How Long Does It Take to Repipe a House?

The timeline for repiping a house depends on the size of the home. Smaller homes can take as little as two days, while larger homes may require an entire week. The process is divided into three parts: refinishing, municipal inspection, and repairing any holes in the drywall. On average, it takes 3 to 5 days to complete the job.

However, this can vary depending on the size of the household. A professional estimator can provide more details during a free estimate. If your house is in need of plumbing work, has lead pipes, or is undergoing a remodel, it's time to repipe your home. A qualified professional can advise you on whether it's better to do a complete home repair or just reconnect a single section.

Repairing a home can be expensive and risky if done incorrectly, so it's important to choose wisely when selecting a plumber. With the right equipment, repiping a house can be a quick and stress-free process. A 3-bathroom house (typically 2 floors) requires more labor, material, and patches to carry the pipes throughout the house and usually takes 2 days to complete.
