Repiping Services in Buffalo & Beyond
Experienced Technicians Updating Your Pipe System
If you own an older home or have to constantly repair small leaks in your plumbing system, it may be time to consider a repipe of your entire home. The experts at Roy’s Plumbing, Heating & Cooling can help.
What Is Repiping?
Repiping is the total replacement of the plumbing pipes within your home or business. While most pipe materials are meant to last a long time, they will not last forever and poor maintenance can lead to accelerated deterioration.
Some signs that indicate you may need to replace your pipes include:
- Discolored water
- Frequent leaks
- Reduced water pressure
- Visible signs of corrosion on exposed pipes
Homes that were built in the early 1900’s may have lead pipes. These need to be replaced immediately to address the possibility of lead poisoning. Homes built between 1970 and 1990 may have pipes made of polybutylene, which have been proven unreliable and prone to breakage. Both of these pipe materials should be completely removed and replaced with approved, safe piping.
Repiping Solutions for Your Home
Homes that are in need of a repipe have a few options available to them, including:
- Total Replacement: This is a good choice to pick during a remodel or if your pipes are especially deteriorated. While a total repipe involves breaking through walls and floors, the peace of mind and increased home value make this option attractive for older homes.
- Exposed Replacement: While all of the pipes in your home may need replacing, a cost-saving option is to replace exposed pipes in basements and other areas. You may still need to do a total replacement in the future. This option should only be considered if the pipes behind walls and under floors have been inspected by camera and are deemed to be in acceptable condition.
- PEX Piping: PEX is a flexible piping that can be snaked into the existing pipes. This option allows the pipes within your walls to be repaired without needing extensive reconstruction.
