High Quality Re-Piping Services
As obvious a statement as this might be, all indoor plumbing is delivered through a network or pipes. In the older days, even up to the seventies, pipes were made of galvanized steel. Galvanized steel was basic heavy steel that was treated to try and prevent rusting and accelerated erosion but even the most advanced methods were not impervious to erosion. Modern pipes are made of more advanced elements including copper and other non-rusting elements or materials and so it is highly beneficial to re-pipe if an older home is purchased.
Other instances that can cause major cause for concern are freezing weather. If water is pressurized and freezes, major bursts can quickly happen in the pipes which then causes flooding when the water thaws out. Even in desert states such as Arizona, many places can experience extended cold weather potentially causing numerous issues with weakened or burst pipes.
If pipes are suspected to be weakened, there are several reasons to re-pipe them including:
- Extremely high potential damage caused by a unexpected burst and resulting flooding.
- Added peace of mind on vacation or other instances when distractions are not welcomed or are able to be taken care of quickly. Having the pipe burst while out of town or on a long work day could cause major issues.
- If the pipes are still galvanized, they are a ticking time bomb and will eventually fail, having them replaced as soon as possible will ensure they do not cause chronic issues.
Although there are many more reasons for re-piping a home, the basic answer that continues to come to the forefront is that a reasonable expense up front will prevent major costs and lost assets in the future.
