When Should You Repipe Your House?
Repiping a house is something many homeowners never need to think about. Pipes are meant to last several decades before they begin to degrade. The most obvious signs that you might need whole-house repiping services are red or brown colored water, pipe leaks in multiple locations, or low water pressure.
The age of the property is also a good indicator of whether you’ll need repiping. In general, if your home is 50 years old or older, it’s best to have your plumbing assessed at the least. Our licensed and insured plumbers have over a decade of experience and will work with you to determine whether repiping is necessary.
Types of Repiping Materials
There are several different types of piping available, and each has its benefits and downsides. Here’s a brief overview of the most popular options.
Copper Pipe – Durable, able to withstand high heat but can corrode over time and is very expensive.
PVC Pipe – Easier to work with than metal and relatively inexpensive, but must be glued together, and they can be prone to joint leaks.
PEX – Very flexible and affordable, but relatively new and untested long term.
Our team is happy to go over your plumbing type options with you to ensure you understand the benefits and drawbacks in regard to your specific situation.

How Whole-Home Repiping Works
As mentioned above, whole-house repiping can be quite involved depending on the size of your home, but this is the general process:
- Turning off the water
- Covering furniture so that it’s protected from any debris
- Making small cuts into the drywall to get at the pipes
- Systematically removing and replacing the old piping with the new
- Sealing up the hole so that the new pipes aren’t exposed
We offer expert repiping services at affordable rates with upfront pricing and no surprise fees.
