How Much Does Sewer Line Replacement Cost?
You will see wide ranging estimates online for costs to repair or replace a sewer line. You may also want to contact your homeowners insurance to see if you have coverage for the type of issue you are experiencing. The reason you see repair cost ranges as wide as $1000 to $4000 and replacement costs from $1400 to $20000 is because until a qualified technician checks the situation there is no way to know what level of service is necessary.
The cost will vary based upon several factors such as:
- Pipe Material (ABS, cast iron, galvanized steel, PVC)
- Extent of Damage
- Accessibility of the problem area
- Repair vs. Replace
- Potential Cleanup Expenses
