When Does My Home Need Repiping Services?
If you’re unsure of when your home needs to be repiped, you’re not alone. To investigate this matter, simply look at exposed pipes in your basement or crawl space. What you will be looking for is discoloration, stains, flaking, dimpling, and other signs of corrosion. While doing so, take note of any leaks--there could be others that you can’t see.
Other than these problems, if your home was built around 1920, it probably has lead pipes. This is dangerous, as lead can seep into your water and cause lead poisoning. If your home is about to undergo renovations, this could be the ideal time to repipe. Keep in mind that a whole house repiping job can take 5-10 days. Because it is done in sections, you will be able to stay in your home if choose to, although you might be limited to one bathroom.
We know our customers love saving money! So, we offer great prices as well as coupons to be used on our services.
Choosing the Type of Pipes
There are two main types of plumbing that should be used in your home: copper and PEX. PEX is short for cross-linked polyethylene. Each type of piping has its benefits and drawbacks and our technicians can guide you on the best choice for your home. PEX piping is typically less expensive and easier to install; does not get pinhole leaks; is great in extreme temperatures; and is more resistant to bursting because of its flexibility. Copper piping, while more expensive, are longer lasting and recyclable; can be used outside; are resistant to bacteria; and offer a bit more safety in natural disasters.
Each of these types of piping clearly has benefits and it can be difficult to discern which is best. Aside from speaking with our technicians, many people opt for what matches the price they are willing to spend, both on the time it takes to install the pipes and the actual pipes themselves.
