Leaky roofs are one of the biggest complications of homeownership. If a leak occurs in your roof, you may not think of your home’s plumbing system as the culprit, but it may be the root cause.
That’s because all the plumbing for your entire home is connected like a circulatory system. This interconnectedness makes plumbing repairs much more difficult and expensive if a leak occurs in the roof. But at New England Pipe Restoration, we can complete the repair project quickly, with minimal disruption and at a lower cost.
A Closer Look at Your Home’s Drainage System
The sanitary drainage system in your home consists of three key components – vertical stacks, branch lines and horizontal underground lines. Let’s break down how these components work together to manage the wastewater coming out of your household.
When you think about plumbing, your mental image is probably just of the pipes that run underground. But one of the most important parts of a building’s pipe network is the vertical stack. This is a line of pipe that extends from the horizontal building drain under the slab or in the basement up through the roof of the building.
Like branches of a tree, branch lines split off from vertical stacks. They connect sinks, toilets, showers, clothes washing machines and dishwashers to the corresponding vertical stack, which carries waste to the building’s underground drain.
Horizontal Underground Lines
Horizontal lines are located under the building’s foundation, and are angled slightly downward to carry waste away from the building into the city sewer.
Trenchless Drain Lining Is Quick and At a Better Price
What happens if any part of your intricate plumbing system fails? If your roof is leaking, it’s essential to address the problem as soon as possible. In the worst-case scenario, water can begin leaking down from the roof into the walls, causing both damage to the building’s infrastructure and health hazards as a result of mold buildup.
After our quick overview of how your building’s plumbing works, you may begin to have a better idea how complicated and costly the repair process can become. Traditional pipe replacement requires tearing out walls, digging up floors and inconveniencing residents.
In addition to the mess and hassle it creates, the repair process is both extensive and expensive. According to roofingcalc.com, most homeowners should be prepared to spend between $300 and $1,100 for a roof repair, or an average of $650 per repair call.
Choose the Best Cost-Saving Option
At New England Pipe Restoration, we offer a trenchless plumbing solution for repairing both roof drains and the pipes inside your walls.
Trenchless technology allows us to make repairs with minimal digging and disruption. The key to this technique is a liquid epoxy resin that lines the damaged pipe. When dried, the resin hardens into a new pipe that is durable, joint-free, and resistant to corrosion and rust.
- Repairs do not require tearing out walls or floors
- Residents can stay in their homes while repair work is taking place
- Work can be completed at far less cost and in a fraction of the time of traditional sewer repairs
