Don’t Let Your Plumbing Surprise You. Have it Inspected.

Serving Brooklyn Since 1906

If you’re in the process of buying a home, most states or municipalities require that you have the plumbing inspected as part of the home-buying process. It’s also just a good idea to know the shape of the plumbing before making a serious offer.

But, if you have lived in your home for years or have a home that is more than 15 years old, you should consider a plumbing inspection.

Older houses are vulnerable to an array of problems. They can have corroded galvanized piping, hidden joints that are starting to leak and other issues that can’t be seen within a home’s walls.

Your Brooklyn plumbing experts at Petri Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Drain Cleaning want you to rest assured you won’t have to battle water damage in addition to a leaky pipe. An inspection can help you find these issues.

What to Expect

A professional plumbing inspection should be comprehensive. It should also focus on preventative measures the homeowner can take to prevent breakdowns and damage.

Homeowners can expect to pay between $3,000 and $16,000 to replace the plumbing in an average-sized home. Having an idea of the state of your home’s plumbing can help you plan for future expenses.

When a house gets older, some common plumbing problems include:

  • Bowed or buckled pipes caused by home settling
  • Tree root intrusion that can clog sewer lines.
  • A buildup of scum and other debris that can cause clogs.
  • Metal corrosion from older, galvanized pipes or the breakdown of the protective zinc coating on pipes.
  • Bad or outdated repairs that may no longer be up to code.

An inspection will look for these issues, in addition to checking the water meter, shut-off valves and water heater.

What is Recommended

After the inspection, a professional plumber should help you prioritize repairs and future upgrades.

Obviously, leaks and clogs are the more serious issues since they can be an inconvenience that can create more damage later on. But a reliable plumbing service will also help you determine the best next steps to take to update your plumbing.
