Sewer lines are one of those things we don't think about until something goes wrong. You start noticing the problem when you hear strange, gurgling noises from the toilet, when water drains more slowly than usual, or when a smelly sinkhole appears in your yard.
So, how do you deal a broken sewer line in Northern NJ or Southern NY? How do you know you can trust the sewer contractor? How much will it cost for the sewer line replacement or repair? I'll do my best to explain all of these questions and much more below.
Sewer Line Replacement Costs
So what does it cost to for a sewer line replacement? That depends on a bunch of items. It could cost anywhere from $2,000 to $15,000. I know...that's kind of a big rang. Here are a few of the main factors than can affect your price.
Using the traditional dig and replace method, you’ll pay around $50/foot.
The pipe busting process uses a machine to push new line into the old one’s place. This costs approximately $50 to $75 per foot.
Another option is what’s called slip lining. Using this method, a new sewer line is placed inside the old one. Slip lining can cost between $25 to $75 per foot.
Trees: If we have to chop down some trees and grind up some stumps just to dig up the sewer line, this will bump up the cost.
If you're unlucky enough to have all three of these issues, expect to pay anywhere from $10,000 to $15,000.
Sewer Line Repair Costs
So what about sewer line repair...not replacement? How much does it cost for a sewer main line repair? If there's cracked or rotten sewer pipe, you could replace individual sections of pipe. This could cost you anywhere from $50 - $200 per foot.
At times, you may get away with a small repair work. However, if your sewer line is old or the problem is of a large magnitude, you're left with no choice but replacing the entire sewer line. The main sewer line replacement cost is determined by several factors, such as type of sewer line, mode of replacement, and the other complications involved.
Important note: if there's one section of sewer pipe that needs to be replaced, chances are the rest are soon to go as well. It's therefore usually in a homeowner’s best interest to consider replacing the whole sewer main.
