What Does It Mean To Repipe Your House?
Repiping is the process of replacing the pipes inside of your home. Usually, repiping is necessary due to problems caused by aging or deteriorating pipes. Older homes with galvanized steel pipes will eventually need to be repiped. Homes built between 1978 and 1995 may also need to be repiped prematurely due to the widespread use of polybutylene pipes which have since been found to become brittle and crack faster than expected.
How much Does It Cost To Repipe Your House?
The average whole house repipe cost between $3000 to $8000 using PEX material. The price varies depending on the size and layout of your home, which will affect the labor and material cost. To schedule a free repipe estimate call Pro-Tech at (407) 291-1644.
When Should you Repipe A House?
If you have an older home and you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may need to repipe your home:
- Loss In Water Pressure Over Time - This is caused by mineral buildup within your pipes over time. Gradually, the buildup restricts the flow of water.
- Frequent Pipe Repairs - Older homes used galvanized steel and copper pipes. Over time these materials can breakdown and lead to frequent leaks or breaks.
- Polybutylene Pipes In Your Home - Polybutylene pipes were used extensively from 1978 to 1995. However, over time it became apparent that polybutylene pipes became brittle. If your home has polybutylene pipes, it is at a much higher risk of having water damage due to broken pipes.
- Discolored Water - Rust can buildup in older galvanized pipes and get into your water supply, causing a reddish color in your water.
Other times when it may be necessary to repipe your home is when preparing your home to be sold or when purchasing a home with polybutylene pipes.
How Long Does It Take To Repipe Your House?
The average repipe can take between 2-3 days. Larger homes with more square footage or additional bathrooms will take additional time.
Does Insurance cover repiping?
In most cases, no, your insurance company will not cover the cost of repiping your entire home because it is considered preventative maintenance. However, you should consult your individual homeowner's policy to get the answer.
