If you’ve already experienced a water leak from an old copper and galvanized pipe in your home, chances are you can look forward to more leaking or burst pipes in the coming months or years. The leak could be obvious or coming from pipes that are located behind building structures and hidden from view. Your only telltale sign may be a larger than normal water bill with no reasonable explanation. You may see cracking, peeling paint along ceilings, walls and baseboards. Flooring may be warped and damp. You might detect a musty odor when the water leak has persisted for several days or more. Besides the costs associated with water leak detection when a pipe leaks, you are also facing costly water damage repairs and possibly mold remediation if the problem is not resolved immediately.
Fortunately the answer is to replace all the old and outdated plumbing for clean water pipes within your home. Whole House Repiping is performed by plumbing experts who are specially trained and complete most homes in less than two days. During a repipe, you will still be able to remain in your home. Part of the process includes making holes in walls where the new piping is to be installed. Following the installation, these holes are patched and your walls are returned to their pre-repipe condition. Typically at least one bathroom is made available for your use overnight. The contractor is responsible for obtaining the required permits from the city and an inspection to assure compliance with building codes.
