Should You Repair or Replace Your Pipes?

Over the years, your pipes will start to show signs of wear and tear. Their lifespan is often dependent on how well maintained they are. Piping that is inspected regularly can last as long as 50 years. On average, residential pipes will need to be replaced after 20 to 60 years.

Choosing to repipe is an important decision. How do you know when it’s time to replace your piping? Should you just replace the damaged areas? If you have your pipes inspected and we find that there are only one or two leaks, you can simply opt to replace the affected areas. This will help you save on having to repipe your whole system.

Maintenance is crucial in good working pipes. If your pipes are maintained properly, you can go longer without resorting to repiping. If you have older piping, we recommend having it inspected to make sure it is up to code.

If you have copper piping that is leaking in more than one place, there is a good chance that it is made of low quality copper. This kind of material is not durable enough for high water pressure and will continue to develop new leaks. We recommend replacing these types of pipes as soon as possible to avoid further damage.

Lastly, if you have galvanized pipes, you will definitely need to replace them. Galvanized steel pipes have a tendency to rust and corrode.

What Types of Piping Material Are Best for Repiping?

New piping can add value to your home and improve the quality of your water supply. If you are replacing your current piping, it is important to choose quality materials that are guaranteed to last. Copper and PEX pipes are the more common types of piping installed in homes.

Copper piping is highly durable and less likely to corrode. PEX pipes are made of reliable plastic and more cost effective than copper and other materials. We will help you decide on the best material for your home and budget.
