Sewer Pipe Repair and Replacement - A.J. Perri Skip to content

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, we have both the tools and the expertise to:

  1. Understand the current condition of your pipes using sophisticated camera technology.
  2. Repair the sewer pipe if it is reasonably accessible, properly sized, and has an acceptable life expectancy remaining after the repair.
  3. Replace the sewer pipe if it is made of inferior materials, is undersized, or is bellied or collapsed due to deterioration. A truly worry-free solution!

Should it be determined that replacement is the best option, there are several ways to attack the problem, ranging from least-invasive (trenchless pipe bursting) to the most common method – excavation.
