The words “sewer repair” may be one of a homeowner’s worst nightmares. Why? Well, most people traditionally associate the term with pipe replacement. A full replacement is a very stressful, destructive process and one that most homeowners’ insurance policies tend to exclude if regular wear and tear cause the damage.
But what if there was a more cost-effective, hassle-free process to fix your pipes’ cracks, leaks or other structural damage? As it turns out, there is: Relining your sewer drain pipes. Not sure what that means? Not to worry we’re here to walk you through what sewer drain pipe relining is, why homeowners choose this method and how exactly the process works.
What is sewer drain pipe relining?
Sewer pipe relining is the process of repairing damaged sewer and drain pipes by creating a “pipe within a pipe” to restore function and flow. Here at Hero Home Services we use epoxy relining materials that mold to the inside of the existing pipe to create a smooth new inner wall.
We perform sewer pipe relining through a home’s clean-out access and the whole process often requires little to no digging. We often use this method to repair root-damaged pipes, seal cracks and holes, fill in missing pipe and seal joint connections underground. The relined pipe is seamless and durable, and all materials used in the relining process are non-hazardous.
The benefits of relining your sewer pipes.
Do your sewer and drain pipes need some TLC? Here are the many reasons why homeowners decide to reline and not replace:
· Affordable costs. Pipe relining is a very cost-effective maintenance option. Compared to a pipe replacement, there is way less labor, fewer materials costs and minimal damage — which means you don’t have to pay for those high repair prices.
· Minimal landscape disruption. Not only is pipe replacement expensive, but it causes major damage to your landscape — including concrete or other pavement, plant cover or other land that may have taken ages to develop. Even more, it may take a long time before the ground fully restores itself. With pipe relining, there’s minimal surface destruction.
· Safer procedure. When plumbing professionals disrupt your ground surface, it can be quite risky. The accompanying holes, trenches or other uncontrolled debris can cause accidents (especially with children or pets). Relining is a much simpler process making it a safer alternative.
· Increased value. Sewer systems are one of the key parts of a home inspection. Relining reinforces your pipes with epoxy resin and eliminates any weak points and joints (making it more efficient) — boosting your home’s value.
· Streamlined process. It takes far less time to reline pipes than it does to dig up and repair an existing system. Not only does this help keep your costs down, but it gets you back to restoring your original landscape much faster.
