Sewer Pipe Repair and Replacements
Did you know the pipes underneath your home and the pipes leading to the sewer main in the street (called “laterals”) can back up and even fail completely? It’s true!
Depending on the type of material from which your pipes were constructed, tree roots and foreign objects can completely block the flow of wastewater, causing your pipes to “belly” or even collapse.
At A.J. Perri, our water line repair services experts have both the tools and the expertise to:
- Understand the current condition of your pipes using sophisticated camera technology.
- Repair the sewer pipe if it is reasonably accessible, adequately sized, and has an acceptable life expectancy after the repair.
- Replace the sewer pipe if it is made of inferior materials, is undersized, bellied or collapsed due to deterioration. A genuinely worry-free solution!
Should it be determined that replacement is the best option, there are several ways to attack the problem, ranging from the least-invasive (trenchless pipe bursting) to the most common method – excavation.

How New Jersey’s Climate Can Affect Your Sewer
New Jersey has a climate with plenty of seasonal variability and a profound amount of moisture, which can harm your home’s sewer.
During heavy snowfall and rain, sewer systems tend to flood (particularly in the north-central area of New Jersey). Severe flooding harms pipelines, sometimes leading to sewage backing up in people’s dwellings.
Moreover, each winter’s cycle of freezing and thawing can lead to broken or cracked pipes, resulting in additional damage to your property. Sometimes, the best option is main sewer line replacement if sewer line repair services won’t address the issue.
In New Jersey’s coastal regions, homes are subject to damage from storm surges and high tides flooding local sewers. Because of the difficulties in fixing a clogged sewer line or damage from such extreme weather events, you’ll want to hire sewer repair and replacement services experts, such as the team at A.J. Perri.
Our professionals offer preventive maintenance services and are standing by to repair any damage to your sewers. We’ll also help you safeguard your home against future storm damage.
