Many homeowners do not realize that they are responsible for any problems that
may occur in the sewer system running from their home to the street. A blockage in the
sewer line can back up into the house and cause a mess to clean up and potentially thousands of dollars in
property damage. In many cases such backups are caused
by root intrusion in the sewer line, which can be spotted during a
inspection, and prevented with a proactive maintenance program.
In the case of a broken pipe, a fix is needed which is a costly prospect especially for a new
homeowner. We would like nothing more than
to evaluate every pipe as "clean and clear" but if there is a problem, the potential
homeowner needs to be aware of their choices in order to make an informed
decision in regards to sewer line replacement or rehabilitation.
