Pipe Lining Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does pipe restoration save a property owner's money?
A: Yes! Since pipe restoration restores a building's plumbing system under flooring and within walls, owner's save thousands of dollars by not paying to replace their existing plumbing system. The costs saved by not destroying walls and floors, removing and replacing pipes, and redecorating make pipe restoration the less expensive alternative.

Q: What are the benefits of re-lining compared to replacing?
A: Consider the additional costs of replacing:
  • concrete excavation
  • damage to sidewalks, driveways, landscaping
  • significant reconstruction costs following ripping and replacing the old pipe
  • time commitment for the excavation project
