The Pros of Trenchless Repair

Trenchless pipe lining is typically cheaper than traditional methods - because there is less damage done to your property, you also won’t have to worry about the cost of restoring your landscaping once the repairs are done.

The Cons of Trenchless Repair

Trenchless pipe repair is not suitable for some types of plumbing problems. The trenchless approach works best on lateral lines, which run under the surface.
