It's not uncommon for some older homes to still have the original pipes used during construction. Often, the material used in these pipes is now either corroded, leaking, or partially blocked. A burst pipe can lead to thousands of dollars in damage, and leaks cost money in wasted water each month.
To protect your home and add value, a whole house repipe is recommended. Contact us today to find out more information!

As a Yorkton homeowner, if you suffer from frequent leaks, noisy pipes, or foul-tasting, discolored water, it could be your old pipes that are to blame. Here are a few reasons to think about hiring a repipe contractor.
- Corrosion: Pipes corrode for various reasons, including age and the materials used during construction. Replacing your old pipes with new materials protects you against bursts and leaks.
- Resolves Pipe Issues: If you have a reduction in water pressure, or the water pressure varies, your old, clogged pipes could be the culprit. Repiping the house restores your water pressure throughout the house.
- Adds Value: Repiping your home adds value, which makes it more attractive to potential buyers.

How Long Do Repipe Projects Take?
Not long ago, repiping a home was a long, expensive process; however, thanks to modern technology, repiping costs a fraction of what it did back in the day.
The time it takes to repipe a home varies depending on factors such as your home's size, the number of lines that need replacing, and the types of materials already installed.
The average repiping project is completed in three to seven days, while some smaller homes are completed in as little as two. Also, depending on the materials used, the new pipes can last 80 years and beyond. If you're not sure repiping your home is right for you, call us for inspection.

How Repiping Works?
Repiping a home is a process that can take anywhere from a few days to a week, depending on how big the house is and how much pipe requires replacing. A typical repiping job requires breaking up concrete and walls to replace water and drain lines. In some instances, the sewer line must also be replaced, which adds to the time it takes to complete the job.
Also, water must be shut off during the repiping process, which is an inconvenience.
