Take a drive through the Highlands neighborhood. There’s something so charming about the older homes– the smell, the history, the creaks and cranks of floor boards. But, there is something not so charming about older homes and that’s plumbing!
Older homes are notorious for plumbing and all kinds of interior issues in the “guts” of the house. When problems like these arise, it’s easy to become overwhelmed with questions. Did a pipe burst? Is it just one pipe? All of them? Do I really need to replace every single one?! Will I get ripped off?
St. Matthews Plumbing will never pressure you into taking on such a large project unnecessarily. However, if the need for a complete whole house repipe comes up, we are the guys for the job!
How Do I Know to Repipe My House?
