Are you thinking about a full home repipe but are unsure about how long it will take?

We've got you covered! Repiping your home has never been easier or quicker.

In this article, we will discuss the duration of a house repiping project, the common factors that can affect the timeline, and why choosing a professional repipe company is the best option for your repiping needs.

How Long Does it Take to Repipe a House?

At Repipe Specialists, we prioritize efficiency and minimal disruption in our repiping services. Our expert team typically completes a full home repipe within a single day, ensuring that your water supply is restored by the end of the day.

However, the time required for a full home repipe can vary widely among different companies. Factors such as company expertise, the size of the house, and the complexity of the plumbing system play a significant role.

Generalist plumbers, who do not specialize in complete home repipes, might need several weeks to finish the job. This extended timeline can result in higher costs and greater inconvenience for homeowners.

Our innovative  One Stop Repipe™ process sets us apart, allowing us to efficiently handle complete repipes, typically within one day. If necessary, a second day is allocated for wall patching and finishing touches.

We provide comprehensive services, including handling drywall repairs, obtaining building permits, and ensuring that water is available at the end of each working day, even if the project extends beyond one day.

Common Factors Affecting Repiping Time

When considering a full home repiping project, several common factors come into play that significantly impact the overall timeline for completion.

1. Size of the repiping job: The main factor is the size and layout of the house. Larger homes with complex plumbing systems can take longer to repipe than smaller, more straightforward structures.

2. Repiping material: PEX is highly flexible, allowing for easy installation around corners, through walls and attics, and through existing structures, and is generally quicker to install than copper pipe. We cover the pros and cons of PEX vs copper in this article.

3. Pipe accessibility: The level of accessibility to existing plumbing infrastructure is another critical factor. In cases where pipes are concealed within walls or under floors, the project may take longer due to the need for extensive demolition and reconstruction.

4. Experience of repiping company: The experience and efficiency of the plumbing team play a crucial role in ensuring that a repiping job is done professionally and smoothly. An expert crew can streamline the process, ensuring a faster and more efficient repiping project while maintaining high-quality workmanship.


Why Choose a Professional Repiping Company?

When a company specializes in whole-home repiping (as we do here at Repipe Specialists-in fact, it's all we do), they can direct all their efforts toward excelling at that one service.

Because our crews are repiping specialists, they can typically complete the job in fewer man-hours compared to general plumbers. This means less time for you and fewer man-hours, resulting in lower costs overall.

The Repipe Specialists Team

At Repipe Specialists, we can deliver a whole home repipe at a lower cost, offering a more convenient overall experience, all while maintaining a quality standard equivalent to or better than that of a generalist plumber.

Professional repiping companies have the scale to purchase repipe materials in bulk at a lower price than generalist plumbers, which directly translates into savings for the customer.

Since our crews undergo a comprehensive repipe certification process involving online and on-site training, and each of them performs several repipes per week, they naturally gain the expertise that makes them more efficient and cost-effective than plumbers who only occasionally undertake whole home repipes.
