A complete pipe replacement, or repiping, is sometimes necessary for old and malfunctioning plumbing systems. Aging and exposure naturally impact your pipes over time, but some materials are more susceptible to corrosion, like galvanized steel. If you last scheduled a plumbing service a while ago, you might not be aware of your system’s current condition. But at Lion Home Service, we can help inspect your plumbing and bring it up to code. If our assessment reveals deteriorating and damaged pipes, you can rely on our repiping services for help. Old, corroded lines can introduce harmful substances into your plumbing system and water supply. So if you suspect piping problems at home, don’t hesitate to call our specialists for a potential repiping appointment.
Most plumbers install pipes consisting of material that can last for years, even decades. But older commercial and residential lines need a repipe to continue functioning. Old piping, left unchecked, can lead to the following issues:
As you can see, a repipe is essential for outdated plumbing systems. Otherwise, the above problems can wreak havoc on your home or business, not to mention your family. But you can turn to Lion Home Service to avoid these risks. Our plumbers offer cost-effective repipe services backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee. And when we work on your lines, we use high-quality replacement materials that last. So you can expect a comprehensive, thoroughly planned pipe replacement with the help of our team. We want to ensure your new system is safe, up-to-date, and ready to meet your needs.
During an inspection, our repipe specialists will examine the state of your lines and determine if they need replacement. Some issues, like small leaks, can be fixed with quick repairs. But signs of extensive damage, corrosion, and aging are more suited to repiping. So let’s review some of those signs:
Many homes built before 1960 used galvanized steel as piping material. At the time, galvanization improved durability and kept steel intact. However, today’s plumbers no longer use this material, opting for superior materials like copper. That’s because galvanized steel develops rust, corrosion, and leaking problems over time, endangering your plumbing system and water supply. So if you live in an older home with galvanized plumbing, consider scheduling a galvanized pipe replacement with Lion Home Service. The health problems and expenses attached to galvanized steel pipes aren’t worth risking.
Copper is a highly durable material that takes well to plumbing systems. It resists corrosion, lasts long, and conducts heat better than other materials. Considering the above benefits and temperature regulation capabilities, many homeowners favor copper in their piping systems. However, a copper repipe comes at a cost. It is one of the most expensive piping materials, often costing multiple times more than PEX or plastic installation. Installing copper pipes can be an excellent investment, but there’s no hiding the significant upfront costs.
For a more cost-effective alternative to copper repiping, consider installing PEX piping. PEX (Cross-Linked Polyethylene) is a cost-effective, versatile material that plumbers can easily install on your property. In addition, PEX doesn’t corrode and is unlikely to burst in cold weather. Although this material has a shorter lifespan than copper, its practical nature suits many homes and businesses.
The cost of a whole-house repipe can vary by thousands of dollars. It depends on multiple factors, including house specifications, local regulations, the material of choice, and more. Some of the variables behind our pricing include the following:
