Slab Tunnel vs Jackhammer & Reroute
We like to tunnel in order to protect the foundation of your home.
Once you bust something solid it is no longer solid. You can patch but it will never be solid or as strong again. Meaning we would cause a weakness in the strongest investment to you and your family.
Tunnel is the most effective way to keep things normal and more cost effective in the long run. It’s as simple as going under doing the repair and putting it back. While all you see is a hole in dirt for a day or maybe more.
The last way is something many use to get in the door and make things sound Simple. It’s called a reroute. This causes the company to put many holes in walls and sometimes Floors to do a patch. This can get costly as they can’t always trace lines properly so 2 holes become 3,4, or even 10. To do another simple patch. Making their cheap price skyrocket and makes your home a mess. Also causing you to bring in more contractors to fix this problem. The only time this is best is when you do a total repipe not just a bandaid.
This is our way of cheap isn’t always good and good isn’t cheap. The tunnel isn’t cheap but it’s the best way to keep you in the home normal day to day. Also helps you sleep knowing your repair isn’t just a temporary fix.
