What's the cost to repair a sewer line in Richmond, VA?

There are a variety of factors that will impact the cost of your sewer line repair, but the majority of sewer line repairs in Richmond tend to fall within this price range:

  • Low $7,500
  • Our Average $12,000
  • High $18,000

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 overall cost of the project. Work permits, excavation costs, and lawn repair contribute to the cost as well.
  • We identify the cause of the damage. Sewer lines can break, burst, and clog. It's also not uncommon for sewer lines in Richmond 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, which will increase your cost.
  • We determine 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 having to replace a portion or all of the pipe. If your sewer lines are old, or the damage to them is severe enough, your repair may require replacing some or all of the pipe/sewer network which will increase your repair costs.
  • We estimate the number of hours for the job. 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.
