Lakewood, CO, is fortunate to have many beautiful, historic homes. But older homes come with a specific set of problems. Before 1970, homes were built using cast iron pipes for sewage lines. The iron pipes were thought to be practically indestructible, but it turns out they could not stand the test of time.
The process of basement sewer line replacement involves several steps, including the following:
- Jackhammering the concrete from the basement floor
- Removing soil to expose old pipes
- Removing concrete and dirt debris
- Removing the cast iron pipe
- Replacing the cast iron pipe with new PVC pipe
- Properly bedding the area with crushed granite
- Replacing soil and compacting the area
- Pouring new concrete
- Replacing flooring
During the process, your Sewer Lines Only team will take all necessary precautions to protect your home and property, and we will make sure the new line is working properly before the job is done.
If your home was built before 1970 and the interior sewer lines have not been replaced, don’t wait for the worst to happen. Call us today for a new sewer line installation.
