The Benefits of Trenchless Sewer Line Repair

sewer line repairIf you have ever had your yard and property torn up and destroyed because your sewer line needed to be repaired, you probably found yourself thinking: there has to be a better way! The truth is that there is a better way that many homeowners aren’t aware of: trench-less sewer line repair.

Traditional sewer line repair options, including using a backhoe to dig large trenches, destroys landscaping including grass and flowerbeds. This option also has been known to destroy many driveways and walkways, meaning costly repairs once the sewer line replacement job is finished. In addition, it sometimes requires tearing up some of the street or city sidewalks, damage which you may have to pay out of your own pocket. Some traditional sewer line replacement projects have cost homeowners as much as $20,000.

Traditional sewer line replacement also typically takes a few days, making your life inconvenient and stressful.

Trenchless sewer line repair is a much better option for many reasons including:

Minimal Disruption to Landscaping – Keep your landscaping intact and avoid costly repairs to your yard, driveway and/or city property like streets and sidewalks. Trenchless sewer line repair can be performed underneath patios, driveways and retaining walls. Only two relatively small holes will be dug on your property.

Save Time – Trenchless sewer repair can sometimes be done in just one day, compared to at least a few days for more traditional options.

Save Money – Trenchless options are usually less expensive than traditional methods, and will also save you money by allowing for minimal landscape disruption.

The trenchless option allows for replacement where conventional digging may not be possible or at the very least would be excessively cumbersome. The most common forms of trenchless sewer line replacement are pipe lining and pipe bursting.

These processes begin with an inspection and can be just as effective as traditional pipe installation.
