ll be sure to fully repair or replace the line as needed.

Why You Shouldn’t Ignore That Water Leak

Water Damage

Water from leaking pipes can collect in a home’s walls or floors. When an area isn’t allowed to dry, wood begins to rot and can become permanently damaged. When there’s a leak beneath the floor in your basement, it can cause the foundation of your home to crack over time!

Mildew and Mold

Mildew and mold thrive in dark, moist areas and can cause sneezing, coughing, red eyes, and rashes. Some molds cause more serious health issues, and those with preexisting respiratory issues or allergies may have even worse symptoms.

Water Waste

The average person uses between 80 and 100 gallons of water each day. When your plumbing leaks, it can dramatically increase a home’s water usage and inflate the water bill. Even if a leak is slow, it can cost a household significant leaks to repair or replace the line as needed.

Plumbing Leak Repair FAQs

Does homeowners insurance cover plumbing leaks?

Most Charlotte homeowners’ insurance will cover some costs for damage caused by water leaks in the home. However, this will depend on your insurance and coverage type, as well as the cause and extent of the damage. In some cases, coverage may not be provided if the damage was long-term and not sudden. Always speak with your insurance agent to determine the extent of coverage and repair the leak (or plug it.  

Can a plumbing vent pipe leak water?

Yes. If your vent boot on your roof starts leaking due to damage, then this water leakage can appear on your ceilings or walls. If this happens, you must fix the boot on your plumbing vent. Working on your roof or any plumbing repairs should be handled by a professional. 

Does plumbing tape stop leaks?

Yes, temporarily. Plumbing tape can be a helpful temporary solution for minor hairline cracks or leaky pipe fittings until that crack or leak can be repaired appropriately. Call your local Charlotte Benjamin Franklin Plumbing for quality, long-term leak solutions.
