Pipe repair and replacement can be expensive and messy, which is why homeowners often choose to delay them. At New England Pipe Restoration, we offer trenchless pipe lining in Boston, MA, a minimally invasive and less costly repair method. Since this is a relatively new pipe repair method, most people have questions concerning this technique. We answer some of the questions we often get from our clients below.
What Does Trenchless Pipe Lining Mean?
Trenchless pipe lining, also called CIPP pipe lining, is a process that involves clearing out your sewer line and inserting an epoxy lining into the damaged pipe, sealing all the cracks and leaks and preventing tree roots from penetrating your pipes. This process involves little to no digging, meaning it doesn’t damage your landscaping, yard, and sidewalk.
How Does Trenchless Pipe Lining Work?
Our technicians start the process with a visual inspection to identify any problems using a high-resolution camera. Once we ascertain that your sewer system is a good candidate for cast iron pipe lining, we insert the epoxy-filled liner into the damaged pipe, which hardens to form a new pipe inside the old pipe.
Is Trenchless Pipe Lining Expensive?
The cost of trenchless sewer pipe lining varies across areas. Besides that, other factors, including the length of the pipe, the severity of the damage, and accessibility, affect the cost. Considering that it does not involve digging up into the ground and walls and saves the cost of yard restoration, trenchless pipe lining is more affordable than conventional methods.
How Long Does Pipe Lining Take?
Expert pipe lining companies, like New England Pipe Restoration, take a single day to complete the repairs because they work with a team of 3-4 technicians. Nonetheless, a day of preparation is required before starting the repairs. Also, a day of post-work inspection is needed for local authorities to come in and assess the work to determine if it meets the municipal requirements.
