How Bannister Plumbing & Air Can Get Your Pipes Back in Top Order.

You may be surprised to learn that pipes don't last forever - at least not in good condition. Typically, pipes last about 50 years. If your property was built in the 1970s or earlier, you may want to consider a process called repiping.

As the name suggests, renovation involves replacing the pipes in your home when they are too old to function properly. There are some other situations that require further review, which we will discuss below. Read on to learn more about our plumber!

If you think your home, commercial property or residential property could benefit from a plumbing pipe replacement, contact Bannister Plumbing & Air for new plumbing services in Jacksonville and beyond.

What Is Repiping?

The remodeling process involves replacing some or all of the pipes in your home or commercial property. The first step in any repair is an inspection to determine whether partial or complete replacement is required. Your plumber will then find the pipes, drill holes in the floors and drywall to access the pipes, and replace them one at a time. Once the renovation is complete, your contractor will inspect and repair any leaks before sealing the pipes with drywall cement or soil. Renovating an entire property will likely require replacing sewer pipes and water supply lines.

Signs Your House Needs a Pipe Replacement:

  • Pipes often leak. Obviously, your pipes will give way if they are not doing their job properly. It's probably time to redo the work!
  • They have galvanized pipes. Many older homes in the Houston area were built with galvanized pipes, which often leads to problems with corrosion and rust formation over time. These problems lead to poor water pressure and quality.
  • They have lead pipes. Yes, lead pipes can cause serious health problems, including kidney and cardiovascular problems. You should replace lead pipes as soon as you discover they are present in your home.
  • It's been over 50 years. Some pipes, such as copper pipes, can last up to 80 years. However, some older homes were built with pipes made of polybutylene, a thin material. It may be best to replace the pipes before the problems arise.

What Are the Benefits of Repiping Your House?

  • Better overall operation: Your pipes should deliver clean water efficiently and with good water pressure. Renovating with a modern material will prevent leaks and corrosion, helping your pipes perform better with little risk of health problems.
  • Reduced Water Bills: With improved water efficiency and fewer leaks, you are sure to see a positive change in your water bills. It's also great for environmental sustainability.
  • Increased Property Value: When you sell your home, potential buyers are more likely to pay full price for a home with brand new plumbing. After all, no one wants to worry about the condition or function of the plumbing in their home.
  • Better Drinking Water: The quality of your drinking water will improve when you replace lead or galvanized steel pipes.
