Pipe Repair Services
- Leaking Pipes
A leaking pipe can result in an outrageous water bill, but it can also cause extensive damage to walls, ceiling and the floors in your home. A pipe leak should always be located and repaired as quickly as possible to minimize the expense.
- Clogged Pipes
Pipe obstructions can be caused by many things, including grease, hair, hygiene products, and much more. When a pipe is restricted, used or “gray” water backs up into the toilet, sink, or tub. If the clog isn’t cleared, the fixture can overflow or break down.
- Burst Pipes
A burst pipe presents a real hazard since a large amount of water may discharge quickly into your home or property. A broken water pipe can cause a great deal of damage and create a huge mess. If one of your pipes suddenly bursts, call us 24/7 for emergency service.
Common Causes Of Pipe Damage
The pipes in your home are essential for a properly functioning plumbing system, so it is important to make sure they stay in good condition.
Common causes of damage to pipes include:
- Rust and corrosion from age and wear.
- Clogs due to debris buildup.
- Freezing temperatures can cause pipes to burst.
- High water pressure can cause increased wear on the pipes leading to cracks and breaks over time.
- Poor installation may lead to weak joints which will cause water leakage, blockages in your drain lines, and other serious problems.
If any issues arise, seeking professional help is always recommended as soon as possible to ensure that the issue is handled effectively and efficiently before it results in serious pipe damage.

Repairing copper pipe is not particularly difficult, but locating the problem and accessing the broken section can be challenging. We can replace damaged or failed pipe with fresh copper or a composite alternative.
From the 1970s through the early 1990s, polybutylene was used extensively in residential plumbing. This gray plastic material is prone to leaking and cracking after only a few years of use. Since it deteriorates from the inside out, visual inspections don’t help in determining if the material is failing. Our trained plumbing technicians have the tools to evaluate the condition of your polybutylene pipes and replace them if necessary.
PVC has been an industry standard for many years; it’s inexpensive and lasts a long time. However, repairing PVC requires the skill of a professional plumber who knows how to sand, prime, and glue PVC joints so they’ll withstand the punishment of time and weather.
