In September 2021, home prices in Southern California hit an all-time high. If you have been thinking of moving, you may find new homes out of your budget. Some people in this position consider updating their current homes to make them more comfortable and to boost sales prices when it comes time to move. Repiping can replace worn, leaking pipes in your home with new PEX pipe that can last up to 25 years for a long-term investment in preserving the internal structure of your home.
What Is Repiping?
Repiping is the process that replaces some or all your home’s existing pipes. While older methods of repiping required the removal of several walls, today, flexible cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) pipe makes the process easier and less invasive to your home. This type of pipe is so popular for plumbers that 99% of new construction projects use PEX.
Should You Consider Repiping Your Home?
If you live in an older home, you may already have signs of plumbing problems. For instance, homes in areas with hard water may have multiple pinhole leaks in pipes, which can cost you a significant amount of money in wasted water and damage to your home annually. Some very old homes may even still have potentially dangerous lead pipes inside.
If you’re not sure whether you need repiping, consider how many leaks you have to have repaired. If you need more than one or two leaks a year fixed, you may want to upgrade your plumbing.
Advantages of Repiping with PEX
PEX piping is a flexible pipe that comes with a 25-year warranty. Since it is flexible, it is easier for plumbers to install through the walls since it maneuvers easily with less cutting. Easier installation means a faster, less messy process that does not disrupt your home as much as replacing your plumbing with copper or other solid pipes.
