Replacing sewer pipes often means digging up your beautiful yard and then having it filled back in. Once you tear your yard apart, it never looks the same again. You might’ve filled in everything to attempt to get it back to normal, but you will notice. It won’t be the same.
The old “dig up and replace” method of sewer repair worked fine for the time, but now if people can have their sewer lines worked on and maintain the quality of their property, why not do that?
Trenchless sewer replacement is a great way to fix many of your plumbing issues without destroying your property. Pipe bursting can be a stressful situation for any homeowner, but having the peace of mind to know that trenchless sewer replacement is a viable option, can ease your property pains.
Trenchless sewer replacement technology became available for residential homes about 15 years ago, but sadly, many homeowners remain unaware that this no-dig technology exists. According to a poll by Angie’s List, about 78% of people have never heard of trenchless repair. According to that same Angie’s List poll, about 73% of people agree that they would be fine with spending more money on sewer repair if they can preserve their property.
Despite trenchless drain repair costing up to 30 to 50% more than conventional repair methods, it can end up being much more cost effective in the long run because you won’t need to spend an extreme amount of money restoring your property.
It’s important to know when to have your pipes inspected. Being proactive about pipe maintenance can help avoid physical and financial issues in the future. Working with professionals who are knowledgeable on sewer repair is extremely important during your property maintenance process. If pipes are more than 40 years old, there is a very good chance they will need to be replaced. They still should be inspected much more frequently, however.
Being able to address serious landscaping issues like problems with your sewer system while still preserving the look and structure of your property is a wonderful thing. The trenchless sewer repair industry is making that happen.
