water leak coming from the floor of my 1945 home
I stumbled into this web site searching for answers on how do go about finding the water leak I have in my dining room floor entry. The dining room is located just off the kitchen. My home was built in 1945 with pier and beam construction. There is a crawl space in the floor in one of my hall closets to have access to the underside of the house, however this space is very small. You would have to crawl on your belly and there are beams everywhere the the house rests on. Will I have to rip up my floor to access the leak? I will admit I don't know much about construction especially in older homes.
I will certainly appreciate any advice that anyone can offer. The leak gets bigger daily, and even though I live in south Texas we still get freezing temps here. We got down to 34 last night and I am concerned about the leak freezing over and causing serious plumbing issues.
Thanks again in advance for any advice !
