How Long Does Repiping a house Take?
Repiping a house depends on how big the home is, but typically you can expect from a couple days to a couple weeks. To have a better idea of repiping duration, you should reach out to your local repiping plumber. Nevertheless, having a repipe service is beneficial to the home and will help increase the value as well if you plan to sell in the near future.
When Repiping Is Necessary
As a homeowner, you know that everything will need to be replaced at some point. This includes the components of your plumbing system. While plumbing pipes are designed to last for decades, they will experience normal wear-and-tear with age. Weak and degraded pipes are more prone to leaks, which puts your home at greater risk of water damage.
Repiping should be considered when:
- Your home is 50 years old or older
- The water has a reddish or brownish color
- Your water pressure is low
- The pipes leak frequently
- There is corrosion or rust on visible sections of pipe
If you have noticed any of these signs, it is important to have a professional inspection of your plumbing system. Older homes often have pipe materials, such as galvanized pipes, that tend to rust, corrode, and deteriorate with age. During the inspection, we can evaluate the overall condition of the pipes and determine if repiping is necessary. When the pipes need to be replaced, we will discuss the options for new pipe material, and create a plan for your repiping project.
The Repiping Process
The whole house repiping process involves replacing all the pipes in your plumbing system. During the construction process, plumbing pipes are installed in homes before the drywall is put in place. When the pipes must be replaced, cutting into the drywall and ceiling is unavoidable. We will need to remove some small sections of drywall to access the pipes and replace them.
Although the repiping process is invasive, we work minimize the damage and take steps to protect your furniture, flooring, and possessions. When the work is finished, we clean up the mess and leave your home in the same condition we found it. The length of time that is needed to complete the job varies, depending on the size of the home. You can expect whole house repiping to take at least several days for the average home.
