What Kind of Pipe Are You Choosing?
The kind of pipe you choose makes a significant impact on the cost of your piping project. There are three main types of piping material you can expect to be offered by your installation company. These include:
- PVC/ CPVC
PEX tubing and copper piping are two of the most common materials used in homes. PEX can run a bit less than copper, but the lifespan of copper pipes makes it a bit more effective than other types. In addition to the material type, the pipe’s diameter also makes a difference. The thicker the tube, the more material needs to be purchased, so find the right balance between a sturdy option and one that fits your budget.
How Big Is Your House?
Larger homes will have a much higher installation cost. A home with an attic, two floors, and a basement will need a ton of material to traverse the distance required to reach every appliance on those floors. Smaller, one-story homes won’t need nearly as much pipe to reach major appliances. Bigger homes may also have more products to get to. A basement might include special sinks, tubs, toilets, a bar, showers, large washing machines, and more.
Are Your Pipes Easily Accessible?
Are your pipes easy to reach, or do they require your installers to bend, twist, and shimmy their way into tight corners? We’ve seen some of the smallest homes need expert flexibility to reach some of the pipes built deep in the system. Your technicians might have to break down more walls or remove an awkwardly built piping system to create the perfect new one. So while your home might not be as small as the neighbors, if your pipes are simple and easy to reach, it can remove plenty of time and money from the project.

Do I Need My Home Re-Piped?
Some homeowners may be in the process of repiping, while others might be wondering if it’s time for theirs. Sometimes plumbing problems can result from an acute issue that, once cleared out, can solve problems for good. Other problems can be signs of a more significant issue. The only true way to know if your home needs to be repiped is with a thorough professional evaluation, but you can also take note of some of these signs.
- Frequent Clogging or Leaks
- Low Water Pressure
- Mold in the Area of Your Piping
- Discolored Water
