Why You Should Repipe Your House
If you have a home over 50 years old with the original plumbing, chances are, those pipes aren’t in the best shape right now thanks to years of sediment buildup, clogs, and weakened joints. If you’ve never considered repiping your home, here are a few benefits to consider:
- Water Pressure Improvement: As pipes get older, they become clogged with sediment, leading to a reduction in water pressure. New pipes fix this problem and restore the water pressure to the levels you like.
- Adds Value: Putting in new pipes adds value to your home and makes for a great selling point if you’re looking to move.
- Prevents Leaks: Depending on the materials used in the original construction, some pipes weaken over time, leading to leaks and water damage. Installing new pipes with leak-proof materials protect your home from water damage and costly repairs for years.
- Better Tasting Water: Some metal pipes rust as they age, and it imparts a metallic taste to the water. Replacing these old pipes with new ones makes your water clear and clean again.

How Long Does Home Repiping Take?
It’s no secret that repiping a home is an involved process, and it’s only natural for the homeowner to want to know how long they’ll have to suffer with the mess and the inconvenience.
While many factors determine how long a home repiping job takes, most are broken down into several phases.
- Phase one is preparing the home, which involves cutting holes in walls to gain access to the pipes. Also during this phase, the contractor removes cabinets and vanities.
- The second phase is removing the drywall so they can replace the pipes. Removing drywall is a messy job, but our experts are clean and promise to leave your home in pristine condition when they’re finished.
- The final phase involves patching drywall and replacing sheetrock where needed once the new pipes are in place. Depending on the size of the home, the average repiping job is completed in as little as two days.
