The lifespan for the pipes in your house can last between 20-100 years. Factors such as water hardness, installation and maintenance, and pipe materials, will be a huge factor in understanding the timing needed to change your pipes.

Signs You Need to Re-pipe Your Home

How do you know when it's time for re-piping your Shelton house? As a homeowner, what are the early signs that will indicate that you need new pipes?

  • Your home is greater than 60 years old and has the same pipes when it was built
  • Your pipes are visibly staining or cracking
  • Your pipes are dripping fluid

  • Your house's piping is constructed from lead or polybutylene


Aging Piping

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 Shelton 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.

Detailed orientated and honest inspection. Chad took his time and explained everything that was going on very well. The service fee was fair for the small issues he fixed, and he was able to make a referral for water restoration for us, I would use his service again and plan to when our water heater goes out.
