Being a homeowner has its perks. Dealing with maintenance and repairs isn’t one of them. Unfortunately, there comes a time in every house’s life when things start falling apart. Your houses’ pipes are one of those things. How long your pipes last can depend on several factors, such as what year your home was built, the type of pipes you have, and how those pipes have been treated over the years. You can make minor repairs here and there, but you can’t avoid the inevitable. Eventually all the pipes in your house will need to be replaced. This is known as repiping.
