Time is not on your Pipe’s side… Major investments in your home’s infrastructure can be daunting. However, you should understand how time and age can affect your pipes. We encourage you to keep reading for information that we think you will find to be helpful. And if you still have questions, we’re only a phone call away!
In older homes, the question is not if, but when. Without re-piping, failure of your plumbing is sure to occur. And together, the costs of repairs and replacing plumbing can be extremely expensive. Just think about the damage to your home from a burst pipe or slow leak… Water destroys and warps drywall and wood and then you have to fix your home and replace your pipes. That nightmare is something you’ll want to avoid!
Prioritize your Expenses
If you have an older home, you’ll want a licensed plumber to come and inspect. A plumbing re-pipe is not the end of the world; and today, there are more affordable options available. Of course, for many, copper is the “go-to” standard. However, innovation in plastic polymers led to the development of an affordable and worthwhile alternative – PEX.
