The most common cause of sewer line problems is tree roots. You may love the beautiful trees in your yard but they can spell trouble for your sewer lines. The tree roots are always seeking moisture and, over time, a sewer pipe can develop tiny little cracks that leak out small amounts of moisture. However, it is enough moisture to attract the tree roots. Soon the tree roots will make their way into the sewer pipe and cause the pipe to leak or break. This can mean major repairs for the homeowner. However, with sewer pipe repair and replacement the repairs can be made without tearing up your yard.

We can repair your sewer pipe using a method that only involves digging one hole in the location of the broken sewer pipe. One method of sewer pipe repair is usually referred to as pipe lining. In this case a pipe liner or a flexible tube that is coated with resin in inserted into the pipe, then inflated. The resin will harden in a couple of hours and it creates sort of a pipe in a pipe dynamic.
Another method of sewer pipe repair is referred to as pipe bursting. This method usually requires digging two holes. The access holes are dug on either side of the lateral. The procedure for this method requires that a replacement pipe is pulled through the damaged pipe which results in fracturing the damaged pipe on the outside.
Both methods of sewer pipe repair are durable and can last up to 50 years. In fact, sewer pipe repair can save you money and preserve the state of your yard. On the other hand, the traditional sewer piper repair method that requires digging a trench in your yard and replacing the entire sewer pipe can cost you thousands of dollars.
