Do you have persistent clogging in multiple drains in your Baltimore home? Has your water bill suddenly skyrocketed? Have you recently noticed foul odors? You may need to repair or replace your underground sewer line. The oldest parts of Baltimore city, like Federal Hill and Mt. Vernon, began installing sewers around 1800, meaning, that some sewers in Baltimore can be well over 100 years old! If you suspect your sewer lines need repair, you must take immediate action and contact an experienced service technician to prevent further damage. If you're in the Baltimore, MD, area, you're in luck! The expert plumbers at Michael & Son can help you resolve your sewer line issues, fast and efficiently.
What's the cost to repair a sewer line in Baltimore?
There are a variety of factors that impact the cost of your sewer line repair. Still, homeowners in Baltimore can expect to pay between:
- Low $2,000
- Our Average $3,500
- High $5,000
How Michael & Son determines your estimate
- We locate the sewer line. The location and length of the repair needed will significantly impact repair costs. If the problem area is located directly under your paved driveway or under the concrete slab of your home, the contractor will need to use special tools to break up the concrete. The additional time and expensive machinery needed for this job will raise the project's overall cost. Work permits, excavation costs, and lawn repair also contribute to the cost.
- We identify the cause of the damage. Sewer lines can break, burst, and clog. It's also not uncommon for sewer lines in Baltimore to freeze during severe winters. Before your plumber gives you an estimate, they will need to determine the cause of your sewer line problems. When pipes are clogged, they can often be cleared, but if tree roots invade your sewer line, the pipe will likely need to be replaced, increasing your cost.
- We specify the extent of the damage. If the damage to your sewage pipe is minimal, solutions like pipelining can be used to repair the damage without replacing a portion or all of the pipe. If your sewer lines are old (as many in Baltimore are), or the damage is severe, your repair may require replacing some or all of the pipe/sewer network, increasing your repair costs.
- We estimate labor costs. Once we know the cause and extent of the damage, we then determine the hours it will take to finish the job. That labor cost is clearly defined in the estimate we hand you.
