PEX piping inside a home

Home Repiping in Columbia

A big home repiping project is a massive undertaking—and it's important to know what to expect before, during, and after repiping your house. While your repiping project might be caused by an emergency, it's also a great opportunity to update your home with modern materials, more water connections across the interior and exterior, and long-lasting, energy-efficient options. At 1-800-Plumber +Air, we're here to help you through the entire repiping house process. You can also contact our team for free upfront pricing.

When Do I Need Repiping Services?

Over time, residential pipes wear down. Hard water can weaken the interiors, and different compositions of water can even pull minerals out of the metal surfaces. If your home has old, weakened pipes, they're much more likely to crack or leak. Some of the most common signs that you need repipe services from a certified repipe contractor include:

  • Noisy pipes that shriek have audible thumping from water hammer or make new noises over time

  • Plumbing leaks that become more and more frequent, especially in areas without any apparent sources of damage

  • Visibly corroded pipes with water droplets inside. This indicates that your pipes are rusting.

  • Low water pressure, as corrosion and buildup, may block the easy flow of water within the pipes.

If any problems sound familiar, call a plumbing service with repipe contractors. They can assess the problems and determine whether plumbing failures are due to old age, a single breakage, or something else.

How Much Does It Cost to Repipe a House?

As homes get older, repiping the house becomes unavoidable. Older material styles won't last forever, and waiting too long could lead to expensive leaks and water damage. But it's also a big undertaking to repipe a house, so it's important to know what your repipe services will cost. We recommend scheduling an appointment with our Columbia, South Carolina, team. We can provide free upfront pricing for the whole project so you know what to expect. Some of the different factors that will affect the entire cost are:

Number of Plumbing Fixtures

The more plumbing fixtures you have, the more materials and labor the project will require. But because this project involves going into your walls, it's also a great opportunity to add new plumbing fixtures you've been looking forward to.

Type of Piping

Older homes might have galvanized steel or even cast iron pipes. You can upgrade these with stronger, safer, and more reliable materials, such as specialty PVCs and lead-free copper options. The material you select will impact the price, but it can also increase your home's value and water quality.

Home Size

The bigger the home, the more materials you need. Also, the more drywall your repipe contractor will need to remove and replace. The size of your home can also change how long it takes to complete the entire project.

Permitting Requirements

One of the advantages of choosing a highly reputable plumbing service to repipe your house is that they will do the work the right way. This includes having a manufacturer certification for specialty materials, completing the work according to local building codes, and securing the proper permits to do all the work. The complexity of the permit requirements for your specific neighborhood will impact the final repiping house cost.

What can you expect to pay?

Typically, you can expect to invest between $4,000 - $15,000 to re-pipe your house. A number of factors depend on the following factors:

  • The number of plumbing fixtures
  • Type of piping
  • Size of house
  • Permitting requirements


Fixtures

Plumbing fixtures include bathrooms, tubs, sinks, and other appliances. Of course, when you have a higher number of appliances, the cost will likely rise. Additionally, the more square feet you have, the higher your investment will be. The piping will need to be long enough to cover your entire house.

Piping Type

Similarly, your re-pipe costs will be higher if you use expensive materials like copper piping instead of cheaper but equally durable options like PEX tubing. Rigid piping also routinely costs more to install than flexible PEX because it requires more removal of walls and floors, which increases labor costs.

For example, re-piping the same 1,500 square foot home would cost twice as much using copper pipes as it would if you selected PEX.

Permits

Local permitting requirements and costs can vary widely. Getting the right permits is essential, however.

Fortunately, when you hire plumbing and drain professionals like 1-800 Plumber Columbia to handle your re-piping project, they will take care of all the permitting for you. This ensures that your project is done up to code, on time, and hassle-free.
