I tried to get several quotes but nobody could get as low as them, and when i hired them...they sent them out fast and it was complete, foundation patched back up before i got home from work. My friend has a commercial friend plumber that told me to make sure they did certain things. They sent pics of their work, commercial plumber said it was correct, everything is working again....sooo happy with this company!! Thank you! May hire them for my add on 😉

Broken pipe under the foundation of a Grapevine home.


We just learned about what these leaks are and how they can potentially ruin your property investment and/or your health.


So… how’d we get here?


Primary causes of slab leaks Excessive stress on a home’s water pipes are what leads to a slab leak, and this stress can happen a number of different ways.


For example:


Improper installation of pipes during the home’s construction phase can set them up for failure, creating pressure problems.   The soil is a big deal, too. Grapevine has a vast variety of different types of soil, from the sandy and clay-based to the chemically affected.

Here’s why it matters:


Pipes can be put at risk by being set on ground that shifts beneath it over time. Soil also can contain chemicals that corrode the pipes or the concrete.


And don’t forget the temperature:


Electrolysis–which is a chemical decomposition that takes place when an electric current finds its way into the pipes–can lead to a leak in cold water pipes. Hot water pipes face threats from the outside, facing corrosion from various sources. Finally, good old fashioned wear and tear can lead to a leak through repeated vibrations–many times through situations that couldn’t be avoided and were completely normal.


Now that you know


Now that you know what causes slab leaks, it’s important to find out whether or not you have one happening in your own home.


And believe us, it’s not always easy to tell by yourself.


That’s why it’s a good idea to keep your friendly Grapevine-area neighbors Master Repair Plumbing in your phone’s contacts to make sure your home (and the people in it) are as safe as can be.
