Must-Know Homeowner Responsibility


How do I know if I need to repipe my home?

When you have a home there are many things that you need to make sure that you take care of on a regular basis. Your pipes are one of these things that you will need to make sure that you are taking care of as well. You may be thinking that it is time to repipe your home, but how do you know if it is actually time to repipe your home? When there is a strange color coming out of your faucets with your water, this could be a sign that you may have rust in your pipes. If you are loosing hot water quickly, and your hot water heater isn’t broken, this could also be a sign that you need to repipe your home.

How long will it take to repipe my home?


Repiping your home takes a longer time than most repairs, as the repiping company will need to get permits and inspections before the job is finished. On the first day, the permit must be granted by the city. The second day of the job all of the installation will take place. On the third day, there will be an inspection that has to take place from the city. The fourth day, the piping professionals can finally patch up all of the walls in your home. The full job is going to take just about 4 days. There are some companies that can do the inspection by themselves, but this is very rare. These companies will be able to get the job done much more quickly.

Why should I hire a professional plumbing company?

Repiping your home is a very extensive job. A regular plumber is just not going to have the skills or tools to do this job effectively. A plumbing company is going to have much more experience when it comes to conforming to city code. They will also have much more experience when it comes to ripping out walls and installing new drywall. It is really worth the extra money it costs to hire a professional plumbing company.
