Hot mop asphalt tar

Any concrete decking will require a waterproof membrane to prevent moisture damage. There are several alternative, I prefer the liquid tar. This hot mop tar creates a water tight surface that will protect the supporting wood construction below from water damage. Lightweight concrete can then be pour directly over the surface for a final surface.

Cracked drain pipe in slab.

Moisture found in concrete slab and soil. Leak was found to be coming from the kitchen drain pipe under the slab surface. Water damage under kitchen sink was removed bur no leak found. The exterior stucco wall was opened to reveal a cracked ABS pipe going into the slab. A little tough but not impossible.

Kitchen Plumbing Leak in Sacramento

We opened up the drywall under the kitchen sink to find the source of the water found outside. The water was determined to be running down the drain pipe and onto the slab. The clean up fitting shown here is at the base of the cabinet, the cracked pipe was below this fitting and continued into the slab. Today we will open the exterior side of the wall to get access to this repair. A section of stucco will be cut out and later patched. New pictures will be posted at that time.
