Over time, your pipes experience extensive usage that can take a toll on their condition. You may find that plumbing problems become increasingly frequent, requiring you to pay more and more money to keep them in proper working order. These costs will continue to rise to a point where it makes more sense to have your home repiped. When this occurs, you can count on the plumbing experts at Inception Plumbing to provide everything you need for reliable drainage that lasts.
What is Repiping?
Repiping is a permanent solution to leaky pipes, discolored water, reduced water flow, and pressure. It differs from patching or replacing pipe segments because it refreshes your entire piping network back to a brand new state. Repiping can take up to a week depending on the size of your home and requires that your water be shut off while the pipes are being replaced. The plumbing contractors at Inception Plumbing will do most of the work while you are out of the home in order to provide minimal disruption to your life.
Types of Repiping
You have many options when it comes to your repiping service, the most important of which is the type of material used in your new pipes. Each type comes with advantages and disadvantages, detailed below.
Copper is the most widely used material for pipes. Strong and resistant to corrosion, copper is the most durable and long-lasting material for your new pipes. Copper is more expensive than other materials, however, and can break due to freezing more readily than other materials.
Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) is also a very popular choice for new pipes, given that it has the ability to withstand extreme temperatures. The low cost of materials makes it a widely used material. However, over time, the pipes can become brittle.
Cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) is the gold standard for whole-home repiping. With durability that rivals copper combined with the low cost of materials, PEX is an affordable way to revitalize your plumbing system. PEX can only be used indoors though, as UV rays will cause the material to degrade.
What Occurs During a Repiping Service?
Repiping begins by shutting off the water to your home. Your plumbing contractor will then identify where the pipes are located behind your drywall. The drywall is removed bit by bit so that each individual section of piping can be removed and replaced by new pipes of your chosen material. Once the new pipes are in place, the drywall is replaced, then patched up and retextured back to how it looked before. In fact, once the repiping service is concluded, you will not even know that anything has been changed, apart from the increase in your drainage, water pressure and pipe performance, of course.

"I tried several companies and Inception was the only one that had a REAL person to answer the telephone. The others had answering machines and not one returned my call. They were prompt and friendly. Discussed the fix and quoted a price. Their employee James was very nice and professional. The problem turned out to be bigger than what we expected, a new price was quoted and the problem was fixed. In the long run they saved me from what could have been a catastrophe. The boss even showed up to help shovel! Thank you, Inception Plumbing."
“I think the 5 star reviews say it all! Inception plumbing is consistently a pleasure to work with. Our company has had the fortune of finding Darrell and his team and they do consistently clean and correct work. Schloegel Design Remodel is fortunate to have found such a great plumbing partner!”

“Very pleased with the prompt response and high level of workmanship I received. Darrell wasted no time fixing my leaky shower and showed me what happened and how to keep it from ever happening again. His clean cut into my ceiling was very smooth and square, and easy to patch after he left. Would recommend Inception to anybody!”
