Homes in the Haverhill area are as historic as the city itself. Many have been around for 100 years or more and may be suffering from aging pipes. There are a few signs that can let you know replacement is coming soon.
Your exposed pipes may be discolored or stained, dimpled or flaking. These are all tell-tale signs that your pipes are corroding and could be prone to leaks. If your home is over 60 years old, you should annually be checking for corrosion and minor leaks. You may also begin to see discoloration in your water which can indicate rusting on the interior of the pipes. While some of these could be minor, repairable issues, they most likely indicate that a full replacement will be necessary soon.
As your Haverhill, MA plumber, we handle replacements with two types of pipes: copper and PVC. Copper has a longer lifespan, between 75-100 years, but is pricier. PVC may only last between 25-40 years, but it is a much more affordable option. If you know that replacement is coming, there are some options that can help you to make it a more affordable process.
Replace just exposed pipes – If accessing the pipes inside your walls is difficult, you can at least replace the exposed pipes without as much disruption. It is still a big job, but there is typically no demolition involved or any need for repairing drywall. This will not eliminate risks of leaking or bursting pipes within your walls, but it is a step in the right direction.
Replace during remodeling – If you are already planning on remodeling areas of your home, adding pipe replacement to the project can save you a lot of money. Chances are the pipes may already be exposed which gives your Haverhill, MA plumber easy access for replacement. Because we are also a licensed contractor, we can perform your remodeling project and plumbing work all at once.
