Most people, if not all, would prefer not to have a beautiful landscape destroyed when there’s a need for sewer or water line repairs.

One of our specializations is trenchless pipe repair, a cost-effective approach to pipe restoration we offer in Chesaning, MI, and nearby areas we also serve.
UNDERSTANDING TRENCHLESS TECHNOLOGY
Trenchless technology was first developed in the 1970s. It has since been fine-tuned to the point where it’s much more reliable and affordable. We have the skills and modern equipment required to repair and restore sewer and water lines with dig-free methods.
Rehabilitating sewer pipes through the use of trenchless methods has grown in popularity in recent years. One approach is re-lining the damaged pipe with an inner pipe lining material. Cured-in place pipelining, for one, allows us to repair pipes from within by inserting a liner through an existing entry point. The liner is impregnated with resin, which hardens and creates a stronger pipe.
FACTORS TO CONSIDER BEFORE WE RECOMMEND TRENCHLESS REPAIRS
There are many times when trenchless repairs can be made. However, it’s also important to make sure trenchless methods are appropriate. We do this by inspecting the pipe first. In order for trenchless repairs to be made, the pipe needs to be stable. Other factors to consider before we recommend trenchless repair include:
- The overall condition of the pipe
- How accessible it is
- The extent of the damage
- Whether or not repair is more cost-effective than replacement
THE PROCESS WE FOLLOW
As we mentioned above, we will have to inspect the water or sewer line first. If conditions are suitable for trenchless repair, we proceed with cleaning the affected pipe. Our experienced team then inserts a liner into the pipe so a durable coating can be applied to the inside of the pipe. What this does is create a solid new inside surface that’s free of flaws. Our full range of trenchless services include:
- High-speed pipe descaling
- Crack and leak repair
THE BENEFITS OF NO-DIG REPAIRS
Trenchless pipe repair is extremely beneficial. The work area is limited and the work itself is often completed within a day. It’s also a highly flexible process in that many types of sewer and water lines can be repaired and restored with trenchless techniques. What’s more, the newly applied coating is extremely durable and resistant to damage. This means results are long-lasting, which further maximizes your savings.
Extensive digging is not a part of this process, so you can expect that not only will the repairs be quicker but the cleanup as well, if any. Take note that traditional repair projects could take several days.
Many properties have sewer lines running under beautiful and expensive landscaping. Rest assured that our minimally invasive repairs also preserve the surrounding landscaping. We may only require small holes to access the sewer pipe. Thus, we get to complete the job in a streamlined process. That also makes our methods environmentally friendly, eliminating any risk of hitting another line.
You can also expect a more cost-effective solution. While sewer line issues are usually the most expensive problems homeowners face, the use of trenchless methods means less labor is necessary. That in turn reduces the actual cost. Additionally, our repairs always bring long-term benefits, as these liners and piping will not suffer from rust or corrosion, allowing them to last up to 100 years.
