Broken sewer lines and drain lines often times result in water damage to houses and business in Tampa. Water damage shown in these photos was from a leaking kitchen drain leaking from the unit above. Unfortunately, the down stairs unit with most of the damage had just had all of the cabinets replaced and painting performed. It is very important to budget money to upgrade plumbing when doing any kind of renovation or remodel job. We always recommend having Tampa Bay Plumbers come in to do an inspection of any under slab cast iron drainage if the scope of work does not call for replacing it. Time and time again we have to perform extensive plumbing repairs to houses that just had a major renovation. In some cases, property owners have spent millions to renovate their home, only to find out the pipes are bad under the slab. Water damage can also cause mold to form and spread to other areas of the house.
