Signs You Need A Whole-Home Repipe
The two biggest factors in determining the health of your pipes are age and material. There are many other things that can affect how your pipes deteriorate, but how old they are and what they’re made of are the most important.
First of all, the age of your pipes can tell you a great deal about how they were installed, what material was used and even how healthy they probably are. For example, homes built several decades ago are not like homes built in recent years. This could mean that your pipes are deteriorating sooner than you think. Time is also a huge proponent of deterioration — pipes are not meant to last forever!
It could also mean that the material your pipes are made of is either dangerous or prone to leaks and damage. Early in the 1900s, lead pipes were used in homes. Since then, we’ve discovered that lead can leach into your water and pose a major risk to your health. Other materials like polybutylene are highly susceptible to the oxidants in water, deteriorating inside where visual inspections can’t see. If your home is piped with materials like these, a whole-home repipe is likely necessary.
How Do They Repipe My Home?
A whole-home repipe is usually not a decision made lightly due to the length or involvement of the project, but it can be necessary all the same. We want you to know exactly what you’re signing up for when you decide to repipe your home.
Planning & Permits
Our team first has to evaluate the situation to get the scope of the project. Depending on the size of your home and all the places that pipes are located, your project could be longer or shorter than others. In addition, our team may need to get permits and supplies before they start working to avoid any delays during the project. Once our team has a chance to plan the job out, you’ll get a more accurate estimate of the time your home repipe will take.
The Home Repiping
Most home repiping projects take between two and five days, barring complications. Our team must access all of the pipes in your home, then remove and handle any old components carefully. They’ll then insert the new pipes precisely to ensure the system works effortlessly in your home.
Clean-Up & Patching
Although our team is extremely respectful of your home, repiping simply creates dust and mess. We limit this disruption as much as we can, and will always clean up after ourselves when the job is done. After we’ve successfully replaced your pipes, our team will also make minor patches to cover any changes that were made to access the pipes. You can be sure your home will be left as clean as we found it!
