Repiping Specialists Seattle

No matter what kind of pipes your home or business has, the threat of buildup from sediment, mineral buildup, or hard water deposits is a possibility.  It is not always enough to just clean and repair the piping system of a building. Over time, the effectiveness and reliability of pipes will degrade and break down. They will begin to collect sediment and are unable to properly filter out impurities. Buildup in pipes can lead to low pressure and affect the overall health of your water heater and plumbing. When piping systems get to a certain condition or age, it could be time to call a repipe specialist to replace the piping completely in your Seattle home. Here are some of the benefits of repiping:

  1. Stop the leakage of water - Leaking in an old piping system is bound to happen at some point, and likely will happen multiple times. When you repipe a home, it prevents these constant pipe leaks and bursts that would have otherwise continued to happen.
  2. Improve the water pressure - As piping in a home gets old, the water pressure eventually gets weaker. In fact, low water pressure is one of the signs that indicate that it might be time to repipe. As a result, it improves the overall pressure of the water to a healthy level.
  3. Quality water supply - When piping gets older, it usually gets filthier over time. This causes the water that flows through the piping to be dirty as well. It can also cause the water to taste bad or have a foul odor. Repiping cleans out the pipes, and as a result, allows clean water to be supplied to you and your household.
  4. Reduce monthly water billing - Over time, old piping will deteriorate, leaving behind holes and cracks. This loss of water can lead to a significant increase in your water bills. Repiping portions or full sections will stop water waste and potentially lower monthly payments.
  5. Increase the value of your home - Home repairs are not only a necessity, but they can also increase the value of your home as well. Repiping your home is one less thing you’ll need to worry about further down the line. It would also be an incredible benefit for prospective new buyers if you're planning on selling

If you think it is time to re-do your piping, call a repiping specialist to service your Seattle home. Even if you aren’t certain your home needs full or partial repiping, it never hurts to have a professional opinion. A knowledgeable repiping specialist can give you the information you need to make informed decisions. There are multiple factors to consider depending on the current condition of your pipes. The timing of repiping depends on the type and condition of the piping especially. While there are more than a few options for piping materials, you’ll need to consider which one makes the most sense for your property. For example, copper piping lasts 70 to 80 years, CPVC pipes have a  lifespan of 50 to 70 years, PEX piping can last upwards of 50 years and PVC piping lasts about 25 to 45 years.

Depending on the number of pipes that need to be replaced, repipe work can last anywhere from 2 to 4 days or even up to a week. The water in your home will be shut off during the replacement period which can be a major inconvenience. Our specialists will then cut holes and remove sections of  the drywall, depending on where the pipes in your home are located.   When repiping is done, the existing hot and cold pipes are replaced with new ones. Any holes will be patched up and repainted. Debris from the work will be cleaned up and disposed of. You can now rest assured that any future repairs to old piping have been prevented because your home contains new, sturdy piping. It will be a relief for you to know that your pipes will now last the rest of your natural lifetime and beyond.
