The Cons of Trenchless Sewer Repair

When you add in the costs of laying new cement and/or replacing landscaping, trenchless sewer repair usually costs the same or less than traditional methods.
  • It doesn’t work on badly damaged pipes. If your sewer lines have extensive cracks or breaks, trenchless pipe repair may not be able to deal with the issues you’re having. If your plumber thinks this is the case for you, he will notify you and talk you through the available options.
