PEX piping inside a home

Your Home Repiping Pros 
1-800-Plumber +Air of Richmond

Regular maintenance is just a part of homeownership, as things wear out and need to be replaced. Your pipes are no exception, and over time, you may find yourself in need of repipe services. But what is repiping? and how do you know when it's necessary? Let's look at the signs that your pipes are worn out and how an experienced contractor at 1-800-Plumber +Air of Richmond can help.

Common Signs You Need Repiping Services

Although you can't see inside your pipes, they'll give you plenty of hints that they need to be replaced—if you know what to look for. Some common signs you need to replace the pipes include:

  • An old plumbing system: If your pipes are 50+ years old, they probably need to be replaced.

  • Low water pressure: This can be caused by scale build-up inside your pipes.

  • Leaky pipes: One leak may not be a problem to patch up, but if you're consistently getting new leaks, it may be a sign that your pipes are deteriorating.

  • Inconsistent water temperatures: If the water suddenly gets very hot or cold, your pipes may be corroded.

  • Discolored water: If the water isn't clear, there's probably rust inside the pipes.

  • The water tastes or smells "off": If the water tastes metallic or has an unpleasant smell, it may be a sign that your pipes need to be replaced.

  • Signs of corrosion: Rust, discoloration, or flaking on pipes under the sink are sure signs that they're deteriorating.

  • Outdated pipes: If your plumbing system still has lead or polybutylene pipes, you need to have them replaced immediately. They're not safe for your family.

When is a Pipe Replacement Necessary?

Most people don't think about their plumbing until something goes wrong. Your pipes are especially easy to ignore since they're hidden behind walls and under the floor. Although new pipes can last for decades, older systems can deteriorate and lead to all kinds of issues, including leaks, water damage, clogs, and slow drainage. These issues certainly cause expensive repairs, but they also affect the value of your home.

An experienced plumber can help you determine whether it's necessary to repipe your home. If your house is old and the plumbing system hasn't been replaced, it's probably worth it to invest in pipe replacement. Most often, this outweighs the cost of continuous repairs, and it dramatically increases the value of your home.

Benefits of Repiping Your House

Repiping your house may feel like a big undertaking, but it offers so many advantages for your health and budget. Some of the biggest benefits of repiping include:

  • New corrosion-resistant pipes: PEX pipes are a new alternative to older plumbing systems that are resistant to scale build-up, making them last longer.

  • Fewer Leaks: Today's pipes are made with fewer fittings and leak far less than older pipes.

  • More affordable plumbing: PEX pipes are used in modern plumbing systems. They're much less expensive than copper pipes, making installation and repairs more budget-friendly.

  • Fewer service calls: New pipes are more reliable, less prone to problems, and will last for decades without needing a lot of maintenance.

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+ Air of Richmond 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.

Justin and Richard did a great job.

Satisfied Customer

Fine young man and as far as I am concerned he can be his permanent tech. He was very polite and he was very pleased with him and will be calling us again to work with Manolo. Manolo needs a pat on the back and he did a good job.

Satisfied Customer

This was THE most painless repair experience! We had a leak in a pipe behind our water heater, spewing water out into space, ugh. Joe and his apprentice, Dan, were here in about an hour or so. They were both so very friendly from the moment they showed up at the front door! After they determined the problem, we discussed the needed repair, and then they began to replace the pipe(s) behind the water heater. This was pretty much an all-day job and I can honestly say it was no problem having them in my home. They were not only professional and courteous employees; they were two very kind individuals, who were also comfortable and friendly around my crazy dogs! I have had nothing but the finest experiences with this company and cannot recommend them highly enough! They are the best!

Chad was very informative and professional. He and his co-worker are a very rare breed in that they fully prepared to go to work and get the job done right then. I would definitely recommend and use again Chad an 1-800-plumber.

This was my first time with 1-800-Plumber Air of Pearland. I called with a minor issue with the dishwasher drain hose and asked that a tech be dispatched on Saturday so that I could be home from work. Chad was scheduled between 8am & 10am today (Sat) and arrived just before 9am. Chad was very knowledgeable and explained to me the entire process. He also answered my many many questions about what he was doing as he was doing it. I'm a smart guy but know very little about plumbing. I felt very comfortable with Chad doing the repair. The long and the short of it, 1-800-Plumber Air of Pearland has a new longtime customer and I will request that Chad be sent if possible the next time I have a plumbing issue.
