Repiping FAQs

What is repiping, and why is it necessary?

Repiping involves replacing the plumbing pipes within a home or building. It's necessary when existing pipes become old, corroded, damaged, or are made of outdated materials such as galvanized steel or polybutylene, which are prone to leaks and other issues. Repiping ensures improved water quality, eliminates leaks, prevents water damage, and enhances plumbing system performance. It's a proactive solution to avoid costly repairs and potential health hazards associated with deteriorating pipes, ensuring the longevity and safety of the plumbing system.

How much does repiping cost?

On average, repiping a single-family home can range from $2,000 to $15,000 or more. Factors such as the number of fixtures, the complexity of the installation, and any additional upgrades or repairs needed can influence the final cost. It's advisable to obtain multiple quotes from reputable plumbing contractors to get a more accurate estimate.

When Is It Time to Repipe Your Home?

Upgrading your home's plumbing network with new pipes gives you protection and peace of mind for years to come. After decades of constant use, pipes become corroded, worn down, and more susceptible to major problems like water leaks that can damage your home and yard.

It may be time to replace your pipes if:

  • Your water is discolored. If you notice yellow, brown, or rust-colored water coming from the kitchen faucet or showerhead, the interior of the pipes may be compromised. Contaminated water can pose a health and safety risk that should be addressed by a plumber as soon as possible.
  • The water pressure has decreased. If your water never seems to come out as strong as it should, no matter how high you turn the faucet on, there may be an issue with the pipes. Older homes with original plumbing may not be cut out to meet modern water needs.
  • The pipes are at the end of their lifespan. Galvanized, brass, copper, and cast iron pipes are all designed to last for decades in your home. At some point though, they will need to be replaced. A professional plumber will be able to tell you which pipes your home uses to better know when to install new pipes.
  • There is a leak that cannot be fixed by a repair. Small water leaks can sometimes be fixed by a simple visit from a plumber. If it's more than a loose connection, or you deal with frequent leaks, the problem can quickly snowball. Opting for a replacement will save you money down the road and avoid emergencies and flooding
