Residential Pipe Inspection Allows You to See the Current Condition of your Sanitary Pipe
Residential Pipe Inspection is the best tool to find sewer pipe defects and ensure proper installation of new lines. A residential pipe inspection can accurately locate problem areas in pipes that can be causing slow drainage or frequent back-ups.
- show you the condition of your sewer pipe so you can find issues before they become serious
- locate blockages or other defects that you may not be aware of
- assist with repair, replacement, or maintenance recommendations so you don’t have to dig up your yard unnecessarily
Buying a Home?
Sanitary service inspections are becoming a common add-on for home purchase inspections in both new and old homes in Calgary. A video inspection will show you the current condition of your service pipe so you can find problems and have them addressed prior to making a large purchase. Sewer repairs can be costly, inconvenient, and destructive to property both inside and outside your home. In addition to the repairs, you could also experience damage caused by problems in the pipe if they are not found. Sewer back-ups are not fun. Serious back-ups can require full removal and replacement of flooring, drywall, and furniture, and disaster restoration. If unnoticed they can also damage keepsakes, heirlooms, and other important items stored in basements.
If you are already experiencing frequent back-ups and are having costly auger maintenance completed once or twice a year to keep your line flowing a video inspection could bring light to the problem. There could be a serious problem developing such as a separating joint or other defect causing the pipe to shift which could result in total loss of service if left to deteriorate. Or maybe, there’s aggressive root intrusion. Over time augering will increase the frequency maintenance is required to keep roots at bay. A video inspection could reveal a cost-effective solution such as trenchless pipe lining to permanently stop the roots. Depending how long you’ve been servicing your line within 4-5 years you could have paid for a liner and eliminated the worry of future back-ups and problems.
Completing Renovations or Landscaping?
Before you spend your hard-earned money updating your basement or making your backyard an outdoor oasis consider a residential pipe inspection to check the condition of what’s beneath. Sadly, we often see newly landscaped yards and beautiful renovated basements destroyed due to unknown sewer problems causing back-ups and requiring emergency pipe repair or replacement. Homeowners unaware of where their lines are located have had garages and decks built overtop not knowing the problems that will arise in the future. Thuro has experience helping homeowners in these situations and completing difficult and costly repairs requiring deck or concrete removal (including inside garages). However, an inexpensive inspection beforehand can save you time, money, and stress.
