Pipes last a long time, but old or worn down pipes can cause a lot of problems for a house. Old pipes are more likely to clog, leak, or even burst, and corroded pipes can displace minerals and other harmful materials into your water supply. Those things are very bad. If you suspect you might need to get your home’s pipes replaced, don’t wait–especially if your home is older and you don’t know how long it’s been since the pipes were replaced.
If your home was built before 1980 there’s a good chance that your pipes are either lead-based or were connected with lead solder. If you’re at all worried your pipes contain lead, there’s a quick way you can check. You can also call us and we’ll be able to tell you what your pipes are made of and how they’re holding up all at once.
Here’s all the info you need to figure out whether or not our partial or complete pipe replacement program is right for you.
When you call Best Home Services, we do a full survey of your plumbing system before making any recommendations. We take only the actions necessary to keep your plumbing functioning at 100%. If we do recommend a total or partial replacement of your pipes, we work with you to determine what form that replacement should take. We consider your home, your budget, your preferences and any other logistical situations before we put together a game plan.
We can use flexible, durable polyethylene piping to cut down on demolition as much as possible. Want to replace your current metal pipes with a safer alternative? We offer high quality copper re-piping, too.
If you feel like you’ve been having a lot of plumbing problems, consider that the problem may not be you. Old pipes could be the root cause of a whole host of issues in your home. All pipes need to be replaced eventually, and doing so could not only be a good idea for you and your family, it could extend the lifespan of your whole home and even raise your property value.
If you’re thinking of pipe replacement for your home, or would like to ask an expert a few questions about your plumbing system, feel free to give us a call today. No two customer’s’ problems, needs and desires are the same, which is why we get to know your plumbing, your house & you before we make a recommendation.
