If you are in the unfortunate position of dealing with sewer problems in your home, and you are considering CIPP lining in Glendale, then more than likely, you are finding yourself more confused the more research you do. That is because there are several variations to this specialized service. This article will education you on the most important things that you need to know when shopping for a contractor.
What is CIPP lining in Glendale?
CIPP lining, or cured in place pipe lining, is a state-of-the-art, minimally invasive means of rehabilitating a deteriorated sewer line. This process is accomplished by thoroughly cleaning the faulty sewer line, and then inserting an extremely durable sleeve. This sleeve is composed of an epoxy resin saturated fiberglass cloth. An air-filled bladder ensures a proper shape.
What are the benefits and the restrictions of CIPP lining in Glendale?
The benefit of CIPP lining in Glendale is avoiding invasive demolition to replace a sewer line, and its associated expensive reconstruction costs. This benefit alone often makes this sewer replacement method the obvious choice. There are, however, a few possible restrictions to be considered in order to ensure that your sewer line is indeed a viable candidate for this service. Most importantly, your sewer line must not be collapsed. A sewer line that has reached catastrophic failure cannot serve as a host pipe for the new one. Furthermore, a sagging sewer line that has insufficient slope, will still have insufficient slope after the new epoxy liner is installed. This scenario is far from favorable as well. Other possible restrictions really depend on the company doing the work. One method of CIPP lining in Glendale requires at least two points of entry, while the other requires a minimum of only one. Some companies have the technology to cut out the tie-ins for the secondary sewer lines that tie into the main sewer line after the new sewer has cured, while others simply skip over these sections of sewer line. If one point of demolition is all that you are willing to tolerate, or if your sewer is worn throughout and you need all tie-ins addressed, then you want a company with these unique capabilities.
How much does CIPP lining in Glendale cost?
There is no simple answer to this question. It really depends on several factors. Linear feet is an obvious one, but there are several others. As discussed, there are different methods of this technology. Cutting out any tie-ins for connecting drain lines after installation of the epoxy sewer line certainly influences the price of a job. Also, whether one or more points of access are needed, the depth of each hole plays a role in the price of a job. While the price of a job can only be determined after a qualified professional conducts a very thorough assessment of your sewer line, most replacements cost between $4,000.00 and $9,000.00.
How do I know which contractor to hire for CIPP lining in Glendale?
In this day and age, the internet is a very useful tool. Just as your research has led you to this exact article, the internet can also teach you a bit about the companies in your area that offer CIPP lining in Glendale. It is useful to consider the online reviews that a company has. For companies that you are considering, it is always a good idea to ask for a list of references, preferably of consumers that have had this exact service done on their home. Finally, once you have narrowed down your list of contractors under consideration, ask for proof of licensing and insurance.
