Copper Repipe

Why would you want to repipe your house with copper pipes? Maybe your home was built with galvanized pipe over 30 years ago and you have low water pressure because of it or maybe you home was piped with soft copper piping buried in the slab and has started to leak. Leaking pipe in a slab can be repaired but it is only a matter of time before another stretch of the same pipe incurs a leak and you need to repair again. A copper repipe is your best solution for this problem so you wont have a recurring problem. If your water has a rusty color or any other discoloring from corroded pipes you would definitely benefit from new copper pipes in your home. Your water will look and taste much cleaner.

Repiping your whole house with new copper piping normally requires a professional. You should seek out a company with a lot of experience with copper repipe, not just any old plumbing company. Copper is an expensive metal, so this project does not come cheap but it should last a lifetime and quality copper piping ads value to your home if you choose to sell your home in the future.  The cost you can expect to pay greatly depends on the amount of copper you need, the smaller the home and least amount of bathrooms and plumbing in general the cheaper the project.
