How Much Does Residential Repiping Cost - Plumbing Outfitters

Water pipes are arguably the unsung heroes of your home. You use them for cooking, cleaning, laundry, showering, and other activities that are the hallmark of modern life. But here’s the thing: we don’t often think about the pipes in our homes until we have no choice.

You might see leaks between slabs in the foundation in the basement, drops in your water pressure, cloudy or yellow water, or unexpected temperature surges when you flush. These conditions can suggest widespread problems with your pipes, and might prompt you to consider a residential repiping project.

How much does residential repiping cost, and when do you need to make that investment? Let the experts at Plumbing Outfitters explain.

What’s Involved in Residential Repiping?

The longer you live in your house, the greater the chance you might spot a leak from a pipe someday. You will have to permanently repair or replace that pipe or section of piping to stop the leak.

Let’s say you have repeated leaks over several years. In this instance, you might instead choose residential repiping. This project involves upgrading your entire plumbing system with new pipes from top to bottom.

Reasons for Residential Repiping

In addition to seeing repeated leaks, you may face other conditions suggesting it’s time for a total piping overhaul. For instance, many older homes may still have original piping made from lead. This can create health problems if the lead seeps into the drinking water. You may also need to repipe if your home still has copper or galvanized steel pipes.

An opportune time for repiping is when you are in the midst of an existing remodeling project. Rather than disrupting your home’s structure twice, it makes more sense to take care of as much as possible before restoring order.

How Much Does Repiping Cost?

Every home and every project is a little different because residential repiping has a number of variables to consider. Additional items to factor into the cost of a repiping project are:

  • The home’s square footage.
  • Total number of pipe fixtures and their location.
  • The current cost of materials.
  • Size of a supply and drain line.
  • The extent of an inspection.
  • Labor costs.

Ballpark estimates vary widely, ranging from the low end of $4,000 to $5,000 or up to $15,000 to $20,000 for larger homes with many more fixtures. The costs will also vary depending on location because, in some areas, the cost of supplies will be higher than in others. Plumbing Outfitters can provide a no-obligation estimate.
