When Should Pipes be Replaced?
If you feel that you’ve gotten to a point where you need to replace the piping in your home or its been recommended by a plumber, we always recommend you get as many opinions you can get. A re-pipe is usually an expensive plumbing service and depending on your situation maybe you can only replace the exposed piping. This means replacing piping in an unfinished basement, a crawlspace, attic, or utility room anything a plumber can easily access. This will help reduce costs and can still make a major difference. When you are renovating a part of the house, it is best to use that time to look into the piping of your home, if you find that it needs to be replaced then what better time to work on it than when you are already in the middle of a renovation project. If the walls are open then a plumber can get a re-pipe done in a much faster time frame and this will significantly reduce the price.
