Pipes — they’re one of the most important aspects of your home and you probably never give them a second thought. That is, until something goes wrong.
While every homeowner knows they’ll have to deal with clogs and leaks at some point in their life, few realize that they may have to one day fully replace all of their pipes. And while that can seem pretty daunting, the experts at Mr. Rooter Plumbing are here to help you through the process.
Replacing Your Home’s Pipes
1. Contact a pro to learn how big the problem is.
A tell-tale sign that your home needs to be repiped is that you experience plumbing issues in multiple parts of your home. If you have a major plumbing issue on your hands, your first step should be contacting a professional plumber so that they can determine how large the scope of the problem is and how to best repair it.
2. Know what you can and can’t do.
The benefit of going with a locally owned plumbing company, such as Mr. Rooter Plumbing, is that we’re well-versed in California and San Francisco codes related to plumbing. However, you should have a general understanding of what can and can't be installed inside a home or private residence.
3. Create a budget.
Sure, picking out pipes isn’t as exciting as deciding on paint color and bedding, it’s something every home needs and shouldn’t be brushed off. Ultimately, good plumbing is an investment in you and your home’s future.
4. Only trust a plumber who is licensed and insured.
Replacing your plumbing is not as simple as fixing a leak, so it’s best to leave it to the professionals. Being licensed and insured is just a tangible sign of the skill and insight we bring to our trade. We strive to give our customers peace of mind by sending the best qualified plumbers to the job with all the necessary licenses and insurance coverage!
