Water & Sewer Line Installation, Repair and Inspection
Of all the events that could damage your Raleigh home or business, several stand out as having severe consequences, including:

- Your water is turning color or tainted.

The Cost of Water or Sewer Line Installation
The City of Raleigh maintains the pipes up to the point where they cross into your property. From that point, you are responsible. Unfortunately, most homeowners’ insurance plans don’t cover water or sewer line repair or replacement. The price depends of a number of factors, including:
- How difficult it is to access the pipes
- How deep your pipes are buried
- What the terrain is like
- How difficult the regulatory requirements are
