PEX Re-Piping

Pipe failure can cause damage to floors, walls, and even foundations.

Replacing the piping may seem like a big task - but if they fail, you will need to replace them anyway and on top of that you will have to replace anything that suffered water damage. When you find you need to upgrade or replace your home’s piping, PEX is a great choice.

Signs Your Pipes Need to be Updated

  • Noise when you turn on your faucet
  • Low water pressure
  • Wet spots under sinks or enclosed spaces
  • Brown or discolored water
  • Bad smell from faucets not used frequently

What is PEX?

Cross-linked polyethylene, nicknamed "PEX," has become the new standard when lining the interior walls of your home with fresh water lines. When a home needs to have water lines replaced because their old lines have corroded and slowly rusted away, PEX piping and copper are the two most popular materials used today to re-pipe your home.

PEX, or cross-linked polyethylene, has been used for decades but is new to homeowners in the United States. Developed in Europe, the piping was first used in the United States in 1984, and to this day it holds its ranking as the preferred material used to run portable water lines.

A corrosion-free pipe, which offers better-tasting water when compared to the metallic taste that comes along with copper water lines, PEX has the ability to expand and maintain a healthy lining when faced with freezing temperatures. Having durable water lines that will last longer than 30 years can be achieved with the installation of cross-linked polyethylene material used for re-piping projects.
