Underground Sewer Repair

A properly functioning main sewer line should never back up. If you are experiencing constant drain stoppages, you may have a problem. Obstructions and pipe deterioration are the main reasons for sewer line backups. Obstructions could be from a partial or completely collapsed pipe due to root penetration from trees or shifting soil from ground or subsurface disturbances.

If you have a sewer drain problem that seems to re-occur periodically, we can help you get to the bottom of the problem by performing a video inspection of your sewer drains. We can tell you before someone starts digging up your yard if your problems are from a corroded, damaged or broken pipe, root growth, a stoppage in the line, or a foreign object clogging the pipe. Plus, we can determine the exact location of the problem.

Call us today and schedule sewer camera technician to come out and evaluate the condition of your main sewer line. We will give you all the options from partial sewer line spot repair to a full line replacement.

Plumbing Leaks & Repairs

Your home’s water piping system carries both hot and cold water to different fixtures throughout your home. Without it, your home would not be a safe environment. Water is needed to drink, clean, wash, flush, and to do many other things we sometimes take for granted in our daily lives. When one of the pipes in your water piping system experiences a leak, it can disrupt everything and also cause damage to the property in your home as well.

If you’re a homeowner and you’ve experienced a leaking water pipe in your home, you know that it can be a serious problem and can result in water damage to your property and possibly even health concerns for you and your family if not attended to in a timely fashion. It is always best to address a water leak within the first 24 hours in order to prevent a small problem from becoming a big one. If you do experience a water pipe leak, call Raven Mechanical right away, we offer 24-Hour Emergency Service, 7 days a week.

Slab Water Leak Detection & Repair

A slab leak or any number of water leaks can waste thousands of gallons of water in the average Texas household each year. With growing drought concerns and ever-increasing water rates this is a major concern. Not to mention, leaking pipes can damage your home and may even become hazardous to your health.

So what’s a slab leak? In slab type home construction, a thin, reinforced concrete slab is laid on the prepared ground instead of digging a foundation into the ground and lining it with concrete.

In the case of slab foundation construction, the plumbing for the home is run under the concrete slab. The plumbing can remain trouble-free for decades, but shifting in the soil and aging of the plumbing materials can ultimately cause some failure in the system, leading to leaks that become apparent over time.

The location of the leak must then be located and the pipes repaired or replaced. In some cases, breaks in the slab itself may be at fault. These small defects must then be located and repaired.

A slab leak can cause a number of troubling symptoms in your home that indicate you need the services of an experienced plumber:

  1. Increasing water bills. If your water bill is much higher than it normally is, it could be a sign that you have a leak under the slab foundation.
  2. Damp odors in the house. The leak may cause your home to suddenly develop a damp, moldy odor from the constant wetness.
  3. Wet swampy areas in the yard. The flow of water from under the slab may accumulate in areas of the yard that stay constantly wet and spongy.
  4. Shifting of the foundation. You may notice unevenness in the floor as the foundation shifts on the water-soaked soil.

In the past, the plumbers had to drill into the foundation to repair leaks under the home. This procedure often required tearing up the flooring and considerable amounts of mess in the house. However, today, new methods and technologies allow us to find leaks utilizing other methods.

Raven Mechanical has been diagnosing and repairing water leaks throughout the Texas area. Our expert technicians constantly receive the best training and use cutting edge technology to quickly and effectively locate and repair your leak. Call us today – we work around the clock, 24-7, for your peace of mind.
