Copper Pipe Repair & Replacement

 

Copper Pipe Repair & Replacement

Due to aging and use, copper supply pipes corrode from contaminants and chemicals in the water. This corrosion leads to pitting, pinhole leaks, and ultimately, catastrophic failure, often resulting in flood damage to homes.

Our licensed technicians are trained to identify and fix copper pipe issues from pinhole leaks to emergency pipe bursts, and can repair or replace your home supply pipes based on an initial assessment.

Common Signs of a Leak:

  • Bubbling paint
  • Drywall cracks
  • Staining in the ceiling
  • Higher than normal water bills
  • Visible mold near pipes

Issues with Copper Pipes:

  • Corrosion and Pinhole Leaks – As pipes age and contaminants and chemicals in the water begin to break down the inside of your pipes, leaks can occur through pitting corrosion.
  • Freezing & Bursting – Drastic drops in temperatures during the winter months cause water inside the pipe to freeze and expand. This type of issue is considered an emergency repair and should be handled by an expert plumber.
  • Buildup of Copper in Water – Long-term pipe corrosion can produce elevated levels of copper in your water, evident with water that is discolored and metallic is taste.
