Your Plumbing Pipe Repair questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does it cost to repair a pipe?

Plumbers charge $150 to $850 to repair plumbing pipes on average. Repairing or replacing a drain pipe costs $100 to $800 for minor repairs. Repairing burst or frozen pipes costs $400 to $2,000, depending on the extent of the damage. This includes finding the source of the leak, if you haven't already, and cleaning up any water damage.

Water damage can only ever get worse, so make sure to shut off your water main and call a plumber as soon as you're aware of a leak.

Does homeowners' insurance cover pipe repair?

Most homeowners' insurance policies cover sudden, unexpected water damage. However, it’s typically not covered if you could have prevented it with the proper maintenance. If you're aware that a pipe has been leaking for some time, and you don't fix it, your insurance probably won't cover the repairs.

If you're not sure what your policy covers, check with your homeowners' insurance.

What are the signs of a burst pipe?

The following signs may indicate that one or more pipes have burst:

  • Indoor flooding
  • Water dripping on the walls or ceiling
  • Reduced water pressure
  • Discolored water
  • A sulfur-like smell

How long does pipe repair take?

The time it takes to repair a pipe depends on the extent of the damage and the pipe material. Simple repairs to exposed PEX pipes may take a few minutes, while copper pipe behind a wall may take 1 to 4 hours. Underground sewer pipe repairs typically take 3 hours to 2 days.

Can you repair cracked PVC pipe?

An experienced plumber can repair any pipe material, including:

  • PVC
  • CPVC
  • Copper
  • Iron
  • PEX
  • Steel
  • Concrete

How do I choose a pipe repair service?

Start by searching our list of plumbers, then:

  • Get at least three free estimates to compare.
  • Examine reviews and previous work on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Choose a company that's licensed, bonded, and experienced.
  • Verify their insurance and warranty.
  • Get a written estimate, contract, and warranty before work begins.
  • Follow a payment schedule instead of making large payments up front.

What questions should I ask pipe repair contractors?

When looking for a pipe repair company near you, ask the following questions:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Are you licensed, insured, and bonded?
  • Do you offer same-day service?
  • How do you handle water damage?
  • How long will the repair take?
  • What additional fees can I expect for this kind of job?
  • Do you offer a warranty for your work?
  • Will you give me a written estimate?
