When many homeowners start considering their next home renovation project, repiping the entire house is rarely at the top of the list. Tasks like adding a room or increasing the functionality of the space often sound much more appealing. After all, who wants to sink money into a remodel project that no one will ever see? Pipes hidden inside of walls are far from exciting. But the thought of never worrying about another water leak ought to get you pretty excited. Below are just a few of the great reasons to invest in a whole-home repiping project this year.
Upgrades Are Always Smart
Upgrading your home is always a smart investment. First, you get to enjoy the added benefits and features. And second, when you are smart about the projects you select and the money you invest in upgrades, you can earn a hefty return on your investment. In the case of a home repiping project, you can expect an ROI of over 200%. Homebuyers love to purchase an older home with character that also offers new pipes and no headaches with leaks in the near future. In addition, there are no concerns about old water lines contaminating drinking water or clogging fixtures with rust and mineral particles.
Eliminate Your Worries
Old water lines are never very dependable. But the problem is that when old pipes begin to deteriorate, you never know when or where they will leak. It could take you days or weeks to discover a new leak. And in that time, the water has been soaking into the walls, floors, or ceilings of your home. Not only will you need to deal with the leak repair and water damage costs, but there could also be toxic black mold growth. Repiping your home takes all of these concerns off your plate for the next five decades or so.
Is Your Water An Odd Color?
Have you noticed that your water has a slightly yellow or tan color to it? If so, you are sure to be wondering if the water is safe to drink. In most cases, that tinge of color is due to the rust and corrosion inside old water lines. The water flowing through the pipes is wearing away the pipe wall. And you see tiny bits of pipe and rust in your water. An in-home water test will reveal what is contaminating your water and let you know if it is still safe to consume. Repiping will eliminate any concerns related to pipe decay and contamination.
Does Your Water Taste Bad?
Many of the same issues that cause your water to turn color are also responsible for its nasty taste. Water that contains rust, mineral build-up, or other contamination does not taste refreshing. And in some cases, it is even potentially harmful. Have your water tested to know exactly how pure it is. Issues related to old piping can be corrected by repiping your home.
Poor Water Pressure
As your home’s water pipes age, they become clogged with rust and mineral build-up. Over time, that material begins to restrict the flow of water through the pipes. That is when you notice a drop in your home’s water pressure. Unfortunately, there is no way to remove all of the build-up and rust cost-effectively. You will be amazed at how much of your home’s water pressure is restored when you complete the repiping project.
