Residential Piping and Repiping
If you’re not sure whether you need a repair or a replacement, consider the age of your current plumbing system.
The average lifespan of common piping materials:
- CPVC: usually between 20–25 years
- Copper: up to 50 years
- Galvanized iron: usually between 50–65 years
- Galvanized steel: usually between 40–50 years
- Brass: up to 40 years
Aging pipes also begin to corrode, which can create flakes of rust that get into your water. We can help you make the decision regarding what is safest for your home and family.

Even the tiniest hairline crack can lead to big problems if it’s left unnoticed for too long. It could burst, or slowly leak water behind your walls and lead to mold growth.
If you’re dealing with a leak, a burst, or a clog in your pipe, don’t hesitate to reach out for a rapid response that gets your home back to normal ASAP.
Causes of Pipe Damage
From foundational shifts to tree roots and temperature changes, there are many ways that pipes can encounter damage. But there are clear warning signs to watch for that mean your home is telling you it’s time to call in the professionals.
Common signs that your pipes may need to be replaced:
- Low Water Pressure. Oftentimes, metal pipe material will develop mineral deposits that can block the passageway of water.
- Water Leaks. As your home’s pipes begin to age, weak points in the material can cause leaks to become more and more frequent. Often, this results in mold or water damage.
- Brown Water. Rust or corrosion can develop inside your home’s pipes, producing rust-colored or brown water. The rust can travel through the pipes into the faucets and other fixtures.
Benefits of Replacing Your Pipes
In a lot of cases, homeowners are better off in the long run by replacing their pipes rather than trying to fix them. This is because as the pipes continue to age, they’ll encounter more issues. Investing into upgraded pipes before draining your savings on repeat repairs will save you some hard-earned money.
