Repiping a house restores, repairs, and/or replaces the pipes that are installed in your house and is often done because the water pressure is low.  Low water pressure, if you’re experiencing it, often means your pipes are corroding and are in need of a replacement.  Since these pipes are hidden within the walls of your house, the cost to repipe a house can be expensive and messy.

The cost to repipe a house usually depends on the type of pipes you’re going to use, the contractor performing the job, the size of the home, geographical location and complexity of the job.

How much did you spend?

Was it worth it?  

  1. Rob (Highland Park,  nj) paid $5000+ and said:

    I own several properties and am a landlord. One of my properties was in an older district and after several leaks and tenants complaints I ended up repiping a house with 3200 sq footage. It was expensive! For another property someone had told me about the alternative which is relining and now that is always the route I will take. I spent about 7000 dollars less and didnt have to ask my tenants to leave while walls were being broken. I strongly encourage people to look into that if they are considering repiping just my two cents and way to pay it forward

    Was it worth it? No
