Plumbing Emergencies Can Cause Thousands of Dollars in Damage If Not Addressed Quickly!

Emergency plumbing problems can’t wait—call Veterans Plumbing now!

Even small water leaks left untreated can cause major damage to your home that can be costly to repair. The plumbing in your home — under the kitchen sink, behind the shower or running alongside the bathtub — is part of an efficient, simple system. However, this system needs maintenance to perform optimally, and it may require hiring a plumber for emergency assistance to stop a leak or prevent major damage to your home. If left untreated (or undetected), the costs of a plumbing leak are substantial.

If left untreated, a plumbing leak can cause damage to your walls. When pipes running behind walls burst or begin to leak, they moisten the drywall; eventually, this moisture makes its way through the walls and produces wet spots. If you notice persistent wetness or a musty smell, you may have a leak. A professional can fix the problem and, if the problem is still in its early stages, replace only a section of the drywall.


Over time, the moisture may lead to black mold, requiring not only the services of a mold remediation company, but also requiring the removal of large wall sections. This can be very costly. 100 square feet of drywall can cost as much as $400 to replace, while mold remediation can run anywhere from $500 to $3,000.

Another concern is damage to flooring. Water always flows downhill, which means any leaks in a kitchen or bathroom will pool on and under your floors.
In a bathroom, you may notice loose tiles next to the tub or shower or along the tub edging. You might also see water on the floor after a bath or shower not due to spills or splashing.


In your kitchen, be on the lookout for warping or discolored floorboards, especially next to a dishwasher or fridge with a water line.

Hardwood floors cost between $12 and $30 per square foot to replace, after the affected area has been cleaned and the leak fixed. Replacing single tiles isn’t an expensive undertaking, but you can incur significant costs if the subfloor of your bathroom becomes damaged.

Removing and replacing swelled floorboards and installing new tile may cost anywhere from $1,000 to $1,500.
