Why get a Repipe?
Why not fix a leak instead of removing all the hot & cold water piping in your house? Answer: Like a dentist filling a cavity, sometimes all this does is buy you a little time. When you have hot or cold water leaks, poor flow, low water pressure and other symptoms starting to appear in your home, a whole-house repipe is usually the best solution. Engaging in “endless” small repairs, over time will cost you far more than a repipe done in one day.
Is a Repipe very expensive?
No. Having a plumber come out to find and repair a leak will require time to locate the problem. Time to cut out and replace the copper or iron pipe. And time, finding a drywall contractor or handyman to patch the holes, if the plumber won’t do that. All of this can cost $800 to $1500, sometimes more and that’s just one leak. Repipes are more efficient, because the crews are trained to get in, get the job done well and get out, usually all in one day. A second day for inspection and patching.
This is why most contractors will tell you to include as many “small items” while they are there the first time. Coming out with their technicians on a separate day will always make it more expensive.
Will I have to go to a Motel for the day?
Absolutely not. Most repipes are done in one day. Which means the water gets turned off at 8:00 am and gets turned back on around 5:00 in the evening. You are welcome to stay with the crew all day or take the time to handle those errands you’ve been meaning to get to. This is construction. Holes will be made in the walls. There will be tarps and plastic covering your floors and some furniture, near where the work is being done. Once again, you can stay in your house until the work is done, or take in a movie.
Is the work covered by a warranty?
Yes. All our workmanship is covered by a lifetime warranty. This means we back our work and guarantee that it will be done correctly or we’ll promptly fix it at no cost to you.
