As home ages, there are certain components that experience more problems than others. One of the biggest offenders is residential plumbing. This is especially true of any home built prior to the 2000’s. These homes were commonly constructed with galvanized steel plumbing. This material degrades over time, developing leaks and accumulating rust fragments that travel through the lines to eventually block joints and filters. Some people learn to live with this, but more progressive homeowners turn to experts of Residential Plumbing in Binghamton, NY. These contractors can help replace bad pipes, install new plumbing where it’s needed, re-pipe an entire home, or excavate damaged drain lines.
