Choose the Right Company for Pipe Replacement and Repiping
In most cases, pipes have a lifespan of between 60 and 100 years. If your home was built before the 1960s then it may be time to have them examined by the professional. If it is time to repipe your home, you need to work with a company that can provide the highest quality services in the area. This is a significant project that you do not want to trust to just anyone.
We Will Help You Decide What Type of Pipes Are Best
There are many pipe materials, from copper, PEX, CVPV, PVC – the list goes on and on. You do not need to know what these initials stand for. We are happy to go over the options, their estimated prices, and the pros and cons of each. You can count on us to give you the information needed to make the right decision for your home.
If You Have Lead or Polybutylene Pipes They Need to Be Replaced
It does not matter how old they are – if you have lead pipes or polybutylene pipes then they need to be replaced immediately. Lead pipes can contaminated your drinking water and this can be a serious health risk – especially for children. Polybutylene pipes are very fragile and break easily. It is generally more cost effective to have them replaced instead of waiting for them to burst.
Pipe Leaks Can Be Hazardous
While we can come out for emergency services if your pipes do burst or leak, we always recommend working to prevent leaks in the first place. Many homeowners don’t realize that leaks can be hidden away from plain sight and if not attended to, can cause serious issues within the home and especially its foundation. Mold infestation and wall rot are just two of the issues that can come to light.
