While the plumbing in your home is not something you need to think about replacing on a regular basis, it will eventually wear out just like anything else. Plumbing systems do not contain many moving parts, so they last much longer than other systems in your home. Whether it is just one part of the system that finally passes the point of no return or the entire thing, there will come a time when you cannot put off plumbing replacement any longer.
Since plumbing systems reach from one corner of a house to another, replacing it is a big job. Our team of expert plumbers will walk you through every step of the process and complete full or partial plumbing replacement in a reasonable amount of time and within your budget.
For homeowners considering plumbing replacements for their piping, we wanted to let you know about the option of polyethylene tubing or PEX. With PEX you would be able to replace more of your tubing without tearing up more of your wall, because this piping can be fed into the wall. This will allow our contractors to replace more piping for less money.
One reason to think about replacing all or part of your plumbing system is if you are experiencing persistent problems in terms of leaks, clogs or water pressure. You can patch up old pipes to a certain extent, and regular maintenance will help keep them clear, but eventually the degradation can become so widespread that you will have no other option than to replace it.
Although it is not a pleasant prospect to replace your plumbing, the quality of the replacement parts can be quite a pleasant surprise. Chances are that the plumbing in your house was quite old to begin with and the materials and equipment available today will be a significant improvement to what you have installed.
Because so much of the decline in the efficiency and performance of your old plumbing system happens gradually over time, you might not realize just how bad it has gotten. It is easy to get used to things like low water pressure or having to wait a long time for hot water to reach the tap. But with new, state-of-the-art parts in place, these experiences become things of the past.
Of course, your entire plumbing system may not need replaced. Perhaps you just need new bathroom fixtures or a new kitchen appliance. If your dishwasher or other major appliance is on its last legs, we’ll be happy to replace it and haul the old, broken one back with us when we go.
