Laying sewer pipes in the ground under foundation

There are a lot of factors that need to be taken into consideration when it comes to deciding whether you will stay or move during sewer repairs. Ultimately, it will depend on the size and extent of the project, as well as the anticipated time frame of the sewer repair in Kent, WA.

Before deciding, see to it that the contractor provides you with a precise time estimate for the project so you can gauge and prepare. At Bob Oates Sewer and Rooter, we make it a point to get our sewer repair services done efficiently and on time. So most times, relocating is not necessary, but some benefits accrue from it. Here are a couple of them:

A More Efficient Workflow

When it comes to significant renovation work, your entire home will initially resemble a filthy construction site. It would save the employees a bunch of time if you relocated out, which gives them access to all areas of the house. When you leave, they get adequate space for your sewer pipe line repair.

When we come to replace sewer line, we know that the pipe system can be intricate, challenging to access, and just complex in general. And while we make it a point to be as fast and efficient, working with a pipe system can get disruptive. Moving out temporarily will spare you from the hassle of dealing with the noise and dirt.

Water Supply Interruptions Won’t Be a Concern

Major undertakings such as a sewer line replacement necessitate turning the water supply off just so our team could minimize any potential problems. As for repairs, we do the same. And while the water won’t be shut off the whole time, you’ll have to bear with the water supply interruptions should you choose to stay in while the repairs are underway.

Whether or not you move out during sewer repairs, we’ll make sure to get the job done right. Contact us for an appointment.
