Renovation From the Inside Out: Repipes in Tigard
At first thought, it doesn’t occur to most people that some of the best money spent on their home, could be spent on redoing their plumbing. We get it – plumbing isn’t as fun as a new kitchen, upgrading the bathroom, or finally installing that movie room you’ve always wanted.
But the benefits are undeniable. Not only will your home minimize its vulnerability to leaks, new pipes are also clean, which means the water you drink and use to shower is free of contaminants that build up in older plumbing.
Not to mention it also gives you the peace of mind that any renovations you do after, won’t be undone by bad plumbing.
Sarkinen Plumbing has over 20 years of providing full-home repipes to homes in and around Tigard. Our expert plumbing contractors have seen it all, and many jobs are far less invasive, time-consuming, and even less expensive than most might think.
Plumbing Gone Bad
For most homeowners, it makes sense to think about repiping their home at the same time as other renovations, but unfortunately, that’s not always how it works. Many homeowners are faced with a replumbing job only after noticing some of the tell-tale signs that their old pipes might be failing:
Discolored or Odorous Water
As one of the more concerning signs, water that’s no longer running clear or is even carrying a new smell, means that the pipes have corroded to the point of affecting water quality.
High Water bills and Low Water Pressure
The two may go hand-in-hand. Where there’s low water pressure, there’s usually a leak hidden somewhere in the line, and if you have a leak – that leads to a higher-than-expected water bill despite “regular” usage.
A significant water leak might be the final straw for most homeowners prior to a repiping. If old pipes have led to a leak, it’s usually only a matter of time before there’s another one at some other point in the system.
If you’ve ruled out hair or other gunk as the reason why your sinks are draining slow, then the culprit could be build up from the plumbing itself. Over time, corrosion and oxidation lead to clogs that slow the flow of water through the system.
Leave Replumbing to The Experts
While wrenching in a new pipe under the kitchen sink might be suitable for some everyday DIY-ists, repiping a home is one of those things that’s better left to the pros.
