Repiping Verses Piping Restoration
Disadvantages Of Repiping
To repipe an entire building or your home, it will be very expensive (around $10,000 for just a 2 bedroom 2 bath place). Depending on where you live and the size of your home or building, it could be more costly than that. As if the price tag is not bad enough, the chaos endured as a result of plumbers tearing down the walls to replace old piping systems is quite hair raising. The construction necessary to repipe the building could take months. Then you have to contend with the mess of reconstruction, its cost, and cleanup.
Piping Restoration Advantages
The other option is very noninvasive and about 50% less in cost and time to do than that of repiping. It is called piping restoration, or pipe relining. This process involves coating Epoxy lining to the interiors of pipes to prevent corrosion or leaks in the line. It is a long term pipe restoration process that occur external to the building with minimal downtime. These coatings have shown longevity up to 25 years within the US water system. There is no damage to building surfaces, landscape or hardscape. It serves as a safe, preventative method in maintaining healthy commercial and residential piping systems. This is an excellent solution in old piping restoration for municipalities, government, and commercial buildings.
