A copper repipe involves the removal or bypass of existing plumbing pipes, replaced by brand new, clean copper pipes. The copper pipes used are made from the finest quality copper available and comes with a lifetime guarantee. The cost of a copper repipe varies on your home size and plumbing layout.
