Who needs sewer lining?
Sewer and drain lining is primarily for customers who are tied into public sewer systems. For example, most of the liners we install are in older municipal districts such as the City of Canandaigua, the village of Fairport, or Brighton, NY. The infrastructure that is underground was installed seventy to ninety years ago and is beginning to fail. There are literally thousands homes with clay sewer pipe with tree root intrusion.
The process for which we install liners and replace old or broken sewer lines is extremely efficient. The first stage consists of cleaning and preparing the existing drain line. This can include cutting out roots, descaling, and jetting the sewer line. Afterwards measurements are taken, the liner built, and the epoxy is mixed. The resin is then poured into the new liner material, wound up inside an inversion drum, and installed from a basement or a lawn cleanout. After it is finished curing, the final result is a brand new, smooth, transitionless pipe that extends from a basement all the way into the middle of the street. No excavation or digging is required, and basement penetrations are minimal, if needed at all.

Mark and Matt have done excellent work for me on two separate occasions. They are very easy to communicate with, receptive to your questions and ideas. They are very honest and want the job done right. They came across an unexpected issue with a broken pipe on one of my jobs. Instead of hiding it from me and taking a shortcut that would save them time, they showed me the issue, gave me options to fix it, added more time to their day and did it the right way. If I have any issues that fall into their scope of work, they are the only ones I will call.
Fast, professional and responsive. Best experience I’ve ever had working with a tradesman. Highly recommend.
