At USA Pipe Repair, we always want to make sure your pipes are running properly. Cracked pipes can cause serious issues for your residential, commercial, or municipal property that need to be serviced right away. When your pipes are experiencing problems, you should always call a professional to service your pipes the right way. In order to properly repair your cracked pipes, our team of expert technicians will provide your Virginia property with inspection, cleaning, repair, or replacement services.
Reasons Your Pipes Could Crack
There are a variety of reasons your pipes could experiencing cracking. When your pipes are experiencing smaller cracks that still allow for the structure of the pipe to be restored, we can provide you with trenchless pipe lining. Trenchless pipe lining is a simple trenchless technique that allows us to create a new pipe inside of your existing one without the need for digging trenches across your property.
If you have larger cracks within your pipes that cannot be solved with lining, our team will recommend pipe bursting. Pipe bursting is a trenchless technology that replaces your cracked or severely damaged pipe in conjunction with the installation of a new pipe. The trenchless technologies we use at USA Pipe Repair are extremely versatile and durable. In addition, while Excavations may not always seem like a practical option, it could be needed in pipe replacement situations where your cracked pipes need a service other than trenchless technologies.
Pipe Materials and How They Crack
Our team at USA Pipe Repair understands that various pipe materials may be more susceptible to cracking than others. If your pipes are older in age, they are more susceptible to cracking due to their constant wear and tear. Sewer and drain pipes made of cast iron are likely to collapse due to age, wear and tear, poor construction, corrosion, rust, or erosion, but they aren’t likely to crack without due cause. On the other hand, clay pipes will crack due to their chemical makeup- as will PVC pipes. Extreme temperature changes, an excess of pressure, changing pressure in the air or underground, or other means can easily cause these materials to crack. If your plumbing materials are older in age or if you don’t know what kind of pipe material your system is made from, you should contact your team of local professionals today.
