What Factors Influence the Sewer Repair Timeline?

It can be tough to give a time estimate on a sewer pipe repair job in advance of actually seeing and assessing the problem. Every property is different and brings unique challenges. Here are some of the key factors that play a role in how long the timeline will be for finishing the job.

  • Size of the pipes – Larger pipes will take more time and effort to replace.
  • Location of clog or damage – Certain areas of the pipe are easier to access for repairs or cleaning.
  • Type of damage – Have tree roots broken through the pipes? Is corrosion the culprit? Different types of damage will require different approaches.
  • Age and material of the pipes – If the pipes are old and made of outdated material, the time it takes to complete can be longer.
