Sewer Cracks, Sewer Breaks, and Root Intrusions
Sewer damage is a plumbing issue that can be caused by a few different things.
- Many houses built before 1980 will have inferior outdated materials used in their sewer lines. Concrete and ceramic are two examples. These lines can deteriorate over time and create cracks or breaks where groundwater, dirt, and other materials are let in, and sewage can be leaked out. These leaks can damage your lawn and expose you to unpleasant smells throughout your property.
- With the older materials the ground natural settling and shifting and cause breakages, and cracks in the line—sometimes even crush a line until it’s partially or completely closed off.
- Another issue for the sewer system is when tree roots grow into or through the side sewer. This causes cracks and leaks that need to be fixed. The older sewer materials are more susceptible, but it can happen to any line. This is why drain cleaning companies also use the name “Rooter”, since they will often grind up the roots in the line.
- Our plumbing and sewer specialists, will be able to help you choose whether a repair or complete replacement is best. From start to finish you benefit from our expertise doing the sewer repair Seattle area residents need.
