Piping is a fundamental part of any existing building or new construction. It involves installing a system of pipes to carry liquids and gases to or from the home.
Your sewer lines will carry waste to the central municipal sewer or your septic system, while water lines are responsible from bring clean, potable water to your home for drinking, washing, and performing other essential daily tasks. It is thus of the utmost importance that this vital component of your plumbing system is well maintained and free from clogs, root intrusions, cracks, and other potential problems.
What is Involved in Repiping a House?
Repiping is the process of replacing old, damaged pipes with new pipes. It will likely be required at some point for any home or commercial structure as pipes age.
While this is a big plumbing job, our team is trained on the latest technology to help get the job done as efficiently as possible.
How Long Does Repiping a House Take?
Repiping a house's plumbing isn't a one-size-fits-all job, so the time it takes can differ. In general, a small to medium-sized house might require a few days to a week for repiping.
For larger homes or those with complex plumbing configurations, the project might stretch out over several weeks. To pinpoint the exact duration, it's wise to engage an experienced plumber who can evaluate your particular situation.

Signs of a burst or leaky pipe are usually obvious. They may include water stains, cracks in paint, unexplained puddles or unusually lush landscaping, a sudden increase in your water bill, or a musty smell of mold or mildew. When only a few pipes are damaged, a simple repair is probably the right solution. On the other hand, if your pipes are old and their condition is affecting performance, it may be time to consider repiping.
Our team will take a look at your plumbing to determine its condition and make our recommendations based on your needs and your budget.
Signs that repiping may be the best solution include:
- Low water pressure: Consistently low pressure is a sign that your pipes are corroded.
- Poor water quality: Pipes that are breaking down can cause the taste and smell of your water to deteriorate over time.
- Rising water bills: If your water bill is steadily increasing although your usage has not changed, it may be a sign that your pipes are deteriorating.
- Frequent repairs: If you are constantly having to call a plumber to repair burst or leaky pipes, it may be more cost effective to repipe your home.
- Old pipes: If you live in an older home, you may have aging pipes. Like anything else, pipes may not perform as well and start to break down with advanced age.
