Pipes and Drainage

Pipes and Drainage

We all absolutely love our homes, however, we sometimes ignore the ‘behind the scenes’. With time your home becomes aged, as does the materials that made up your original shiny new home when it was first built. Things such as the furniture, pipes, wires and things of that nature. WIth pipes and drainage systems, you will usually find yourself aware of the situation due to a leakage or breakage. In this article we will discuss methods of fixing your drainage but also bring back their aesthetics, as large portions of the drainage facilities are on show.
Drain’s and pipes which are externally located are more prone to damage. They get damaged for a multitude of reasons, whether it be the weather (pun intended) or even cats balancing on the pipes like gymnasts on beams, a lot of the time areas with higher humidity like Brighton have higher risks of damaged pipes.
Usually when we look to the simple way of fixing the matter and replacing the pipes, it isn’t as straightforward as it may seem. Due to having to dig trenches and other matters of installation, this obviously comes with a hefty price tag. So another resolution would be to reline the pipes. This is a process of repair as oppose to replace them which would be the go-to-solution in most other aspects of home maintenance.
Save money, time and effort – Relining techniques do not require digging, so this can save a lot of time, effort and digging costs.
Repair a range of damages – These techniques can be used to repair leaking joints, tree root intrusions, big cracks and minor and major pipe failures.
Varied applications – Relining is suitable for domestic, industrial and commercial applications.
Permanent solution – Relining is a permanent solution to all the drainage related problems and offers highly improved flow characteristics.

But this still does not solve the look of old and tired pipes on display on your lovely home, so another great solution from us would be to consider sandblasting the brickwork and pipes around your home! With these tips you could save yourself a fortune!
