Sewer Line Repair or Replacement Shaker heights, Ohio

In Shaker heights, OH, your sewer line is the drain piping system that connects your house main drain with the Shaker heights, OH sewer system or your private septic tank. When installed, your main drain was watertight and the joints are impenetrable. Due to the way the pipe sections are joined or earth movements (earthquakes and earth settling) the joints can be compromised and roots from trees and bushes can find a way into the sewer system. Over time these roots or pipe movements can prevent proper water flow and your sewer backs up.

VIP Plumbing Inc. offers drain cleaning and sewer pipe replacement services. We can cut the roots that are growing in the pipes to allow the water to flow freely again. However, just like pruning a bush, the roots will grow back, often in greater size, strength and number than before. In Shaker heights, OH, there are several options to consider for this problem. We can simply cable the drain, treat the sewer line chemically with a product, which retards root growth, or replace the broken pipes.

Call VIP Plumbing Inc. to have our sewer and drain experts evaluate your challenges.

Completion of basement bathroom, breaking and cementing the floor, water main, digging up the back of the house and storm sewer replacement. I added up the labor and materials for the water main replacement and bathroom underground work to come up with this portion of the original estimate. I also included some extra money to pay the suppliers for all the materials delivered. I had included 20 tons of #57 stone which is what we have used so far. The rest of the #304's to backfill with are listed below. I have one bill from the dirt delivery but it does not seem like all the dirt is included on it so I will bill for what I have and keep you posted. You will also have a bill for the stone in the back of the house. They hauled away a total of 7 loads and dumped the two in the back.
