Gas Service Line leaks from their associated pipelines can be alarming, unwanted and unsafe for the home, both inside and out. Needless to say, leaking gas is a dangerous hazard to the security of a home and often pop-up during a construction project, are discovered when moving into or relocating to a new home, or realized in the midst of a remodeling venture… any of which can quickly and severely become emergencies. Just like water pipelines, Gas Service Lines can become worn, can rust out and corrode, can become damaged, and can and do leak.
