Prevention, prevention, prevention! The stuff happening behind the walls of your home can easily go unnoticed and eventually get out of control. Old pipes start to cause problems, and they pose a threat that could cause serious damage. Sometimes the best solution to the problem is to repipe your home.
Why repipe? If your home is 20-50 years old, you most likely need some plumbing work done. Over time, pipes will corrode, causing low water pressure. Other signs include dripping faucets, pinhole leaks, rusty or yellow water, and getting scalded in the shower when someone flushes the toilet.
It may sound overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. There will likely be some small sections of drywall that need to be torn out, but otherwise repiping can be a straightforward process. If you’re starting to see warning signs, get ahead of the problem. You will thank yourself later because bad plumbing could end up costing you much more, and the damage it does could extend to other areas of your home.
At Mathes & Son Plumbing, we take pleasure in making the process to repipe your home painless. The cost is often much less than you think. And if you plan on selling your home, having new pipes all throughout is a great selling point.
So, if you are seeing signs or are unsure about the state of your pipes, it’s better to be safe now so that you aren’t sorry later.
