It may surprise you to learn that pipes don’t last forever – at least, not in good condition. Pipes usually last about 50 years. If your property was constructed in the 1970s or earlier, you should start looking into a process called “repiping.”
As the name implies, repiping involves replacing the pipes in your home once they get too old to function correctly. There are a few other situations that require repiping, which we’ll cover below. Keep reading to learn more from our plumber!
If you feel your home, commercial property, or residential building could benefit from plumbing pipe replacement, call Joe the Plumber for repiping services in Houston and beyond.
The process of repiping involves replacing part of or all of the pipes in your home or commercial property. The first step of a repiping job is an inspection to determine whether a partial or complete replacement will be necessary. Your plumber will then find the pipes, cut holes into the floors and drywall to access them, and replace them one by one. After the repiping is done, your contractor will check for any leaks and repair them before sealing up the pipes with drywall or floor cement. Repiping an entire property will likely mean the replacement of drainage pipes and the water supply pipes.
Some signs that you need repiping may be obvious (and inconvenient), but others require knowledge about the type of pipes you have and when your property was constructed. That’s where a repipe specialist like Joe the Plumber comes in handy.
