Must-Know Homeowner Responsibility


Homeownership is a blessing, but also a great responsibility. Whether residing in an older home or a brand new house; owners need to ensure proper steps are taken to maintain it. Whether looking to retain value for eventual resale or simply to protect against major issues, being aware of the condition of the piping in the home is essential, and hiring a professional plumber when it is time to repipe is simply a must!

How Do I Know If I Need To Repipe My Home?

Unfortunately homeowners are generally not aware of pipe issues until a major event occurs. There are tell tell signs though that savvy households keep an eye out for that can indicate a problem prior to a major issue. A change in water pressure is one of the first signs that may go unnoticed, but could be due to an issue with water pipes. Discolored water, lack of hot water control, corrosion, as well as small leaks, can also be a sign that a major issue is lurking in the near future. While these issues may seem small and unimportant, catching the issue prior to an all out break can save money, time, as well as a big mess.

How Long Will It Take?

The time necessary to change out or fix pipes throughout the house depends on various things. The size of the home is one of the first things to keep in mind, as well as the age of the piping throughout. If the issue is caught prior to a massive leak it will also have a far quicker turn around time. For a smaller home the time necessary to repipe could be as little as one day, with a larger home or one with a bigger issue taking three to five days. While this is simply an estimate, it is essential for homeowners to speak with the proper repiping specialists to get a better understanding of the issue and the time that will be required to repair it.

Why Should I Hire a Professional Plumbing Company?

While those day to day plumbers are great for a clogged drain or backed up toilet, repiping is critical to the utility and function of the kitchen and restrooms in the home and a specialist can often do the job quicker, and have more experience and knowledge in this area. It is essential that consumers check out ratings, cost, time, as well as reputation to ensure that the job is done right the first time.

Repiping can be a huge issue, but with the right company doing the work the headache, mess, and stress can be dealt with as swiftly as the worry about your home's piping.
