A slab leak by definition is when water pipes inside or underneath the concrete structure of a house (also known as a "slab") start leaking. A slab leak occurs when water pipes underneath a house crack or break.
If a slab leak is not repaired or replaced promptly it starts to cause serious damage to a home. One of the significant damages that can happen is when a slab leak starts to cause damage to the structure of a home, through cracked flooring and walls. Considering how badly slab leaks can damage a home they must be first detected and then repaired immediately.

Are slab leaks and the resulting water damage covered under my Homeowner Insurance?
It is always best that you refer to your particular insurance policy and written coverage. However, the majority of insurance companies will not cover plumbing. They will cover the resulting water damage on the premise that the leak is a result of a sudden burst or break.
Some insurance carriers will cover the cost associated with locating, accessing and the put back of concrete involved in repairing the actual leak (they won't cover the cost associated with the actual pipe repair).
What is best? A direct repair of the slab leak via the concrete removal and repair, or a above ground pipe re-route?
It is always best to re-route or repipe the water system. If you have had one leak the chances of another leak occurring is high. By eliminating the underground piping you greatly reduce the chances of another flood to your home.
