Have you noticed more frequent water leaks in your home? Are you dealing with more and more drain clogs? Your pipes may be the culprit.

Is It Worth Repiping a House?
If you live in an older home, you may be faced with the decision to replace the internal systems. One of the most important of these systems is your plumbing pipes. While repiping is an extensive solution compared to repairing a single pipe, it presents the opportunity to improve the quality of your water and prevent potential plumbing disasters like water leaks. Repiping can even increase your water pressure, because your old pipes may be clogged with sediment buildup.
It’s time to consider repiping if:
- You have galvanized pipes or polybutylene pipes
- Your home is more than 50 years old; galvanized pipes can last between 80-100 years, while polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipes last a mere 25-40 years
- You’ve had one too many leaking pipes
- You have low water pressure
What is Pipe Tunneling?
Tunneling is a trenchless method of installing or repairing drainage and sewer pipes. This is especially effective for pipes that run under landscaped yards, roads, and concrete slabs.
Trenchless excavation has several benefits, including:
- Saves time. Using the trenchless method takes less time than the traditional way because less digging is required, and the line can be installed more quickly.
- Less intrusive. This is the best option for places where digging a trench isn’t ideal. Because trenchless excavation only requires two holes to be dug, the yard or slab is safe from damage.
- Cost-effective. Because trenchless repair and installation takes less time and requires less destructive digging, the cost is lower.
“Though I did not receive service from this company. When I requested a quote, the owner was quick to respond to let me know the status of his time frame for performing service. He took the time to have a discussion with me and was very knowledgeable and more than willing to teach me a thing or two. Diligently easing my concerns over my plumbing issue and even willing to make a recommendation for a company that could help me. When he does open for business, he has won my loyalty. "Thorough" is definitely justified.”G.B.
