Many homeowners, as well as business owners, do not realize that they are responsible for the sewer line from their home or business out to the street. Sewer and septic lines can erode and crack over time without knowing. A backup or a leak in the pipe often does not mean the entire pipe needs replacing.
Replacing your sewer or septic line involves excavating the old pipe to install a new one. This is where hiring the right plumbing contractor is very important. We have our own excavating equipment, and our trained professionals know exactly how to dig strategically to minimize the amount of excavation needed to complete the project.
The overall cost for sewer line replacement depends on the access to excavation, the complexities of the access example: expensive shrubbery, trees, decks, large rocks etc. In addition, the length of the pipe that needs to be replaced and the replacement costs of the items that need to be removed before excavation.
