Repiping in Houston: What You Need To Know & Ask


Understanding PEX Plumbing and Repiping: Your Questions Answered

Curious about PEX plumbing and repiping? Let's break it down in simple terms. PEX, or cross-linked polyethylene tubing, is a flexible and durable plastic piping used for water distribution. This innovative material has been proven effective for over 20 years, offering a clean, non-toxic, and long-lasting solution that resists corrosion and freeze damage. During our visit, we'll even show you a sample of the PEX products we use.

Warranty for Peace of Mind

Absolutely! Our repiping services come with an impressive warranty. Our 5-year fully-transferable labor warranty ensures your peace of mind. Not to mention, Uponor provides a 25-year limited warranty for the PEX tubing and ProPEX® fittings in their plumbing systems. We've got you covered.

Timeframe and Convenience

Wondering how long the repiping process takes? Generally, it spans 2 to 5 days, depending on your home's size and layout. The system design and pipe replacement also factor in. But fret not – you won't have to vacate your home. While repiping involves significant remodeling activity, you're welcome to stay or enjoy some time out while we work.

Water Interruption and Cost

Your water supply will be turned off briefly on the first day and restored by day's end. If the repipe extends into the next day, at least one bathroom will remain functional overnight. As for cost, it hinges on your home's complexity. For a one-story, two-bath home with standard utilities, expect around $4,500 to $7,000. For a two-story, it's around $7,000 to $15,000. Ask about the scope of work, materials, and warranty when comparing quotes.

The Right Questions to Ask

A home repipe is intricate, involving permits, inspections, and various materials. Don't just settle for the lowest bidder. Ask about insulation, valve types, stub-outs, warranty, and more. Quality matters – hiring a professional, not a handyman, ensures a job that lasts for years. At Brazos Home Services, we use trusted brands like BrassCraft, Uponor, and more. We anchor pipes, insulate, and provide Copper stub-outs. Rest assured, our top-tier service stands the test of time.
