When to Consider Whole Home Repiping

When to Consider Whole Home Repiping

You can expect your Texas house to last a century, but most likely, the plumbing won’t. Age takes its toll on everything, including your piping. Remember, people are not the only thing that crack under pressure—piping does as well when conditions warrant it, so you should be prepared to say goodbye to your original pipes at some point during the process of enjoying your home. But, there is no need to fear—a qualified Sugar Land plumber is here to help!

Tell-Tale Signs

If you begin to notice your water bill escalating, either all of a sudden or over time, don’t ignore it. If you realize the water flow throughout your house is interrupted or trickling and you begin to miss your regular downpour, you need to be concerned. You may require whole house repiping.

In addition to pipes becoming worn out due to age, they encounter other conditions, such as:

  • Cracks
  • Warps
  • Bulges
  • Breaks

At the first signs of piping problems, one of our expert plumbers can rescue you before a flood ensues. A plumbing repair may save the day, but a prolonged problem could rob your pocket book of your hard-earned money in the form of a costly emergency. Preventing these problems before they happen is the best way to protect your home from disaster.

Enemies of the Pipes

Some situations are not pipe-friendly and can interfere with your piping:

  • Adverse weather conditions
  • Chemicals that are not pipe-friendly
  • Sewer backup resulting from the septic tank
  • Clogs due to foreign objects
  • Corrosion because of the piping material
  • Extreme water temperature

Pipe enemies may weaken them beyond plumbing repair. With ongoing water pressure, leaks, cracks or breakage may result. Following an assessment, our qualified plumbers at Trademark Home Services can help you determine if a whole house repiping is the best or most cost-effective option for your situation.
