You COULD try to get it done yourself, but you’ve already learned about the intricate, tiny-margin-for-error procedures used to fix the leaking pipes in a home’s foundation.
Southlake, Texas has been recognized as one of the richest cities in the United States by a number of sources–and its 76092 zip code was ranked as the nation’s richest zip code for its population size.
A penny saved is a penny earned, but in the case of slab leak repair, the stakes are high enough to try not to do it on the cheap.
Think about what DIY really means here.
Are you REALLY sure you want to:
Trust the expertise of a YouTube video, which doesn’t account for the specific nuances of your home or the Southlake area, over the expertise of a professional (who is likely covered by your homeowner’s insurance)?
Take a crack at identifying the source of the leak yourself? Many people don’t realize it takes specialized equipment and tools just to FIND the leak, much more to fix it.
But really, would you:
Take a jackhammer to your home’s precious concrete foundation, blasting away bits of the house’s all-important base in hopes that you’ll get to the source of the problem–providing that you correctly identified its location in the first place?
Risk further damaging the pipes in the foundation, starting the process all over again?
Discover that after a failed attempt at doing the complicated repair yourself, that your homeowner’s insurance doesn’t cover professional repairs after a DIY-gone-wrong?
Pay what would likely amount to thousands of dollars in additional repairs resulting from said botched DIY project, with no help from insurance?
Why risk it?
The best way you could “do-it-yourself” would be to do your homework (which it seems you’re doing, reading this article series) and find the best local professionals who can expertly identify and fix slab leaks in a timely and excellent fashion.
