A Comparison of Piping Materials
At Morris-Jenkins, we know that some of you already know a lot about plumbing. But it might not be your area of expertise. Choosing the right plumbing materials can feel like a big task when you’re getting a lot of plumbing jargon from your plumber. At Morris-Jenkins, we try to make it a little more straightforward so you can make decisions with confidence. Here are some of the most common materials you might have heard about.
Galvanized Steel or Iron
Galvanized steel pipes might be the reason you’re calling us for a whole home repipe in the first place. The outside of these pipes is corrosion resistant thanks to a coating of zinc. But the inside is a different story. When you start seeing orange water coming out of your pipes or your pipes start to leak in more than one place, this is likely galvanized steel piping that needs to be replaced.
CPVC can be used for water up to 180℉. CPVC is a little more affordable than other materials, but it can freeze and burst more easily in extreme temperatures. It’s not very flexible compared to PEX piping.
PEX can be a good material in many situations. It’s flexible, so it can be installed in tricky areas. It can be used for hot and cold water, it’s faster to install, and it can last up to 50 years with correct installation.
Copper is the most pricy, but many people still prefer this material. It can last a long time, it’s strong, and it holds up well underground. It’s also resistant to corrosion, and bacteria has a hard time growing inside of it. As an added bonus, it can be recycled when you’re done with it.
Our Whole Home Repiping Services
You might not know what to expect with our whole home repiping services if you’ve never had to have it done before. That’s okay because our plumbers will always make sure you’re up to speed. Everyone here is trained to not use lots of plumbing lingo and to make sure you’re involved in the process.
First, we’ll walk you through choosing your piping materials. We’ll look at all of the aspects of your situation including your budget and your home’s layout. Then, we’ll be able to give you an estimate and let you know how long the project will take. Usually, whole home repiping takes two or three days.
For most repiping jobs, we’ll need to remove your drywall to access your old pipes. Since the process can be disruptive to your day, we get it done as quickly as possible without cutting any corners. When we’re done, we clean up the mess. We never leave old pipes, dust, or debris in your house.
