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

Cleber Soares P.
What a great experience it turned out to be. So quick to respond whenever I contacted him. I passed the project, and they started soon after. They told me it would be 5 days of work and they got the schedule right. He made some suggestions for things (my wife loved the suggestions). Very professional, the work was beautiful, honest and reliable, I simply couldn’t be happier with the result. I would definitely not hesitate to use again and would recommend to friends, family and neighbors.

We have had nothing but great service from Mr. Dunphy. We have used his service at least four times in the past year regard our aging church on different matters from replacing old heating pipes to our drains. He completed all tasks quickly and solved our problems. He was respectful of our property and cleaned up the work site when done. I highly recommend Mr. Dunphy.
