Soil underneath your home can expand or shrink with moisture, causing the foundation to shift and move. This will put pressure onto your plumbing, causing cracks and breaks. The worst part isn’t usually the repair the pipes need, but the access you have to create to find the problem in question. One of the most costly factors of plumbing damage is creating the access to the plumbing, not the repair itself. The sooner you work on getting the foundation stabilized, the less likely your pipes will become affected.
Loss of Home Value and Increased Costs
One of the more slow but steady effects of foundation repair is your utilities. With the windows and doors shifting, it creates increased air leaking from inside the home and raises your use of your air conditioner or heater. The pressure on your pipes can cause leaking and increase the water bill. These may start out in small increases but quickly excellerates into a larger than life bill each month
