How Affordable Is Pipe Relining?
Pipe relining is a simple, fast and more affordable way to repair sewers and drains when compared with traditional repair practices. It’s been a proven effective method for more than 25 years around the world and for more than a decade in Australia. Digging up pipes for repair can cost almost $20000 dollars and take up to three weeks. So how affordable is the trenchless repair service of pipe relining?
Relining vs Digging
In the past, the only way to fix drains was to dig them up and replace the damaged sections. But this creates mess and disruption to your home or business. Not to mention the cost of restoring the property and landscaping to its original condition. The most expensive components of traditional, dig-and-replace pipe repair aren’t the materials or tools used, but rather the hard labour, displacement of earth, and long hours spent restoring the damaged pipe. Extraneous costs, like these, are why traditional pipe repair typically costs 25-30% more than pipe relining, which comes with a number of cost benefits making it the more affordable option.
What Makes Pipe Relining Affordable?
Pipe relining has several cost benefits to it, which make it a far more affordable option. These include the following:
Drain relining is a cost-effective option because the process involves less plumbing labour since the piping system doesn’t have to be extracted from the ground. You won’t need to spend as much on new materials to replace those materials damaged during excavation. Upheavals in areas that had previously been developed can be a costly undertaking. Restoration of the disrupted natural cover also adds to overall costs. Given the time that it takes for vegetation to mature, you’re better off if you reline damaged pipes in the home rather than excavate.
The addition of the thick, resin textile liner pipe into the old damaged pipe reinforces the piping system because you end up with two pipes in one unit. It also eliminates the weak points and joints in the piping system. This gives the piping system a higher efficacy. With a 50-year guarantee on the system as well, you can rest assured that your pipes will last.
Adds Value to Your Home
The drainage system is one of the key points of focus during home inspections. A well-designed system assures high efficiency in drainage service. Relining reinforces the existing system, which enhances drainage efficacy, boosting home value.
Far less time is required to reline pipes than would be the case if you were to dig up and repair them using the traditional method. Relining also enables you to rehabilitate pipes in difficult-to-reach areas much faster than before. This quick turnaround time helps to keep installation costs down and helps to restore your environment to its original shape much faster and with far less mess.
