We Provide Cast Iron Pipe Replacement in Garland, TX

Cast iron pipes were once considered a highly innovative piping method – back in the 17th century. Today, it's not unusual to find worn or severely damaged cast iron pipes in older homes. Given how difficult it can be to repair these pipes, we recommend contacting In-House Plumbing Company to explore your options with cast iron pipe replacement in Garland, TX.

It's much easier and cost-effective to replace damaged and leaking cast iron pipes rather than repairing them. This is especially true with cast iron pipes located under slab foundations. It's ultimately beneficial for our team and, more importantly, customers like you.

The Importance of Professional Pipe Replacement

Cast iron pipes have the potential to last for 30 to 50 years or more, which is why they're often still in place in many older homes. Cast iron sewer replacement is important because once these pipes fail, there's the possibility of related damage to your foundation and landscape. Your household drains and fixtures could be affected as well.

The Top Benefits

Cast iron pipes are typically replaced with newer PVC ones. This is a material that's much lighter and easier to work with should you need a plumber in Garland, TX, to repair them in the future. New pipes are also more flexible and resistant to leaks, cracks, ground-shifting, corrosion, and other problems that can affect older cast iron pipes.

Signs You Should Replace Cast Iron Pipes

Problems with cast iron pipes often start small, which is why you do not realize anything needs attention right away. For instance, tree roots can get in through a small crack and gradually damage the pipe enough to cause a blockage or collapse.

  • Toilets, sinks, and other household drains that are draining slowly

  • Foundation damage

The Pipe Replacement Process

As every home is different, we offer pipe replacement options specific to each situation. That said, the replacement process typically involves an onsite visit to take measurements to determine what it will take to replace the cast iron so we can provide an estimate. Sometimes a camera inspection is necessary to determine the nature, location, and extent of the damage. Traditional digging and pipe rerouting are among the methods that our plumbing company may use to replace residential cast iron pipes.
