Leak Detection Services in St. Paul, MN

Avoid Costly Water Damage by Finding & Repairing Hidden Leaks

The water supply lines and drain lines in your St. Paul home are often routed through difficult-to-reach areas such as walls, floors, ceilings, or under foundation slabs. If a leak occurs, you may not even notice it, as it takes time to soak through the adjacent materials. Meanwhile, it is ruining insulation, drywall, and flooring and causing wood framing to rot.

Avoid costly damage and call our team at HomeWorks when you suspect you have a hidden leak somewhere in your St. Paul home. Our expert plumbers are standing by to help with leak detection services, emergency plumbing services, pipe repair and replacement services, and much more.

Leak Detection FAQs

My ceiling is leaking, and I don’t know if the leak is coming from the roof or a pipe. Do I need to figure that out before I call you?

It is best to rule out a roof leak before calling HomeWorks, if only to save yourself time and money. When it is raining outside, go into your attic and check the space above the ceiling leak for signs of dripping water, dampness, or water damage on the underside of the roof. If you cannot see any, call our team for a more thorough investigation of the leak’s source.

How long does leak detection take?

Comprehensive leak detection can take anywhere from a few hours to several hours, depending on the location of the leak, where your pipes are located, and how easy they are to access. We can use several leak detection methods based on these factors, from thermal imaging to pressure testing or physical inspections, all of which take different amounts of time.

Will you tear up my house?

Leak detection services do not necessarily involve physically inspecting the pipes. Often, leaks can be found using non-destructive methods like thermal imaging, sound amplification, or isolating and pressure-testing portions of the plumbing system. If it is necessary to cut into walls, floors, ceilings, or concrete slabs to find the leaks, our experts at HomeWorks will work carefully to do as little damage as possible, and we will work with you to arrange repairs.

What do I need to know before I call you? I don’t know what material my pipes are made of.

While it is helpful for you to know the types of pipes you have before scheduling leak detection services with our experts at HomeWorks, it is not necessary. Our leak detection methods work with most types of pipes, and all we really need to know is where you have spotted water damage or other signs of leaks. Our team can find the source even if you have only noticed symptoms of a leak through changes in your water usage or increased water bills.

How do you find leaks in walls or floors?

Signs like damp drywall, warped flooring, or pooling water can be an easy way to spot a leak’s location, but techniques like thermal imaging can be used to find leaks that are more difficult to spot by measuring temperature differentials between the leaking water and surrounding materials. Leaks can also be found by the sound of dripping or flowing water using specialized amplifiers.
