Are you thinking of repiping but are tossing up between using a repipe company and a plumber?

Are you unsure what the differences are between a plumber and specialist?

We are here to help you! In this article, we will investigate the difference between a plumber and repiping company, whether you should use a repipe company or a plumber, and the benefits of choosing a repipe specialist when it comes to your home's pipes.

Plumber vs. Repipe Company: What's the Difference?

Although plumbers and repipe companies have several overlapping skill sets, what they actually do is very different.

While plumbers are highly skilled professionals who can address a wide range of plumbing problems, they often specialize in repairs and maintenance. On the other hand, a repipe company, like ours, focuses exclusively on comprehensive home repiping solutions.

When you choose a repipe company for your home, you're selecting specialists who thoroughly assess your plumbing, provide long-term solutions, and utilize high-quality materials like PEX tubing and copper piping to ensure your entire plumbing system functions optimally for years to come.

This level of dedication and specialization is what sets repipe companies apart, offering a comprehensive and efficient solution to your home's plumbing needs.


Should I Use A Repipe Company or a Plumber?

When faced with plumbing issues in your home, the decision between choosing a repipe company or a plumber can significantly impact the long-term well-being of your plumbing system.

While plumbers are undoubtedly skilled professionals, they often excel at addressing immediate, localized problems. However, if your home is experiencing widespread issues, opting for a repipe company is the wise choice. Systemic plumbing issues can include old CPVC pipingold polybutylene pipesleaks under slabspinhole copper leaks, or failing galvanized plumbing.
